Dysport Eyebrow Line Procedure
What is Dysport®?
Dysport, abobotulinumtoxin A, is an injection that is FDA approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of vertical lines between the eyebrows in people under age 65. The ingredient in Dysport, a form of the botulinum toxin, blocks the nerve signal to the muscles in the area between the eyebrows. The muscles are not able to contract, and the vertical lines, also known as “11’s,” that appear between the brows are diminished.
Treatment with Dysport typically takes 20 minutes or less. The surgeon injects Dysport into five spots between the brows. Since the injection is only placed in the brow area, other areas of the face are not affected and you will not lose your facial expression or the ability to move other parts of your face. The surgeons at the Glasgold Group use Dysport® in New Jersey on men and women alike.
How Long Does Dysport Last and Are There Side Effects?
The results from Dysport typically last about four months, though some people might see longer-lasting results. Most people see initial results within a few days. While you can receive additional injections, you should wait at least 90 days before going for another treatment.
Common side effects from Dysport include irritation at the site of the injection, including redness, bruising and swelling. Some people also experience dry mouth and headaches. More serious side effects can occur and should be reported to your physician. Serious side effects include drooping of the eyelid, double or blurred vision, breathing and swallowing problems and all-over muscle weakness.
If you are allergic to cow’s milk protein or have had an allergic reaction to botulinum toxin in the past, you shouldn’t use Dysport®.
Most patients don’t experience side effects and are able to benefit from the effects of Dysport®.
