At Pinnacle Dermatology in Birmingham, MI, we often see clients who are frustrated beyond belief. They feel like they have tried every anti-wrinkle cream on the market. Some creams do nothing; others irritate the skin. But no matter what they try, they can’t rid themselves of deep forehead folds. Today, we reveal when you should consider Dysport.
When You Should Consider Dysport
When Botox Isn’t Working
Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that worsen when the underlying muscle tissue is active. When most people suffer from dynamic wrinkles, they turn to Botox. For some people, this neuromodulator treatment does nothing. For other people, the treatment works for a while, but then it stops working because their body develops an immunity to the neurotoxin.
If Botox has worked for you in the past but isn’t as effective now, it’s time to consider Dysport. Even if Botox is still working for you now, do you now need a larger dose than you used to? If so, our statement stands. Besides, who wants to wait for treatment to fail before pursuing a more effective avenue to get the same or better results?
When You Have Deep Forehead Folds
The most obvious sign that now is the best time to consider Dysport is when you have deep “worry” or “frown” lines above and between your eyebrows. These deep texture imperfections never quite go away. but they definitely worsen when you frown. They are the perfect example of dynamic wrinkles.
When you frown, the muscles in your forehead contract. When the muscles in your forehead contract, the ever-present wrinkles in your forehead deepen. Now is the right time to consider this treatment if you have a moderate-to-severe texture issue. It is not designed for mild cases.
You Are Neither Pregnant nor Nursing
Now is the best time to consider this treatment if you have moderate-to-severe texture issues and you are currently neither pregnant nor nursing. Your health and safety are two of our top priorities. Unfortunately, the FDA has not yet tested this treatment for safety or efficacy in women who are pregnant or nursing.
Please let us know during your initial consultation if you are trying to get pregnant or think you may be pregnant currently. We may recommend that you take a pregnancy test before treatment to ensure it is safe for you at this time.
You Have Deep Marionette Lines
Dysport is one of the most powerful neuromodulators currently on the market. Therefore, you may be wasting your time and money if you only have mild marionette lines. You may be better offer waiting three to five years for treatment or choosing a more mild solution.
Contrastingly, if you have moderate-to-severe marionette lines, now is the perfect time for you to consider this treatment. During your initial consultation, we will advise you on whether your texture issues are significant enough for this to be the ideal treatment method for you.
You Have Deep Nasolabial Folds
Most people are familiar with marionette lines being synonymous with the lines that form around the corners of your mouth when you smile. But what is a nasolabial fold? A nasolabial fold is a line that runs from your mouth to your nose.
This is another great example of a dynamic wrinkle because it deepens when you laugh. If you have moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds, now is the time to try this treatment.
You Have Severe Cervical Dystonia
When people think of this treatment, they often look in the mirror and count all the deep wrinkles on their face, chest, or hands that worsen when their muscles move. But this treatment isn’t necessarily all about your looks. In fact, it is FDA-approved for the treatment of several medical conditions.
For instance, you know it works by relaxing hyperactive muscles. Excruciating chronic pain due to cervical dystonia is caused by muscle hyperactivity. When injected into the shoulders, neck, and upper back, this treatment calms hyperactive muscles and keeps your head from twitching into painful positions it shouldn’t be in.
You Have Chronic Migraines
This prescription neurotoxin just about does it all. If you suffer from chronic migraines, this very second is when you should consider this treatment. Injections are primarily administered into the face and head. However, if your chronic migraines are causing you neck and shoulder tension, those muscles can be relaxed with direct injections, too.
It can take between 10 and 14 days to experience relief. However, once your muscles start to relax, you can experience three months of more freedom. In third-party, double-blind clinical trials, researchers found a significant reduction in the frequency and severity of migraine headaches and associated symptoms: especially pain.
