The visual effects of aging, stress and a busy lifestyle often feel unavoidable, but we at Tulum Wellness believe that there is an attainable balance between embracing each stage of life and treating our bodies well with holistic, natural, and mindful care. Our MedSpa treatments are designed to help you feel and look like yourself with healthy, safe, and medically trusted treatments.
One noticeable feature of our face as we grow older is the increase of vertical lines appearing between our eyebrows, these are called glabellar lines. According to the Oregon Medical Center, “They are caused by small muscles between your eyebrows, and in your forehead, an area called the glabella. Frowning and squinting contract those muscles, and over time this repeated action can cause permanent wrinkles.” So not only can we expect these lines to appear from the aging process but also due to our busy and often stress-filled lives.
Our team of medical professionals offers a solution at Tulum: Dysport treatments.
What is a Dysport treatment?
Dysport is an FDA-approved prescription injectable administered by Tulum’s licensed medical professionals that quickly achieves a natural and youthful look with long-lasting results.
Dysport is abobotulinumtoxinA, an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent that temporarily prevents specific muscle movements that cause frown lines. It is an effective, non-invasive treatment that smooths moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles.
Commonly Asked Questions about Dysport:
- How long does a Dysport injection session last?
A typical session with one of our professionals lasts only 10 - 20 minutes.
- Will it hurt?
No, it is a relatively painless procedure requiring little to no recovery time.
- When will results be seen?
Unlike Botox, which can take up to a month to see visible results, the injection spreads quickly due to Dysport’s more diluted serum. You can expect beautiful, natural-looking, and visible results to be seen within a couple of days.
- How long will the results last?
Distinct reduction in frown lines will remain for up to 5 months with Dysport rather, Botox will typically require another treatment within a month.
- Who are the best candidates for Dysport treatments?
If you are between the ages of 35 - 65 with mild to severe forehead frown lines and wrinkles, then Dysport may be just what you need to feel and look like yourself!
- Who should not receive a Dysport injection?
If you are pregnant, have pre-existing skin conditions, have skin, milk or known Botulinum Type A allergies, or are taking certain medications for muscle spasms, please consult your doctor before seeking a Dysport session.
