Your facial muscles contract whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate, or squint into the sun, and your skin creases. As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity, and those creases deepen into lines that become permanently etched on your face. Frown lines between your eyes can become particularly noticeable at a relatively young age, making you look angry or worried even when you’re not.
By temporarily immobilizing the muscles you use to frown, Dysport can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. The lasting effect of treatment with Dysport can differ between individuals, after which further courses of treatment may be necessary. Speak with one of our specialists about the results you can expect with Dysport.
Dysport is a protein extracted from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The protein was initially used for the treatment of motor disorders and various kinds of involuntary muscular spasms, including cerebral palsy. It was further developed to treat a wide variety of neuromuscular disorders, for which it is licensed in over 60 countries.
Tiny amounts of Dysport are injected directly into the facial muscles underlying the frown lines. It usually takes three to five small, almost painless injections between the eyebrows for an effective treatment. No local anesthetic is usually required, but if you are concerned your doctor can numb the skin over the area before injecting. You can expect treatment to take around 10-20 minutes.
Over the next few days, the muscles gradually relax. You probably won’t notice it happening – you’ll become aware that you can’t contract your frown muscles. But because you can still blink normally and raise your eyebrows, you will not look unnatural. Rather, you can enjoy a more youthful appearance while maintaining a natural expression.
Deeply etched frown lines affect not just your appearance but also your self-esteem and even your career choice. Dysport can help you look younger, more relaxed, and in control.
Many people with frown lines can benefit from Dysport – and it can work as well for men as it does for women. Many men are already experiencing the benefits of a younger, more relaxed-looking appearance that Dysport can provide. Discuss with your specialist about the benefits of Dysport for you.
Treatments can cause unwanted effects but not very often. The most common side effects are temporary soreness or mild bruising around the injection site. Some people may experience a slight headache that lasts several hours after treatment; taking a mild painkiller is safe 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. Rarely, an allergic reaction can cause a skin rash or “flu-like” symptoms. Tell your doctor if you experience any troublesome side effects.
You should not have Dysport treatment while pregnant or breastfeeding or at all if you have a neuromuscular disease.
