Smooth your worry lines away with Dysport, a safe and effective wrinkle treatment with virtually no downtime. If you are bothered by early signs of aging, this might be the perfect treatment for you!
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a newer cosmetic injectable that has received FDA approval to treat facial wrinkles. More specifically, it is a neuromodulator or botulinum toxin injectable that temporarily relaxes the facial muscles to prevent the formation of dynamic wrinkles. Facial expressions like squinting and laughing cause the muscles to contract, pulling the skin together into folds. These folds gradually develop into stubborn lines known as dynamic wrinkles. Dysport can create natural-looking results and dramatic improvement in your appearance by targeting these early signs of aging.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport uses a medically sourced neurotoxin called botulinum toxin type A to target overactive muscles. Botulinum toxin blocks chemical signals that signal the muscles to contract. The result is a temporary muscle relaxation that limits muscle movement and smooths the overlying skin to prevent and treat fine lines and wrinkles.
What Areas Are Commonly Treated with Dysport?
Dysport has a thinner consistency than Botox, making it a great option for large treatment areas like the forehead. Dysport is most commonly used to treat glabellar lines (frown lines between the brows), crow’s feet around the eyes, and horizontal forehead lines (horizontal rhytids).
Dysport Results & Recovery
After Dysport treatment, patients can return to work and do most of their normal activities. However, strenuous activity and direct sun exposure or heat should be avoided for 1-2 days to minimize swelling and bruising, two of the most common side effects. Mild redness and tenderness to the touch are also common but all these effects will subside within a few days.
Although you might see some immediate improvement in the appearance of your wrinkles, it will take about 10 days for the results to fully develop. Dysport lasts about 3-6 months, and you can receive additional injections to maintain your wrinkle-free youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do the results of Dysport last?
Dysport lasts 3-6 months, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the product.
If I've had Botox injections before, can I switch to Dysport?
Yes. Since Botox and Dysport work similarly, these products are interchangeable. Since the dosing is different, it is important to find a cosmetic specialist experienced with both types of injectables.
Will Dysport make me lose all facial expressions?
Properly executed Dysport treatment at our office will not cause you to lose facial expression. You can expect natural-looking results without the “frozen” look.
How long does the Dysport injection take?
Dysport injections only take 5-15 minutes.
Does Dysport hurt?
Most patients do not find Dysport injections to be painful, but we understand the apprehension of first-time patients. We use advanced techniques to minimize or eliminate pain during injections.
Is Dysport safe?
Yes. Dysport has been used for many years in Europe and has passed strict FDA guidelines in the United States, including clinical studies.
Can dysport lift your eyebrows?
Yes. Strategically placed Dysport injections can elevate the brows for a non-surgical brow lift.
What are the risks associated with Dysport?
There is a small risk that the botulinum toxin product can spread to other areas of the face and cause swallowing or breathing problems. Neck pain, muscle weakness, headache, visual impairment, dry mouth, and eyelid sagging are also possible, but these complications are mainly a concern for off-label medical treatments.
