Injections to Treat Lines Between the Eyebrows
Now you can soften the lines between your eyebrows that make you look older. As a double board-certified Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Killingsworth or Dr. Cristen Catignani selects injectable products that safely and effectively meet the unique needs of their patients. One of the most common cosmetic concerns for men and women is the appearance of lines between the eyebrows. These wrinkles and creases, known as frown lines, are caused by the continuous contraction of muscles that are used for some facial expressions, such as frustration and stress. Over time, the skin is permanently creased, so you always look unhappy and aged. Dysport® works by paralyzing the muscles in the eyebrow area so that the skin relaxes, thus softening the lines and creases.

Evaluation for Dysport® Treatments
Dysport® contains botulinum toxin Type A, a special toxin that has been proven to paralyze facial muscles safely when administered correctly. As a double board-certified Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Killingsworth and certified Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Catignani, are highly experienced with Dysport® injections, so they know how much of the product to use and the precise injection sites that will minimize unwanted side effects. Even with this level of experience and skill, Dr. Killingsworth and Dr. Catignani recognize that Dysport® is not a viable solution for every patient. The treatment is recommended for patients who:
- Have moderate to severe glabellar lines (lines and creases between the eyebrows)
- Do not need surgery to soften the lines and wrinkles
- Are under 65 years old
- Do not have a history of certain allergies or medical conditions
- Are comfortable with the non-permanent results and follow-up treatments
The Dysport® Procedure
Dysport® is injected into the skin with a very tiny gauge needle. Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani may apply a topical numbing cream after cleaning the treatment area with rubbing alcohol. If you are particularly sensitive to injections, he may use lidocaine to numb the area. Dr. Killingsworth and Dr. Catignani typically administer Dysport® at 1 to 5 injections sites that are between and above the eyebrows.
For the first 24 hours, you may notice minor bleeding and tenderness where the needle was inserted into your skin. After two days, you will see a significant reduction in the severity of the frown lines. Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani may recommend follow-up treatments every 3 to 6 months.
