Dysport® | Frown/Forehead lines, Crow's Feet | Boston MA*
Say goodbye to frown lines between the eyebrows (glabeller lines), the forehead lines and crow's feet.
DYSPORT® is a substance that is safely used to inactivate muscle movement that creates the lines and wrinkles in the forehead, the vertical glabellar folds between the eyebrows and the "crow's feet" area near the eyes. DYSPORT® prevents the muscles from contracting and allows the overlying skin to relax and assume a non-wrinkled appearance.
Frown lines 101: What causes them?
Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the muscles forms frown lines between the eyebrows.
Wrinkles are not only age related. Frown lines are “dynamic”—they happen because of the way a person’s face moves. Because frown lines are created by facial movements such as frowning or squinting, they may develop even in younger adults. Dysport is used to treat moderate to severe frown lines in adult patients less than 65 years of age.
The muscles above and between the eyebrows contract and tighten, and can cause wrinkles. Dysport blocks the nerve signal that causes these facial muscles to contract. This ultimately results in a localized reduction of muscle activity in the treated area and temporarily stops the contraction of these muscles.
