I had dysport done on the 27th of June 2014 while on a cruise ship with horrifying effects on my eyes! I have trouble seeing properly at the moment which is a real worry; my once very pretty curved eyebrows are now just one straight line - seems as if I move my eyes they go really up on the sides? Eyelids are drooping and heavy. I look like a stranger. I am absolutely devastated and constantly in tears. How long will this effect last? Will I get my old face back? If so, how soon? This was the first time I ever done something like this - wish I never did! Does dysport actually work for anyone?

Just read the manufacturer's own warnings. the fact that you haven't seen it means nothing in terms of scientific fact. These are dangerous products that should be banned.

Spoke to Dysport pharmacist he told me how it travels through our bodies and more. It needs to be pulled for sure! Need more ppl to complain to them. Need Doc's to agree that Dysport is ruining lives!!

Yes, have his name, dates, times. Read what u posted and my face has aged as well. My face fell a lot look about 7 to 10 years older. I no longer work out, walk, exercise like I did before this poison. It sucks the life out of us. It never leaves our bodies. I found studies that its been on peoples brains, hands, feet. Pretty sad.. Wish I found this site before I injected.

I would love to read that study. I've actually been studying the brain. Because it crossed the brain barrier it wreaks havoc on the entire nervous system. I now have CFS and fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is absolutely a nervous system disease set-off by the Dysport. I can have one or two good days and then another week of being in pain and feeling weak. It's so depressing. I do believe it stays dormant and then comes out as something new every few months. I've had one thing after another and I KNOW It's all connected from being poisoned. Feel better. I try to stay off this board because I get depressed all over again but if we can help each other or one other person it's worth it.

Sorry! I just feel more I put my story out the more I save ppl from going through hell. I have saved two ppl so far from talking in private and showing before and after pics. I believe the nervous system and all. I have good and bad days as well. I will post links to my findings. My hands, feet, face have wrinkled so bad. Yes I get depressed on here to. I no longer look in mirrors avoid them as much as I can. No more family pics!! Ruined my entire being..

Me too. I wear sunglasses ALL THE TIME to cover my permanent eye droop and the horrible weird pouches under my eyes, my entire face sagged and I have the weirdest bunched up skin on my forehead. None of that compares to how we feel though, right? The quality of life was just torn away from us. I constantly daydream of going back in time and never doing it. What gets me the most mad is I didn't trust my intuition. The doc suggested Dysport and I said "I've never heard of that and I"m very sensitive" and he responded "Oh it's fine It's even better than botox and has been used in Europe for years". If only I listened to my inner voice. Ughhhh. We will stay strong and positive. No mirrors for me either. I must get back to ositive thinking!

I do same with glasses try not to look at ppl for fear they will see my bags forehead heavy face uneven. My entire face had fallen as well. Never felt so ugly in my life. I do the same thing why didn't I leave. Wish I never did it. My injector said you'll be fine we all did it hear I did Doc blah blah. Never heard a one side effect. Dry eyes alone I would never have injected. Dry eyes is horrible. On the 9 I'll be 10 out and still dry eyes more wrinkles face fell bad. Loose skin. Ugly duckling!! Not a day goes by I don't regret doing it. It was my first and last time.

I would kill for that feeling of being comfortable just being me again before I went down this horrific road. Now, everyday is a challenge. My left eye has a constant twitch and my eye sight is horrible out of that eye. I went to an eye specialist twice and he couldn't find anything wrong with me. I know that it's from my injections ,so I just have to wait it out. I tried to drive 3 hrs to go see my family on Easter and had to turn around after an hour because I couldn't focus on the road. My face has aged a good ten years,too. Everyday something new pops up, and it's never good. Totally wrecked our lives for sure.

Same! First and last time. Amazing how 10 minutes can change your life. Yes the dry eyes! I got drops that have helped. I have some bacteria on the lids (I know it's from the shot too - I've never had an eye issue). To sweet dreams and changing our thoughts to good ones...

Wow would love to see them. Mine didn't change instantly. It took about 24-48 hours. Then I looked even worse than now. My forehead was frozen and it weighed down my brows. I could hardly open my eyes and the hoods of my lids are so heavy - even now. That part is the worst of my appearance. Coulda, shoulda, wouda. Where is that time travel machine!

Yes same here. I have blurry vision and different symptoms every month or so. I was a voracious reader and it's very hard to read now. I'm going back to another detox tomorrow. Spirulina and Chlorella seem to help me feel better. Good luck. Let's heal ourselves and believe that it CAN happen!

The Dr told me I had blepharitis..clogged oil glands on upper/lower lids...never had eye issues,either... and my vision is 20/20..must be the nerves around my eye ??? What bothers me the most is that it throws off my equilibrium and makes me dizzy..what a mess...

Florida girl know that feeling my daughter had vertigo. I had great vision before. My best feature were my eyes. Now I hide them with more bangs and in my eyes. Can't wear eyeliner at all anymore. I use drops never had to in past. Eye dic said dry eyes scratching causing marks on my eye itself.

I will share any of my pics to whoever wants to see. Send me a private message with email or phone number. You'll be amazed in 10 months what it's done to my once pretty face. I look at pics from a year ago I really didn't need dysport a so called friend talked me into doing it. Dumb!!! Regret it daily!! The thoughts that run through my mind now!!

YES! Same thing. Very same thing. I couldn't remember the name. There is also some 'dot' behind right eye they are keeping an eye on for melanoma. Same eye that has the droop. Coincidence on all of this? I think not.

I can't send a private message have no idea what is wrong with my computer/account. Can you send me one and I can write back - maybe that will work.

Hi, Huddie.. Did you have blurry vision out of that eye,too? If so, how long did it take to resolve? As I type, I feel the twitch in my left eye. It constantly feels like something is in there too.
  • Reply
Yes. In the beginning my eyes were really horrible. Wouldn't open completely due to droop and heavy forehead (I looked like a caveman). Constant, and I do mean constant, tearing, dry and sensitive to light. Everyone is different so I don't want to frighten you but it took over a year for the tearing to stop. I have a permanent droop and in that eye is where I've had all the problems. My eyes also look odd. The whites are sort of dull, my hair got really dull and brittle , I had chronic headaches (never head a head ache in my life), constant neck, shoulder and arm pain (that's still constant), and nerve pain that goes from my right under my rear end down the middle of the back of my legs. That's nerve stuff. Last June I couldn't walk for a day it was so bad. That was scary but it only lasted a day. I can now walk and the migraines are away. I am continuing to detox. Microcurrent facials help a lot! They are expensive but the only thing that helps. They were originally designed for bells palsy. You need someone who uses the real machine. Good luck.

Thanks, Huddie ,for writing back. Sounds like hell everything you have gone through. The whites of my eyes are also dull, almost yellow. It also changed the color of my eyes from a blue to a green,too. I have the chronic muscle aches in my shoulders and neck,too. I haven't tried the microcurrent facials yet. I have heard great things about that and accupuncture. I have been doing CFF since Jan, religiously. I really believe it is helping to firm up my face. That and eating clean as a whistle is what I have been doing, and working out,too. We have to keep plugging along . Hopefully, one day this will all be behond us. I swear, I am throwing a party when I see my "old" face starring back at me in the mirror and my eye sight returns and the dizzy spells subside. xo
