Prescription Dysport in North Scottsdale AZ from Adam and Eve Med Spa in Scottsdale Arizona is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. Dysport is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport may be comparable to your first use.
Over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows, Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.

You work out, eat right, and take care of your skin. Of course, cosmetic creams and lotions will always have their place in your regimen—but for moderate to severe frown lines, you may want prescription treatment. Get the facts about what causes frown lines, then see what you can do to help temporarily improve their appearance. Frown lines are caused by a number of factors. Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the brow muscles forms lines between the eyebrows. Frown lines are “dynamic”—they happen because of the way a person’s face moves. Contrary to popular belief, frown lines are not always caused by age. Age is a factor, but repeated facial movements, such as frowning or squinting, can also create frown lines, which means they may develop even in younger adults.
With Dysport, often it’s only a 10-20 minute treatment. Ask your Regency’s or Adam & Eve’s practitioners about any precautions you should take after your treatment. Call your practitioner or get medical help right away if you have any problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.
In clinical trials, the efficacy of Dysport was demonstrated with up to 4 repeated treatments. You should wait at least 90 days between treatments. The safety of Dysport has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments.
Dysport is used for aesthetic purposes in 36 countries. In U.S. clinical trials, Dysport was studied for safety in more than 2400 aesthetic patients. Of those, 769 participated in pivotal studies, with a subset of 376 evaluated for efficacy of Dysport.
