Prescription Dysport is an 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.
With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport 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.
You should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days.

What causes frown lines?
Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the forehead muscles forms lines between the eyebrows. Frown lines are "dynamic" —they happen because of the way a person's face moves.
Are they always related to age?
No. Because frown lines are created by facial movements, such as frowning or squinting, they may develop even in younger adults.
What can you do about them?
Treatment with prescription Dysport can temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines. Treatment generally takes just 10 to 20 minutes.

Dysport treatment begins to take effect after 3-10 days and will typically last for 3 months. You should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days.
Common side effects include injection site pain, bruising, or irritation, and eyelid swelling or drooping.
- Fast to work and does the job! Review by Susan
I've used Botox and Dysport....Dysport is faster to freeze the muscles and costs less, too. CC Medi Spa is knowledgable about how to inject, and did fabulous. I'll be back! (Posted on 12/21/14)
