Dysport works very similar to Botox in the manner in which it prevents and treats wrinkles and fine lines. It is a great option that is effective at smoothing and elevating your aesthetic appearance. With no down time, and the ability to have the injections completed in the spa, Dysport is the perfect option for facial and skin tightening while treating wrinkles.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is Dysport?

Dysport is an injection to treat and prevent moderate to severe facial wrinkles. Medically, it’s a botulinum neurotoxin (AbobotulinumtoxinA), an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent. Dysport temporarily prevents specific muscle movements that cause frown lines.


How does Dysport work?

Dysport works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles thus ceasing the muscles from contracting. By relaxing this muscle activity, Dysport aids in the treatment and prevention of fine lines and wrinkles, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance by tightening the skin.


Is Dysport different from Botox?

Dysport and Botox are both made from botulinum toxin type A. As all botulinum toxins do, they both operate by blocking the release of acetylcholine and prevent the muscles from contracting to maintain an aesthetically pleasing effect with facial and skin tightening. However, the dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and therefore cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin.


When will I see the results of Dysport?

The results of Dysport are usually most noticeable within 2 – 3 days.  Though results vary, there is typically a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.


How long does the results of Dysport last?

One treatment of Dysport can last for up to 4 months, but this can also depend on the individual and amount administered.


How much Dysport will I need?

Dysport recommends a dosage of a total of 50 units injected equally among the specific muscles for the treatment of glabellar lines (frown lines between your eyebrows). It’s important to note that a dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and dosage cannot be gauged by the amount used with other comparable products. During your appointment, our licensed providers will assess the muscle density, what your expectations are and will base your dosage accordingly.
