About Dysport™

by Ramtin Kassir, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Dysport is an FDA-approved injection treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles in the forehead. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport is injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. Dr. Kassir conducted a study that showed Dysport to be more effective than Botox in the treatment of facial wrinkles.

Dysport was developed in Europe during the early 1990s, and has been used there successfully for several years. In April 2009, Dysport was approved by the FDA for use in the US.
