Dysport® is a prescription injectable neuromodulator, very similar to Botox. It is 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. The toxin causes temporary muscle paralysis, similar to the symptoms of botulism.
While this might sound worrisome to most, neuromodulator treatments have been used for decades. And with proper use, by an accredited medical professional, Dysport® is highly effective in the treatment of wrinkles & fine lines.
How Does Dysport® Work?
Over time, the muscles along the face will constantly contract and tighten due to our normal facial movements – this will cause wrinkles and facial lines to develop. When Dysport® is injected into these muscles, it will paralyze them temporarily preventing any further contractions. Over time, as the muscles are no longer contracting, the skin will smoothen, and any expression lines will disappear.
Dysport® is most effective for wrinkles along the forehead and between the eyes.
