Prescription 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 facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. Get to know more about Dysport, including how it works and what to understand before you start treatment.

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® works

How Dysport works

Moderate to severe frown lines (lines between the eyebrows) happen because the muscles that control facial expression are used often (muscle tightening over and over). After Dysport is injected into the muscles between the eyebrows that control facial expression, the medicine stops the tightening of these muscles for up to 4 months.

Long-lasting, natural-looking results up to 4 months

For up to four entire months, you could have the look that you love. Dysport® works to block the signal from the nerve to the muscles, resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. It’s important to note that you should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days.

Treat your frown lines in just 10 to 20 minutes

Treatment with prescription Dysport can temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines. Treatment generally takes just 10 to 20 minutes, although treatment times can vary from person to person.

Repeatable results

Dysport is a 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. You should wait at least 90 days between Dysport treatments. The safety of Dysport has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments. Clinical studies demonstrated continued efficacy with up to four repeated treatment

Who should and should not use prescription Dysport
