How does Dysport® work?
Whenever your face makes a movement, you smile, squint or frown for instance, your facial muscles contract and the skin over those muscles creases. These are called dynamic wrinkles because they disappear when the facial movements stop. As you age and your skin loses its elasticity, those creases deepen into static, or permanent, lines and wrinkles. Dysport® is injected directly into the muscles that cause facial wrinkles, temporarily immobilizing them. It specifically targets the glabellar muscles, the ones that form creases on your forehead when you frown. Dysport® diffuses a bit farther from the injection point than Botox®: one to three centimeters compared to Botox® one centimeter. This means that fewer injections are needed, but it also means that the health professional doing the injections must be very skilled to ensure that the drug does not spread to nearby muscles and cause eyelid and or eyebrow drooping or other unwanted side effects.
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. 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.
What are Dysport® treatments like?
Like Botox®, Dysport® is injected directly into the facial muscles beneath the lines of the face. Usually, only 3 to 5 injections are needed to treat glabellar lines. Most people find the injections almost painless, so a local anesthetic is not usually needed. If you’re concerned, however, you can request an anesthetic (numbing) cream prior to treatment. The treatment session typically lasts less than 15 minutes. The full effect of the treatment will take several days as the muscles gradually relax.
