If you want to banish your wrinkles without going under the knife, ask your doctor about Dysport. Dysport is the ideal solution for men and women who want to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles, but don’t want to look unnatural, or change the look of their entire face. But how does Dysport work, and how is it administered?
What is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable filler that has a similar effect on the muscles that botox has, and is also derived from the same active ingredient, abobotulinum toxin A. Dysport is approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles between the eyebrows, and frown lines across the forehead. Prior to being approved by the FDA in 2009, Dysport was in use outside of the US for several years.
How Dysport works
Dysport works by temporarily immobilizing the muscles. It achieves this, by blocking the communication that usually takes place between the nerves and the facial muscles. The contraction of these muscles leads to the formation of dynamic wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles are frown lines that form because of facial movements such as smiling, squinting, and frowning, and become more apparent as you age. Since Dysport reduces muscle activity, existing frown lines soften. However, the muscles that are not injected will continue to work as usual.
How is Dysport Administered?
Tiny needles are used to inject Dysport into the muscles beneath the frown lines. This process typically takes 10 to 15 minutes. As Dysport takes effect, and the muscles being to relax over the following days, your face will appear smoother and more youthful.
