Move Toward a Natural Look
Board-certified dermatologist Rachel Day, M.D. offers Chambersburg, PA patients Dysport as a nonsurgical procedure for restoring a more youthful appearance to the skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that softens and reduces dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are formed by recurrent facial expressions and movements (like smiling, laughing, and frowning) that over time make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a furrowed line that can be seen even when the face is resting. Dysport is uniquely designed to address the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the frown lines that show up as vertical lines between the eyebrows. It temporarily softens the treated muscle so the dynamic wrinkle is smooth but with natural-looking results that won't give you a "frozen" face.
Is Dysport for ME?
Are you are looking to improve the lines made with facial movements? If the answer is yes, Dysport is right for you!
At OneSkin Dermatology Dr. Day's cosmetic philosophy is founded on what she calls "active maintenance". Active maintenance is the process of evaluating your skin health starting in your late 20's to early 30's to adequately treat signs of accelerated skin aging.
Neurotoxins such as Dyport are perfect for women and men starting in their 3rd decade of life to prevent any deep, etched frown lines that can appear over time on the forehead as well as between and around the eyes. Dysport is a great choice if you want a nonsurgical procedure to address mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines or crow's feet. Dysport is a quick, effective treatment that corrects dynamic wrinkles without leaving a "frozen" appearance.
Injections of Dysport are done in one of our comfortable patient rooms following your consultation with Dr. Day. Your treatment will last around 15-20 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream can be requested but is generally unnecessary. Dysport is injected using a fine needle that causes very little pain. Following your procedure at OneSkin Dermatology, you may perform your regular daily tasks, but you should avoid strenuous activity for the rest of the day.
What to Expect
Following a Dysport session, you may notice some redness and swelling near the injected area, but this typically will resolve within 1 day. You may apply cold compresses if needed. Improvements from the injections are generally noticeable starting in about 3 days with maximal effect in 2 weeks. The appearance of your lines will be decreased, giving you a softer, smoother appearance. Your results should last for around 3 – 4 months. Touch-up injections may be scheduled at OneSkin Dermatology in Chambersburg, PA to extend your results.
