What is Dysport?
Dysport, also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, is a neuromodulator and cosmetic injectable made of botulinum toxin A, the same substance from which Botox is made. While Dysport has many medical uses, it can also be used cosmetically to help freeze muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, or the wrinkles that appear due to repeated facial movements. By freezing the underlying muscles in areas where dynamic wrinkles appear, the muscle is no longer to contract, thus diminishing the appearance of lines and folds, and preventing existing wrinkles from developing further. Dysport for crow’s feet is just one possible use for this cosmetic injectable—it can also be used safely and effectively to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines, the lines between the eyebrows that appear when we frown.
