What is Dysport?
As we age, the emotions and expressions of our faces contribute to the lines we see when we look in the mirror. In order to combat these physical manifestations of our age, we can turn to the injectable botulinum toxin, most often used to smooth out forehead lines.
Dysport, which has been widely used in Miami for over a decade and was approved by the FDA in 2009, is a purified Botulinum toxin for cosmetic use. While it is most frequently used to diminish forehead lines, it is also helpful in reducing the appearance of Glabellar lines/frown lines and Crow's Feet, as well as reducing muscle spasms.
Dysport injections treat moderate to severe frown lines. While the patient ages, their expressions make permanent lines on their face.
To combat these frown lines, Dysport Miami is usually applied between the eyebrows. This product can also be applied on the forehead or what is known as crow’s feet on the outskirts of the eyes. It can also get rid of any bizarre muscle twitches or spasms. This treatment is actually one of the most popular used in Miami, FL. In 2009, it passed the FDA safety test.
Dysport stops the signals that are sent to the muscles. This causes the muscles to relax, giving the patients a beautiful and youthful looking face. It can also be combined with dermal filler in order to give the patients a liquid face-lift. Dysport Miami improves the bunny lines, the marionette lines and the smoker’s lines. However, most doctors prefer to use Dysport to treat the forehead lines.
