Frown lines. Crow’s feet. Thinking lines. We all get them. And they are nothing to be ashamed of. But sometimes we just want a change or a little lift. But you’ve seen the horror stories about surgical facelifts.
The pictures the frozen face looks that are absolutely not how you want to look. Well, those days are behind us. Luckily, there are now non-surgical options for adults who want a natural look. And one of those options is Dysport.
Dysport is a variation of the botulinum toxin called abobotuliunum toxin. It’s an agent that weakens the muscles into which it is placed. This means that adequately placed into specific areas of the face, Dysport may improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Repeated movements and muscle contractions may cause wrinkles. This basically means that your facial expressions cause wrinkles.
Facial expressions are controlled by muscles that insert onto the surface of the skin. Dysport weakens these muscles, which then decreases the tension that they place on the skin.
The decrease in muscle tension flattens out wrinkles. Cumulative benefits occur as skin is allowed to remodel without harming the wrinkle-creating facial muscles.
The most obvious and effective use of Dysport is in treating dynamic facial wrinkles. The most commonly treated areas include the lines:
Strategically placed, Dysport can even elevate the brow and give the appearance of a Brow Lift. Other uses of Dysport include:
No one wants that! Dysport treatments, performed by experienced practitioners, are simple, effective, and won’t leave your facial muscles frozen in place.
One injection into five specific points between and above the eyebrows is all it takes to prevent muscle contractions that cause frown lines temporarily. This leaves the rest of the muscles in your face, able to move naturally.
One 10-20 minute treatment will get you started with an immediate frown and wrinkle-reducing results. You may see the effects of Dysport as soon as the next day. Optimal results may show up in about ten days.
Your face will remain wrinkle and frown-free for up to four months! Not only that, but this non-surgical treatment requires minimal downtime so you can keep your work and a social calendar full.
Botox and Dysport are very similar on a physiologic level, which means that these products are interchangeable.
So, the dosing is different for each product. Find a doctor that is knowledgeable about both products and understands the conversion. If you are no longer responding to Botox, ask your doctor about Dysport.
For example, do not take Dysport if you have:

Side effects can happen with any treatment or procedure. For example, when using Dysport, the most common side effects are:
