Dysport

What is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable medication that blocks nerve signals along the pathways to the muscles in your forehead and between your eyebrows. Dysport offers results that look natural without giving you a  “frozen” look, or preventing your face from expressing your emotions.

Am I a candidate for Dysport?

Dysport is used to smooth out wrinkles and creases caused by repetitive muscle contraction. If you have “worry lines” between your eyebrows or creases in your forehead, and you’re generally in good health, Dysport may be right for you.

Other types of creases, like the ones that run along the nasolabial folds of your mouth, are caused by the process of aging, including the breakdown of collagen in your skin. These types of wrinkles don’t respond well to Dysport injections.

What should I expect during treatment?

The team of providers at the Center for Family Practice LLC has advanced training and extensive experience to perform Dysport injections safely, with minimal discomfort or side effects. Dysport treatments aren’t painful, but you may feel a pinching sensation similar to other types of injections. Usually at least five injections are needed for optimal results.

Following treatment, you can resume daily activities right away. It’s a good idea to avoid strenuous activity such as exercise for at least two hours after your appointment. If you notice redness or inflammation around the injection site, you can treat it with ice, but you should avoid rubbing or massaging the area.

How long will my results last?

You should notice that your creases look smoother, your face looks more youthful, and your resting expression is more pleasant two to four days after your Dysport treatment. Typically, results last up to four months.

Is Dysport safe?

Dysport is FDA-approved to treat wrinkles caused by contracted muscles in the forehead area. You may have some temporary side effects near the injection site, including:

  • Irritation
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising

These typically subside within 48 hours. Occasionally, people experience a brief, mild headache after treatment with Dysport. More severe side effects are rare.

The experienced providers at the Center for Family Practice LLC will discuss the benefits and potential risks of Dysport injections with you before beginning treatment.
