Dysport® is an FDA-approved prescription injection that smooths moderate to severe wrinkles between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes without affecting the movements or expressions of the rest of the face. You can achieve the effect of a browlift and reduce wrinkles without surgery or treatments like chemical peels that require healing time. Frown lines are minimized, and the eye area opens up, brightening and refreshing your expression.
Non-Surgical Browlift with a Natural Look
Other procedures and treatments can reduce crow’s feet and wrinkles around the eyes or give you a browlift, but most of them are more invasive than Dysport®. This treatment involves a small series of injections around the eyes and on the forehead between and above the eyebrows. Like Botox, Dysport® is made from a purified protein and works in a similar way.
The Difference between Dysport® and Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are injected under the skin to plump out the tissues and remove lines like crow’s feet and lip lines. Some fillers are designed to trigger the body’s own production of collagen, so a natural filling effect takes place, while others are a gel that pushes the skin up, lessening wrinkles. Dysport® smooths lines and wrinkles caused by repeated muscles movements over time by relaxing the underlying muscles. The rest of your face can move naturally because the injections are carefully targeted to specific areas on the forehead and around the eyes.
A single treatment with Dysport® takes 10 to 20 minutes, and typically no healing or downtime is necessary. The most common side effects are minor, like injection site pain, injection site skin reactions or minor swelling. Most patients see results within just a few days after the treatment and can expect the results to last up to four months.
Repeated treatments over time with Dysport® should reduce wrinkles and crow’s feet and provide a browlift in the same way as the first treatment, so it’s an ideal long-term solution for patients who don’t want to undergo more aggressive procedures.
