What is Dysport®?


Dysport® is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Turn back time with this treatment to leave your skin looking younger and rejuvenated.


How do Dysport® injections work?


Dysport® stops the signal from the nerve to the muscle, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions. This will give your face the natural and revitalized look you are seeking.


Who is eligible for Dysport® injections?


You should not receive Dysport® if you are allergic to Dysport® or any of its ingredients, cow’s milk protein, other treatments like Myobloc® or Botox®, or have an infection at the planned injection site. Children should not use Dysport® and neither should women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.


Is Dysport® safe? What are the risks?


Dysport® may cause some initial discomfort during treatment that can continue in the days following treatment. Our doctors here at Clarkston Dermatology will be sure to make your treatment as comfortable and pain-free as possible. As is the case with any dermatological treatment, you may experience side effects, with some of the most common side effects including temporary injection site reactions such as:


  • Headache
  • Injection Site Pain
  • Injection Site Skin Reaction
  • Eyelid Swelling
  • Eyelid Drooping


As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection in the treated area. Be sure to call us as soon as possible if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, or any abnormal sensations or effects, so that we may help you during your recovery period.


Are the Results of Dysport® permanent?


The results from Dysport® are only temporary, but can last up to 4 months.  To maintain your youthful correction you will need to receive treatments every 3-4 months. You’ll be happy to know that treatment can be done in as little as 10 to 20 minutes so you can be ready to go right back to your daily routine.


What are the benefits of Dysport®?


  • There is little to no downtime after injection
  • In clinical trials, the majority of patients had frown lines that improved from scores of “moderate” or “severe” to “none” or “mild”.
  • Results are seen after just one treatment


The biggest benefit to Dysport® treatments of course is the amount of satisfaction you’ll receive from your rejuvenated face.


How much does Dysport® cost?


The cost of Dysport® at Clarkston Dermatology can vary depending on the treatment area and the severity of the wrinkles in that area. The amount of wrinkle relaxer needed will be determined by the area and strength of the muscles being treated. This allows us to cater each treatment to your individual needs and desired results. You’ll be more than happy with the cost after you see the amazing results from our treatments.
