Our physician-administered Dysport treatments originate from the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name Dysport®. This popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, and crows feet near the eyes. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles so that the skin has a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
Our Dysport treatment takes about 10-15 minutes. For those who prefer numbing cream beforehand, plan on an extra 20-30 minutes so that the numbing cream has time to take effect.
Yes, you can go back to work immediately. There is no down time with our Dysport treatments.
The effects of our Dysport injections will appear within 7 days, and typically last 4-6 months, however it varies by person.
Along with its desired effects, Dysport treatments can cause unwanted effects. These are rare, but can include temporary soreness or mild bruising around the injection site. Some people may experience a slight headache that lasts for several hours after treatment (it is safe to take Tylenol or other pain reliever to help with this).
In a very small percentage of cases there can be a complication called "ptosis" (a drooping eyelid) which may last a few days or up to 4 weeks. Rarely, an allergic reaction can cause a skin rash or "flu like" symptoms. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of these side effects.
You should not have Dysport treatments if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or at all if you have a neuromuscular disease.
