Dysport is hands down the best wrinkle remover on the market.
Works faster, lasts longer, and less expensive than Botox.
Dysport® treatment temporarily improves the look of your moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in a way that suits your style. Desiring to slim your face and have a V shaped face? Dysport can be a very effective way to contour the jaw line by reducing the masseter shadow through the outer jaw skin.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Does Jawline Slimming Work?
The procedure consists 2 to 3 injections of Dysport into the masseter muscle on each side and takes less than a minute or two once the face is cleaned with chlorhexidine. Some people notice an immediate slimming effect from the myofascial release that occurs once the needle penetrates the fascia covering the masseter muscle.
How many units do I need?
The units injected can vary depending on what provider injects it, however we believe that 36 units of Dysport per side (72 units total) is usually the minimal effective dose.
How long until I see results?
The procedure consists 2 to 3 injections into the masseter muscle on each side and takes less than a minute or two once the face is cleaned with chlorhexidine. Some people notice an immediate slimming effect from the myofascial release that occurs once the needle penetrates the fascia covering the masseter muscle. The Dysport doesn't actually start working until 1 to 7 days after the injection.
How long do results last?
The results last about 3-4 months in the average patient.
How do I get the BEST results using Dysport?
As with most medications there is a dose response curve. With Dysport the same is true and it can be diluted to different strengths. Some physicians use 2 IU (international units) dilution, the package insert recommends 2.5 IU. We use 3 IU !!! To put that in English, we use 33% more than someone injecting the 2 IU dilution and 17% more than the recommended dosage.
In the glabella (the area between your eyes) you would get the following amounts in five small injections:
2 IU 40 IU
2.5 IU 50 IU
3 IU 60 IU (my dosing)
Why is that important?
Because: dosage = effectiveness and DURATION!!
When should I not take Dysport?
Do not take Dysport if you:
had a previous allergic reaction to Dysport, Botox, Xeomin, or Myobloc
are allergic to cow's milk protein
have a skin infection at the planned injection site
are pregnant or breastfeeding
