Dysport (aka abobotulinumtoxin A) is an injectable that offers temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrow, on forehead or sides of eyes. It has been approved by FDA for aesthetic use since April 2009. For men and women who are seeking a natural look, Dysport is proven to assist in smoothing the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles. Dysport is very similar to Botox, but has smaller molecules so the unit count is different. Similar to Botox Cosmetic, Dysport is injected directly into the target facial sites, preventing underlying muscle tissue from contracting.
What can I expect during my appointment?
Dysport is injected into the skin with a fine needle. During this 15-20 minute procedure, most patients experience only mild discomfort, so we may apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the session. The amount of Dysport that is used will vary, depending on the degree of the frown lines being addressed. After the treatment is finished, you can return to normal activities immediately.

What can I expect from the results?
Though results vary, most patients can typically see a noticeable improvement in their facial lines within a couple of days. The full effect is usually seen after one week. One treatment is known to last for several months. For ongoing results, we recommend a treatment plan of injections every 3-4 months. This will allow you to keep seeing positive results before the effects of the previous injection fade.
