Frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines – we have a lot of cute names for something that’s not very attractive: aging. Everyone experiences aging differently, but we all end up with lines and wrinkles that detract from our appearance. There’s good news: Dysport is just one of the options that can help you fight back and rejuvenate your face. Dysport is an injectable similar to Botox that provides temporary improvement for visible signs of aging. It treats facial wrinkles, fine lines, and folds, giving you a youthful appearance and dramatically boosting your self-confidence. It’s also very fast! This is an outpatient procedure, and many patients choose to have it done on their lunch break since there’s no recovery time needed.

Understanding Dysport Treatment

Dysport offers the chance to fight back against the visible signs of aging by erasing fine lines and even alleviating heavy wrinkles and deep folds. Like Botox, Dysport is based on botulinum toxin. Once injected into the skin, it offers fast-acting, natural-looking, long-lasting relief from frown lines, laugh lines, and more. Unlike Botox, Dysport is approved to treat moderate to severe wrinkles, as well.


What Is Botulinum Toxin?

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin produced by bacteria, the same ones responsible for botulism. When isolated and injected under the skin, it blocks muscle contractions, allowing the muscles to relax and providing effective treatment for crow’s feet, laugh lines, forehead lines, and glabellar lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows).

Is Dysport As Good As Botox At Treating Wrinkles?

Dysport is very similar to Botox injections in its making and how it is administered. It is also FDA-approved to treat moderate or severe glabellar lines. The secret behind Dysport’s success is the protein makeup of the injectable. Unlike Botox, it spreads slightly under the skin, treating a larger area and providing more substantial results with each injection.

How Long Does Dysport Usually Last?

Like Botox, a Dysport injection usually lasts around four months. however, many factors affect the results that you see. For instance, the number of units injected into a particular face area will affect how long you see visible improvements in lines and wrinkles. Once the results begin to fade, more injections will be required.

What Are The Injection Sites For Dysport?

While Dysport is FDA-approved for treating glabellar lines, it is frequently used to treat other signs of aging on the face and neck. Some of the most common treatment area options include the following:

Forehead Lines
Over time, the use of the muscles in your forehead to raise and lower your eyebrows creates horizontal lines. In some cases, these can be very deep. Dysport injections can relax the underlying muscles and reduce the visibility of those lines.

Frown Lines
Frown lines, more correctly called glabellar lines, are vertical lines that form between your eyebrows. They’re also sometimes called worry lines, and result from your forehead muscles contracting. Fast-acting Dysport can reduce the visibility of these lines considerably.

Bunny Lines
Bunny lines form on the sides of the nose and can be diagonal or straight. They result from smiling deeply, laughing, and flaring your nostrils. Dysport can relax the nasalis muscle under the skin to help reduce the visibility of your bunny lines.

Masseter Muscle
The masseter muscle is one of four that help you move your jaw to speak and chew and is the primary muscle responsible for pulling the lower jaw up. It can increase in size through chewing, clenching your jaw, and grinding your teeth. Dysport injections can reduce the size of this muscle, giving you a slimmer face.

Lip Flip
Is your upper lip thinning? Perhaps you’ve been contemplating lip fillers to give you a fuller smile. A lip flip with Dysport may be the better solution. It can freeze the muscles above your upper lip, allowing it to roll outward and upward slightly, and creating a plumper, fuller smile.

Crow’s Feet
Crow’s feet form at the corners of the eyes and result from squinting, smiling, and laughing. Over time, they can become deep folds in the skin. Dysport injections in this area relax the underlying muscles, reducing the visibility of crow’s feet and rejuvenating your face.

Neck Bands
Neck bands are vertical bands of muscle and tissue that run from the bottom of the chin toward the chest. Dysport injections can relax the platysma muscle responsible for neck bands, reducing visibility and prominence.

What Our Patients Say

Frequently Asked Questions About Dysport

Curious about botulinum toxin and how it can help reverse the signs of aging? We’ve answered some of the questions we receive most frequently below.

Dysport is often cheaper than Botox because fewer units are needed to achieve the same result. However, Botox may be a better option for treating some lines and wrinkles. There is no one-size-fits-all approach.

We recommend a personalized consultation to examine your lines and wrinkles, discuss your goals, and determine the right treatment or combination of treatments to help you achieve them.

Both Dysport and Botox are considered safe. They are both based on botulinum toxin, and although they have slightly different protein makeups, they are both safe and effective.

Of course, all injectables come with some slight risk of side effects. The most common include redness, discomfort, and slight swelling at the injection site.

While Dysport is only FDA-approved for treating frown lines (glabellar lines), it can be used successfully to treat many different types of lines and wrinkles. We routinely help patients dealing with bunny lines, crow’s feet, neck bands, and deep forehead lines. Dysport is also used in lip flip procedures to relax the masseter muscle.

Dysport begins to work almost immediately, but most patients see visible signs of wrinkle and line reduction within two to four days. However, the full effect will take a bit longer. Most patients will need to wait up to two weeks after the initial injection to see the full benefits.

The most common side effects of Dysport injections are redness, swelling, and mild discomfort at the injection site. However, other potential side effects include nose and throat irritation, headache, eyelid swelling or drooping, nausea, sinus inflammation, and upper respiratory tract infection.
