What is Dysport?

Dysport is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It works by relaxing the muscles responsible for causing these wrinkles, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance. Similar to Botox, Dysport is commonly used for cosmetic purposes to enhance the overall look and rejuvenate the skin.

How does Dysport work?

Dysport works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. It’s a type of botulinum toxin, similar to Botox. When injected into specific areas of the face, Dysport blocks nerve signals to the targeted muscles, preventing them from contracting. This relaxation of the muscles results in a smoother appearance of wrinkles and lines. The procedure is non-invasive and usually takes just a short time to administer, with results becoming noticeable within a few days.

How long is the treatment?

The effects typically last around four to five months, after which additional treatments can be considered to maintain the desired appearance.

Before receiving Dysport treatment, there are a few things you can expect:

  • Consultation: You will have a consultation with a medical professional to discuss your goals, medical history, and any concerns you might have. This is an opportunity to ask questions and ensure that Dysport is the right choice for you.


  •   Preparation: Your healthcare provider will give you instructions on how to prepare for the treatment. This might include avoiding certain medications or supplements that could increase the risk of bruising.
  • Assessment: The medical professional will assess the areas you want to treat and determine the appropriate dosage and injection sites based on your facial anatomy.

  • Procedure: The treatment itself involves injecting Dysport into the targeted muscles using a very fine needle. The injections are relatively quick and usually cause minimal discomfort.
  • Post-Treatment Guidelines: After the procedure, you'll receive instructions on how to care for the treated areas. This might include avoiding strenuous exercise and certain activities for a brief period to minimize the risk of spreading the toxin.

  • Possible Side Effects: You might experience some mild side effects, such as temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. These usually subside within a few days.

  • Results: The effects of Dysport gradually become noticeable over the course of a few days to a week. It takes time for the toxin to affect the targeted muscles and for the wrinkles to smooth out.
