Halifax DYSPORT® Services
Prescription Dysport® is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. Get to know more about Dysport® , including how it works and what to understand before you start treatment.
How Dysport® works
Over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. But, with just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport® blocks 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
For up to four entire months, you could have the look that you love. Dysport® works to block the signal from the nerve to the muscles, resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. It’s important to note that you should not be treated with Dysport® more frequently than every 90 days.
A step-by-step guide to Dysport® treatment:
When considering any kind of aesthetic treatment, it’s important to understand as much as possible about the procedure, and what you can expect from the results. This useful guide can help you learn more about the Dysport® treatment process, before you discuss it with your doctor.
In general, here’s what you can expect when receiving Dysport® treatments:
1. The Dysport® treatment consultation
Discuss your expectations with your doctor and whether you have any health conditions or allergies that could interfere with your treatment. It’s your appointment, so don’t hesitate to ask your doctor questions.
2. The Dysport® treatment
Effective treatment requires 1 injection into each of 5 points between and over the eyebrows. Although office visit times vary, the procedure generally takes 10 to 20 minutes. Your healthcare professional will determine the exact placement of each injection to get results that are right for you.
3. After your Dysport® treatment
Ask your doctor about any precautions you should take after 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.
To maintain your improvements, you should discuss a treatment schedule with your doctor. As with any botulinum toxin product, you should wait at least 90 days between treatments.
