ABOUT DYSPORT® INJECTABLE:
Dysport® is a protein extracted from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and was initially used for treatment of motor function disorders and various kinds of muscular spasms including Cerebral Palsy. After further development it was proven effective for neuromuscular disorders and is licensed for that usage in over 60 countries. It was first developed in the United Kingdom in the early 1990’s to successfully treat a number of neurological and ophthalmic conditions. New Zealand eye specialists and neurologists have used it for many years to treat nervous tics and facial/neck muscle spasms with wonderful results. Dysport has been in use in over 60 countries for nearly two decades for many medical and therapeutic uses – and for facial wrinkle treatments after additional development for that purpose. It was approved in 2008 for use in the United States.
Dysport® is a simple injection. The product is injected directly into the facial muscles underlying the frown lines. It is virtually painless and requires no local anesthetic. Treatment takes approximately 10 minutes. Results are seen in 1-2 days as your muscles begin to relax without affecting your ability to blink, raise your eyebrows or look natural.
DYSPORT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What Can Dysport® Do For You?
As we live, we laugh, frown, concentrate and squint causing facial muscles to contract and skin creases to form. Aging causes loss of skin elasticity and creases or grooves become more deeply etched into the face causing wrinkles to form. These changes encourage an angry, worried, stressed appearance whether we feel that way or not. Dysport® works by temporarily relaxing the “frown muscles” and over time these muscles stop frowning and squinting. This allows facial wrinkles, creases and grooves to smooth out and keeps you looking years younger.
What Is Dysport®?
Dysport is an extracted protein taken from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is safe and effective and has been in use for decades in over 60 countries for medical and therapeutic uses and in over 23 countries specifically for wrinkle treatment.
How Is Dysport® Used?
Dysport® is a simple injection injected directly into the facial muscles underlying the frown lines. It usually takes 3-5 small injections between the eyebrows for an effective treatment. It is virtually painless and requires no local anesthetic. Treatment takes approximately 10 minutes. Results are seen soon as muscles begin to relax without affecting your ability to blink, raise your eyebrows or look natural.
How Does Dysport® Differ From Botox® Cosmetic?
Like Botox, Dysport is an injectable form of botulinum toxin type A. Small amounts, when injected, relax the muscles used to make facial espressions. Dysport® and Botox® are commonly referred to as “twins or first cousins” because of their similarities.
Who Can Benefit From Dysport®?
All men and women who are at least 18 years of age with deeply etched lines who want to erase years from their face, with longer lasting results – and who want to look younger, more relaxed, more refreshed - naturally.
What Are The Side Effects From Dysport® Injections?
All injectables carry small risks – Dysport is no different. Some patients may experience swelling, soreness and bruising at the injection site. This is normal and usually resolves in a few days. Some people experience a minor headache that may last for a few hours. In rare cases, ptosis (drooping of the eyelid) may occur but resolves in time and is an assumed risk of the procedure. A skin rash or flu-like reaction has rarely occurred. Dysport is not recommended for use during pregnancy, lactation or by people with neuromuscular disease.
