Dysport, Botox, Juvederm, Restylane… The demand for these products is constantly growing while allowing the rapid development of the injection cosmetology. And this is totally understandable: who doesn’t want to be young and beautiful? Today, you can easily get rid of wrinkles, and one of the products that helps to tackle this issue is Dysport – a new addition to Anna’s Cosmetics anti-aging range of products.
BRIEF HISTORY OF DYSPORT
Dysport is a cosmetic product created by the French company Beafour-Ipsen-Speywood. It contains a neurotoxin of group A, a toxic substance, a special protein that is extracted from bacteria of a certain type.
From the very beginning, it was used only in a such sphere of medicine as neurology and then, in the 90s it was successfully approved for use in aesthetic cosmetology.
Since then, Dysport injections in aesthetic cosmetology have been used for smoothing and tightening facial skin.
HOW DYSPORT WORKS?
Dysport injections are injections of botulinum toxin which relaxes the muscles, paralyzing them. Mimic wrinkles are often formed due to improper care, sun exposure or active movement of the muscles. Often, we find that it is almost impossible to minimize wrinkles with a help of topical treatments such as creams, serums etc, so this is when we should resort to more radical measures, especially if the creases are deep and old. Dysport is excellent in preventing age-related skin changes, as well as smoothing the existing lines and wrinkles.
On the face, mimic wrinkles are formed mainly in places where muscles constantly move:
- on the forehead
- nose bridge
- near the eyes
- in the corners of the lips.
Constant muscle contraction leads to wrinkling of the skin and over time, it becomes less elastic, less smooth, and folds become deeper and more noticeable.
The rejuvenating effect after the injection of Dysport is achieved because the small muscles, located under the skin, no longer receive nerve impulses forcing them to contract. They become temporarily paralyzed, and the skin has a chance to relax. One of the main benefits of this procedure is that the skin is not injured at all.
The effect of Dysport injection lasts for several months, therefore, only 2-3 injections should be made a year to maintain the effect obtained. The duration of muscle immobility increases each time, which, in its turn leads to a decrease in the number of procedures up to 2 times a year.
DYSPORT’S DOSING AND ADMINISTRATION
For facial wrinkles, Dysport is injected between the eyebrows, forehead, outer corner of the eyes at a dose of 200 IU.
It is administered via intramuscular injection on the affected muscles. It must be performed by an educated health professional who is able to identify the basic characteristics of the muscles.
For the improvement of glabellar lines, Dysport is administered intramuscularly in the affected muscles not exceeding the total dose of 50 units, divided into parts of 10 units or in 5 equal doses.
Intervals or frequency between one treatment and another should not be less than 3 months (12 weeks) from the previous administration.
The technique of treatment in each case is determined individually and is based on the results of the examination, history of the patient, anatomical features of the face. The procedure itself takes no more than 15-20 minutes. The injections are performed under local anesthesia or without an anesthetic. The clinical result is manifested 7-9 days after injection. The duration of the aesthetic effect ranges from 3 to 4 months.
