Dysport in Washington DC and Olney

 
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?
 
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.
 
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.
 

Is Dysport New?
 
No! Dysport has been available in Europe, Asia, and South America for over 10 years.  
 
Dysport is manufactured by Ipsen Pharmaceuticals (FRA) and is supported by over a decade of clinical experience.  Dysport is distributed in the United States by Medicis, the manufacturers of the revolutionary Restylane dermal filler. Dysport was developed in the United Kingdom in the early 1990’s to successfully treat a number of neurological and opthamalic conditions.
 
It was further developed to treat a wide variety of neuromuscular disorders, for which it is licensed in over 60 countries. Since that time, with an increased understanding of the uses of Dysport, thousands of treatments have been safely and effectively performed for a variety of conditions ranging from facial wrinkles to axillary Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the armpits).
 


 
Is Dysport Safe?
 
Dysport injections have been used safely and effectively for over fifteen years to treat many ophthalmologic and neurological disorders. Numerous safety studies performed in around the world have shown it to have an equal or more favorable safety profile than Botox.  
 
However, while rare some side effects can and occur. The most common side effects are temporary soreness or mild bruising around the injection site. Some people may experience a slight headache that lasts for several hours after treatment; it is safe to take a mild pain killer to relieve this.
 
In a very small percentage of cases there can be a complication called “ptosis” (a drooping eyelid) which may last a few days or up to 4 weeks. Ptosis is not considered to be a normal side effect and is normally due to injector error or lack of injector experience.

 

Is Dysport better than Botox?
 
This topic is widely debated and heavily biased due to most comparative cosmetic studies being partially of fully funded by manufacturers of Botox (Allergan) and Dysport (Ipsen/Medicis).  
 
Many cosmetic physicians outside the U.S. who have used Dysport report greater longevity when compared to Botox.  In most unbiased neurological studies for the treatment of movement disorders, Dysport has provided equal or greater efficacy when used in a 2.5 to 4:1 ratio to Botox.  
 
In a double-blinded randomized crossover study in cervical dystonia (the most common use of neurotoxin in the world), results showed Dysport to be more effective than Botox with a similar safety and side effect profile when used in a 3:1 dose relationship.
 

Why is Injector Selection More Important Than Ever?
 
Studies indicate that Dysport possibly disperses more widely than Botox Cosmetic when injected.
 
While this is advantageous when treating broader areas of small wrinkles such as crows feet, when used to treat glabellar lines of the forehead it could lead to increased occurrence of ptosis (drooping eyelid) if injected by someone inexperienced with Dysport.
