WHAT IS DYSPORT®?
Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) for injection is an acetylcholine release inhibitor and neuromuscular blocking agent.
Wrinkles aren’t your style and “frozen face” isn’t either. For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that disappear, not your expressions.
And because Dysport delivers the natural-looking results people want, 98% of users say they’d do it again.
Over half of users see improvement 2-3 days after treatment.
Results last 3-5 months.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WITH TREATMENT?
Skilled injection into various muscles of the upper face and forehead prevents muscle contractions that cause lines and wrinkles, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. In other words, no frozen face, just natural-looking results. You can control your look instead of your look controlling you. That’s the Dysport difference.
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 little to no downtime after your treatment, which means you can get back to your day faster.
Frequently Asked Questions
After treatment it is recommended to avoid vigorous exercise for 24 hours. We also advise to remain upright for 4 hours. Normal activities- sitting, standing, driving, working, etc.- are all okay. Treating your treated area gently with no rubbing, massaging or pressure as well as with gentle topical products for the first 24 hours is advised. Normal makeup application is allowed.
More Common Side Effects:
Small mosquito bite bumps are possible for a few hours after injection. Bruising is a common potential with any needle poke but the use of “ultra fine” needles helps limit both of these more common potential side effect.
Post-poke tension headaches
Uneven appearance of facial features: most commonly “Spock Brow”- if one muscle is more stubborn than another. This can be easily adjusted for during an in office follow up.
