Dysport® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used:

  • to treat the abnormal head position and neck pain that happens with cervical dystonia (CD) in adults
  • to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults younger than 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary)

CD is caused by muscle spasms in the neck. These spasms cause abnormal position of the head and often neck pain. After DYSPORT® is injected into muscles, those muscles are weakened for up to 12 to 16 weeks or longer. This may help lessen your symptoms.

Frown lines (wrinkles) happen because the muscles that control facial expression are used often (muscle tightening over and over). After DYSPORT® is injected into the muscles that control facial expression, the medicine stops the tightening of these muscles for up to 4 months.

Dr Monaco is an A-list professional. I have met cosmetic surgeons all over the city and she is absolutely the most candid, ETHICAL, attentive, and highly skilled medical professional I have met. She takes time with patients and really listens. I first met her in 2007 when she was in a top fellowship program at one of the hospitals. At that time she told me I did not need the procedure I was consulting on. I went back in 2012, not only did she still have my 2007 records from BEFORE she was in private practice, she also discouraged me again from what she felt was unnecessary surgery. She does excellent work on fillers and more temporary cosmetic work, and I have heard nothing but raves about her surgical skills. She is truly impressive, totally cool and really someone you can trust to help you make timely decisions and invest wisely in your appearance. I would recommend consulting with her on any procedure you are considering. She keeps it real.
