There are numerous factors to consider before committing to any cosmetic treatment. Below is a list of frequently asked questions associated with Dysport:
How does Dysport work?
Dysport is administered through injections with a very fine needle after the application of a topical numbing cream. The entire procedure is typically performed in twenty minutes or less in Dr. Shell’s office. Once injected, the botulinum toxin in Dysport blocks the transmission of nerve impulses in the treated area, temporarily weakening the facial muscles.
What can I expect during recovery?
You should be able to resume normal routines such as work and social activity immediately following treatment with Dysport. You may experience some mild and temporary side effects such as bruising, redness or pain at the injection site. The results of your treatment will start to appear gradually, with full results after two weeks.
Are the results permanent?
The results of Dysport treatment will not be permanent. On average, patients can anticipate a reduction of wrinkles lasting up to four months. In order to maintain your new look, you will need to schedule routine touch-up appointments with Dr. Shell every few months.
Are there any side effects associated with Dysport?
Side effects associated with Dysport are generally mild, and Dr. Shell will discuss all of the potential side effects with you prior to your procedure. The most common side effects include nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain or redness, eyelid swelling or drooping, and nausea.
