1. Bleeding: It is possible, though unusual, to experience localized bleeding episode during or after the procedure at the site(s) of injection. Do not take any aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications for ten days prior to your DYSPORT® injection appointment.
2. Bruising: Following this procedure, it is not uncommon to bruise at the injection site. Bruising usually resolved in 3-4 days.
2. Infection: Infection is unusual. Should an infection occur, additional treatment including antibiotics may be necessary.
3. Unsatisfactory Results: You may be disappointed with the results of the procedure. The procedure may result in unacceptable visible deformities, loss of function and/or loss of sensation.
4. Allergic Reactions: In rare cases, local allergies to botulinum toxin A preparations (including DYSPORT®) have been reported. Systemic reactions, which are more serious, may result from any medication or substance used during the procedure. Allergic reactions may require additional treatment.
5. Drooping of the Eyelids (Ptosis): This is a rare but transient complication occurring in 1-2% of patients. The incidence can be minimized by positioning post injections. Ptosis usually resolves within several weeks but may take longer.
