There is a non-surgical way to improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines – without changing your whole face!
Piedmont HealthCare – Lake Norman Ears, Nose & Throat providers Keith Meetze, MD, Thomas Warren, MD, Herb Wettreich, MD, and Fred New Jr., APRN, BC, are pleased to offer Dysport® injections. Dysport® is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in women and men between the ages of 21-65. The treatment takes about 15-20 minutes and is done in our office. The results can vary, but typically last up to 4 months.
What is Dysport®
Administered through five quick injections between and over the eyebrows, Dysport® contains abobotulinumtoxinA which acts to block contractions of the muscles that cause the “frown lines” between the eyes. This FDA approved injectable has been used for over 10 years in 34 countries.
Schedule a Consultation
If you are interested in Dysport® treatment, please call to schedule an appointment to talk to one of our physicians about the aesthetic benefits and possible side effects.
During your consultation, we will ask you about any medical conditions you may have and any medications you take, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins and herbal and other natural products. Using Dysport® with certain other medicines may cause serious side effects.
Please let us know if you have received any other botulinum toxin product in the last four months, have received injections of botulinum toxin, such as Myobloc®, Botox®, or Xeomin® 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.
Dysport® may not be right for those who have had the following: surgical changes to the face, very weak muscles in the treatment area, droopy or sagging eyelids, deep facial scars, thick oily skin, or if your wrinkles can’t be smoothed by spreading them apart.
You should wait 90 days between Dysport treatments.
