What is Dysport?
Dysport is a prescription injection, similar to Botox. When injected, it blocks the nerve signals to the muscle. This means that the muscle function will temporarily be reduced and the muscles that cause frown lines won’t be able to contract. Unlike Botox, this is injected in specific locations between and above your eyebrows. It’s proven to work, is FDA-approved, and had been in clinical use for 25 years.
What is the Process for Getting Dysport?
Dysport injections are extremely simple and have no downtime. This is a procedure you could get over your lunch hour if you choose. Dr. Joseph Guarino simply injects Dysport into the muscle between and above your eyebrows. The pain is minimal and we offer numbing cream to make sure you’re kept comfortable
Before getting the procedure, Dr. Guarino might recommend that you avoid certain things. For instance, you shouldn’t drink alcohol for a week before the procedure or take aspirin or anti-inflammatory medicines for two weeks before. This is to minimize any bruising or bleeding from the injection. Discuss any prescription medications with your primary care doctor before you stop taking any of those.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for Dysport?
Before scheduling Dysport treatment, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Guarino. He’ll take a look at the condition of your skin, as well as your medical conditions and history. Generally, this treatment is recommended for those under the age of 65 who are looking to eliminate wrinkles and lines between the eyebrows.
People with certain conditions won’t be able to get treatment with Dysport. If you’re allergic to things like Botox or cow’s milk protein, have a neurological disease, or are pregnant or breastfeeding. Dysport is typically active for around four months, so you also won’t be able to be pregnant or breastfeeding during this time.
Are There Side Effects to Dysport?
The main side effects of Dysport involve the injection site. You might notice pain, swelling, or inflammation during the next couple of days after the injection. Other side effects include headaches and irritation of your nose and throat. If you have any side effects other than these, or severe versions of these, it’s important that you seek medical attention right away.
