Dysport, like Botox, is a botulinum toxin used to temporarily weaken muscles to reduce deep facial wrinkles.

Dysport Side Effects

The most commonly reported side effects of cosmetically injected Dysport are flu-like symptoms, pain at the injection site, nose and throat irritation, drooping eyelids (the technical term is ptosis) and uneven or drooping eyebrows. Your skin may swell or bruise. This is not long-lasting.

Who shouldn't use it: Dysport should not be used by individuals with allergies to cow's milk protein or by pregnant women, as it may cause birth defects. Hold off on Dysport injections if you have a skin infection on or near the skin where you plan on injecting the material.

Drawbacks: Dysport is slightly more apt to migrate to nearby muscles than Botox, so it is less useful for very carefully placed microinjections.

Recovery Time For Dysport

Dysport injections have no downtime. Go ahead and return to work, if you feel physically strong enough. Just stay out of the gym for 24 hours, since excess movements can jolt the solution out of place.

After care for Dysport: On the day of treatment, avoid laying flat on your back, stay out of the sun, and retire your gym shoes. Drugstore pain relievers like ibuprofen can alleviate any aches afterward.
