What is Dysport? 

Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. Dysport is formulated with abo botulinum toxin type A and is a long-lasting treatment that will correct your frown lines for up to five months. This fast-acting treatment is injected into the muscles to block their nerve signals. This can minimize wrinkles by decreasing muscle activity in your areas of insecurity.  

Who is a Candidate for Dysport? 

Candidates for Dysport include those with aesthetic concerns related to the appearance of wrinkles in between their eyebrows. Candidates for Dysport must be nonsmokers, have generally good health, and have realistic expectations of what they can do.  

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for Dysport is through a private consultation with one of our educated injectors at Coastal Medical Aesthetics. During the consultation, our staff will be able to inform you what areas would most benefit from Dysport and how many units you would need to achieve maximum results.  Everyone is different so we tailor to your needs. 

The Dysport Treatment 

During your Dysport treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the thoroughly cleansed treatment area. You will then wait a few minutes for the numbing cream to work its magic before your injection begins. After the numbing cream is fully activated, your expert injector will meticulously inject your treatment areas with the Dysport treatment. The number of units that you require will be based on the severity of the lines that you have. Dysport injection appointments take approximately 15 minutes or less. 

Dysport Recovery and Results 

Recovery after your Dysport treatment is mild, calling for zero downtime. This will allow you to seamlessly resume your daily schedule. It is crucial that you do not rub or massage any treatment areas that have been injected because this can cause the product to migrate out of the treatment area, potentially causing facial weakness or droopiness. Side effects that you may experience include temporary bruising, swelling, itchiness, and redness. You may notice your results begin to emerge after two days, but it can take up to one week for your full results to settle in. To maintain your texture-free skin, you can schedule regular appointments as you see needed.
