Dysport™ is an alternative injectable treatment to Botox® which was approved by the FDA to treat forehead wrinkles and frown lines in the Spring of 2009. This wrinkle relaxer is derived from the same neurotoxin as Botox®, the botulinum toxin type A, and it was initially developed to treat neuromuscular disorders.
Dysport™ works by blocking the message from the nerves to the muscles which are responsible for certain wrinkles. This prevents the muscles from contracting, thus diminishing the wrinkles. It is commonly used to target the glabellar muscles, which are the muscles in the forehead responsible for the forehead creasing that appears when you frown.
