When Dysport is injected into the muscle that forms these lines, it blocks the neurotransmitters from sending signals from the muscle to the nerve ending. This “freezes” the muscle so that it cannot contract and cause the wrinkle. The freezing is temporary, usually lasting around 3-4 months, depending on how your body metabolizes or breaks down the drug.
Dysport is great to use as a preventative treatment. If you are younger in age, using it now will stop your muscles from being able to create the frown lines and therefore they will not form as deeply. If you are older and the wrinkles are already noticeable, Dysport will help soften moderate and even severe frown lines. Results will look very natural when administered correctly. If you have concerns about looking too overdone, injections can be done gradually over a few visits. While it is considered very safe, there is some risk for side effects. Minor side effects include pain at the injection site, headache, rash, and swelling around the eyelids.
