Dysport is an FDA-approved injection that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the forehead. It is similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic as its mechanism blocks the ability of the facial muscles to contract. Dysport has the distinct advantage of being able to diffuse over 300 percent further into the skin than BOTOX, so fewer injection points are necessary. The procedure is shorter and limits the occurrence of the injection point irritation.
