Offered as an alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® is a non-surgical treatment that reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face by relaxing the underlying muscles. Dysport was approved by the Federal Drug Administration in 2009. Dr. Ben Light is proud to offer this highly effective new treatment at his practice in Decatur, Alabama.
Dysport® treatment generally takes only between ten and twenty minutes to complete. Dr. Light injects Dysport® into the muscles that cause frown lines to develop on the brow. The active ingredient in Dysport, botulinum toxin type A, is the same substance in BOTOX® Cosmetic. This ingredient stops the muscles in the brow from contracting and helps smooth the lines that cause patients to appear sad, angry, or tired even when they are not.
