Are you struggling with dynamic wrinkles – the lines that become more pronounced when you move your face? Are these wrinkles around your eyebrows leaving you looking angrier and more frustrated than you really are, or even older? Then you may be interested in Dysport, an injectable that softens out these harsh lines, leaving you looking happier, more approachable, and younger. To learn more about how this incredible treatment, offered here at Tru Male Medical in Oak Brook, IL, can benefit you, read on.
How Long Does Dysport Last?
While the exact length of time can vary from person to person depending on factors such as their age, lifestyle, and skin type, the effects of this treatment will generally last for around three to four months. During this time, you’ll be able to enjoy soft, smooth skin that helps you look younger and enjoy a more neutral expression. When you notice the effects start to wear off, you may wish to repeat the treatment in order to prolong the effects. Many of our patients do this, enjoying striking results again and again!
What Exactly Is This Treatment?
This is a type of botulinum toxin that is injected into the skin to help reduce the appearance of dynamic fine lines and wrinkles. It works by temporarily freezing muscle activity, which stops the skin on top from creasing as you move your face; the result is a smoother, more youthful look. It also has medical uses for treating muscle spasms and other movement disorders. Injections are administered by a doctor or trained medical professional, such as a member of our expert staff here at Tru Male Medical.
What Are Dynamic Wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that form due to muscle movement. They are also sometimes called expression lines or laugh lines. Dynamic wrinkles typically appear all over the face, including the eyes and mouth, but this treatment is generally used specifically around the forehead. There are a number of different factors that can contribute to the formation of dynamic wrinkles, including genetics, sun damage, and smoking. Additionally, as we age, our skin becomes thinner and less elastic, which can also lead to the formation of dynamic wrinkles.
What Is the Difference Between Dysport and Botox?
Both treatments use botulinum toxin to inhibit muscle movement in order to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, but Dysport tends to spread out over a larger area than Botox, making it ideal for treating larger areas of the face such as the forehead. It also works more quickly than Botox, with results typically appearing within two to three days. Since the treatment only lasts for approximately three months, some people prefer Botox as it requires less frequent maintenance treatments and offers longer-lasting results.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
This injectable treatment has a multitude of benefits that go way beyond reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These include:
- Softer, smoother skin texture
- Improved facial volume and contour
- Fewer emotions reflected on your face, giving you a more neutral look
- A more youthful appearance overall
- More confidence thanks to your new look
What Will My Treatment Be Like?
An Initial Consultation
The first step of your journey will be to come in for a chat with a member of our team. This will be your opportunity to tell us what’s been bothering you with your skin, and we can make sure this treatment will be the best way to remedy it. Well also go over your medical history, ensuring you’re a healthy and suitable candidate; unfortunately, some medical conditions and medications may render a person ineligible for treatment, so this is an important part of the process.
A Treatment Unique to You
We know that everyone’s skin and cosmetic goals are different, which is why the team at Tru Male Medical design a one-of-a-kind treatment plan for every patient. This unique treatment plan details things like how many injections will be made, where they’ll be made, and how many units of product will be used. Patients love that every treatment is specific and considered, meaning they’ll be able to enjoy optimal results.
On the Day
A typical appointment will last between 15-30 minutes and will be performed in-house here at our Oak Brook office. During this time, the provider will cleanse your skin and then inject the product into the desired area, following along carefully with your treatment plan. They may also massage the area to help distribute the product evenly. After we’ve finished, you’ll be able to leave immediately, even driving yourself to and from your appointment since we don’t use an anesthetic.
Is There a Long Recovery Period Needed Afterward?
Incredibly, there’s no downtime needed after this treatment. You’ll immediately be able to almost entirely get back to your regular lifestyle, heading back to work, running errands, or whatever else. In the days following your treatment, it will be recommended you stay away from certain things that could slow down the skin’s healing process, such as direct sunlight, high temperatures, and vigorous exercise. After 72 hours or so, however, you’ll be able to resume your normal life.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Typically, results from treatment can be seen within a few days to a week after treatment. It may, however, take up to two weeks for the full effects of the treatment to be visible. So if you’re considering this treatment for wrinkle reduction, keep in mind that you may not see the full results of your treatment right away. To speed up the appearance of results, be sure to eat well, not touch your face too much, get fresh air, and drink plenty of water.
Why Is This Treatment Good for Men?
Gone are the days when cosmetic treatments were only for women – injectables for men are becoming more popular every year. This is because while everyone struggles with wrinkles at some point, harsh lines around the eyes can be particularly harmful to men. A furrowed, deep brow can make men look angrier or more aggressive than they are, which can make people worried to talk to you or leave a bad first impression. This treatment gives men the power to look and emote like themselves again!
What Are Some Other Ways I Can Prevent Wrinkles From Developing?
One of the best ways to prevent wrinkles from forming is to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. This can be done by limiting your exposure to sunlight, wearing sunscreen, and using protective clothing like hats and sunglasses. Avoiding things like excessive drinking and smoking will also help. In your diet, be sure to incorporate plenty of high-fiber, high-antioxidant foods like leafy greens and berries, and be sure to exercise regularly to keep the blood pumping through the skin.
It’s also important to have a good skincare regime, incorporating moisturizers and anti-aging creams into your routine to minimize the effects of aging on your skin. If you don’t do this already, it might involve doing a bit of research online to figure out your skin type, or even consulting with a dermatologist. Our team will be happy to chat with you during your consultation about products that could benefit your skin, including potential ointments and serums that can work in conjunction with your treatment.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for This Treatment?
Good candidates for this treatment are people who have dynamic facial wrinkles between their eyebrows and around their forehead. This is a great treatment for people who want to maintain their natural appearance, but give themselves a refreshed, rejuvenated look. While it is suitable for both men and women, we work with candidates here at Tru Male Medical. In the same way that this treatment isn’t just for women, it’s not for one skin tone or age group either (as long as you’re over 18).
Feel Better and Look Younger With a Few Simple Injections
If you’re done feeling like your skin doesn’t reflect how you’re feeling, or is just leaving you looking older than you are, then it might be time to do something about it. With Dysport, you can enjoy looking younger, more relaxed, and more yourself. And with minimal downtime and quick, easy sessions, it’s never going to feel like it’s pulling you away from life.
