- Dysport is abobotulinumtoxinA, manufactured by Galderma Laboratories, and is injected into actively animating muscles in areas of the face and neck that cause wrinkles when creased over and over.
- Dysport is supplied in 300 units/vial but is given in the same liquid quantities as Botox.
- Most common areas treated are the forehead, frown lines, crow’s feet, chin dimpling, and platysma bands
- Onset of muscle relaxation usually begins at 2-3 days and results are temporary, lasting up to 4 months.
- Contraindicated in pregnant or lactating women
- If you have taken aspirin, ibuprofen, supplemental Omega-3 or Vitamin E up to two weeks before treatment, you will have an increased risk of bruising at an injection site.
- Even if you have NOT taken these medications, there is always the possibility of bruising.
- If you are used to holding up your eyebrows as a way of lifting lids, treatment of the forehead may make your lids feel “heavy” because you can’t raise your brows. This will be discussed during evaluation.
- Do not massage areas treated with Dysport as this can spread the product to unwanted areas
