If only life didn’t have such a negative impact on your skin! You probably know first-hand the toll that stress takes on you physically and emotionally, but do you know that stress can also affect your skin? Those constant facial expressions that come from hours of concentrating, working on the computer, and expressing your dissatisfaction actually create fine lines and wrinkles.
What Is Dysport®?
Certain lines and wrinkles on your face are caused by muscle contractions, and over time, “muscle memory” makes those lines and wrinkles permanent. Dysport® works much like Botox®. Both treatments contain botulinum toxin that safely and temporarily paralyzes certain muscles in your face. Once the muscles no longer move, the lines and wrinkles disappear.
Is Dysport® a Good Choice for Me?
Dysport® is an FDA-approved treatment for frown lines, laugh lines, and facial folds. Dr. Shumway understands the cause of your lines and wrinkles, so the best way to find out if Dysport® is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Shumway at our La Jolla office. If your lines and wrinkles are caused by sagging skin, Dr. Shumway may recommend a dermal filler or other skin rejuvenation treatment.
