Dysport is a natural-looking, fast-acting, long-lasting prescription injection proven to help smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, the forehead, and around the eyes – without changing the look or movement of the rest of the face.
Here are 7 things to know about Dysport when deciding if it is right for you.
1. When will I be able to see the results of my treatment?
Results typically appear 2-3 days after treatment.
2. What are the side effects?
While side effects are rare and often minimal, they may include injection site pain and/or swelling, headaches, or eyelid drooping.
3. Is it painful?
Discomfort is often minimal and does not last long. The procedure typically lasts 10 minutes or less, so most patients are out of the office without downtime.
4. Who is the best person to administer Dysport?
Dermatologists are the most highly trained physicians in administering Dysport. While there are providers that offer extremely low or discounted prices, that typically means that the person administering Dysport is not an experienced provider. Dr. Hawley is an expert injector and has an advanced understanding of anatomy and the aging face, so you can feel confident that you will receive the safest and most natural results.
5. Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Yes. Significant muscle activity is stifled, but you can still frown or make a surprised facial expression after treatment.
6. What if I decide to stop receiving Dysport treatments?
If you choose not to continue treatment, frown lines will gradually return to the way they looked before the treatment.
7. Is Dysport only used for people who are over the age of 30?
NOPE! Dysport and Botox are FDA approved for patients 18-65.
People who begin using Dysport in their 20s often find that they maintain a more youthful appearance as they age, compared to those who wait until they are older to begin treatment.
