Dysport® is an FDA-approved anti-aging treatment that temporarily weakens or paralyzes key face muscles to minimize or reverse wrinkle formation. A single injection can provide smooth skin results right after the treatment and can last for up to four months. 

While Dysport® and other aesthetic treatments like Botox® have the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin, they differ in dosage and target different face and neck areas. 

Dysport® helps reduce the appearance of the glabellar lines, which are the vertical wrinkles that start to form on your forehead during early adulthood. As we age, these tend to become more prominent when squinting or frowning because of decreased elasticity. 

Besides improving the appearance of existing wrinkles, Dysport® also helps prevent the development of wrinkles in the first place. When applied in wrinkle-prone areas, such as between the eyebrows and forehead, it can help relax the repetitive muscle movements on the face, avoiding creases. 

Although Dysport® helps temporarily paralyze facial muscles to avoid wrinkles, your facial expression remains as natural as always. At PhySlim, our cutting-edge aesthetic treatments can help you achieve a wrinkle-free, more youthful appearance without ever sacrificing your grin. 

What to Expect During Your Dysport® Procedure with PhySlim

All our facial aesthetic treatments are performed in the office by our qualified physicians. Once you arrive at our clinic, we will follow the next steps:

1. Preparing for Your Dysport® Procedure

To make sure Dysport® is the right treatment for you, we will conduct a series of medical evaluations, including reviewing your medical history and physical health. We will also ask you beforehand to stop taking certain medications, such as allergy medications, blood thinners, sleep aids, or muscle relaxers. 

Once this is done, we will start developing your treatment plan, where we will identify the specific areas where Dysport® will be applied to your body. 

2. During Your Procedure

As the procedure begins, your doctor will start by applying a small amount of topical anesthetic to prevent pain to the injection site. The Dysport® injection itself does not take more than 10 minutes, and you’ll be able to leave immediately after it’s been administered. 

You’ll be provided with clear follow-up instructions you are expected to follow as stated to prevent any undesired effects. This includes a recommended timeline for the reapplication of Dysport® in a few months’ time.

3. After Your Dysport® Procedure

After your Dysport® procedure, you’ll be able to leave home with no downtime needed. However, try to avoid any strenuous activities for the rest of the day and wait for at least two hours before engaging in any physical activity. Results will become visible as soon as two days after treatment and usually last up to four months. 

To maintain them as much as possible, avoid rubbing the side of the injection and keep in touch with our providers to schedule your next Dysport® appointment. 

Dysport® Side Effects

Although Dysport® is an effective and FDA-approved aging treatment, there are some side effects that could appear after the injection has been administered. 

These are usually mild and tend to disappear after a while without the need for medical supervision:

  • Headache
  • Pain at the injection site
  • Mild allergic reaction, such as a rash or hive 
  • Sinus issues
  • Sore throat
  • Eyelid swelling
  • Upper respiratory tract infection
  • Nausea

If these symptoms do not subside within a couple of days or suddenly worsen, don’t hesitate to call us right away for guidance

To avoid the risk of suffering any potentially dangerous side effects from Dysport® or any other facial treatment, always make sure your doctor has the right qualifications. 

At PhySlim, all our physicians and medical care providers have extensive experience helping patients restore their confidence through anti-aging and aesthetic treatments. When you come into our clinic, we will make sure to develop a personalized cosmetic treatment plan where your needs and health are always prioritized.
