Dysport® is an FDA-approved injection treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles in the forehead. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® is injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. Dysport® injections are made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, the same protein used in BOTOX® injections.
If you’re serious about treating your frown lines, now is a good time to consider Dysport® — another prescription treatment option to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. But, before you do, it’s important to understand who Dysport® is for.
Dysport® is for adults less than 65 years of age who want a prescription injection that helps temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
Facial fillers are injections which fill out wrinkled or uneven areas of the face. They include Perlane, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Sculptra and even your own tissues taken from another part of your body.
Many of us notice fine lines developing on the face in our thirties. These can often be the result of muscular activity or sagging. The lines that form on your face are areas where the body’s’ own collagen has thinned and broken leaving a depressed line. The wrinkles around the eye can often be due to muscle activity and may be improved with BOTOX or Dysport. If the lines are very deep or are due to skin sagging e.g. the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds), then a filler may often soften or sometimes even eliminate the line. The filler is injected into the skin itself to plump up the depressed line in the skin. When the lips are injected the doctor places the filler on the inside of the lip to turn it out a little.
