As we get older and our skin starts to lose its elasticity, we can end up with a variety of unsightly lines and wrinkles on our faces. This includes glabellar lines, also known as frown lines, which are the little vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows. When you frown and squint, it contracts the glabellar muscles, which can make your frown lines even more noticeable. Fortunately, if you’d like to be rid of your glabellar lines, Dysport could be the solution you need.

What Is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable cosmetic treatment used primarily to reduce glabellar lines and smooth the skin between the eyebrows. Dysport is also effective for treating crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.

How Does Dysport Work?

Dysport contains the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A, which is the same active ingredient found in Botox. When this neurotoxin is injected into the skin, it prevents the facial muscles from communicating with the nerves. That prevents the muscles from contracting, which significantly reduces lines and wrinkles to create smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

Benefits of Dysport

If you have frown lines that you’d like to be rid of, Dysport can offer some or all of the following benefits:

  • Significantly reduced glabellar lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles
  • Smoother, firmer facial skin
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Natural-looking results
  • Temporarily prevents the formation of new wrinkles

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

If you’re interested in trying Dysport, the first step to take is to schedule a quick consultation with one of our medical providers at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery. Your provider will discuss the treatment with you as well as your specific aesthetic goals.

The Dysport procedure is very simple and can be performed right at our facility. First, you will have a topical anesthetic applied to the treatment area to prevent any pain. Then, your injection specialist will use a very fine needle to inject the Dysport into your skin. Overall, the treatment should only take around 20 to 30 minutes to complete, and you should be able to leave right away after it’s finished.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

Are There Any Side Effects?

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

In very rare cases, the neurotoxin in Dysport can spread to other areas of the body, which can cause a serious condition called botulism. Patients who experience any of the following symptoms should seek medical care right away:

  • Vision problems
  • Significant muscle weakness
  • Trouble speaking, breathing, or swallowing
  • Loss of bladder control

How Long Will It Take To See Results After Dysport Treatment?

You should start to notice smoother skin and reduced wrinkles roughly three to four days after your Dysport treatment. On average, the results of Dysport will last for three to four months before they start to fade.
