The board-certified plastic surgeons at The Plastic Surgery Group offer Dysport® treatments to help women and men look refreshed and more youthful by softening fine and deeper lines of the forehead and around the eyes. Our younger patients choose Dysport® as a preemptive measure to keep those first wrinkles away. Dysport® treatments are extremely popular because they are safe, quick, and effective.
WHAT IS DYSPORT USED FOR?
Dysport is a prescription injection administered by a licensed healthcare professional to treat moderate to severe frown lines (those wrinkles between the eyebrows).
Medically, it’s a botulinum neurotoxin (abobotulinumtoxinA), an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent. It temporarily prevents specific muscle movements that cause frown lines.
WHAT ARE DYSPORT INJECTIONS?
Administered by a licensed healthcare professional, Dysport is supplied as a single-use, sterile 300-unit vial. The dose of Dysport for the treatment of glabellar lines (frown lines between your eyebrows) is a total of 50 units injected equally among the specific muscles. The dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product that you may have previously used.
HOW DOES DYSPORT WORK?
One injection. Five points.
Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity.
Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions.7 One injection into each of the 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines.
In other words: natural-looking results that look and feel like you.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO ADMINISTER?
Although office visits can vary, the procedure generally takes 10 to 20 minutes.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE DYSPORT TO WORK?
Though results vary, over half of users see improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows within 2-3 days.
HOW LONG DOES DYSPORT LAST?
One treatment of Dysport provides results that may last for up to 5 months.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF DYSPORT?
The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea. For a full list of potential side effects, see HERE.
IS DYSPORT DIFFERENT FROM BOTOX® COSMETIC?
Dysport® and Botox are both made from botulinum toxin type A. All botulinum toxins have the same mechanism of action: blocking the release of acetylcholine (ACh) and preventing the muscles from contracting to maintain the aesthetic effect. However, the dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product that you may have previously used.
DOES DYSPORT OFFER ANY REBATES?
Rebates and treatment discounts are at the discretion of your local healthcare professional or med spa. However, we invite you to join our loyalty program — ASPIRE Galderma Rewards — to earn rewards, bonuses and discounts for any and all Galderma facial aesthetic treatments, including Dysport! Just be sure to ask your healthcare professional if his or her practice is part of the ASPIRE Galderma Rewards program.
