Like BOTOX®, Dysport is an injectable treatment made from botulinum toxin that smooths facial lines and wrinkles by temporarily relaxing specific facial muscles and preventing them from contracting. Dysport® injections are made from a different dosage of botulinum toxin than BOTOX® and tend to diffuse further from the injection site, requiring fewer injections. Injection session usually last between 10 to 20 minutes and can easily be done during a lunch hour as there is no downtime associated with the treatment. Patients will not lose expressiveness in the treated areas and are generally able to immediately return to their daily routines. Multiple injection sessions may be required in order to achieve a patient’s desired results. Results can typically be seen within one to seven days following an injection session and one treatment of Dysport® will typically last for approximately three to four months.

How does Dysport® work?
Repeated contraction of the facial muscles from making expressions like frowning, squinting, or smiling can cause the formation of wrinkles and lines on the face. Dysport® helps smooth these fines lines and wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles and limiting their contraction. The botulinum toxin found in Dysport® blocks signals from the nerves telling the muscles to contract, which causes the muscles to relax and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the treated areas.
What can Dysport® treat?
- Horizontal frown lines on the forehead
- Vertical lines between the eyes
- Crow’s feet
Are there any side effects?
Potential side effects can include some mild redness, swelling, bruising, or discomfort at the injection site. These side effects are temporary and should resolve on their own. Side effects typically subside within a few days of treatment.
