What is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable cosmetic treatment used to eliminate glabellar lines. Utilizing the same active ingredient as Botox, Dysport effectively smooths the skin and dramatically reduces signs of aging.

How Does Dysport Work?

Dysport is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin type A. When this neurotoxin is injected beneath the skin, it prevents the facial muscles from contracting. The skin becomes significantly smoother as these muscles relax, naturally reducing wrinkles and facial lines.

Benefits of Dysport

Dysport can provide all of the following benefits for anyone looking to achieve a more youthful facial appearance:

  • Greatly reduced glabellar lines
  • Smoother, more youthful facial skin
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Fast, natural-looking results
  • Quick procedure

Am I a Candidate for Dysport?

If you’re an adult searching for a non-invasive way to eliminate your frown lines, you could be a good candidate for Dysport. Ideal candidates for the treatment should meet the following requirements:

  • Be in generally good physical health
  • Have moderate to severe glabellar lines that you’d like reduced
  • Have reasonable expectations
  • Have no allergies to any of Dysport’s ingredients
  • Be free of skin infections around the treatment area
  • Not be pregnant or breastfeeding

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

If you think Dysport treatment may be right for you, the first step will be a quick consultation with one of our specialists at HK Plastic Surgery & MedSpa. They will discuss the treatment with you and ask you about your goals for the procedure. Our team may also take photos of your face, and we’ll need to know about any allergies and medications you’re taking.

The treatment itself will be quick and easy. First, your injection specialist will apply a topical anesthetic to the target area to prevent any pain during the procedure. Next, they will use a very fine needle to inject the Dysport beneath the skin. In total, the treatment will only take between 15 and 30 minutes, and you’ll be able to leave the office immediately afterward.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

One of the great things about Dysport treatment is that there’s no recovery downtime necessary. You will need to avoid rubbing the injection sites for a couple of days, but you’ll be fine to jump right back into your normal routine.

How Long Will It Take To See Results After Dysport?

Most patients start to see results within a few days after Dysport treatment, but it usually takes one to two weeks for the full effects to become visible. Typically, the treatment results can last up to four months.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Dysport has been known to cause certain side effects in some patients, most of which are minor:

  • Injection site pain
  • Injection site skin reaction
  • Headaches
  • Upper respiratory infection
  • Eyelid swelling or drooping
  • Sore throat
  • Nausea

In rare cases, the neurotoxin in Dysport can be transported to other areas of your body, which can cause a serious condition called botulism.
