Eliminate the Signs of Stress

Frown lines, also known as glabellar lines, are the vertical lines that occur between your eyebrows when you’re frowning or upset. Since they usually appear when you’re upset, they’re also known as the angry 11s. True to the name, frown lines can make it seem like you’re constantly angry, which can negatively affect your social and professional lives. With Dysport, we can suppress unwanted signs of stress and frustration with a few simple injections!

What is Dysport?

Dysport is a cosmetic injection capable of suppressing unwanted facial wrinkles between your eyebrows. With a few strategic injections between the eyebrows, Dysport can temporarily suppress and soften the frown lines and make you look more youthful. Dysport is FDA-approved for the correction of moderate to severe glabellar lines, but it can also be used on other facial wrinkles, such as the forehead lines, crow’s feet, and bunny lines.

Dysport Treats:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Glabellar between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Bunny lines around the bridge of the nose
  • Perioral lines around the lips
  • Chin creases, also known as a cobblestone chin
  • Banding on the neck

How Dysport Works

Dysport is a wrinkle relaxer/neuromodulator, i.e., a cosmetic injection made of the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A. When injected into targeted facial muscles, Dysport can temporarily block communications between nerve endings and the muscles. This procedure temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles responsible for your unwanted facial wrinkles, thus smoothening the wrinkles and taking years off your face. The location of the injections and the number of units depend on your goals.

Benefits of Dysport:

  • Minimally invasive treatment
  • Only involves a few simple injections
  • Minimal discomfort during the treatment
  • No harsh side effects or complications
  • Addresses the root cause of wrinkles
  • Prevents the onset of new facial wrinkles
  • No post-treatment downtime

Dysport FAQs

What’s the difference between Dysport and Botox?

Dysport and Botox belong to the same category of cosmetic injections — neuromodulators. They contain the same active ingredient, work similarly, and produce similar results. Botox and Dysport may have small variations in the formula and additional proteins, but the results are comparable. Some say Dysport results appear faster, but they’re similar in most ways.

Can Dysport prevent wrinkles?

If you start undergoing Dysport treatments in your early 20s, you can delay or prevent the onset of facial wrinkles. That’s because Dysport injections prevent the overuse of the facial muscles responsible for your wrinkles, thus preventing the onset of expression lines.

What happens during the Dysport treatment?

During your treatment, the medical provider will cleanse your facial skin, apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort, and inject the appropriate units of Dysport into the targeted facial muscles. The number of injections depends on your goals. The entire treatment concludes within 30 minutes.

What are the side effects of Dysport?

Dysport involves minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, and numbness. The side effects dissipate within a few days.

Is there any downtime after Dysport?

Dysport doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately after your treatment, but strenuous activities should be avoided for a day.

When will I see the results of Dysport?

You will see the results of your Dysport treatment within 2 weeks. The results start appearing within 3 days and continue improving for 2 weeks.

How long will the Dysport results last?

The Dysport results last for 3 to 4 months, following which you need maintenance treatments.

How many Dysport sessions do I need?

Most patients undergo 3 to 4 Dysport sessions annually to maintain youthful skin.
