What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is also a neuromodulator made from the botulinum toxin type A, the same as BOTOX®. It is used to treatment or eliminate wrinkles in the forehead and frown lines between the eyebrows.
Dysport® can also be used to treat excessive underarm sweating, muscle spasms and symptoms of cervical dystonia, including neck pain and abnormal head position.

How does Dysport® work?
Dysport® works exactly like BOTOX®. When injected into a muscle whose contractions create wrinkles on the skin above, Dysport® blocks the nerve message from the muscle to the brain. When this message is blocked, the brain doesn’t contract the muscle, so the wrinkle doesn’t form.
How long does it take for Dysport® to take effect?
Dysport® works a little quicker than BOTOX. Dysport® takes from 2-5 days to fully paralyze the injected muscle. BOTOX can take up to one week to fully show results.
How long will the results last?
Dysport® delivers results for up to five months.
What are the side effects?
These are the same as with BOTOX. There can be some redness and bruising at injection sites and headaches may occur for the first day or two. Allergic reactions are possible, but we can test you beforehand if you think you could be prone to a reaction.
Can I combine Dysport® with other injectables?
Dysport® is a neuromodulator, so it doesn’t have any effect on wrinkles that are due to sun damage or other factors — static wrinkles. These types of wrinkles show themselves at all times, and are not due to muscle contractions under the skin. Lip lines, laugh lines, and marionette lines all fit into this category, and Dysport® won’t erase them. For static wrinkles, dermal fillers are needed. Dysport® can be combined with any dermal filler in the same session. They simply work on different areas of the face.
