Over time, the muscles repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
Dysport San Diego
Dysport is an injectable that is used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe wrinkles of the brow (frown lines), eyes (crow’s feet), and lines around the mouth without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles will still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. Depending on the area treated, results may last up to 4 months.
Dysport can last up to four months. It’s important to note that you should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days.
Though approved in the United States for aesthetic use in April 2009, Dysport has a history of use in other countries since 1991. Outside the U.S., it was first approved for aesthetic use in 2001.
Dysport injections have been used safely and effectively for years to treat many ophthalmologic and neurological disorders. However, while rare some side effects can and occur. The most common side effects are temporary soreness or mild bruising around the injection site. Some people may experience a slight headache that lasts for several hours after treatment; it is safe to take a mild pain killer to relieve this. In a very small percentage of cases there can be a complication called “ptosis” (a drooping eyelid) which may last a few days or up to 4 weeks. Ptosis is not considered to be a normal side effect and is normally due to injector error or lack of injector experience.
