Unwanted hair is a common aesthetic concern for both men and women in today’s society. Hair removal can be obtained by shaving, waxing, plucking, chemical depilatories, and electrolysis. While these techniques can be effective, they are often temporary and/or painful. Although electrolysis may permanently remove hair, it is a slow and operator-dependent procedure with variable efficacy.

The number one tell-tale sign of aging is the color, tone and texture of the skin. One of the most common effects of ultraviolet radiation exposure on the skin is the appearance of brown spots within the epidermis.

Dysport® treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity.
