Dysport® is a muscle relaxant that has been in worldwide use since 1991 and was approved by the FDA for use in the U.S. in April of 2009. A wrinkle-reducer and botulinum toxin similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, there are subtle differences:
Best known for treating moderate to severe frown lines, forehead furrows and crows feet are other areas where Dysport® is particularly effective.
Slight, momentary discomfort is reported by some patients. There is no downtime associated with the injections; minimal redness and bruising may be seen at the injection site for only a few days.
Dysport is a cosmetic procedure that quickly prevents contraction-related wrinkles from making too bold a statement. Although it is only a temporary solution for the appearance of wrinkles like crow’s feet and frown lines, the injection is popular because it really seems to relax your look. While the change may be subtle, smoothing out wrinkles near the eye and forehead area can seem to take years off the overall appearance. After seeing the results, you can bet this treatment was worth it!
