Neuromodulator injection is the most popular aesthetic treatment throughout the United States. These injectables are strategically placed to reduce fine lines between the brows, around the eyes, the forehead, and many other areas of the face, jaw and neck. Neuromodulators can also relieve tension and migraine headaches and reduce excessive sweating.
Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) is Galdermas’s trade-name for the protein and neurotoxin that is most commonly used for frown lines (glabellar movement). Similar to Botox, Dysport functions by diminishing facial muscle contraction which, over time, creates characteristic wrinkles and lines in the overlying skin. Dysport is used cosmetically by injecting a designated facial muscle with a specific number of units to diminish dynamic movement. Dysport is an effective treatment for subtly smoothing the appearance of skin lines and wrinkles. It also prevents new lines from forming. Dysport begins to work in 1-3 days with full onset at 2 weeks., with its effects lasting 3-4 months.
