Dysport is an effective weapon in the anti-aging arsenal, as it can help reduce the wrinkles, fine lines, creases and folds that mar your complexion and make you look older than you feel. This injectable works by paralyzing the tiny muscles responsible for repetitive contractions that lead to wrinkles. It is often used in cases where the client is not experiencing success with BOTOX.
What is Dysport?
Anytime you laugh, frown, smile or squint, your facial muscles are contracting, forming entrenched wrinkles and lines. Over time, these can make you look a lot older than you feel. Dysport is a popular dermal filler that can help reverse wrinkles to achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion. Dysport inhibits the nerve impulses responsible for facial contractions that form wrinkles. It is an effective treatment for crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines.

Results typically last 3 to 6 months before the client will need to repeat their treatment.
What will recovery entail?
