Dysport is a purified form of the botulinum toxin, commonly used for the treatment of wrinkles on the forehead, as well as muscle spasms and cervical dystonia. Sacramento cosmetic surgeon Dr. Heir may recommend Dysport for treating conditions such as frown lines, glabellar lines and crow’s feet.
What to Expect During Dysport Treatment
Before Dysport injection, the doctor must determine the proper dosage and the areas chosen for wrinkle reduction. The areas are cleansed thoroughly before the injection, which is placed in tiny facial muscles that cause muscle contraction and the formation of dynamic wrinkles. Dysport blocks the release of acetylcholine, which effectively stops muscle contractions for several months.
After Your Dysport Treatment
You will be able to return to work or your normal routine immediately. Dr. Heir may advise you to avoid alcohol and sun exposure, and remain upright for about six hours. The results will take effect in four to eight days. Your wrinkles will flatten out and become less apparent.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
With a proper dose and a proper injection technique, there should be no visible change in your facial expressiveness. Always seek a trained medical professional for your Dysport treatments.
What is the proper dose for Dysport? Is it the same as Botox?
The dosage depends on your facial anatomy. Because Dysport works by temporarily paralyzing small facial muscles, the size of the muscle will affect dosage to some extent. Men in particular often require a larger dose for this reason. Dysport and Botox are NOT interchangeable products. Ask Dr. Heir about the key differences between these two products.
What is a glabellar line?
Glabellar lines, also known as frown lines, reside between the eyebrows, on the smooth part of your forehead. They are vertical lines, which people have frequently called the “angry 11s.”
Are there possible side effects with Dysport?
Side effects occur infrequently, but may include redness, bruising, stinging around the injection site(s), nausea, fatigue, flu-like symptoms, headache and eyelid droop.
