Procedures > Dysport


Dysport is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles of adult patients under 65 years of age. The purpose of the Dysport injection is for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines).  Frown lines and wrinkles appear as a result of muscular over use due to repeated facial expressions. Dysport can reduce the frown lines that form between the eyebrows. Once Dr. Schwartz administers Dysport, the medicine inhibits these muscles from tightening for a period of time of up to 4 months.

Dr. Schwartz would like to remind you that wrinkles and frown lines are not specifically age related. Younger adults can also benefit from the use of Dysport to reduce frown lines that form as a result of frowning or squinting over time.

As the muscles located above and between the eyebrows contract and get tighter, wrinkles can appear. By using Dysport, the nerve signal that causes facial muscles to contract is blocked. The Dysport procedure results in a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles due to a reduction of muscle activity in the treated area.

Dysport is a purified formula. Dysport is most effective in the delivery of temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines. The repeat use of Dysport has been known to yield similar results as the first treatment.

People who use Dysport can smile normally and feel free to express themselves without having to worry about other parts of the face being affected. Dysport only affects the facial muscles that have been treated. Untreated facial muscles continue to behave normally and facial expressions remain natural.

Dysport features little to no downtime after injection. We proudly use Dysport in our Woodbury, Long Island Cosmetic Plastic Surgery facility and Dysport is currently used for aesthetic purposes in 36 countries around the world including the United States.

It is important to speak with Dr. Schwartz about any precautions you should take before or after your treatment. If you have any problems after Dysport treatment, it is important to notify your physician immediately.
