When people talk about other people’s faces, they focus a lot of attention on the person’s eyes. This is because a person’s eyes say a lot about who they are. When a person is young, their eyes are vibrant and look youthful. However, as a person starts to age, one of the first places the signs of aging is apparent is around the eyes.
What Are Crow’s Feet?
Sadly, when most people hear the term crow’s feet, they don’t think about the actual feet of the bird. They think about those lines that appear on the side of your eyes when you smile, squint, or make other facial expressions. Crow’s feet are dynamic wrinkles. We call them dynamic wrinkles because at first they only appear when a person is making facial expressions. Unfortunately, crow’s feet can become etched in your face to the point where they are seen on your face whether you are making a facial expression or not.
When a person first notices that their crow’s feet are not disappearing after they smile, it can be unnerving. It is unnerving because crow’s feet make a person look older. Thankfully, there is hope for minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes. That hope lies in the strategic use of Dysport®. The question is, is Dysport® the right treatment for you?
How Does Dysport® Work?
If you are looking to say goodbye to crow’s feet and frown lines in Toronto, one of the first things you need to understand is how Dysport® works. Dysport® is a neuromodulator and temporarily relaxes muscles that it comes into contact with.
When a person is dealing with crow’s feet, Dysport® is injected into the orbital muscles. The result is that the wrinkles that have developed in your skin are given a chance to fall out because when you smile or make other facial expressions, your muscles are not squeezing the skin together.
How Quickly Does Dysport® Work?
It’s understandable that an individual who is upset by the appearance of crow’s feet and frown lines wants to know how quickly Dysport® will begin to work. The truth is that it starts working as soon as it is injected into the treated area. However, it may take up to three days for the results to become visible. During your initial consultation, our cosmetic professional is going to look at your face and determine the amount of Dysport® needed to address your specific issue.
Depending on how you look at it, a positive or a downside of Dysport® is that the results are only temporary. For most people, Dysport® will produce results that last for around six months. When the results wear off, your muscles will go back to their pre-treated function. This means that if you do not have follow-up Dysport® treatments, your crow’s feet will return.
