Dysport® is a more recent product developed to address wrinkles caused by repeated movement of the facial skin by the muscles forming frown lines between the eyebrows.
Wrinkles are not only caused by aging; some facial lines can form because of repeated facial expressions. For example, facial movements like frowning or squinting will cause frown lines, even in younger adults. This happens when the muscles above and between the eyebrows contract and tighten.
How does Dysport work?
Dysport® is a purified formulation that has been shown to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines in adult patients under 65 years of age. Dysport® temporarily blocks the nerve signal that causes these facial muscles to contract and reduces muscle activity in the treated area so that the face appears more relaxed. Like BOTOX®, Dysport® only takes a few minutes to apply and normally lasts about three to four months.
