Prescription Dysport® is an injection used to temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines. A comparable treatment to Dysport® is Botox® Cosmetic.
Dysport® works by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles. Ultimately, this results in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily prevents the treated muscles from contracting, causing frown lines. It is recommended to have a Dysport® treatment every 3-4 months.
Frown lines (wrinkles) occur when the muscles that control facial expression contract, tightening over and over. Dysport® is injected to tighten these muscles for up to 4 months.
