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 Dysport Works
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.
By keeping a variety of dermal fillers, we are able to specifically keep their usage to specific parts of the face. Dysport is most affective for forehead wrinkles and wrinkles that appear between the eyes.
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!
