Dysport (aka abobotulinumtoxinA) is an injectable neuromodulator that smooths lines and wrinkles for up to four months. It’s FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines, also called glabellar lines or “11s,” between the eyebrows.
What are the potential risks and side effects of Dysport?
The most common side effects associated with glabellar injections include upper respiratory infections, headaches, injection-site pain, eyelid swelling, and nausea
What can you expect after a Dysport injection?
You’ll likely have some mild redness or swelling at the injection sites. Some people also have light bruising for up to a week. Otherwise, you’ll be able to get on with your day.
Headaches, which are more common for first-timers, should go away within a few days and can be treated with ibuprofen or acetaminophen.
Your doctor may recommend avoiding exercise and other strenuous activities, as well as lying flat for a few hours post-treatment, to limit the risk of the drug spreading and creating unwanted effects. For the same reason, don’t rub the injection sites.
When will you see results?
It can take about a week for Dysport to take effect, depending on where you were injected and how many units you received.
