Dysport®: Erasing frown lines, not your expressions
“Expression lines” between the brows can make thoughtful people who contemplate look like angry people who fret and worry.
If you do a lot of thinking, squinting at screens, or have frequent animated conversations, you may have “expression lines” between your eyebrows. Do not let these brow-furrowing, deep wrinkles give people the wrong impression of your personality and mood!
If you want fewer expression lines, but would like to keep your expressions, Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) can help.
Dysport® is a prescription injectable that helps improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. This treatment reduces the appearance and development of wrinkles without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face.
By smoothing the wrinkles between your brows, you can look younger, less anxious and more confident.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a prescription injectable that treats wrinkles and frown lines by reducing muscle activity in the brow area. It is one of the many types of botulinum toxin products that are used to treat medical conditions and are used for cosmetic improvements.
By targeting specific, wrinkle-inducing muscles, this treatment gives you a more confident, natural, relaxed look without a "frozen" face.
What issues are treatable with Dysport®?
Wrinkles and frown lines are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which means they can even develop in younger adults. Dysport® is explicitly designed to treat frown lines or "11" wrinkles between the eyebrows. People of all ages furrow their brows, and these wrinkles can appear at any age. Treatment can not only improve the appearance of existing lines, but it can also prevent wrinkles from becoming more profound.
What can I expect during Dysport® treatment?
A Dysport® treatment takes only 10 to 20 minutes. Treatment usually includes injections at five points between and above the eyebrows. The localized injections mean the rest of your face is unaffected and continues to move naturally. There is little downtime after treatment, and most people can immediately return to their daily routine.
How long do the results of Dysport® last?
Most people see improvement in just two to three days after treatment. The full effect lasts for up to four months. Patients can repeat the treatment as needed with their provider's approval to maintain or re-up results.
Is Dysport® safe?
Providers have used Dysport® to treat various medical and cosmetic issues, including facial wrinkles, for more than 25 years. It is approved for use in 69 countries. And 97 percent of users say they would use the treatment again.
Who is not the right candidate for Dysport®?
You will have a consultation at Harmony Healing before your treatment to discuss your goals and the potential risks. We will go over your medical history and medications, including previous facial surgery, previous botulinum toxin treatments and allergies.
People who have difficulty swallowing, are pregnant or breastfeeding or who have infections near the injection sites should not use Dysport®.
Scarring and unusually thick or oily skin can also interfere with the effectiveness of Dysport®.
Does Dysport® have any side effects?
Common side effects of Dysport® include headache, injection site pain, throat and nose irritation, eyelid swelling or drooping and nausea. In rare cases, Dysport® can cause difficulty breathing or swallowing. We will go over a complete list of risks and side effects during your treatment consultation.
