What is Dysport?
Dysport is an injection that blocks the signal from the nerves to the muscles, which reduces muscle activity to combat frown lines and facial wrinkles. Frown lines are most commonly caused by repetitive facial movements in your brow region, which can cause there to be vertical lines between your eyebrows. Other repetitive facial movements like frowning or squinting can cause lines to show up at an earlier age than usual.
Dysport is commonly used to combat facial lines caused by the contraction of your facial muscles but is not able to treat lines caused by sun damage or other external factors. Since Dysport can be targeted to a specific area, the skin and muscles around the treatment section will not be affected and will be able to move naturally.
