Take control of your frown lines between the eyebrows

Before you talk to your doctor about Dysport, learn what you can expect from the treatment process and get topics to discuss.

Everything you need to know before getting Dysport

Every time you frown, every time you show concern or even squint, you're contracting muscles in your face. If you start to notice those frown lines between your eyebrows and they’re bothering you, then it might be worth asking your specialist if Dysport is right for you. Here are the most common questions patients have.

Dysport treatment process

What to expect*

When considering any kind of treatment, it's important to understand as much as possible about the procedure. Here’s a general step-by-step guide to help you before, during and after your Dysport procedure.

  1. Consultation
    Once you find your physician, discuss with your doctor your expectations 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. Treatment
    Effective treatment requires one injection into each of five points between and above 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. Post-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 one or more of these happen, do not drive a car, operate machinery or do other dangerous activities.

    There should be little to no down time after your treatment. More than half of reported users saw improvement 2-3 days after treatment,1-3 and results may last up to 4 months.§ Results of repeat treatments may be comparable to your first use.

  4. Follow-up

    To maintain your improvements, you should wait to discuss a treatment schedule with your doctor. As with any botulinum toxin product, you need to wait at least 90 days between treatments. Dysport is not habit-forming, and if you decide not to continue, you will gradually return to the look you had before starting treatment.

*Although the experience described is typical, the general routine at your doctor's office may differ, and individual results may vary.

The median time to onset of response was 3 days in GL-1 (Dysport 55/105 [52%], Placebo 3/53 [6%] and GL-2 (Dysport 36/71 [51%], Placebo 9/71 [13%]), and 2 days in GL-3 (Dysport 110/200 [55%], Placebo 4/100 [4%]).1-3

§GL-1 and GL-3 evaluated subjects for at least 150 days following treatment. Based on investigator assessment, response was maintained for up to 4 months in both GL-1 (Dysport 24/105 [23%], Placebo 2/53 [4%]) and GL-3 (Dysport 58/200 [29%], Placebo 1/100 [1%]).2-4

Important Safety Information

What is the most important information you should know about Dysport?

Spread of Toxin Effects: In some cases, the effects of Dysport and all botulinum toxin products may affect areas of the body away from the injection site. Symptoms can happen hours to weeks after injection and may include swallowing and breathing problems, loss of strength and muscle weakness all over the body, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, or loss of bladder control. Swallowing and breathing problems can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection.

These effects could make it unsafe for you to drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.

Do not have Dysport treatment if you: are allergic to Dysport or any of its ingredients (see the end of the Medication Guide for a list of ingredients), are allergic to cow’s milk protein, had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product, such as Myobloc®, Botox®, or Xeomin®, have a skin infection at the planned injection site, under 18 years of age, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dose of any other product you may have used.

Tell your doctor about any swallowing or breathing difficulties and all your muscle or nerve conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis [ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease], myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome, which may increase the risk of serious side effects including difficulty swallowing and difficulty breathing.

Tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, including if you have surgical changes to your face, very weak muscles in the treatment area, any abnormal facial change, injection site inflammation, droopy eyelids or sagging eyelid folds, deep facial scars, thick oily skin, wrinkles that can’t be smoothed by spreading them apart, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant or breastfeed.

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins and herbal and other natural products. Using Dysport with certain other medicines may cause serious side effects. Do not start any new medicines while taking Dysport without talking to your doctor first.

Especially tell your doctor if you: have received any other botulinum toxin product, such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA), in the last four months or any in the past (be sure your doctor knows exactly which product you received, have recently received an antibiotic by injection, take muscle relaxants, take an allergy or cold medicine, or take a sleep medicine.
