Dysport - Botulinum Toxin® Type A
Botulinum Toxin® Type A works by inhibiting the nerve activity in a particular muscle. This in turn temporarily paralyses that muscle.
Whenever you laugh, frown 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. If the muscles you use to make a frown are temporarily immobilised, other nearby muscles will pull out those lines, smoothing the skin and restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face.
Dysport is commonly used to diminish frown lines (between your brows) and crows feet (lines on the side of your eyes).
The length of effectiveness of treatment can differ between individuals, but is usually between 3-5months.
