Benefits of Dysport

• Works within a few days
• No down time

Dysport is a simple, effective, non-surgical treatment that works by relaxing facial muscles, thereby reducing and smoothing away frown-lines and other wrinkles.
Dysport is supported by over a decade of clinical experience.
In New Zealand, Dysport has been used for over 12 years, by eye specialists and neurologists, to treat nervous tics and muscle spasms of the face and neck.
Why has Dr Pitsilis chosen to use Dysport?
Because up to 30% of her patients have reported that it lasts longer. She has also seen this with the patients she injects for migraine and facial pain.
What can Dysport do for you?
Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint, your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen. Frown lines between your eyes can make you look angry or worried even when you’re not.
By temporarily relaxing the muscles you use to frown, Dysport can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face - you may even lose the urge to frown.
What exactly is Dysport?
Dysport is a protein extracted from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The protein was initially used for the treatment of motor disorders and various kinds of involuntary muscular spasms, including cerebral palsy. It was further developed to treat a wide variety of neuromuscular disorders, for which it is licensed in over 60 countries.
How is Dysport used?
Tiny amounts of Dysport are injected directly into the facial muscles underlying the frown lines. The treatment takes only a few minutes, and you can return to work immediately.
How long does it take to work?
Generally over a few days the muscles will gradually relax and you will have a natural and more youthful appearance.
How long does it last?
From one to nine months, but generally 3-5 months, depending on the individual. Rarely, it doesn’t work, and Dr Pitsilis has only seen one case.
Who can benefit from Dysport?
Frown lines affect not just your appearance but also your self-esteem. Dysport can help you look younger, more relaxed and in control.
Can Dysport help men?
Many men are already experiencing the benefits of a younger, more relaxed looking appearance that Dysport can provide. Dr Pitsilis treats many men in her clinic.
Are there any side effects and risks with Dysport?
Most people experience none. The most common side effects are temporary soreness or mild bruising around the injection site. Dr Pitsilis and her nurses will discuss this with you.
You should not have Dysport treatment while you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or at all if you have a neuromuscular disease.
