Discover the Dysport Difference

Dysport Botulinum toxin type A

Frown Lines – A Matter of Expression

Glabellar lines, or “frown lines,” are vertical wrinkles on the forehead that appear between the eyebrows. This is not totally related to the ageing process. Because frown lines are created by facial expression and movement (for example during frowning and squinting), they can actually start to appear at a younger age. The appearance of the lines can become worse as the collagen in that area of the forehead breaks down.

There are several factors, in addition to facial expression, that can cause or worsen the appearance of frown lines, including:

  • Sun exposure – UV light in the sun can damage collagen
  • Aging – can create a loosening of collagen fibers and increased skin elasticity
  • Smoking – can reduce the amount of new collagen produced.

Effective treatments for this area can help by reducing the muscle activity in the forehead, which will help smooth the wrinkles and create a younger appearance.

What is Dysport?

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 natural facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.

How does Dysport Work?

Dysport blocks the signal form the nerve to the treated muscle, which temporarily reduces the movement of certain upper facial muscles that cause wrinkles.

You should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days.

Treatment with Dysport generally takes just 10 to 20 minutes.

Dysport delivers noticeable, natural results that are fast and lasting. See the difference Dysport can make.

How Can Dysport Help?

With just one treatment, Dysport will temporarily erase your frown lines by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles. By doing this, Dysport will relax the muscles that cause the deep lines and wrinkles on the forehead.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Some patients see results as soon as 24 hours with the average time for full results being three days.

How Can I Maintain my Results?

The improvements seen with Dysport are only temporary. You may want to book your next appointment about 12 weeks after your treatment if needed. Your doctor will be able to tell you how often you can get injections of Dysport.
