Dysport: What Is It?

Dysport is an injectable, natural-looking, fast-acting, and long-lasting that smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. One of the best features about this injectable is that it doesn’t change the rest of your face’s look or movement. 

This cosmetic procedure has been approved in 69 countries and has more than twenty-five years of clinical experience worldwide. 

Dysport is a wrinkle treatment that uses a type of botulinum toxin injected under the skin to paralyze the selected area. 

This procedure is usually only used to treat the glabellar lines, also known as the frown lines, located between the eyebrows. 

Dysport’s main job is to relax the muscles under the skin, so the lines become smoother. Besides, the injections stop the creation of wrinkles as they restrict facial muscle movements. 

Please note that this cosmetic treatment is recommended to treat moderate to severe cases of wrinkles only and should be applied to people under the age of 65. 

Dysport has also been used to treat muscle spasms linked with particular neurological conditions. 

What To Expect During The Procedure?

Dysport’s main job is to treat glabellar wrinkles, and it’s not recommended for mild lines. It’s essential to consult a professional to determine if you’re the right candidate for this treatment, as it will depend on the type of wrinkles you have. 

If you’re the right candidate for Dysport, the procedure is done at the doctor’s office. The appointment will last less than an hour, and there’s no hospitalization required. You can leave immediately after the procedure is concluded. 

The procedure is almost pain-free as the doctor will apply a mild anesthetic before the injections. Usually, the doctor injects 0.05 milliliters of Dysport to treat the frown line, divided into five portions around the eyebrows and forehead. 

After the procedure, you can expect to see effects within a couple of days. You’ll need to repeat the treatment after four months. 

Dysport is a safe treatment, but always make sure to do it in a professional clinic. Keep in mind there are some minor side effects, such as:

  • Swelling around the eyelids
  • Minor pain around the treated area
  • Headaches
  • Irritation
  • Rash

These minor side effects should be gone after a couple of days if they don’t consult your doctor. 

Finally, please note that if you have milk allergies or take some medication for muscle spasms, you might not be the right candidate and if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
