NEW YORK, April 6 While Botox has long been the only available means of banishing facial wrinkles, Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg, a prominent cosmetic plastic surgeon in Manhattan, recently introduced into his practice a new, state-of-the-art technique called Dysport. Dysport, which has been used around the world for nearly twenty years, may be better than Botox for two important reasons: it shows results faster and it provides a more natural-looking appearance.
"Over time, the tightening of the muscles between the eyebrows causes wrinkles called glabellar lines," Dr. Greenberg explains. "Just one injection of Dysport blocks the nerve signal that makes these muscles contract, resulting in a dramatic improvement in frown lines. Positive results are generally seen within a day or two of treatment, days earlier than with Botox. And unlike Botox, Dysport may allow for natural facial expressions."
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Dysport in April 2009, but it has just launched in New York City. It has been used in other countries, including the United Kingdom, since 1991. As of October 2009, it has been in use in 36 countries.
