If you are looking for a neuromodulator treatment option that will help minimize the appearance of frown lines, getting to know what Dysport is will help you make an informed decision. If you are unsure if Dysport is the ideal neuromodulator for your specific needs, the team from Bottle Service would be more than happy to answer any questions you have, as well as to help you select the best treatment option.

What is Dysport and Where can it be Injected?

Similar to Botox, Dysport is a type of neuromodulator that can be injected into specific muscles in the face to help soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Dysport is primarily used to treat fine lines in the glabella (the area between the eyebrows) that extend vertically toward the forehead.

How Does Dysport Work?

Dysport injections work by preventing neurotransmitters from sending nerve signals to the facial muscles in the glabella that can cause wrinkles, creating a temporary paralysis that removes the muscles ability to contract and form wrinkles. This type of neuromodulator can be a great treatment option for people who are already suffering from frown lines, as well as for people who are looking to prevent the appearance of early onset glabella wrinkles. The effects of Dysport injections can last anywhere from three to six months, depending on how your body breaks it down.

Who is Eligible for Dysport Treatments?

While Dysport can help treat glabella wrinkles or frown lines, it is important to note that this type of neuromodulator is only recommended for people who have moderate to severe cases. A specialist will be able to help you determine if you are a good candidate for Dysport injections.

You may not be a good candidate for Dysport if you:

  • Are over 65 years old
  • Are allergic to the protein from cow milk
  • Have inflammation, irritation, or an infection in the area being treated
  • Have deep and prominent facial scars
  • Have had prior surgical work done on your face
  • Are on certain medications

If you are considered to be a good candidate, the entire procedure can usually be completed within a 30-minute timeframe. Before injecting the neuromodulator, the injection specialist will apply a mild topical numbing cream to the areas that are going to be injected in order to minimize any pain felt during the treatment. Dysport injections do not require any downtime after the procedure.
