Bad Results and Swelling After Dysport

I had dysport done on Dec 2, 2009 on my forehead and directly below my eyes. Ten days later I noticed that about an inch and a half directly below my eyes there are two swollen spots on each side. It looks like the skin dropped down and this caused it has also to look like those areas are swollen.

Also both tops of my check bones are swollen. My face has looked like this for almost 2 months now and no sign of improving. Will it go away? Will my face ever look normal again? Please help!

Dyport injection requires skill

I am sorry you had a bad experience with Dysport, but it sounds like injector error to me. Dysport is an excellent treatment in the hands of those who are qualified to inject it. I am not sure where it was injected below the eyes but it sounds like they weakened muscles that should not have been injected. This will wear off and is not permanent. See a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon next time.

This sounds as if you chose someone who does not know their anatomy!  I wish you a speedy recovery and please consult a physician if you continue to have issues and for future care.

You had a bad result not from the DYSPORT but from the inexperienced injector.

Was it a doctor? What is the specialty of the person who injected you?

Your results are bad because the Dysport was injected in the wrong places, and some muscles are weak now. It will last 5- 6 months.
