Dysport®

Prescription Dysport® is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.

PROCEDURE PREPARATION

Injectables (BOTOX®, Dysport® and Xeomin®) carry the risk of bruising if you are taking certain supplements or medications. To reduce this risk, please note the items on this list and discontinue at least 3 days (7 days if time allows) before your appointment for injections. Cannula injection techniques have dramatically reduced the incidence of bruising but you can further reduce bruising possibility by following these recommendations.

MEDICATIONS TO DISCONTINUE 3 DAYS BEFORE TREATMENT (7 DAYS IF TIME ALLOWS) **

  • Aspirin
  • Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, Aleve)
  • St. John’s Wort
  • Omega 3 fatty acids (Fish Oil)
  • Vitamin E
  • Ginger
  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Ginseng
  • Green Tea

**If you have been prescribed Aspirin or any prescription Blood Thinner, do not discontinue unless permitted by your prescribing physician. Cold Sores: If you have a history of cold sores, ask us about pre-care instructions.

PROCEDURE EXPECTATIONS

The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes. Your NuMe expert clinician will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

Some patients report that being injected can feel like a pinch. If you are concerned about this potential, your NuMe practitioner can apply ice or topical cream to numb the treatment area prior to your treatment.

POST-TREATMENT

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment and you should not lose the ability to show expression. Be mindful not to rub or massage the treated areas. This can cause the toxin to migrate to a different area.

Keep head elevated for 3 hours after injection. Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery and you’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your NuMe facility. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, Maximal results are typically seen in 7-9 days with results lasting up to 4 months.

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS

The intensity and duration of your side effects depends on the treatment aggressiveness and your individual healing characteristics, but usually can last up to a week after treatment.

Swelling: You will notice most of the swelling the first morning after treatment, particularly under the eyes. Swelling usually lasts two to three days. To minimize swelling:

Apply cold compresses to the treatment area for 10 minutes every hour. Sleep elevated the first night. Use several pillows for elevation. If you are a stomach sleeper, try to sleep on your back the first night

Redness: You may apply makeup immediately after treatment to minimize the redness.

Tenderness/Pain: You may take Advil or Tylenol if necessary.

AFTER-TREATMENT SKIN-CARE RECOMMENDATIONS

Avoid Excessive Sun and Heat: Until any initial swelling and redness has resolved. This includes aggressive exercise.

Avoid squeezing or massaging the treated areas for several hours after treatment, as this may subtly change the shape we are trying to achieve.

Sunscreen: Proper and frequent application of sunscreen is always important. The sunscreen should offer broadband protection (UVA and UVB) and have a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or more. You should apply sunscreen 20 minutes before going outside, and again, immediately before. After that, reapply your sunscreen every 2 hours. If direct sun exposure is necessary, wear a hat and clothing that covers the treated area. Use this regimen during the healing period and always.
