What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a muscle relaxant injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
How Does Dysport® Last?
Over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. Dr. Shanthala will inject the Dysport® after evaluating the anatomy over the eyebrows, forehead and eye area. It blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
How Long Does Dysport® Last?
For up to three to four entire months, you could have the look that you love. It 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. It’s important to note that you should not be treated more than every 90 days.
