For adults who want a natural look, Dysport is a natural-looking, fast-acting, long-lasting prescription injection proven to help smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows—without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a prescription injection administered by a licensed healthcare professional to treat moderate to severe frown lines (those wrinkles between the eyebrows). Medically, it’s a botulinum neurotoxin (abobotulinumtoxinA), an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent. It temporarily prevents specific muscle movements that cause frown lines.
Side Effects of Dysport
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. For a full list of potential side effects, click here.
Minor redness, swelling, irritation, and itching are unavoidable, but you can rest assured that the side effects will dissipate in a few days. You can also minimize your risk of bruising by avoiding smoking and alcohol consumption a few days before your treatment. Some of the more advanced side effects, such as eyelid swelling and drooping, can be avoided by visiting a highly skilled and certified cosmetic injector.
Inexperienced injectors often cause major side effects because of poor injection techniques or incorrect dosage. However, our injectors calibrate each treatment plan, including the dosage and treatment areas, according to the patient’s unique needs.
What to expect with treatment?
Some of the patients receiving Dysport treatments report feeling a slight pinch. The treatment is completely painless, and many patients proceed without anesthesia. However, if you’re anxious or have a low tolerance for pain, we can apply topical anesthesia to prevent discomfort.
After the treatment, you may experience mild redness, swelling, and irritation around the injection site. If you have bruises, they can be covered with makeup. The results start appearing within 24 to 48 hours with continued improvements over a week. The results last for up to 4 months.
Please note that Dysport provides temporary results — the moderate to severe frown lines will gradually return if you discontinue the treatments.
When will I see results?
The majority of users see improvement in just 2-3 days after treatment. In just one 10 to 20 minute treatment, Dysport may help improve your frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 5 months. Results of repeat treatments may be comparable to your first use. Plus, there is minimal downtime after your treatment, which means you can get back to your day faster.
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 (ACh) 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. The experts at Joli Beautique in Doylestown can help you decide which product is right for you.
