Newport Beach CA offers many products within each category of wrinkle treatment for your unique needs

You may have heard of Botox and its wrinkle-smoothing effects, but Dr. Farshidi and her team at Arta Dermatology offer another option to improve the look of lines caused by aging and repeated facial expressions: Dysport.

Like Botox and Xeomin, Dysport is a neuromodulator. All of these products contain the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A. However, since each product is manufactured differently there are nuances. It is important for those considering these types of treatments to partner with a licensed professional, knowledgeable in facial anatomy and with experience administering the specific type of product you need.

By partnering with skilled and experienced professionals at Arta Dermatology, patients can rest assured they are receiving the best solution for their specific concerns and needs. You can also get desirable, natural results with minimal side effects.

How neuromodulators work

Your nerves send a message to the muscles responsible for facial expression by way of chemical reactions. When injected into the treatment area, Botox, Dysport and other like treatments block the release of acetylcholine (ACh). An abundant neurotransmitter, ACh when inhibited prevents the muscles from getting the message telling them to contract. A muscle that doesn’t contract can’t make a line. The result is you get a smooth, aesthetic effect.

Both Botox and Dysport affect only the treated muscles. By limiting the effects of this solution to a few treated areas, you can still express yourself naturally. Remember there are many muscles in your face. Several muscles are required to make facial expressions. By treating a few muscles, your face will not look frozen, as the treatment is so limited.

This is an important consideration to keep in mind, as side effects are typically limited to the treatment area. They are usually minor and subside within a few days. Slight stinging may be experienced during treatment. Temporary redness, bruising, and tenderness will sometimes follow each treatment session.

A cold pack or numbing cream may be all you need during and after the procedure to stay comfortable. Unlike surgical procedures, no anesthesia is necessary.

Get ready to discover your skin, a new you

As with other neuromodulators, the procedure can be completed in less than 20 minutes. With Dysport alone, more than half of treated patients saw improvement in the look of their lines within two to three days. Results last for at least three to four months; at which time you can schedule another wrinkle treatment in Newport Beach CA.

Call (949) 531-7111 to schedule an appointment and discover why Botox and Dysport are among the most widely-used types of treatments for moderate to severe wrinkling. Neuromodulators may be used in conjunction with or as an alternative to other popular and minimally invasive procedures, such as dermal fillers, laser and light based therapies, and chemical peels. When combined with dermal fillers, neuromodulators are also known as “liquid facelifts,” a natural looking alternative to conventional plastic surgeries.
