Dysport® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that addresses the presence of fine lines and wrinkles through a process known as neuromodulation.
Understanding Wrinkle Relaxers
While wrinkle reducers and dermal fillers are commonly used together, they work differently and are used to treat different lines. Wrinkle relaxers are made with proteins that are derived from botulinum toxin and work by temporarily relaxing muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles through repeated movement (these are known as “dynamic wrinkles”).
The most common dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid and are designed to add volume to the face where the aging process has caused the skin to sag or droop. Neurotoxins are used to treat the forehead and around the eyes, whereas fillers are injected in the cheeks and around the mouth.
