WHAT IS DYSPORT AND HOW DOES IT WORK, EXACTLY?
Dysport is an injectable that paralyzes certain muscles in the forehead so they can’t move, thus preventing wrinkles from forming. It can also soften existing lines over time. It’s FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines between the eyebrows, known as frown lines.
Like Botox, Dysport uses a type of botulinum type A to stop muscle movement. So how is Dysport different than Botox?
HOW LONG DOES DYSPORT LAST?
Results can last up to four months.
HOW MANY UNITS DO I NEED?
The number of Dysport units needed depends on the individual, but it is common to see about 50 units used for the frown lines between the eyebrows.
HOW SOON CAN I SEE RESULTS?
Clients should see results within 2–3 days.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
The most common side effects associated with Dysport are headache, nose and throat irritation, pain or a skin reaction at the injection site, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling or drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea.
More serious side effects associated with Dysport result from something known as the spread of toxin effect, in which areas away from the injection site experience such reactions as muscle weakness, double or blurred vision, and loss of bladder control. The most serious complications can be life-threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing.
