If you’re tired of lines and wrinkles, you don’t have to let them hang around any longer. Dr. James Ralston – your dermatologist in McKinney, TX – and the team at the Dermatology Center of McKinney offer several treatment options that can help.

Why Should I Consider Dysport Treatments?

Whether it’s due to frowning or deep concentration, everyone furrows their eyebrows – usually more often than they should. Over time, these furrows can lead to permanent lines between the eyebrows called glabellar lines. Sometimes, they are referred to as “11 lines,” as that’s what they look like.

Though there are many over-the-counter products that can help fight lines like these, they are not always as effective as you’d like them to be. Additionally, the more severe the glabellar lines, the less OTC products can help.

Fortunately, you have other options – one of which is a Dysport injection. Dysport injections are similar to Botox, but the two have different amounts of volume-boosting protein in them. Dysport is specifically helpful with glabellar lines, but the benefits go far beyond that.

What All Can Dysport Treatments With My McKinney, TX Dermatologist Do For Me?

Again, Dysport is typically used to smooth glabellar lines. It should be noted, though, that it is designed to treat moderate to severe lines. Mild lines can often be treated through other methods. When you visit the Dermatology Center of McKinney, Dr. Ralston can let you know which type of treatment is best for your glabellar lines.

Dysport is also used to address lines and wrinkles on the forehead as well as crow’s feet and lip wrinkles. The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on the treatment area and the severity of your lines.

Some benefits of choosing Dysport over other injections include the following:

  • It usually requires fewer injections.
  • It works quickly, often providing results after the first treatment.
  • It can be used for other conditions, such as muscle spasms and headaches.
  • There’s no downtime required.
