Are You a Candidate?

As we age, our skin undergoes a number of changes that results in the increase in facial wrinkles and lines. If you would like to reduce these facial wrinkles, fine lines and appear younger, then Dysport Toronto treatment is for you.

Procedure Details

Some of the medical skin care treatments available at SpaMedica include Dysport Toronto Injectable. Dysport Injectable, a prescription injection, temporarily improves the appearance of frown lines. It is injected between the eyebrows in adults under 65 years old. Dysport Injectable helps block the signal from the nerve to muscles. This reduces muscle activity and contraction which contributes to frown lines. Dysport Injectable treatments take between 10 to 20 minutes. The results last up to four months.

What Is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable treatment made from botulinum toxin type A. This is the same neurotoxin that Botox Injectable is made from.
