Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are experiencing this. The good news is this is not permanent. However, the only treatment is time. It will take an estimated 3-4 months to return back to pre-injection state.
Droopy eyelid after Dysport injection
Hi and thank you for sharing your concern! What you are
experiencing is eyebrow ptosis and it can happen due to so many factors such
as improper Dysport dosing or improper location of injection. Sometimes due to
the form of anatomy of the forehead, eyelid and muscle strength, the patient might
not be a candidate to begin with to get Dysport or Botox injection. I
personally see hundreds of patients every week who want to get Botox or Dysport,
and after examining the patients in some cases I see that the patient is not a candidate
for Botox or Dysport and I let them know and advise them against doing the
treatment. The good news is that the results usually last for 3 to 5
months and it will slowly wear off and there shouldn't be any long-lasting
issues. To avoid facing similar issues please make sure to share the experience
you had with your physician in future whenever considering Botox or Dysport.
It is temporary, which is great but you may want to avoid this or have it done differently in the future.
Dysport is a great treatment and you will likely love the results if it is done correctly, but sometimes the areas are not perfect for Dysport and it is better to consider something like Botox instead (or a completely different injection technique). Sorry your experience wasn't good but don't give up on it totally.
It is not specifically the dysport, more the fact that your frontalis muscle (makes you look surprised) has been botoxed so you cant lift your brows easily anymore. Lifting your brow lifts your eyelids away from your lash line. Hence the problem.We call this compensated brow ptosis and is very common. LAdies often notice it as they cant put their eyeshadow on after botox or dysport. The effect will pass after 10-14 days but if not, a drop of dysport under the brow can help remedy the problem. Hope that helps. Adam Goodwin
