Dysport in Orange County

Soften & Smooth

Over time, the way you move your face, including a frown or that scrunched-up skeptical look, can cause wrinkles and fine lines. There’s a fix for that, even if other cosmetic treatments have failed you. Dysport injections are a natural-looking cosmetic treatment targeting moderate to severe frown lines in between the eyebrows, also known as “11’s”.

Dysport is a prescription injectable that works by targeting the areas of the forehead that cause those wrinkles in the first place. The injections temporarily prevent those facial muscles from contracting, smoothing out your skin and softening your forehead. The immediate results are subtle but will only improve over time.

If you’re interested in natural-looking results, our expert team at the Med Lounge offers Dysport in Orange County that will leave you looking fresh-faced and feeling like a younger version of yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dysport is a prescription injection of botulinum toxin — not unlike Botox — used to treat moderate to severe frown lines in between the eyebrows.

Your provider will inject Dysport into five spots between your eyebrows or your glabellar lines, essentially in a V-shaped formation. Those injection sites are strategic. It’s where you’re most likely to scrunch up your face when you frown or squint, causing deep-set wrinkles over time.

This is where the magic happens. The injections work by temporarily preventing muscle contractions in those targeted spots on your forehead. Reducing the activities that cause wrinkles also means fewer wrinkles over time and natural-looking results that leave you looking fresh-faced.

Dysport injections are best in patients under 65 who haven’t had luck improving moderate to severe wrinkles between the eyebrows. Dysport treatment is also for the low-maintenance crowd. There is zero downtime associated with Dysport injections, and any visible marks that you had anything done at all are very temporary.

Your results, though, are long-lasting.

Most will see improvement in 2-3 days after their treatment. Considering your treatment will only take 10-20 minutes tops, that’s an impressive turnaround time. Again, most will go about their day right after treatment, as Dysport is a minimally invasive, non-surgical way to address those stubborn wrinkles.x

Dysport is similar to Botox in that both can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and both are botulinum toxin injections. Dysport is primarily used to treat the area between the eyebrows or frown lines and works best in moderate to severe wrinkles. If you’d like to address fine lines and wrinkles in your forehead, crow’s feet, even areas of the lower face, Botox injections may be more appropriate.   

The experts at the Med Lounge will match you up with the treatments you need to get the results you want.

Dysport injections last about three months in the average patient, but some will see results for 5-6 months. Subsequent treatments tend to last longer than the first round, and you may find your wrinkles improving over time as you continue receiving Dysport.

What to Expect With Dysport

For the best results and to reduce the chance of any side effects after your treatment, our experts at the Med Lounge have a few tips around what to expect with Dysport before and after your procedure.

PRE-TREATMENT

  • Let your doctor know if you have a history of cold sores. You’ll need a prescription to get rid of any active infection or prevent an infection after your treatment.
  • Avoid any anti-inflammatories or blood-thinning medications up to two weeks before your treatment. Those include but aren’t limited to aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen, and Aleve. If you take daily aspirin for a history of heart disease, talk to your doctor before stopping your aspirin routine.
  • Avoid any herbal supplements up to two weeks before your treatment. Those include but aren’t limited to garlic, ginseng, vitamin E, omega-3, fish oil, ginkgo biloba and St. John’s Wort.
  • Try to avoid scheduling any special events in the two weeks after your Dysport injections. Some patients report swelling and bruising in treatment areas, which will subside within a few days in most cases.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol the week of your treatment.
  • Consider taking Arnica tablets several days ahead of your treatment. Arnica could help prevent bruising at your injection site. 
  • Arrive at your appointment fresh-faced. That means no makeup and no topical creams. Your provider would remove anything you’ve applied anyway ahead of your Dysport injections.
  •  

POST-TREATMENT

  • Avoid touching or massaging your face in the first 4 hours after your Dysport injections.
  • Your provider may suggest facial exercises in the 30 minutes after your treatment to allow the injections to work their way into the targeted muscles. This can look like frowning or squinting and is about as intense a workout as you should have for at least 4 hours after treatment. 
  • While you’re at it, avoid any heavy lifting, saunas or anything that will strain your muscles too intensely in the 4 hours after treatment. 
  • Avoid applying makeup to your face the day of your treatment. The new fresh-faced you may not need it anyway. Avoid hats or headbands the day of your treatment, as well, or anything that would put pressure on your injection site.
  • Some swelling or redness is a normal reaction and should resolve within a few days after treatment. 
  • Give yourself at least two weeks before any facials or additional cosmetic treatments. Allow up to 10 days for full results of your Dysport injections to take effect before calling your doctor’s office for a touchup of injections.
  • Call your doctor if you have any severe side effects, such as increased pain or swelling, blisters or a severe skin rash. Some redness, swelling or bruising at the injection site is all normal and temporary.

Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age.

Important Safety Information

What is the most important information you should know about Dysport? Spread of Toxin Effects: In some cases, the effects of Dysport and all botulinum toxin products may affect areas of the body away from the injection site. Symptoms can happen hours to weeks after injection and may include swallowing and breathing problems, loss of strength and muscle weakness all over the body, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, or loss of bladder control. Swallowing and breathing problems can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre‐existing before injection.

These effects could make it unsafe for you to drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.

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®, Botox®, or Xeomin®, have a skin infection at the planned injection site, under 18 years of age, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dose of any other product you may have used.

Tell your doctor about any swallowing or breathing difficulties and all your muscle or nerve conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis [ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease], myasthenia gravis, or Lambert‐Eaton syndrome, which may increase the risk of serious side effects including difficulty swallowing and difficulty breathing. Serious allergic reactions have occurred with the use of Dysport. Dry eye has also been reported.

Tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, including if you have surgical changes to your face, very weak muscles in the treatment area, any abnormal facial change, injection site inflammation, droopy eyelids or sagging eyelid folds, deep facial scars, thick oily skin, wrinkles that can’t be smoothed by spreading them apart, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant or breastfeed.

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins and herbal and other natural products. Using Dysport with certain other medicines may cause serious side effects. Do not start any new medicines while taking Dysport without talking to your doctor first.

Especially tell your doctor if you: have received any other botulinum toxin product, such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA), in the last four months or any in the past (be sure your doctor knows exactly which product you received, have recently received an antibiotic by injection, take muscle relaxants, take an allergy or cold medicine, or take a sleep medicine.
Common Side Effects

The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea.

Ask your doctor if Dysport is right for you.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) Important Information

 

Indications

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is indicated in adult patients for the temporary improvement in the appearance of:

– Moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity

– Moderate to severe lateral canthal lines associated with orbicularis oculi activity

 

– Moderate to severe forehead lines associated with frontalis activity

 

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION, INCLUDING BOXED WARNING

 

WARNING: DISTANT SPREAD OF TOXIN EFFECT

Postmarketing reports indicate that the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic and all botulinum toxin products may spread from the area of injection to produce symptoms consistent with botulinum toxin effects. These may include asthenia, generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, ptosis, dysphagia, dysphonia, dysarthria, urinary incontinence, and breathing difficulties. These symptoms have been reported hours to weeks after injection. Swallowing and breathing difficulties can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. The risk of symptoms is probably greatest in children treated for spasticity, but symptoms can also occur in adults treated for spasticity and other conditions, particularly in those patients who have an underlying condition that would predispose them to these symptoms. In unapproved uses and approved indications, cases of spread of effect have been reported at doses comparable to those used to treat cervical dystonia and spasticity and at lower doses.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

BOTOX® Cosmetic is contraindicated in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any botulinum toxin preparation or to any of the components in the formulation.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Lack of Interchangeability Between Botulinum Toxin Products

The potency units of BOTOX® Cosmetic are specific to the preparation and assay method utilized. They are not interchangeable with other preparations of botulinum toxin products and, therefore, units of biological activity of BOTOX® Cosmetic cannot be compared to nor converted into units of any other botulinum toxin products assessed with any other specific assay method.

Spread of Toxin Effect

Please refer to Boxed Warning for Distant Spread of Toxin Effect.

No definitive serious adverse event reports of distant spread of toxin effect associated with dermatologic use of BOTOX® Cosmetic at the labeled dose of 20 Units (for glabellar lines), 24 Units (for lateral canthal lines), 40 Units (for forehead lines with glabellar lines), 44 Units (for simultaneous treatment of lateral canthal lines and glabellar lines), and 64 Units (for simultaneous treatment of lateral canthal lines, glabellar lines, and forehead lines) have been reported. Patients or caregivers should be advised to seek immediate medical care if swallowing, speech, or respiratory disorders occur.

Serious Adverse Reactions With Unapproved Use

Serious adverse reactions, including excessive weakness, dysphagia, and aspiration pneumonia, with some adverse reactions associated with fatal outcomes, have been reported in patients who received BOTOX® injections for unapproved uses. In these cases, the adverse reactions were not necessarily related to distant spread of toxin, but may have resulted from the administration of BOTOX® to the site of injection and/or adjacent structures. In several of the cases, patients had pre-existing dysphagia or other significant disabilities. There is insufficient information to identify factors associated with an increased risk for adverse reactions associated with the unapproved uses of BOTOX®. The safety and effectiveness of BOTOX® for unapproved uses have not been established.

Hypersensitivity Reactions

Serious and/or immediate hypersensitivity reactions have been reported. These reactions include anaphylaxis, serum sickness, urticaria, soft-tissue edema, and dyspnea. If such reactions occur, further injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic should be discontinued and appropriate medical therapy immediately instituted. One fatal case of anaphylaxis has been reported in which lidocaine was used as the diluent and, consequently, the causal agent cannot be reliably determined.

Cardiovascular System

There have been reports following administration of BOTOX® of adverse events involving the cardiovascular system, including arrhythmia and myocardial infarction, some with fatal outcomes. Some of these patients had risk factors including pre-existing cardiovascular disease. Use caution when administering to patients with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.

Increased Risk of Clinically Significant Effects With Pre-existing Neuromuscular Disorders

Individuals with peripheral motor neuropathic diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or neuromuscular junction disorders (eg, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome) should be monitored when given botulinum toxin. Patients with neuromuscular disorders may be at increased risk of clinically significant effects including generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, ptosis, dysphonia, dysarthria, severe dysphagia, and respiratory compromise from onabotulinumtoxinA (see Warnings and Precautions).

Dysphagia and Breathing Difficulties

Treatment with BOTOX® and other botulinum toxin products can result in swallowing or breathing difficulties. Patients with pre-existing swallowing or breathing difficulties may be more susceptible to these complications. In most cases, this is a consequence of weakening of muscles in the area of injection that are involved in breathing or oropharyngeal muscles that control swallowing or breathing (see Boxed Warning).

Pre-existing Conditions at the Injection Site

Caution should be used when BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is used in the presence of inflammation at the proposed injection site(s) or when excessive weakness or atrophy is present in the target muscle(s).

Dry Eye in Patients Treated With BOTOX® Cosmetic

There have been reports of dry eye associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic injection in or near the orbicularis oculi muscle. If symptoms of dry eye (eg, eye irritation, photophobia, or visual changes) persist, consider referring patients to an ophthalmologist.

Human Albumin and Transmission of Viral Diseases

This product contains albumin, a derivative of human blood. Based on effective donor screening and product manufacturing processes, it carries an extremely remote risk for transmission of viral diseases and variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD). There is a theoretical risk for transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), but if that risk actually exists, the risk of transmission would also be considered extremely remote. No cases of transmission of viral diseases, CJD or vCJD have ever been identified for licensed albumin or albumin contained in other licensed products.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

The most frequently reported adverse reactions following injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic for glabellar lines were eyelid ptosis (3%), facial pain (1%), facial paresis (1%), and muscular weakness (1%).

The most frequently reported adverse reaction following injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic for lateral canthal lines was eyelid edema (1%).

The most frequently reported adverse reactions following injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic for forehead lines with glabellar lines were headache (9%), brow ptosis (2%), and eyelid ptosis (2%).

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Co-administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic and aminoglycosides or other agents interfering with neuromuscular transmission (eg, curare-like compounds) should only be performed with caution as the effect of the toxin may be potentiated. Use of anticholinergic drugs after administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic may potentiate systemic anticholinergic effects.

The effect of administering different botulinum neurotoxin products at the same time or within several months of each other is unknown. Excessive neuromuscular weakness may be exacerbated by

administration of another botulinum toxin prior to the resolution of the effects of a previously administered botulinum toxin.

Excessive weakness may also be exaggerated by administration of a muscle relaxant before or after administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

There are no studies or adequate data from postmarketing surveillance on the developmental risk associated with use of BOTOX® Cosmetic in pregnant women. There are no data on the presence of BOTOX® Cosmetic in human or animal milk, the effects on the breastfed child, or the effects on milk production.
