Facial movements such as frowning or squinting can create frown lines. Frown lines can even develop in younger adults. Very similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® is a wrinkle relaxer approved to treat forehead wrinkles and frown lines. It is approved to treat wrinkles in 69 countries and was approved by the FDA in 2009 in the U.S. Dysport® is offered for use at A Solution For Beauty by Pierini to treat moderate to severe frown lines in adult patients.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A like BOTOX® Cosmetic. It blocks the nerve impulses that cause your facial muscles to contract and form lines. The main ingredient is a neurotoxin, but the amount is so incredibly small that it’s considered non-toxic. It relaxes facial muscles and allows unsightly lines and wrinkles to flatten out giving you a younger more rested look.

What makes Dysport® Different from BOTOX® Cosmetic?
The primary difference between BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® is that Dysport® works within two to three days where BOTOX® Cosmetic may take three to five days. This rapid response is appealing to someone who wants to improve their appearance before a social event or meeting. Some studies have shown that Dysport® injections may keep wrinkles at bay for five months in the crow’s feet area, as opposed to the approximate four month timeframe found when using BOTOX® Cosmetic.
How does Dysport® Work?
The Dysport® procedure usually takes about 15 minutes. Dysport® treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by temporarily preventing muscle contractions known to cause frown lines. When the effects begin to fade, you can return for a follow-up treatment. The potential side effects of Dysport® are similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic. They include local numbness, swelling, bruising or a burning sensation during injection. Placing ice on the injection site before and after the procedure can reduce side effects.
