Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA)

ABOUT Dysport®

Plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah Ekstrom offers Dysport at Salisbury Plastic Surgery in Worcester, MA to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles (should be same verbiage on Botox). Unlike Dermal fillers, Dysport is a wrinkle relaxer. For adults who want a natural look, Dysport is a natural looking, fast acting, prescription injection proven to help smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face.

Ideal Candidates

During the initial consultation, the doctor will ask about your concerns and goals to help you decide if Dysport is the best treatment for you. Ideal candidates will have: Wrinkles that are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, facial asymmetry, particularly around the eyebrows. Wrinkles that make you look sad, tired, or mad.

What to Expect

A Dysport® treatment is usually performed on the same day as your consultation in about 15 – 30 minutes as an outpatient procedure. The plastic surgeon will clean the treatment sites before the Dysport® is injected into the facial muscles with a thin needle. Most patients feel mild to no discomfort during the procedure, but local anesthesia or numbing cream can be used if the patient prefers. Patients will be able to leave immediately after their Dysport® treatment, but they should avoid lying down, touching the injection sites, and exercise for at least 24 hours. There may be temporary bruising, swelling, or redness in the first 1 – 2 days.

Anticipated Results

While some results will be seen immediately after the treatment, patients will see the full results of Dysport® in 3 – 4 days as the dynamic wrinkles begin to soften and smooth. Dysport® treatments usually last 3 – 5 months, so patients are encouraged to schedule their next appointment after their treatment to prevent the results from fading. The plastic surgeon may also suggest a follow-up appointment several weeks after the initial treatment to check the patient’s progress and add more Dysport®, if needed.
