What is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable treatment that can treat, reduce, and prevent the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines. It is FDA approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines also called glabellar lines or "11s" between the eyebrows. It is also used to treat other common areas such as: forehead, crow's feet, masseter muscles, platysmal bands in the neck, outer lip, upper lip, and dimples on the chin.

How does Dysport work?

Dysport is injected directly into the muscles that are causing the wrinkles by using a tiny needle. It works by temporarily blocking the communication between nerves and muscles to stop injected muscles from contracting and wrinkling the skin. The process of blocking muscle contractions doesn't damage skin or muscle, but it gets rid of crow's feet, frown lines, and other creases that appear when you make facial expressions. Beyond smoothing existing wrinkles, the treatment can also be used preventively, to minimize muscle movement and prevent future wrinkles and forehead lines

How long will Dysport last?

It typically will last about 3-5months, depending on the individual. Factors that influence how long it lasts include amount used, history of usage, and lifestyle factors.

What should I avoid before Dysport treatment?

Avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, or fish oil for 2 weeks prior to treatment. (Note: If your personal physician prescribed aspirin to you, do not stop aspirin without your physician’s approval). Taking arnica orally for a week before and after your treatment can help minimize bruising. We recommend waiting at least two weeks prior and two weeks after any dental cleanings and vaccines when receiving treatment.

What should I avoid after Dysport treatment?

Don’t exercise, lay down for 3 hours, rub the area, go in a hot tub or Jacuzzi or do anything that will increase circulation to prevent the Dysport from traveling too far. We do not recommend traveling on a plane for 72 hours after treatment.
