Dysport® smooths out lines and wrinkles that occur when facial muscles contract.
Although approved by the FDA only in 2009, Dysport has been used safely in Europe for years (as Reloxin) for both medical and cosmetic purposes. Dysport® relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the brow, forehead, and around the eyes. After treatment, you look more relaxed and confident and this helps you to feel better about yourself.
You may be concerned that Dysport® injections will cause botulism, a potentially fatal paralytic disease associated with a certain strain of bacteria. Although infection with this bacterium may cause botulism, injection of a chemical extract (Dysport) from these bacteria does not. Dysport is approved in the US to treat facial wrinkles of the brow and muscular spasm of the neck. All other uses of this FDA-approved product are considered “off-label,” meaning that these uses are not specifically approved by the FDA.
