The Benefits of Dysport® for Forehead Lines
Forehead lines are a natural but unwelcome part of aging, and these lines form when making repetitive facial expressions such as frowning or raising our eyebrows. If you’re tired of dealing with pesky wrinkles and over-the-counter creams no longer provide real results, a trained plastic surgeon in Dallas, TX may recommend cosmetic injections like Dysport.
Dysport is a safe, FDA-approved neuromodulator and one of the most popular ways to reduce forehead lines.

Dr. Phillip Dauwe has extensive experience with Dysport and provides patients with a refreshed, rejuvenated look.
Why do I have forehead lines?
Have you ever noticed that the lines on our faces become more pronounced when smiling or frowning? These wrinkles form as a result of gradual collagen loss and can be made worse by environmental factors like sun exposure and smoking. Forehead lines are especially prominent because this area is most active when making facial expressions.
Unfortunately, dynamic wrinkles can impact people as early as their twenties and thirties. It's best to address any lines and creases early to prevent them from becoming more noticeable.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a neuromodulator made of botulinum toxin type A, the same active ingredient found in treatments like BOTOX®. The primary goal of neuromodulators is to weaken facial muscles so the overlying skin becomes smoother and softer looking.
When administered in small doses, Dysport can provide a refreshed appearance while still preserving your natural facial expressions. There's minimal downtime required after cosmetic injections, and results can be seen as quickly as two days.
Why Dysport and not other wrinkle relaxer products?
Some people are unsure which neuromodulator to choose: Dysport or BOTOX. Both products contain the same active ingredient and produce similar outcomes, but there are a few reasons why you may opt for one instead of the other.
BOTOX is a more potent treatment that addresses small or precise areas around the face. This makes it ideal for treating creases around the eyes and lips. But if you have pronounced lines across your forehead or between your brows, Dysport is usually the preferred choice. This is because Dysport is a more diluted version of the product and contains less protein, meaning it can spread out over a greater surface area without sacrificing effectiveness.
