How it works
Dysport is administered by Dr. Guarino in our Hamilton medical spa. The prescription formula is injected into the muscle between and above the eyebrows. Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
