What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a prescription injection that is FDA approved for the temporary improvement in the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (otherwise known as glabellar lines) in patients less than 65 years of age.
Dysport® is a purified form of botulinum toxin that has been shown to deliver temporary improvement in moderate to severe frown lines by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity, temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines and reducing the appearance of frown lines.
Wrinkles aren’t your style and the “frozen look” isn’t either. For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that disappear, not your expressions.
And because Dysport delivers the natural-looking results people want, 97% of users say they’d do it again. Additionally, Dysport is approved in 57 countries and has 25 years of clinical experience worldwide.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Dysport work?
Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which means they can even develop in younger adults. One injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. In other words, no frozen look, just natural-looking results. You can control your look instead of your look controlling you.
How long does Dysport last?
Forget frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 4 months.
You’ve got better things to do than think about what your frown lines look like. In just one 10- to 20-minute treatment, Dysport may help improve the look of your frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 4 months. The majority of patients see improvement in just 2–3 days after treatment. Results of repeat treatments may be comparable to your first use. Another plus? There is minimal downtime after your treatment, which means you can get back to your day faster.
What to expect from Dysport Treatment process?
When considering any kind of treatment, it’s important to understand as much as possible about the procedure. Here’s a general step-by-step guide to help you before, during and after your Dysport procedure.
Discuss with your doctor your expectations and whether you have any health conditions or allergies that could interfere with your treatment. It’s your appointment, so don’t hesitate to ask your doctor questions.
Effective treatment requires one injection into each of five points between and above the eyebrows. Although office visit times vary, the procedure generally takes 10 to 20 minutes. Your healthcare professional will determine the exact placement of each injection to get results that are right for you.
Ask your doctor about any precautions you should take after treatment. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any problems swallowing, speaking or breathing. If one or more of these happen, do not drive a car, operate machinery or do other dangerous activities.
There should be little to no down time after your treatment. More than half of reported patients saw improvement 2-3 days after treatment, and results may last up to 4 months.† Results of repeat treatments may be comparable to your first use.
To maintain your improvements, you should wait to discuss a treatment schedule with your doctor. As with any botulinum toxin product, you need to wait at least 90 days between treatments. Dysport is not habit-forming, and if you decide not to continue, you will gradually return to the look you had before starting treatment.
