Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe glabellar lines or frown lines between the eyebrows. It is recommended for adults less than 65 years of age.
As opposed to other treatments that result in a “frozen look”, Dysport will temporarily treat the facial muscles in the desired area – between the eyebrows and only between the eyebrows; untreated muscles will keep working as they normally do. Dysports’ results will minimize the frown lines and not minimize your expressions.
Dysport is approved in 57 countries and has 25 years of clinical experience worldwide.
How Does it Work?
Dysport treats lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity.
Dysport will be injected into each of the 5 points between and above eyebrows, temporarily preventing any muscle contraction that cause frown lines in those 5 specific points, leaving the rest of your face untreated and moving naturally with your expressions.
The procedure takes just 10-to-20 minutes and the results can last up to 4 months.
Results are not immediate, and you can expect to see improvement in just 2-3 days after the treatment.
