Dysport is a non-invasive injectable solution for moderate to severe frown lines. It works in much the same way as BOTOX® to block contraction of muscles and resulting wrinkles, with the key difference being smaller proteins which are able to penetrate more quickly. Results are visible in 1-2 days, compared to the week needed to see results following a BOTOX® injection, and can last up to 4 months.

Vertical lines between the brows caused by frequent tightening of muscles, leading to an aged or overly severe appearance. Every time we laugh, frown, concentrate, or narrow our eyes in the sun, muscle contraction causes the skin to crease. As skin ages and elasticity decreases, these creases can become deeper, lingering even when the face is more relaxed.
Like BOTOX®, Dysport works by temporarily blocking the signal from nerve to muscle, preventing contraction in the targeted area, and smoothing the skin above it. Regular treatment can have transformative effects as the patient “un-learns” the muscular habit that caused the wrinkles in the first place.
Following an initial consultation, the treatment will be applied in a single injection to the brow area. You may feel a slight prick, but no topical anesthesia will be necessary. From start to finish the entire process takes about 20 minutes and results are usually visible within 48 hours. Maintenance is recommended every 4 months.
Some slight bruising at the injection site is possible.
