Dysport Q & A
What is DYSPORT™?
DYSPORT™ is a prescription medicine that can be used as an anti wrinkle treatment.
It is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults younger than 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary). Frown lines (wrinkles) happen because the muscles that control facial expression are used often (muscle tightening over and over). After DYSPORT™ is injected into the muscles that control facial expression, the medicine stops the tightening of these muscles for up to 4 months.
Active ingredient: (botulinum toxin Type A). Inactive ingredients: human albumin, and lactose. DYSPORT™ may contain cow’s milk protein.
