Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription injection used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is FDA-approved to treat the glabellar area (frown lines). Dysport® injections help to smooth out your wrinkles without changing the look and movement of the rest of your face. Dysport® injections reduce the muscle activity and prevent the contraction of the treated muscles. The lines are minimized, not your expressions! Improvement can be seen in 2-3 days after treatment and can last up to 4 months.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How does Dysport® work?
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.
How long does it take for Dysport® to work?
Though results vary, there is typically a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows within 2-3 days.
How long does Dysport® last?
One treatment of Dysport® can last for up to 4 months, so the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport® may be comparable to the first use.
How often can I get injections of Dysport®?
You should wait at least 90 days between Dysport® treatments. The safety of Dysport® has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments. Clinical studies demonstrated continued efficacy with up to four repeated treatments.
What are the side effects of Dysport®?
The most common side effects 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.
