Dysport is a non-surgical, injectable treatment used to smooth and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is made of Botulinum toxin Type A, which works by temporarily relaxing the muscles beneath the face. Dysport injections are effective for treating furrows, creases and marionette lines along the forehead, around the mouth, and near the eyes. Most people who undergo Dysport treatments have lines or wrinkles that are moderate to severe and only minimally responsive to other types of cosmetic treatments.
Did you know…
Dysport has been used in the treatment of lines and wrinkles for decades? Though it did not receive FDA approval until 2009, Dysport has been used in Europe since 1991. The results achieved by Dysport treatments are virtually the same as those of Botox treatments, which is one of the most commonly administered cosmetic treatments performed in the U.S.

What should I expect during a Dysport treatment?
Dysport treatments are performed from the comfort of our clinic. Most treatments take only minutes to complete using a series of tiny injections around targeted facial muscles. Though there may be some initial soreness at the injection site, most people experience little or no bruising after a Dysport treatment. In most cases, patients can return to work or other activities immediately after treatment. It is important, however, to avoid applying pressure to the treatment site or sleeping on it for the first 24 hours after getting Dysport injections.
How long do Dysport treatment results last?
Most people notice improvements in lines and wrinkles within just three to five days of receiving a Dysport injection, although maximum benefits may not be realized for 10 days or more. Outcomes vary from person to person, but most people enjoy the benefits of Dysport for approximately three months.
