The “Do’s” and “Don’ts” of Dysport®


  • Do ensure you are seeing a trained medical professional who routinely administers Botox and Dysport®.
  • Do find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure and be clear about what Botox®/Dysport® can and can not
  • Do inform your injector of any allergies or medications you are taking as some antibiotics and drugs may interfere with the action of Botox/Dysport.
  • Do refrain from having treatment if you suffer from any Neuromuscular conditions.
  • Do exaggerate facial expressions in injected areas for 1 hour after injection to help work the product into the targeted area.
  • Do be aware that some tenderness, bruising, temporary headaches can occur which will resolve quickly.
  • Do report any serious and or immediate allergic reactions. Side effects are rare but they should be addressed right away.


  • Don’t overdo it. The goal is to help you look naturally refreshed.  It’s better to look like you need work done than to look like you’ve had work done. 
  • Don’t worry if you don’t see results immediately.  Botox and Dysport can take anywhere from 4 – 7 days to see kick in. Some patients see results faster than others.
  • Don’t get treated with Botox or Dysport if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • Don’t take ibuprofen, aspirin, or vitamin E for 24 hours before or after injection.
  • Don’t massage or touch the injection sites for up to 48 hours. You may wash your face and apply makeup as usual but be gentle!
  • Don’t exercise for at least 4 hours as lying down or bending down may cause the Botox to spread to an undesirable neighboring area causing droopiness or double vision.
  • Don’t price shop. Good Botox is never cheap and cheap Botox is never good.
  • Don’t have any corrective injections within 14 days of your procedure. Remember, it can take up to 2 weeks to see full results.
  • Don’t Contact us today for more information or to schedule a consultation.
