Dysport® is an injectable treatment used to temporarily eliminate moderate to severe frown lines that are caused by the frequent tightening of facial muscles. When injected, Dysport works to temporarily relax the muscle causing the lines in the skin.

Every time we laugh, frown, concentrate or narrow our eyes in the sun, muscle contraction causes the skin to crease. As skin ages and elasticity decreases, these creases can become deeper, lingering even when the face is more relaxed.

Dysport can help achieve a more youthful, well-rested look without having to undergo surgery. It is a great option for people who want to eliminate facial wrinkles without changing the look of their face. Results are noticeable within a few days and last up to four months.

Treatment

Like BOTOX®, Dysport works by temporarily blocking the signal from nerve to muscle, preventing contraction in the targeted area, and smoothing the skin above it. Regular treatment can have transformative effects as the patient “un-learns” the muscular habit that caused the wrinkles in the first place.

Dysport reduces muscle contraction in the treated area by blocking the signal that is sent by the nerves to the muscle. By temporarily relaxing the contraction of the muscle, Dysport smoothes the frown lines. The treatment takes about 10 to 20 minutes to complete.

Precautions

Some slight bruising at the injection site is possible. Patients cannot workout for 24 hours or lay down for 4 hours after the treatment.
