Since the approval of Dysport® by the FDA in 2002, Dysport® has become a $2.4 billion industry with about five million patients using this product throughout the United States.  A powerful ant-aging tool.  An injectable drug, Dysport® helps block the muscle contraction, minimizing facial movement, and helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. 

  Dysport®can be used for many medical reasons, such as to treat cross eye, migraine headaches, excessive sweating, muscle spasms, TMJ, cervical dystonia, and achalasia.  However, it is more commonly used for cosmetic reasons.


Pros of Using this Product


On the “pros” side, this product is known to reduce wrinkles and scarring (including from acne) to help keep skin looking youthful.  In fact, it can actually reduce wrinkles over time, as the areas that are paralyzed will no longer get “repetitive use” wrinkles. It has proven to be a safe solution to anti-aging, with the caveat being that it is not advised for women who are pregnant or nursing.  A study published in the JAMA Dermatology from 2014 indicated a ratio of one negative side effect for every 3,333 injections.


This product begins working within days, and the procedure itself only takes 5-10 minutes to complete.  It is strongly advised to go to an experienced medical professional in a professional facility for this procedure to ensure you are taken care of properly.  This will help ensure that you are getting the correct, FDA-approved product.


Cons of Using this Product


This injection will not last forever.  Usually the effects fade after 3-6 months, which means that you will need to get another injection if you want to continue to see improvement.  Granted, you may see this as a positive if you simply want to test it out to see if you like it, but it is worthwhile to note the frequency required to maintain the benefits.  Treatments can cost several hundred dollars depending on the areas treated and each individual facial assessment.


This product is intended to restrict facial movement, which some people equate to a lack of expression or one more consistent expression.  Some side effects of  can include headache, upset stomach, bruising, dysphasia, changes in mood, neck pain, and in rare cases allergic reaction or upper respiratory tract infections.
