Frustrated with Wrinkles? Dysport® Can Help

Remember the day you looked in the mirror and saw a much older version of yourself staring back? It’s pretty humbling to realize that a life well lived and wrinkles seem to go hand in hand. But what’s even more frustrating is when your deep wrinkles give you a permanent “grouchy” face.

Natural aging has a way of creating a mismatch between how you feel and how you look. Wrinkles and frown lines can take a toll on your self-confidence and can be very frustrating to try to eliminate. The good news is, you don’t have to live with your frustration or your wrinkles.

Karol Gutowski, MD, FACS and the highly trained team at Lincoln Park Aesthetics in Chicago, Illinois, offer Dysport®, an injectable prescription medication that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines without altering the natural movement of the rest of your face. Think of it as a way to get the real “you” back, but perhaps a little better.

Dysport is an increasingly popular brand of prescription injection made from Botulinum Toxin Type A. It’s an important tool that doctors can use to help their patients regain a more youthful appearance. In fact, according to a report from American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were 15.7 million cosmetic minimally invasive procedures performed in the United States in 2017. Of those, Botulinum Toxin Type A injections ranked #1, with 7.23 million procedures in the US alone.

Erasing those elevens

Seeing 11s on a spreadsheet is one thing — but seeing them on your face is quite another! “Elevens,” as they’re commonly called, are those annoying two vertical lines that some people get between their eyebrows. They aren’t necessarily an age thing, though: They happen over time due to repetitive muscle movements, like squinting or frowning. 

Dysport is a go-to solution for these pesky wrinkles, and it only takes about 20 minutes to administer. Our experienced and trained providers typically do five injections per Dysport treatment. Although the procedure isn’t painful, you may notice a slight pinching sensation in the beginning. Most patients notice an improvement within two to three days, and the effect can last for about four months.*

A soft, smooth natural look

One of the best things about Dysport is that it minimizes and smooths out moderate to deep wrinkles without giving you that fake, frozen look. Instead, you’ll enjoy a more youthful, natural appearance. The untreated areas of your face will also continue to move normally, so you can go ahead and be expressive. You’ll just look even better while doing it!

Safe, minimally invasive, and effective

Dysport is an FDA-approved treatment. Since it’s also minimally invasive, we can do it right here in our office at Lincoln Park Aesthetics. You can go back to your normal activities right after the treatment, but you should avoid vigorous activity or exercise. Some patients experience minor side effects near the injection sites — such as swelling, bruising or redness — but these usually go away in a few days. And what’s even better is, the results can last up to four months.

So if wrinkles and deep frown lines are cramping your style, give Karol Gutowski, MD, FACS, and our highly trained team a call. With Dysport, the next look in the mirror could reveal the best “you” yet. Call today to schedule your consultation.
