Frequently Asked Questions About Dysport
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a medically derived subunit of botulinum toxin called abobotuliunum toxin. This acts to weaken the muscles in the areas which it is placed. The precise placement of Dysport into specific areas of the face will improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How does Dysport work?
Dysport works by weakening the muscles of facial expression that insert onto the surface of the skin.
