What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.
This FDA-approved neuromodulator is very similar to Botox. Dysport works beneath the skin to disrupt the connection between the nerve and the muscle, and dramatically improve moderate to severe frown lines. When injected in a meticulous and customized fashion it can minimize the lines without making you look strange or “frozen”.
How do Botox and Dysport work?
Over time, repeated muscle contraction above and between the eyebrows causes wrinkles. It happens every day and you don’t even realize it. You may do it when you concentrate on something or look across the room to focus on something or even when listening attentively. But the end result is a furrowed brow causing lines that leave you looking angry or stressed when you may not be either of those things. Do you look at your spouse or kids and they think you are angry? Then you know what I mean.These lines that make you look stressed also make you look, let's face it, older.
Neuromodulators like Botox and DYSPORT® target the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet and work to relax wrinkles by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles. The muscles begin to weaken within about 48 hours from the time it is injected into the muscle. You will begin to notice weaker movement in 3-5 days with most people achieving complete results in 7-10 days. While results are often most noticeable in dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that appear when a muscle contracts), these well placed injections can also help soften wrinkles that are present even without muscle contraction. If you are looking for the most frequently used cosmetic injection for improving the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, one of these may be the right treatment option for you.
