Dysport® If you're serious about treating your frown lines, now is a good time to consider DYSPORT—another prescription treatment option to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.

This injectable treatment for wrinkles is made from the same neurotoxin (botulinum toxin type A) as Botox. Dysport received the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a wrinkle treatment in the spring of 2009, but it has been smoothing out facial folds and lines in Europe, South America, and elsewhere for several years. Like Botox, this injectable was originally developed in the 1990s to treat neuromuscular disorders.

Dysport is similar to Botox, although some research suggests that Dysport may be faster-acting and longer-lasting. It also spreads farther from the injection site, thus allowing a broader area of small wrinkles (such as the “crow’s feet” lines that splay out from the corners of the eyes) to be treated with fewer injections.
