What is Dysport?

It is an injectable chemical muscle relaxant that works to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines by blocking muscular nerve signals.

An injection of small amounts of Dysport into a specific facial muscle blocks its impulse. This weakens the muscle and diminishes unwanted lines. Dysport has been approved for cosmetic purposes in the United States since April 2009. Currently, Dysport is used in 75 countries worldwide.

Where can Dysport be injected?

Typical injection areas are the forehead and around the eyes.

What is the treatment like?

The treatment only takes about ten minutes and you may return to work or normal activities immediately. It requires only a few small injections; and although topical anesthetic is generally not necessary, it can be used if requested. Ice packs are used to decrease any chance of bruising.

What can I expect after the treatment?

You need to refrain from any aerobic activity that day and avoid lying down for 3-4 hours. Typically, Dysport takes effect in 5-7 days with the maximum effect noted at the two week point. Most patients find they need to repeat their treatments in 3-6 months.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are generally minimal, temporary, and typically relate to the local injection site. Soreness or mild bruising are not common but may occur around the injection site. A temporary headache is not uncommon after injections in the forehead region. All possible side effects are mild, reversible, self-limiting and ultimately temporary if, in the rare instance, they occur.

Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?

You may combine Dysport with one or a combination of the many types of fillers we offer at Ark-La-Tex Dermatology. This will enhance your results while restoring volume loss.
