For Facial Wrinkles "I received forehead injections for the "11" crease and then some in my lips. I had severe headaches for over a month and my lips were horrible looking which distorted my lips to a point that my daughter thought I got dentures. My lips continued to be bothersome and now 8 weeks later they still burn, pucker, swell, burn, get crusty and then dry out and peel several times a day. I had trouble with slobbering while I ate or talked much and that has lessened but continues. It has been a miserable experience. I have had Botox in the past without any side effects and great results. This use of Dysport has been so disappointing and miserable. I am looking forward to the day it wears off. $630 for nothing but chronic issues."

For Facial Wrinkles "I had Dysport 23 days ago. I absolutely hate the look and feel physically awful. I got this injection around eye for forehead frown, crows feet and lip flip. My eyebrows feel heavy and I now have big bags under eyes which I have never had before this injection. The bags are below my eye almost on upper cheek. Horrendous to the point I do not want to be seen. I also have developed a nasal issues which feels like a lump in my throat 5 days after injection. I have to swallow constantly and it is driving me nuts. How this was ever approved by FDA I will never know. I guess when this type of procedure screws up so bad we feel a little guilty that we did it in the first place but this is definitely the wrong way to feel. I've had botox yearly for the last 15 years and NEVER had an issue. This stuff seems to migrates! I guess we sign waivers thinking this will never happen and we basically sign permission to be harmed."

For Facial Wrinkles "I highly recommend Dysport. I have been using it ever since it became available. Dysport works much better for me, not only is less expensive it lasts a long time. I will soon be 60 years young.I used to have very deep laugh lines around my eye area into my cheeks, also between my brows and forehead. All the lines are gone.Recently I returned to Botox because it such a good deal. Unfortunately the Botox only lasted for a few weeks.Because of also using Obaji with Retiina, I think my skin looks better now than it did twenty years ago! I hope Dysport eventually becomes more affordable. I highly recommend it."

For Cervical Dystonia "I receive Dysport inj's every 3 mos for the treatment of Cervical Dystonia. It improves my ability to control my moderate-severe compensatory no-no tremor. It helps with pain by relaxing the constant twisting and pulling of overactive muscles."

For Cervical Dystonia "I have been switched to Dysport a month ago from Botox, which had become increasingly less effective for my Cervical Dystonia. I feel remarkably better with a less of the turning sensation to the left, more flexibility and increased comfort. It started taking effect on Day 2 vs. a week with Botox. So glad my neurologist switched to the toxin."

"I had dysport in muscles in my shoulders but the neurologist did not have my notes and injected me in the wrong muscles. I had an adverse reaction , have never been through anything so horrendous in my life and no one helped me. My muscles are a mess now the dysport has absolutely ruined my life ."

For Facial Wrinkles "I used Dysport, at first it looked great by my mouth and I was so happy but 6 weeks later. It was wearing off and not worth the 1200.00 dollars I paid."
