Communication is the most critical aspect of patient care. Results must match expectations. Without excellent communication, expectations cannot be matched. I spend a lot of time with my patients trying to determine what is the best operation for personal success and achievement of patient goals.
What is Dysport®(abobotulinumtoxinA) for Injection?
On the market for 10 years, Dysport is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for the temporary improvement ofthe appearance of moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines) between the eyebrows in adults less than 65 years of age. Dysport is a neuromodulator, an injection of a small amount of botulinum toxin that treats frown lines when injected into underlying muscle, causing it to relax and gradually smooth out the appearance of the frown lines between the eyebrows. Frown lines are not just caused by aging, but from constant repetitive movements and muscle contractions, which means they can develop in younger adults too.If you’re starting to notice frown lines that are bothering you, it might be time to ask your specialist about Dysport.
How can I prepare for my Treatment?
More than 400,000 unique patients are treated with Dysport each year in the U.S., so know that you’re not alone inseeking treatment. Take the time to find a qualified specialist in your area that you feel comfortable with. It is important to see a specialist who has experience administering Dysport and knowledge of facial anatomy so you can get natural-looking results.
Don’t be afraid to ask your specialist questions! Get on the same page with your specialist about the look that you are trying to achieve—it’s important that you have the same goals in mind.
What can I Expect during my Treatment?
Dysport is a quick (10-20 minute) procedure with minimal downtime, using a relatively small needle.
During treatment, you will receive an injection into eachof the five points between and over the eyebrows, two injection points above each eyebrow in the corrugator muscle and one injection point between the eyebrowsin the procerus muscle.
Ask your specialist about any precautions you should take after treatment. The most common side effects to be aware of after treatment are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain and skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, sinus inflammation and nausea.
What Results will I See?
In Dysport clinical studies, more than half of users saw an improvement in their frown lines in just 2-3 days.
