Dysport®, like Botox®, smooths out facial wrinkles in the upper and lower face by decreasing muscle activity. It is FDA-approved for use in the frown lines and can also be used off-label to treat vertical lip lines, chin dimpling, gummy smile, neck bands, and to turn the corners of the mouth up. Dysport® is also used for excessive sweating in the underarms (hyperhidrosis). Our goal is to reduce your lines, not your expression!
