Over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. Dysport reduces moderate to severe frown lines and facial wrinkles in forehead and between the eyes in both men and women of all skin tones.
Dysport is very effective in treating dynamic facial wrinkles. The areas most commonly treated by Dysport include the crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), worry lines between the eyebrows (vertical glabellar rhytids), and the lines across the forehead (horizontal rhytids). Dr. Boyd also uses Dysport to create a brow lift or mouth lift (which is the lifting of the sides of the mouth).
For up to four entire months, 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.
One advantage of Dysport over Botox®, is Dysport spreads a bit farther from the injection point than Botox: one to three centimeters compared to Botox’s one centimeter. This means that fewer injections are needed.
