Dysport is an injectable treatment that can be used to correct lines on the face including frown lines, forehead creases, and smile lines around the eyes. Dysport is an alternative to Botox and smoothes out wrinkles to provide you with a more youthful appearance without compromising natural expression.

How does Dysport work?

Dysport works similarly to Botox. It uses an active ingredient that, when injected into the face, temporarily stops muscles from contracting. This prevents the muscles from creating creases and wrinkles that can cause you to look aged. Dysport is a FDA-approved minimally invasive treatment. For those unsatisfied with their Botox treatments or who no longer feel the same effectiveness from Botox, Dysport can be a great alternative.


Dysport is highly effective at smoothing deep lines and wrinkles in the face. If you are looking for a minimally invasive procedure, it may be the correct treatment for you. Some of the benefits of Dysport are as follows:

  • If you have become resistant to Botox injections, Dysport may serve as an effective facial rejuvenation alternative.
  • Compared to Botox, Dysport may provide faster results.
  • There is minimal recovery time, and you will be able to apply makeup instantly or go back to work.
  • Dysport is highly effective at smoothing out facial lines, particularly those around the eyes, between the brows, and on the forehead.
  • Dysport provides quick, noticeable results without you having to undergo an invasive surgical procedure.


Dysport, also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, is an injectable neuromodulator that effectively smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Specifically, Dysport is FDA-approved for treating moderate to severe frown lines, commonly referred to as glabellar lines or “11s,” between the eyebrows. Additionally, it can be used to smooth other expression lines like crow’s feet and forehead creases. 

Dysport is a minimally invasive, quick treatment to receive. It typically only takes around 15 minutes for your aesthetic specialist, Nicole Hill, PA-C to perform. There is minimal downtime or recovery period for Dysport, and you will be able to return to your day as scheduled. However, it is advised that you avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours and massages or facials for a couple of days. Shortly after receiving Dysport, you may experience some swelling and bruising at the injection site, but this should go away in a day or two. You will begin to see beautiful age-defying results within two weeks. These results can last up to four months.

After receiving Dysport, you may experience some discomfort at the injection site that is generally resolved within a day. Other common side effects you may experience are headache, bruising, swelling of the eyelid or eyelid drooping. Contact your doctor if you experience any side effects from your treatment that concern you.

If you are a physically healthy adult and seeking an effective anti-aging non-surgical treatment to smooth deep wrinkles and lines on your face, Dysport is a great option. Given that you have realistic expectations of what can be done with Dysport, it can serve as an excellent solution to your facial concerns.

Dysport and Botox are both effective treatments for reducing wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles without surgery. They both contain botulinum toxin as their main ingredient, but are manufactured differently resulting in potential variations in potency and onset of effect. While both are effective, the amounts of trace protein in each product differ, which may affect their efficacy for certain individuals. Dysport may show results as early as two days after treatment, whereas Botox can take up to two weeks to show full effect. This faster onset of Dysport may be more attractive for those seeking quicker results.
