What is Dysport®?

Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the muscles forms frown lines between the eyebrows. Wrinkles are not only age related. Frown lines are “dynamic”—they happen because of the way a person’s face moves. Because frown lines are created by facial movements such as frowning or squinting, they may develop even in younger adults. Prescription Dysport®is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age. The muscles above and between the eyebrows contract and tighten, and can cause wrinkles. Dysport® blocks the nerve signal that causes these facial muscles to contract. This ultimately results in a localized reduction of muscle activity in the treated area and temporarily stops the contraction of these muscles.

How does Dysport® work?

With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and above 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. Although office visit times may vary, the procedure generally takes about 10 to 20 minutes.

The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
