What is Dysport?

Dysport in McAllen, TX

Are you sick and tired of looking so tired? Perhaps you’ve considered a facelift to tackle those tough wrinkles your skin care cream won’t help, but have opted against it because it just doesn’t fit your needs. Enter Dysport.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is an incredibly effective prescription injection designed to specifically target those tough lines between your eyebrows that add years to your age. This injection is considered safe for adults under 65 years of age.

Dysport works on relaxing the lines, so surrounding muscles are unaffected and allow you to express yourself just as you always do. Your unique expressions stay and the unwanted lines go away.

Who is Dysport good for?

Dysport is ideal for those who want a more natural, soft look to their face. The stiff look often associated with other options is not something you’ll find with Dysport. As a result, 97% of people who get Dysport injections say they would do it again.

How does Dysport work?

Dysport is a single injection placed in five different sites between and above your eyebrows. The injection into these sites prevents muscle contraction, so wrinkles can’t form, but still allow you to express yourself through your other facial muscles.

What are the side effects of Dysport?

Every person responds differently to drugs, however, the most common side effects include:

  • nose and throat irritation
  • headache
  • injection site pain
  • injection site skin reaction
  • upper respiratory tract infection
  • eyelid swelling
  • eyelid drooping
  • sinus inflammation
  • nausea

How long does this procedure take?

The Dysport injection process is typically no more than 20 minutes and patients can expect to see results within two to three days. These results usually last about four months and patients can see the same results in subsequent injections.

Is Dysport for me?

Dysport is safe for adults up to 65 years of age, however, those who are allergic to cow’s milk, have already had a facial surgery (particularly facial reconstructive surgery), have thick or oily skin, deep scarring, or wrinkles so deep they can’t be smoother by spreading apart are likely not candidates.
