Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as to the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as DYSPORT®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.
Dysport is a neuromuscular blocking agent that works in the same manner as Botox and Xeomin. Studies suggest that regular Dysport treatments not only make you look younger while in effect—but may prevent a further deepening of dynamic lines and wrinkles over time—helping to delay the aging process.
Botox is used cosmetically to reduce the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines, crow's feet, horizontal lines in the forehead, and the hard "11's" between your brows. Botox temporarily stops these muscles from contracting, which smoothes the lines and wrinkles on your face. Though used infrequently, small amounts of Botox can be administered by the corners of the mouth to raise them or injected into the chin to stop dimpling and the "orange peel" look.
