Frown lines are “dynamic” — they happen because of the way a person’s face moves. Because frown lines are created by facial movements, such as frowning or squinting, they may develop even in younger adults. Dysport™ is used to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in patients between the ages of 18 and 65.
What is Dysport™?
Prescription Dysport™ is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age.
Dysport™ is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport™ may be comparable to your first use.*
*In clinical trials, the efficacy of Dysport™ was studied in a total of 376 patients and was demonstrated with up to 4 repeated treatments. The safety of Dysport™ has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments.
How does Dysport™ work?
With just one injection into each of five points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport™ stops 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. The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expression, such as laughing, in untreated areas. And with Dysport™, there is little to no downtime after injection.
Treatment Time: With Dysport™, often it’s only a 10-20 minute treatment. Ask your doctor about any precautions you should take after your treatment. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.
Repeatable results: In clinical trials, the efficacy of Dysport™ was demonstrated with up to 4 repeated treatments. You should wait at least 90 days between treatments. The safety of Dysport™ has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments.
Worldwide experience: Dysport™ is used for aesthetic purposes in 36 countries. In U.S. clinical trials, Dysport™ was studied for safety in more than 2400 aesthetic patients. Of those, 769 participated in pivotal studies, with a subset of 376 evaluated for efficacy of Dysport™.
