Frequently Asked Questions
What Exactly Is Dysport?
Dysport is a type of botulinum toxin, called abobotulinumtoxinA (ABO) that is FDA approved to treat moderate to severe wrinkles between the eyebrows known as Glabellar lines.
What Can Dysport Do For You?
Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions. Whenever you laugh, frown, squint, the muscles of the face will contract, causing the skin to crease. As skin ages, it naturally loses its elasticity. This combined with continuous muscle contractions and skin creasing will cause the lines and wrinkles to deepen. Because frown lines between your eyes can become particularly prominent at a relatively young age, it is important to treat this area before it worsens over time. By temporarily freezing the facial muscles that cause you to frown, Dysport can prevent the lines from worsening, and lighten the appearance of these already existent wrinkles to create a more youthful, and smooth complexion.
How Is Dysport Used?
Dysport temporarily treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions.7 One injection into each of the 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines.
No local anesthetic is usually necessary but can be to numb the skin before injecting if you are concerned. The treatment can be completed in 10-20 minutes. Over the next few days you will begin to notice that you are unable to contract your frown muscles as they gradually begin to relax.
