The board-certified dermatologists at San Diego’s Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are known for their expertise in injectable treatments. Among those is an injectable treatment called Dysport that is used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet. Our skin specialists are San Diego Dysport experts who can give your face a rejuvenated, youthful appearance in just one treatment.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport uses the same principles as other neuromodulators like Botox. It is referred to as a “wrinkle relaxer” and works by stopping the signals that nerves send out in muscles, effectively relaxing them to stop muscle contractions, which can cause unsightly wrinkles and lines. The best part of this neuromodulator is the natural results that you will see very quickly. By injecting the product into specific areas, the other parts of your face will continue to contract normally, so natural facial expressions are unaffected.
The procedure can be done in just about an hour and your recovery time is virtually nonexistent. Dysport is one the fastest growing treatments for wrinkles and fine lines in plastic surgery today. To find out more, give the offices of Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego a call and schedule a consultation.
This neuromodulator is commonly used to treat the following:
- Crow’s Feet
- 11 Lines
- Neck Bands
- Bunny Lines (Nose)
- Gummy Smile
- Excessive Sweating
- Chin Dimpling
- Droopy Brows
