Prescription Dysport is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines
without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
Dysport is a formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvement in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport may be comparable to your first use.
How Dysport Works
With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and over the eyebrows, 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. You should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days.
Treatment with prescription Dysport can temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines. Treatment generally takes just 10 to 20 minutes.
The most common side effects of Dysport treatment 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. You should wait at least 90 days between Dysport treatments.
Clinically proven results with 1 treatment
In 3 clinical studies of people whose frown lines were rated “moderate” or “severe” by a doctor before their treatment with Dysport*:
30 days after treatment, the majority (88%, 85%, and 86% in each of the 3 studies) had their frown lines rated by a doctor as “mild” or “moderate” at maximum frown. For example, a patient could improve from “severe” to “moderate” or from “moderate” to “mild”.
30 days after treatment, the majority (74%, 79%, and 82% in each of the 3 studies) rated their own frown lines as “mild” or “moderate” at maximum frown. For example, a patient could improve from “severe” to “moderate” or from “moderate” to “mild”.
