How Dysport Works
Many facial wrinkles are the result of nerve cells that have been conditioned to tell muscles to contract. Because we so often contract muscles in the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth, the nerves begin telling the muscles to remain contracted.
Dysport blocks these signals from the nerves, allowing the muscles to relax and smoothing the wrinkles that they cause. Habitual muscle contractions are blocked, but after a short time the nerve extends new branches to the muscles that allow for voluntary muscle contraction, so you don’t lose expressiveness in treated areas.
