For those who desire a more natural look while still improving the look of frown lines, there is Dysport.
Dysport is a prescription for the temporary improvement in the appearance of severe to moderate frown lines between the eyebrows. This treatment is for those under the age of 65 who don’t want a look that is overdone.
Dysport targets only the facial muscles in the problem area, allowing all other muscles to move and react freely and naturally. The result is that you still look like you – with your normal facial expressions – while also smoothing out those unwanted frown lines.
How does Dysport work?
Dysport works as one injection into each of the 5 points between the eyebrows, temporarily preventing those muscles from contracting and creating frown lines. All other facial muscles are unaffected, resulting in a natural look.
Typically, a Dysport treatment takes between 10 and 20 minutes to complete. There are little to no side effects, so you should be able to resume normal activity immediately following treatment.
How long does a Dysport treatment last?
Dysport treatments can last up to 4 months. More than half of Dysport patients report visible results within 2-3 days of receiving a treatment.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects associated with a Dysport treatment are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus infection, and nausea.
If you experience any trouble swallowing or breathing after a Dysport treatment you need to seek medical attention immediately.
Dysport should not be used by anyone who has an allergy to cow’s milk protein or any of the Dysport ingredients, or anyone who has previously had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product.
The best way to find out if Dysport is right for you is to speak with your doctor about it.
