Diminish unwanted
frown lines

Dysport is a cosmetic injectable derived from botulinum toxin type A to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and other dynamic wrinkles caused by the overuse of certain facial expressions, such as laughing or squinting. By targeting specific facial muscles, it reduces the contraction that leads to wrinkles, resulting in a smoother complexion. Dysport helps diminish the signs of aging and achieve a more youthful appearance.

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Bunny lines on the nose
  • Neck bands (platysmal bands)
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the underarms

How Dysport works

Dysport in Shelby Township works by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscle contraction, utilizing botulinum toxin type A. When injected into targeted facial muscles, it inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle movement. This temporary paralysis of the muscles prevents them from contracting vigorously, softening the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Over time, the treated muscles gradually relax, resulting in smoother skin. Dysport offers a non-invasive solution to reduce the signs of aging.

Benefits of Dysport:

  • Minimally invasive treatment that causes minimal discomfort
  • Rapid onset of action, often noticeable within a few days
  • May last longer than some other botulinum toxin treatments
  • Can spread more evenly, potentially requiring fewer injections
  • Known to provide natural-looking results
  • FDA-approved for multiple treatment areas
  • No downtime after treatment, allowing for an immediate return to daily activities
  • Can be used as a preventive measure to delay the onset of wrinkles
