Injectable treatment has been popular for decades, particularly due to brand names like Botox and Juvederm. While all injectables have their benefits, depending on your cosmetic goals, there are some that are not as well known as others. Sometimes, to achieve an optimal result, it’s vital to think beyond more popular injectables and consider the treatments that will serve your unique goals.
Have You Thought About Dysport?
It’s difficult to find someone who is unfamiliar with Botox, but the same cannot be said for Dysport. Although very similar, the neurotoxins produce different results that may be beneficial for your specific treatment needs.
Like Botox, Dysport prevents muscle contraction that causes deep-set wrinkles in the skin. By blocking the signal that prompts your muscles to move, lines are unable to form, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.
The primary difference between Botox and Dysport is their particle size, with Dysport containing smaller molecules that allow it to distribute throughout the skin in a greater capacity. Smaller particles mean that the unit measurements differ between each product, although they are equally effective in suppressing wrinkles.
Dysport is effective when treating signs of aging that results from muscle contraction around the forehead and eyes. Glabellar lines and crow’s feet are just two examples of treatment areas that Dysport can correct. In some cases, you may find that Dysport produces results faster than Botox, in one to two weeks as opposed to two to three, but it often depends on the unit amount and the area being treated. Both injectables carry high safety ratings and should be re-treated every three to six months for optimal results.
Should You Consider Treatment With Restylane?
Not all wrinkles are the spawn of overexerted muscles. Some occur due to volume loss that stems from depleting collagen and subcutaneous fat that once kept your skin looking young. Dermal fillers are highly efficient in treating facial wrinkles by replicating natural moisture-binding ingredients within the body and restoring fullness to the skin. Restylane is just one line of injectable fillers that smooth away imperfections and add a natural lift to your facial contours.
Depending on the severity of your wrinkles as well as their location, you may receive one or more Restylane products. Restylane Lyft adds volume to the cheeks when they have begun to look hollow or sunken while the latest additions, Restylane Refyne and Defyne, help smooth mild to deep laugh laughs without compromising your ability to make facial expressions.
Restylane is designed to mimic the naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid in your body and add to it, building volume and softening wrinkles in your skin. The unique particle size of Restylane Silk, Restylane and Restylane Lyft allow it to mold to the treatment area, whether it is larger or smaller.
One of the most significant benefits of Restylane is its ability to maintain the features on your face without making you look overworked. You’re able to make facial expressions as you normally would, the only difference is that you can enjoy a more youthful version of you.
