Horrible Experience-will Never Use Again!

I was encouraged to try Dysport by my provider...

I was encouraged to try Dysport by my provider because of the lower cost and "better results".....problems from day one...I was treated at the crow's feet and forehead. I had severe bruising around my right eye the first day, it is just now fading (this is going on week three), second day flu-like symptoms, asthma (I haven't had an asthma flare up in years), muscle/body aches.. first my left eyelid began drooping, next day right eyelid drooped/swelling...my right side looks as if I've had a stroke. I am unable to smile properly, I look like I'm leering and/or scowling. Provider states there is "nothing they can do about it, I just have to wait it out".... I am MISERABLE! Never, ever, again! I do not recommend this product. On the pain rating below, it isn't the injections, it is the pain I am experiencing now.

Best of luck to you.

Hi curiouscat--If you haven't already, check out our Michigan doctor directory for board-certified providers in your area: http://www.realself.com/find/Michigan

Here's the link for Detroit Dysport providers.

Thanks, everyone, for your input. my provider was, sadly not very concerned, said I would just have to wait it out...couldn't explain the aches/pains/flu symptoms. I ended up on a medrol dosepak, and I still have some drooping, and feel like I'm still not smiling properly. It was less money than botox, but I would definitely not do it again. I do agree with Dr. Weiner, I feel the injection technique was not correct. And, to Butterflyin', I don't know how many units were used, but it was definitely less money.

Not sure I was properly informed. I read everything I am given to sign, but these side effects were way beyond anything written.
