a non-surgical injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults under 65. Occasionally we run specials on injectables and send them out to our e-newsletter subscribers. Please note that while some offices require you to purchase it separately, Sunset provides numbing cream and/or numbing injections FREE OF CHARGE for all injectable treatments.
Our surgeon-administered Los Angeles Dysport treatments come from the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, which is usually referred to by its product name Dysport®. This non-surgical injection reduces frown lines, forehead creases, and crows feet near the eyes by temporarily blocking the nerve impulses of the underlying muscles. By relaxing a few of the tiny muscles below the skin which cause wrinkles, the skin above appears smoother and the overall look is more youthful and refreshed. Though Dysport was approved to use in the U.S. in Spring 2009, it has a history of use in other countries since 1991. Outside the U.S., it was first approved for aesthetic use in 2001.
The effects of our Los Angeles Dysport injections will appear within 7 days, and typically last 4-6 months. The longevity of the effects can vary from person to person.
Unwanted side effects are rare with Dysport, but can include nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea. Contact us immediately if you experience any of these side effects.
If you are under 18 or are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not have Dysport treatments, as it has not been tested in that regard. Those who suffer any type of neuromuscular disease should not be treated with Dysport. Do not have Dysport treatment if you are allergic to Dysport or any of its ingredients (see the end of the Medication Guide for a list of ingredients), are allergic to cow’s milk protein, had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product (such as Myobloc® or Botox®), or have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
