Dysport

A NEW FDA APPROVED WRINKLE TREATMENT

It is simple, effective and non-surgical. Dysport works by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead. The result is reduced and smoothed away frown-lines and wrinkles.

Dysport may be newly approved by the FDA, but it has been around for some time now. The use of Dysport is supported by over a decade of clinical experience. It originates from the United Kingdom and was first introduced in the early 1990s. It was used to successfully treat numerous neurological and ophthalmic conditions. Since then, there has been a great increase in understanding of the many uses of Dysport. Thousands of treatments have been safely and effectively performed for a variety of conditions ranging from frown lines to excessive under arm sweating.

WHAT CAN DYSPORT DO FOR YOU?

Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint into the sun, your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that become permanently etched on your face. Frown lines between your eyes can become particularly noticeable at a relatively young age, making you look angry or worried even when you’re not.

By temporarily immobilizing the muscles you use to frown, Dysport can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. Because you will be physically unable to frown after treatment, you may even lose the urge to frown. The lasting effect of treatment with Dysport can differ between individuals after which further courses of treatment may be necessary. Speak with your specialist about the results you can expect with Dysport.

Many people find after several treatments that they don’t need another one for longer, because they have “unlearned” the habit of frowning or squinting that originally led to the development of these lines.

WHAT EXACTLY IS DYSPORT?

Dysport is a protein extracted from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The protein was initially used for the treatment of motor disorders and various kinds of involuntary muscular spasms, including cerebral palsy. It was further developed to treat a wide variety of neuromuscular disorders, for which it is licensed in over 60 countries.

In New Zealand, Dysport now has registration approval under the Medicines Act for the treatment of frown lines and for excessive sweating under the armpits.
