Dysport® Injections to Treat Frown Lines

Frown lines appear in the glabella area, which is the smooth skin between your eyebrows. Over the years, these lines may grow deeper to the point where they are visible even when you are not frowning or squinting your eyes. Dysport® is an FDA-approved treatment used to smooth the glabella area by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin.

Dysport is very similar to Botox in that it is also derived from botulinum toxins. Used in small dosages, it is safe and very effective for the temporary reduction of wrinkle lines. Dysport injections block muscle contractions by inhibiting the nerves in the muscle from signaling the brain. This action prevents the skin on top of the muscle from wrinkling and allows it to remain smooth.

Results for Dysport Treatment

Moderate to severe glabellar lines can be treated with Dysport injections. It is important to note that results, while effective are also temporary, and follow-up injections will be necessary to maintain a wrinkle-free look.

Fine needles are used to inject the Dysport into the muscles below the glabella. This usually takes about five small injections. A topical anesthetic may be used to ensure your comfort. You should not feel any pain during the procedure. You may, however, feel the pressure of the needle during the injection.

Side effects from wrinkle treatment with Dysport are minimal. The most common side effects are minor pain at the injection site. There can be some swelling around the eyelids, and some patients have experienced rash or irritation and headaches. They usually resolve on their own after a few days. Inform your doctor if they continue any longer than that.

Results from the injections are not immediate, but you will see the difference in a couple of days. Your recovery time from Dysport injections is immediate. You can resume your normal activities after you receive your treatment. You can expect the results from your Dysport injections to last between three to four months. Subsequent treatments will be necessary for maintenance.

You can find out more about treating frown lines with Dysport and other facial cosmetic treatments by scheduling an appointment at Creative Facial Aesthetics today. Dr. Khosh and Michele Rivard, PA, will be happy to discuss treatment options with you.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
