Dysport® is the latest botulinum type A wrinkle treatment to receive FDA approval in the United States and is now available in Little Rock. Like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® is a neuromuscular wrinkle blocker; it blocks the nerve impulses of tiny muscles that cause wrinkles in the face, allowing them to flatten out and become less visible.
Muscles of the face frequently contract and cause the skin to fold. After a certain age, with sun exposure and loss of skin elasticity, these folds start to form static wrinkles. Treatments like Dysport®, which contain botulinum type A, are designed to disrupt this process of wrinkle formation and provide patients with smoother, younger looking skin.
Dysport® in cosmetic treatments such as the following:
- Reduction of crow’s feet/eye wrinkles
- Reduction of frown lines between the eyebrows
- Reducing the appearance of forehead lines

Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
A common misperception regarding injectables is that they somehow change the character of your facial expression. The results are effective, yet subtle. Nobody will be able to tell you received Dysport® injections.
How does botulinum toxin type A reduce wrinkles?
In small doses, the neurotoxin blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to specific muscles that cause wrinkles.
