Though approved in the United States for aesthetic use in April 2009, Dysport has a history of use in other countries since 1991. It was first approved for use in 2001.
The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea. In some cases, Dysport may cause serious, potentially fatal side effects (as mentioned above).
Tell your provider about all your medical conditions, including:
Dysport injections are a 10-20 minute in-office treatment at our Pleasant Grove, Utah location.
With just one injection into each of the five points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport stops the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
You should wait at least 90 days between Dysport treatments. The safety of Dysport has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments. Clinical studies demonstrated continued efficacy with up to four repeated treatments.
Tell your provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins and herbal and other natural products. Using Dysport with certain other medicines may cause serious side effects. Do not start any new medicines while taking Dysport without talking to your doctor first.
Especially tell your doctor if any of the following applies:
Dysport may cause loss of strength or general muscle weakness, blurred vision, or drooping eyelids within hours to weeks of taking Dysport. If this occurs, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other strenuous and/or dangerous activities.
