How Dysport Helps Minimize Frown Lines

Frown lines are one of those telltale signs that age is creeping up on you. You’re eager to have those lines minimized, but you really don’t fancy that “frozen look” that some aesthetic treatments can cause, so what do you do? Glad you asked. Thanks to Dysport®, an incredible cosmetic injectable, you can reduce those frown lines and still look like you!

Dysport is an FDA-approved treatment with proven results for minimizing those frown lines and wrinkles in a natural way. It’s a popular option here at Cleveland Family Health for men and women wanting to restore or maintain their youthful good looks and confidence.

Repetitive muscle movements lead to frown lines

Your facial expressions are all caused by muscles sitting under the skin. When the sun causes you to squint your eyes, or you raise an eyebrow in objection or alarm, you’re using three different muscles that run in different directions to control those fine movements.

Every time you use one of those muscles, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin. When you’re younger, your skin is more flexible and elastic and able to cover these grooves with ease. But as you age and your skin loses that flexibility, those grooves grow more noticeable in the form of frown lines and wrinkles.

Dysport targets muscles that cause frown lines

Dysport is the perfect choice when you want to reduce the appearance of those frown lines between your eyebrows without affecting your entire forehead. Belonging to a class of injectables known as neuromodulators, Dysport minimizes frown lines by relaxing and limiting the movement of muscles around the eyebrows rather than your whole face, as you would find with other treatments.

By injecting Dysport at five key points above and between your eyebrows, targeted muscles begin to relax, often within 48 hours. As these muscles quit contracting, the skin above them smooths out noticeably, and those frown lines diminish. You’re back to a natural and younger-looking face you really can smile about.

Dysport is safe and effective in reducing frown lines and wrinkles

In just one 20-minute treatment, you can expect to see results in 2-3 days, and over 88% of women found Dysport to be effective in 30 days. You’ll be delighted to hear that those results are long-lasting, too. You can expect to go four months before you need a touch-up treatment to keep your forehead smooth and frown line-free.

The treatment takes place in our comfortable practice here in Garner, North Carolina, with Maria Keen, PA-C, who understands why feeling and looking your best is so important to your self-esteem and confidence. During the procedure, Maria will inject Dysport in around, above and between your eyebrows. The injections cause a feeling of pressure rather than pain or discomfort and take just a few minutes to complete.  


With minimal downtime needed after your Dysport session, it’s perfect for fitting in around your hectic schedule to get the incredible results you’ve been looking for without the need to take time away from work. Have your session over your lunch hour!

Maria will provide you with some simple aftercare instructions to make sure you get the most out of your Dysport treatment, and she gives you a timeline for touch-up sessions.
