Most of us are familiar with Botox®, the popular injectable that wards off fine lines and wrinkles. But Botox® is just one of the many brands of botulinum toxin injectables. At the Langdon Center, we offer multiple neuromodulators to ensure that we have the best option for each patient. One of these options is Dysport®, an FDA-approved treatment for frown lines.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an injectable cosmetic treatment that’s used to reduce dynamic wrinkles. Like Botox®, its active ingredient is botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that blocks signals between nerves and muscles to paralyze the muscle temporarily.
Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate, or squint into the sun, your facial muscles contract, and your skin creases. As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity, and those creases deepen into lines that become forever etched on your face. Frown lines between your eyebrows can become particularly noticeable at a relatively young age, making you look angry or worried even when you’re not.
Frown lines and other wrinkles caused by and worsened during facial expressions are called dynamic wrinkles. By temporarily relaxing targeted facial muscles, Dysport® can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face.
