How Dysport® works
Over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. 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.
Frown line causes and treatment
You work out, eat right, and take care of your skin. Of course, cosmetic creams and lotions will always have their place in your regimen—but for moderate to severe frown lines, you may want prescription treatment.
Get the facts about what causes frown lines, then see what you can do to help temporarily improve their appearance.
The cause of frown lines
Frown lines are caused by a number of factors. Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the brow muscles forms lines between the eyebrows. Frown lines are “dynamic”—they happen because of the way a person’s face moves.
Frown lines and aging
Contrary to popular belief, frown lines are not always caused by age. Age is a factor, but repeated facial movements, such as frowning or squinting, can also create frown lines, which means they may develop even in younger adults.
How Dysport® can help
Prescription Dysport temporarily improves 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. Now your eyes will tell your story, instead of distracting from it by revealing the lines between them.
