Dysport® is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar (frown) lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity in adult patients. Dysport® has been used for more than 15 years to treat millions of patients worldwide, and it is approved by the health ministries in many countries.
What is Dysport?
Dyspoprt is the trade mark of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a purified toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In large amounts, this toxin blocks the nerve impulses to muscles, causing a form of paralysis called Botulism. By using extremely small doses of Dysport, injected directly into a specific muscle, only the action of that muscle will be paralyzed. Therefore, the problems that muscle cause, like a twitch spasm or frown line, will be stopped.
Where is the Dysport injected?
The frown line between the eyebrows is caused by the action of a muscle called the corrugator. You can feel this as a thickening just below the inside of your eyebrows, when you purposefully make yourself frown. Dr. Hawrych injects Dysport directly into this corrugator muscle and this stops your ability to draw eyebrows together when you frown. Once the muscle is paralyzed, it cannot contract, and the frown lines gradually fades away. Dysport is also effective in the treatment of crowâs feet, forehead wrinkles.
What is the cost of Treatment?
Dr. Hawrych charges between $ 3 to $4 per unit depending on how many areas of the face are treated. The minimum of 60 units are used for each treatment. You can also take advantage of Rebate Program by Medicis to received $50 with your treatment.
