What is Dysport?
Dysport is a prescription injection that blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
What are the most common areas treated by Dysport?
- The lines that appear between the eyebrows
- Worry lines of forehead
- Sagging eye brow
- Crow’s feet
Where is the Dysport injected?
Your physician will selectively place tiny amounts of the medicine in areas of the lower forehead, upper forehead or around the eyes, where accentuation muscle expression exists. Each muscle is readily visible to the skilled physician, and can be safely injected in a single session.
Are the Effects Lasting?
Treatment with Dysport only takes a few minutes. The results are noticeable in two to five days and peak in one to two weeks. Gradually, over a period of three to five months, the effects of Dysport wane. Repeat injections are performed as lines become more visible. Successive injections may reduce the amount and frequency required for desired results.
What are the side effects of Dysport?
The side effects from Dysport are minimal when they are properly administered by a trained physician. You may experience mild discomfort as the solution is injected into the treatment site, and there is a small chance of bruising. In very rare cases, there is a temporary, slight lowering of the eyebrow or eyelid, which often goes unnoticed by the patient.
How will I look after my treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, there may be mild redness at the injection site. This redness resolves in a few hours. Bruising is very uncommon.
