Dysport After 3 Days

Dysport can take up to 14 days to take full effect, so I would recommend giving it some time. If at 14 days, there still is no noticeable improvement, you should contact the person who performed your injections and possibly have a touch up done. Sometimes you may require more product, but it's best to wait until it has fully taken effect before you add more in order to avoid the risk of ptosis.

I recommend that you wait 1-2 weeks to see the results of Dysport.  Three days is too early to see the effects of Dysport or Botox.

No effect 3 days after Dysport injection

too soon to tell, in general, but it is also dose related. Too little of a dose will mute the effect. Also, understand that Dysport or Botox treat animation lines. If you had the 11's while at rest with no facial muscle activity, then you likely will not see it get better. In that case Dysport to stabilize the wrinkle and a filler to fill in the lines would be needed.

It may take up to a week to see full results

It has only been a few days, you should be patient as it can take up to a week to see full results.  Good luck!

I would recommend a combination of Restylane and Dysport for your first treatment.

When you have a treatment with Dysport it is like hanging wrinkled slacks in a steamy shower.  The wrinkles will usually come out as the skin relaxes, but it may take weeks or months.  This is especially true if the wrinkles are moderate or severe.  If you have both Dysport and a filler like restylane or Perlane at the same time, you will have instant improvement.  Usually you can maintain the improvement by getting Dysport every three to four months before the muscle wake up and cause more wrinkles.

Time to results with Dysport

Both Botox and Dysport take some time to work. I tell my patients that they need four days to ten days to see results. There is great variability and I am not supprised at your results. Be patient

Dysport and Botox for 11's wrinkles

Dysport may start to work by 48 hours though the full effect may take up to a week. After two weeks, if you still see significant 11's, you may need a combination of additional botulinum toxin touch-up injection to better manage dynamic component of the wrinkles and/or fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm or Perlane to address static aspect of the wrinkle lines.

Wait at least 10-14 days for your Dysport results

Although you start seeing the results of Dysport in 2-3 days, it may take 10-14 days to see the full effect. Be patient and see your doctor for a followup after two weeks if you still have some lines that bother you.

You may need additional dosing at that time, if the muscles still have some activity. If the muscles are not moving but the lines are still visible, you may need to consider filler or resurfacing techniques.

Dysport in your 11's

Firstly, three days might not be enough time for a final judgement. You need to give it a little more time. Secondly, those deeper creases are often harder to correct and take longer to "iron" out than do lines elsewhere on the face. I give my patients the hem on an old dress analogy. If you let a hem down on a fairly new dress, one washing and ironing will take out the crease line. However, on an older worn dress it might take several trips through the washer and ironings to make that line disappear. If the dress is really worn out it will improve but don't expect it to be perfect.
