Botulinium Toxin 肉毒杆菌
• What is Botulinium toxin (Dysport) therapy?
Botulinium toxin (Dysport) therapy is a quick and simple non-surgical procedure that involves injections of Dysport in the selected facial muscles using a very fine needle.
Dysport is a natural purified protein that relaxes muscles that cause wrinkling, resulting in a smoothened and more youthful appearance.
• Where can it be used?
Dysport is widely used in facial enhancement, such as for:
-elimination of frown lines and forehead wrinkles
-elimination of crow's feet (smile lines around the eyes)
-reducing neck folds and chin creases
-reducing bitterness lines (marionette lines)
-reducing bunny lines (nasal scrunch)
-excessive sweating (palm, armpit etc)
-facial contouring (square jaw)
-chemical brow lift (arches & flared brow)
-prominent lower eyelid
• Who can have Dysport?
Dysport is equally effective on men and women.
It is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding, or for patients with a history of neuromuscular disease, or who are currently taking aminoglycoside antibiotics or penicillamine.
• How long is the procedure?
About 10 – 15 minutes.
• After the procedure:
After receiving Dysport, it is recommended you maintain an upright posture for at least 4 hours.
It is recommended that you do not rub vigorously or massage the treated area. However, moving the facial muscles of the treated area will help to enhance the response of Dysportat the targeted muscles.
• Are there any side effects?
Most patients have no complaints.
Some of the side effects like mild bruising are temporary and localised to the area of injections, and can be easily covered with make up.
Occasionally, you may experience pain at the injection sites or mild transient headache, lasting less than 24hrs, which may be relieved with paracetamol.
There have been no reported cases of permanent side effects of Dysport.
• How soon can I expect to see the effects?
The results are apparent gradually within 3-5 days.
Full effect is achieved around 7-10 days.
Effect of Dysport lasts 3-6 months depending on the individual.
• What happens if I did not continue treatment?
The result will wear off gradually after about 4-6 months.
The expression lines will slowly return to the pretreatment appearance.
