Dysport® is a prescription injection that is FDA approved for the temporary improvement in the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (otherwise known as glabellar lines) in patients less than 65 years of age. Dysport® is a purified form of botulinum toxin that has been shown to deliver temporary improvement in moderate to severe frown lines by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity, temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines and reducing the appearance of frown lines.
Frown lines are caused by a number of factors, and not always caused by age.
Although age is a factor, over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, during frowning or squinting, and this repeated movement forms lines between the eyebrows. Dysport® is designed for adults less than 65 years of age who want a prescription injection for the temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
Effective treatment requires one injection into each of five points between and over the eyebrows, two injection points above each eyebrow in the corrugator muscle and one injection point between the eyebrows in the procerus muscle.
A very small needle is used to inject Dysport so it is relatively pain free and no anesthetic is needed. It is recommended that patients wait for a period of 3 to 4 months in between injections.
Pre-treatment, how to prepare:
Very small gauge syringes are used to place product, discomfort or pain is minimal and any redness should subside within a day.
It is recommended that you refrain from lying on your stomach or inverting your body for at least 24 hours. No alcohol (sorry) for 72 hours. Depending on your injection sites, your brow may feel heavier than before for a few days or weeks. This is because the muscles that used to raise your brow are performing the same task, so others try to compensate.
