What is Dysport?
Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. It is similar to Botox and Xeomin. Dysport is dosed differently than Botox or Xeomin, so it is not as easy to compare. In general, for each unit of Botox, the Dysport equivalent is about 3 units. In general, most say Dysport “kicks in” sooner and lasts a little longer than Botox, but this opinion is widely varied.
This FDA-approved injectable helps diminish the appearance of unsightly lines by reducing muscle contraction in the brow and forehead area. It works beneath the skin to block the signal from the nerve to the muscle, and in turn improve moderate to severe frown lines.
How does Dysport work?
When your facial muscles such as those above and between the eyebrows contract, your skin moves along with them, forming creases until the muscles return to the resting position. These are called “dynamic” wrinkles or lines because they happen as a result of the way a person’s face moves. Over time, and after many repeated movements, those creases can deepen significantly. Combine that with the natural decrease of collagen as you age, and you have the perfect recipe for severe lines and wrinkles.
Dysport works by blocking 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 and other wrinkles.
Injections into each of 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport can help smooth wrinkles and help you feel your best.
How long does Dysport last?
For up to four entire months, you could have the look that you love. Dysport works to block the signal from the nerve to the muscles, resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
