What is Dysport?
Prescription Dysport is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age.
Dysport is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport may be comparable to your first use.*
*In clinical trials, the efficacy of Dysport was studied in a total of 376 patients and was demonstrated with up to 4 repeated treatments. The safety of Dysport has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments.
How does Dysport work?
With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows, Dysport stops the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. *
Injection sites for Dysport
The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. *
You should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days. *
No downtime: With Dysport, there is little to no downtime after injection. Ask your doctor about any precautions you should take after your treatment. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities. Repeatable results: In clinical trials, the efficacy of Dysport was demonstrated with up to 4 repeated treatments. You should wait at least 90 days between treatments. The safety of Dysport has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments. *
Worldwide experience: Dysport is used for aesthetic purposes in 36 countries. In U.S. clinical trials, Dysport safety was studied in more than 2400 aesthetic patients. A total of 376 patients were studied for efficacy of the product. *
Though approved in the United States in April 2009, Dysport has a history of use in other countries since 1991. First approved for aesthetic use outside the U.S. in 2001, Dysport has steadily gained in popularity around the world. Today Dysport is marketed and sold for aesthetic use in 36 countries (as of October 2009). With its approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, you, too, may join others worldwide who have been treated with Dysport. In U.S. clinical studies the most common side effects were nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea. In some cases, Dysport may cause serious side effects, such as swallowing or breathing problems, that may be life threatening. For more information on possible side effects of Dysport, talk to your healthcare professional. *
