If you have wrinkles that are keeping you from feeling good about your appearance, don’t worry. You don’t have to endure a complex procedure or visit the hospital to minimize your wrinkles and frown lines. At Peachtree Dermatology in Atlanta, Georgia, we offer Dysport treatments that can return your skin to the smooth, vibrant look of youth. Read on to learn more about how this effective, straightforward treatment can help you reduce the negative signs of aging and get a younger, fresher look.
How Often Should You Get Dysport Treatments?
People love Dysport because this injectable treatment is so efficient and easy. You don’t have to take too much time out of your busy schedule to attend repeated treatment sessions. Instead, this wonderful injectable can achieve last-longing, noticeable results in a few sessions. Most people get their treatments every three to six months, depending on the person and their individual response.
People will experience varying results after their treatment sessions. That said, most people see positive changes shortly after they receive the injections. In fact, in a clinical study, most patients saw improvements in two to three days after receiving their treatments.
These positive changes can continue for up to four months. As the effects wear off, your face will slowly return to its previous appearance. Your medical provider will determine a treatment schedule that can help you maintain the positive effects of your treatment.
Many people achieve the best results when they receive multiple treatments. Because you must wait at least ninety days between your treatments, we will space out these sessions to give your skin time to renew and refresh. Since everyone’s skin is unique, a treatment plan that works for one patient may not be right for another.
During your initial consultation, we will examine your skin and talk about your goals and desires. Based on this information, we will develop a customized treatment plan that will help you achieve your desired look.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable treatment that can smooth and minimize wrinkles. Although this treatment is not as well known as Botox, it’s been around for a very long time. In fact, medical professionals have over twenty-five years of clinical experience using this product for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes. Today, this injectable is approved in sixty-nine countries around the world.
Why Am I Experiencing Frown Lines and Other Wrinkles?
Wrinkles are one of the most common skin issues. These imperfections may keep people from feeling attractive and confident, especially when the lines are prominent or deep. For instance, many people have frown lines between their brows that make them look less vibrant and youthful than they really are. These wrinkles may give people an angry, tired expression.
The Aging Process
Frown lines and other wrinkles often become more noticeable as we age. This is because the aging process negatively affects the strength and elasticity of our skin.
Age-related changes in hyaluronic acid can negatively affect people’s looks. When people are young, they have an abundance of this natural acid. However, as they age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in their bodies decreases. This change can cause the skin to become drier, coarser, and more wrinkled.
Other Effects of Age
People go through other age-related changes that negatively affect their skin. For instance, people lose fat in their foreheads and cheeks and gain fat in their mouths and jaws. These facial changes may cause sagging skin. Muscle laxity and bone loss can also make people look older.
Exposure to damaging environmental elements and lifestyle choices can also harm the skin. For instance, spending too much time in the sun isn’t good for the skin. This is because the ultraviolet rays in sunlight can cause you to lose collagen. This loss may cause your skin to droop and wrinkle.
Lifestyle choices, such as smoking or eating an unbalanced diet, can also be harmful to the skin. Over time, the cumulative damage caused by the sun and other factors can cause people to develop coarse, wrinkled skin.
Can Younger People Suffer From Wrinkles?
Don’t worry if you’re experiencing wrinkles at an early age. Although wrinkles are more of an issue for older people, younger people also struggle with fine lines and other skin imperfections. Many people in their twenties and thirties use injectables to address these issues.
It’s normal for people to experience frown lines in their twenties and thirties. Over time, contracting your muscles and making repeated facial movements can cause you to develop wrinkles on your face. This means that you may suffer from frown lines and wrinkles even if you eat well, exercise, and take excellent care of your skin. Fortunately, injectables can reduce your frown lines and give you youthful-looking, smoother skin.
Will This Injectable Treatment Really Improve My Appearance?
It’s common to have doubts when you’re considering a new skincare treatment. Many people worry that an injectable treatment won’t improve the appearance of their wrinkles. Other people have concerns about looking unnatural or unlike their usual selves. Fortunately, you don’t have to feel nervous when you use this injectable treatment.
Scientific studies have shown that this injectable product is a wonderful way to smooth wrinkles and refresh your skin. In fact, 97% of people in a scientific study said that they would get this treatment again. It’s easy to understand why these people were so happy with their treatments.
Science has shown that this treatment can significantly improve the appearance of moderate and severe frown lines. In three clinical studies, a majority of the patients or their specialists said that their treatments reduced the prominence of their frown lines.
A Natural Look
You don’t have to worry about looking frozen or unnatural after your treatment. People still feel like themselves after they receive this injectable. Ninety-eight percent of people in a clinical study said that their results looked natural.
A Refined Approach
We have extensive experience using this injectable to achieve natural-looking, attractive results. Further, we use a restrained, sophisticated method to renew and refresh your skin. We will administer your treatment precisely. This process will smooth and soften your wrinkles without making you look overworked.
How Does This Injectable Treatment Work?
This FDA-approved injectable product is a neuromodulator agent. It minimizes the frown lines between your eyebrows by blocking the communication between your nerve signals and muscles.
Disrupting the Communication
This product is a very purified form of botulinum protein A. During your treatment, we will administer an injection into several points around the targeted area. These injections will prevent your nerve signals from communicating with your muscles. This process stops your muscles from contracting. Stopping these contractions will prevent new wrinkles from forming. It will also prevent muscle movements from deepening your existing lines.
Dysport vs Botox
These two injectable products are very similar. Both treatments are effective at smoothing dynamic wrinkles that form through movement and expressions. These treatments achieve results by disrupting the nerve signals that communicate with facial muscles.
Each product has a unique formula. These products also have different dosing requirements. This means that each of these injectables is good at treating certain types of skin issues. For instance, Botox is wonderful at treating crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and other skin issues, while Dysport is great at addressing frown lines between people’s eyebrows. Further, some patients may respond better to various types of injectables.
Making a Choice
If you don’t know which injectable to choose, don’t worry. We have extensive experience in administering these rejuvenating treatments. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your skincare goals and medical history. We will use this information to determine which injectable is right for you.
How Is This Injectable Treatment Different From Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers work differently than injectable treatments. As you might guess from their name, fillers like Juvederm smooth skin by filling and elevating your wrinkles. These fillers use ingredients like hyaluronic acid to add volume and fill out your wrinkles. In contrast, injectables use purified formulas of botulinum toxin to relax your muscle movements.
Making a Choice
Fillers and injectables are both excellent ways to enhance your look. In fact, some people combine both treatments to achieve more optimal results. During your consultation, we will discuss whether injectables, fillers, or a combination of both treatments is the best way to renew and refresh your skin.
What Will My Treatment Be Like?
Getting an injectable treatment is a comfortable, effortless way to improve your appearance. There’s no need for you to feel nervous or worried about this treatment.
The First Step
We will meet with you for a consultation before you receive your injectable treatment. During this consultation, we’ll tell you what to expect during your session. We will also talk about the effects that you can realistically achieve by using this product. You can ask us questions and address any concerns that you might have about this process.

Receiving Your Treatment
You don’t have to go to the hospital for a complex procedure to refresh your look. We will provide this treatment in our comfortable office in Atlanta, Georgia. During your session, we will administer the injection into the area where you wish to reduce wrinkles.
Although everyone’s treatment is unique, this process is usually quick and easy. You may feel a slight pinching as we administer the injectable product. After the treatment is complete, the injectable will start altering the communication between your muscles and nerve signals. This process will rejuvenate your appearance and minimize your wrinkles.
This treatment requires minimal recovery time, making it ideal for people who don’t want to take lengthy breaks from their busy lives. Although you should not engage in strenuous exercise immediately after receiving your treatment, many patients return to their work and other activities with limited downtime. We will advise you about any rules or steps you should take in the days and weeks following your session.
Who Can Use This Rejuvenating Treatment?
This injectable is a wonderful option for people who are looking for an effortless way to look younger and fresher. The treatment process is straightforward and comfortable with minimal downtime.

This injectable is a great option for people with normal skin who wish to minimize wrinkles and frown lines. This product can help people with a wide variety of skin types minimize the dynamic frown lines that result from facial expressions.
Addressing Other Skin Issues
Although this product is an excellent way to minimize frown lines, it cannot address every type of skin issue. This treatment may not be suitable for people who have deep facial scars, thick oily skin, or droopy eyelids. You also may not be a suitable candidate for this skincare treatment if you can’t improve your wrinkles by spreading them apart.
Certain allergies may prevent you from receiving this treatment. In particular, this treatment is not designed for people who have allergies to any of the ingredients in the injectable formula or to cow’s milk protein. You should also not receive this treatment if you have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin treatment, like Botox.
You should not receive this injectable if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you plan to become pregnant. Your doctor can give you advice about when you can resume receiving injectables after a pregnancy.
Women aren’t the only ones who experience frown lines and wrinkles. Smiling, frowning, and making other facial expressions may also cause men to experience frown lines and wrinkles. In fact, men often have deeper frown lines than women do. This injectable product is suitable for men and women, making it a wonderful solution for anyone who wants to soften and smooth their wrinkles.
If you’re not sure whether this product will work for you, don’t worry. You don’t have to make this decision by yourself. During your initial consultation, we will examine your skin. We will talk about your medical history, including any health conditions that you have.
We will also discuss whether you have used fillers or injectables before. We will talk about how your skin responded to those treatments. We will use this information to determine which injectable, filler, or other skincare treatment is right for you.
