What is Dysport?

dysportDysport ® Wrinkle Treatment is an FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer, offering a non-surgical option for the correction of expression-related wrinkles, or dynamic wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.

With every laugh, squint or frown, the muscles of the face contract causing the overlying skin to crease.

Over time and as the elasticity in skin gradually diminishes with age, these expression creases deepen and become permanent facial lines and wrinkles.

A Dysport injection involves temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract, and effectively smooth the appearance of:

– Frown lines
– Forehead lines
– Crow’s feet

Dysport involves the injection of a minuscule amount of clostridium botulinum toxin A and works by temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract. After Dysport injections, all untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to remain unaffected.

Following a Dysport treatment, normal activities can resume immediately as long as you remain in an upright position and avoid any pressure on the area or exercise for at least 4 or 5 hours.

The results of the Dysport injections are not instant.  Improvement is gradual and usually begins within 2 to 3 days with the final result being achieved in about a week or so. In most cases, the treated wrinkles will relax and soften, producing a younger, well-rested appearance.

Although the improvement varies with each person, the result may last 4 to 5 months or longer.
