Did you know the delicate skin near your eyes is often one of the first places to show the signs of aging? One of the most common of these includes crow’s feet, the lines and creases that spread from the outer corners of your eyes.
You can try to fight crow’s feet with topical creams and silicone primers, but at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, we have a better solution: Dysport® cosmetic injectables.
Led by Angie Bjorgaard, RN, BSN, our aesthetic team uses safe and effective Dysport to make your crow’s feet disappear. Keep reading to learn more about how this amazing treatment works!
What causes crow’s feet?
Your skin is designed to move with your face when you laugh, chew, smile, frown, or make other expressions. When the muscles in your face move, so does the skin, creating lines and wrinkles near your eyes, forehead, lips, and nose. When you’re young, these lines disappear when you stop making the expression.
But as you get older, your body makes less collagen and elastin, the proteins that help create firm, toned skin. The result? Your crow’s feet become etched into the skin near your eyes, appearing on the surface even after you’ve stopped making facial expressions.
How can Dysport minimize crow’s feet?
Our team at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals loves to use fast, safe, and effective Dysport to smooth away crow’s feet and restore your appearance.
Like Botox, FDA-approved Dysport is a neuromodulator, which means it relaxes the muscles that contract when you make facial expressions. Both Botox and Dysport use botulinum toxin type A, and both are safe when administered by trained aesthetic professionals.
The difference lies in the formula. Dysport and Botox use different amounts of the botulinum toxin and trace proteins. This affects the way the products diffuse under your skin. More highly concentrated Botox spreads slowly while Dysport diffuses more quickly.
Studies show that Dysport excels at minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet and glabella wrinkles, or the vertical lines between your eyebrows. However, both injectables are effective, and your provider helps determine which injectable is right for you.
What can I expect with Dysport?
Before making any treatment recommendation, your Sublime Aesthetic Professionals provider evaluates your skin and discusses your goals. Armed with this information, your provider determines which treatment to use, the number of injections, and where they should be placed to give you the best results possible.
Dysport injections only take minutes, making it the perfect treatment to fit into your lunch hour. Though results from Botox can take up to a month to fully appear, you can expect to see results more quickly with Dysport.
You’ll enjoy crow’s feet-free skin for up to four months, and scheduling a quick touch-up appointment can give you seamless results that last even longer.
