InjectablesDysport™

 

Dysport™ is a muscle relaxer which causes a temporary blockage of muscle activity in a specific area where it is injected.  It is similar to Botox™ however it is a more refined version which has greater activity.  Consequently,  its onset of action is usually faster (1-3 days for most patients,  versus 5-7 days for Botox™) and lasts longer 3-12 months for most patients (versus 3 months for Botox™).  It is injected in subunit areas such as midline glabella furrows (area between the brows),  forehead, lateral canthal (crows feet),  brow elevation,  creping lines under the eyelids,  bunny lines over the nose.   Injections usually only require topical ice for “anesthetic” although more sensitive patients can have a topical anesthetic which requires some application time prior to injection.   Post injection bruising can occur however it can be remedied quickly with a laser treatment.  It has the same side effect profile as Botox.   Only restrictions are no rubbing the treatment areas and no exercise activity for 24 hrs.  In general, these agents are very safe and usually act locally where they are injected, systemic effects are rare.
