WHAT IS DYSPORT®?
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.
HOW IS DYSPORT® ADMINISTERED?
Dysport® is administered by a physician or qualified healthcare professional who is a trained injector. 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.
Although office visit times vary, the procedure generally takes 10 to 20 minutes. 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 months in between injections.
In clinical studies, Dysport® has been shown to deliver temporary improvement in moderate to severe frown lines, for up to 4 repeat treatments and safety was evaluated in up to 12 repeat treatments. The effect of repeat treatment with Dysport® may be comparable to your first use. Efficacy has been demonstrated to be maintained up to 4 repeat treatments with no change in efficacy response over time.
Dysport® has been shown to provide results that may last up to 4 months!
