Pros: Super, super fast, cheap
Cons: I'm not sure about the being frozen thing
I'm in my early 30's and I had Dysport a few days ago for horizontal forehead lines, which only showed up during expression, and the lines between the eyebrows/above the nose, which showed a very slight bunching even at rest.
The doc called it "preventative." It started to take effect VERY quickly and this is what worries me. Within 8 hours the muscle action in the horizontal lines was really reduced... like when i was in early 20's, or even teenager, or the way I would look after a long night of sleep (and not using the muscles). I would have preferred it to stay like this as it was a really youthful and natural look... made my whole face seem younger.
I loved it. So my first question is, is there a way to dose to have this be the final result? 24 hours after the injection, the area between the eyebrows/above the nose started to relax, the forehead area was a little too quiet for my tastes.
I'm now exactly 2 days post-injection and I dislike how the forehead moves (or, rather, doesn't move) when I make expressions. The area between the eyebrows is perfect (the way the forehead area was 8 hours after the injection) but I guess this will soon be a stiff area, which will really sadden me.
Interestingly, I looked younger and better 8 hours after the injection. Suppose I'll have to update with the final results and longevity and responses from other people.
Started to work super-fast (8 hours) and now, 48 hours later, I feel too frozen. How do you know when you have the full effect? I can still move my eyebrows--incrementally. If it takes 10 days to get the full effect, should I expect to lose all movement? And another question, so that I can stop worrying about droopy eyes. If this was going to be effect, would I have seen some small sign of it? Or can this pop up anytime during that 10 day period?
