How long does it take for Dysport to wear off?

I am 49 years old and have a long face with a square jaw. As I've aged my jawline has become squarer and puffier giving me a very rectangular shaped face. 3 weeks ago I had dysport injected into my masseter muscles which has made my lower face drop even more. I now look worse than before.

Duration of Dysport

It should last about 3 to 4 months. Everything should return to normal after that. Botox is about the same.

Thank you for your question. Sorry you did not get the results you were seeking. Dysport lasts about 3 to 4 months and will gradually wear off in that time. Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for other treatment options.

I appreciate your question.
About 3-4 months.  Please follow up with injecting MD to discuss your results.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

best of luck!

Dysport treatment

I'm sorry you are unhappy with your Dysport treatment.  The product results usually last approximately 3 months.  The effects fade gradually over that time.  You may want to contact your injector to discuss your concerns.

When does Dysport wear off in masseter area

 I often find that in the masseter region, it may take longer than several months for this to wear off completely. I usually say roughly 6 months for it to completely wear off.
 One other concern is that if you feel like you've been losing volume with the aging process,  rather than jaw reduction with Dysport, you may want to consider using fillers to lift in the midface region or Sculptra to try to replenish the facial volume that we lose during the aging process.

How long for Dysport to wear off?

I would say that there can be some effect from Dysport for 3-6 months.  It is possible that there may be other treatments that could address your facial issue better than Dysport.
Surgical lifts can sometimes help as can injectable fillers or surgically placed implants.

Treating the aging face needs good analysis of the aging process. Aging is very individualized and treatment should be individualized. A facelift can not be substituted by fillers and disport.
Dysport effect can last between 3 months and 6 months.
