Do you want to get rid of lines between eyebrows, forehead, around eyes? Botulinum toxin A injection will be the answer. DYSPORT™ is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults between 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary). Frown lines (wrinkles) happen because the muscles that control facial expression are used often (muscle tightening over and over). After DYSPORT™ is injected into the muscles that control facial expression, the medicine stops the tightening of these muscles for 4-8 months.
Here is some before & after pictures.
The effects will get to the peak at 4-8 weeks. Some may experience heaviness around eyebrows and eyelids, it should recover in a month.
Botulinum toxin A injection is also effective in treating hyperhidrosis and body odor.
