What Can Happen After Too High Doses of Dysport Are Given into Masseter?

I received 150 Units of Dysport in to masseter on each side 6 days ago. I can not smile, my speach gets affected already. Is tat going to get worse? I am not feeling well in general, nauseous and very fatigue.

Did I get too much Dysport into jaw muscle

I usually don't inject more than 75 units into each side of the jaw muscle when injecting Dysport. If you cannot move your mouth correctly at this point and can't smile or talk correctly, it shouldn't get worse, but you should expect this to last for a few months until the Dysport wears off. I would suggest you contact your doctor and be seen as well.


Call your doctor today, explain your symptoms and preferably get examined by your doctor or follow their instructions
