Dysport, like Botox, is a form of botulinum toxin injected into the skin above the eyebrows to temporarily relax the muscles that cause “frown lines.”
Whenever your face makes a movement – you smile, squint or frown for instance – your facial muscles contract and the skin over those muscles creases. These are called dynamic wrinkles because they disappear when the facial movements stop. As you age and your skin loses its elasticity, those creases deepen into static, or permanent, lines and wrinkles.
Dysport is injected directly into the muscles that cause facial wrinkles, temporarily immobilising them. It specifically targets the globular muscles – the ones that form creases on your forehead when you frown.
