Frown lines plague many men and women and can settle in as early as your 20s. Dysport® is an injectable treatment that addresses these glabellar lines found between your eyebrows without making you appear frozen. Also known as “11’s,” frown lines develop due to repeated muscle contractions. Dysport® smoothens these moderate to severe wrinkles by reducing the movement of specific facial muscles without affecting the overall look of your face.
If you’re interested in Dysport® or another injectable, please contact North Texas Plastic Surgery in Dallas at (817) 416-8080 to schedule your consultation or ask questions. Our plastic surgery and medical spa center serves patients in surrounding areas of Fort Worth, Texas.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport® is a non-invasive treatment that can minimize frown lines without limiting your ability to make facial expressions. This injectable provides these youthful results because it contains abobotulinumtoxinA. Dysport® is in the same class of injectables as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin®, which are neuromodulators that contain forms of botulinum toxin. This wrinkle treatment is also used to treat certain neurological conditions that cause muscle spasms.
Most men and women who choose Dysport® to address their frown lines see results within 2-3 days of their injection, with lasting improvement for up to four months. Follow up Dysport® treatments are necessary to maintain your results. In clinical trials, 97 percent of patients said they would do it again for the natural-looking results, and studies also found that over 80 percent of patients had a successful reduction in wrinkle appearance.
The procedure itself involves one injection into five points above and between the eyebrows where glabellar lines form due to repeated muscle activity. Dysport® treatments take just 10-20 minutes and are performed at North Texas Plastic Surgery, typically by our Nurse Injector who specializes in dermal fillers and neuromodulator injectables.
Dysport® works well for adults under the age of 65 and is approved to treat facial lines and neurological concerns in 69 countries, including the United States. However, this injectable should not be used if you’ve had an allergic reaction to a product with botulinum toxins, cow’s milk protein, have a skin infection at the injection site or are otherwise allergic to any ingredients contained in Dysport.
The most common side effects found in clinical trials were a headache, injection site pain or skin reaction, nose and throat irritation, eyelid swelling or drooping, nausea, sinus inflammation, and upper respiratory tract infection.
We offer a variety of injectables at our Southlake, Plano, and Dallas offices including the Juvéderm™ Family, Restylane, BOTOX®, Brotox®, and Jeuveau™. Each injectable is designed to treat specific areas of the face, such as restoring volume to the cheeks, lip enhancement, and addressing crow’s feet.
