Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds are unavoidable when it comes to the aging process, though for some patients, skin laxity becomes a concern earlier than for others. Men and women who are worried about their aging appearance are encouraged to work with a professional to learn about non-surgical ways to turn back time. While plastic surgery procedures such as facelifts are still performed today and are the most reliable, permanent option available for patients, there are some less invasive solutions for individuals to consider. This includes cosmetic injectables such as Dysport, available with Dr. Armen Serebrakian of Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is one of many cosmetic injectables used at Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center. Dr. Armen Serebrakian categorizes Dysport as a neuromodulator, similar in function as Botox. Dysport is a cosmetic injectable that is administered into the muscles of the face that result in the formation of dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles and folds are those that occur due to muscle contractions, and often include:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead folds
- Glabellar lines
When Dysport is injected into these muscles, it helps reduce and smooth the wrinkles and folds in these areas. Results often last several months before patients need reinjection to maintain.
Why choose Dysport?
Dysport is similar in nature to Botox and Xeomin, common neuromodulators used in this manner to address the signs of aging. It is different from dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm, which instead add volume directly into the wrinkles of the face for immediate results. These treatments can be combined to provide a “liquid facelift” with more dramatic improvements. Dysport is often chosen because it is:
- Readily available
- Easy to maintain
During a consultation appointment at Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Armen Serebrakian can discuss Dysport and its comparable injectables to determine which is right for each unique patient.
