What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a prescription injectable used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of the face. Dysport®, like Botox is made from the Botulinum toxin. This toxin causes botulism, a condition of temporary muscle paralysis. However scary this may sound, when injected into the facial muscles, it causes 0 harm whatsoever, and actually alleviates patients of wrinkles & fine lines. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, or frowning.
How Does Dysport® Work?
Over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. But, with just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport® blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
Dysport® is most affective for forehead wrinkles and wrinkles that appear between the eyes.
What Does Dysport® improve?
- Frown Lines, and other expression lines.
- Forehead Wrinkles.
- Crow’s feet and under-eye depressions.
- “Lipstick” lines or smile marks around the mouth.
- Lines along the neck.
How long does Dysport® last?
Dysport® can typically last from 6-12 months, depending on severity of wrinkles and skin care habits. Dysport® works to block the signal from the nerve to the muscles, resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. It’s important to note that you should not be treated with Dysport® more frequently than every 90 days. However, in order to keep your youthful contours and wrinkle-free look the treatment must be repeated, every 6-12 months, as needed!
