Dysport is a prescription injection administered by a licensed healthcare professional to treat moderate to severe frown lines.
About the procedure*
How does it work?
Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which means they can even develop in younger adults. One treatment temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. In other words, no frozen look, just natural-looking results. You can control your look instead of your look controlling you.
How long does Dysport last?
Dysport may help improve the look of your frown lines for up to 4 months. The majority of patients see improvement in just 2–3 days after treatment. Results of repeat treatments may be comparable to your first use. Another plus? There is minimal downtime after your treatment, which means you can get back to your day faster.
What are the Common Side Effects?
The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea.
Where can Dysport be used?
The most common areas Dysport is used are the frown lines (between eyebrows), forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Dysport can also be used to elevate the eyebrows, and is sometimes used in to treat the lip and lower face.
How long does it take Dysport to work?
Though results vary, there is typically a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows within 2-3 days.
Is Dysport different from BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Dysport® and Botox are both made from botulinum toxin type A. All botulinum toxins have the same mechanism of action: blocking the release of acetylcholine and preventing the muscles from contracting to maintain the aesthetic effect. However, the dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product that you may have previously used.
