Dysport is an injection containing abobotulinumtoxinA(Botulinum toxin type A). AbobotulinumtoxinA is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.

Dysport is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with procerus and corrugator muscle activity in adult patients less than 65 years of age.

During treatment

Mild discomfort may be experienced, but the process isn’t painful. We will cleanse injection sites to work and we may offer numbing agents as requested by patient.

The required number of Dysport units varies by patients and these will be injected below the skin’s dermis layer.

We will smooth out the Dysport injection to ensure it’s in all the desire places.

After treatment

You may expect to experience mild symptoms such as slight tenderness, temporary redness, swelling, and in rare cases, slight bruising on injection sites. This is temporary, and ice packs will help to relieve any swelling and discomfort you may experience post treatment.

We will schedule complimentary follow-up appointments to discuss how the treatment went and if any retouch is needed.

Enjoy your unique results!

Frequently Asked Questions About Dysport Treatments

What is Dysport?

Dysport is a prescription injection administered by a licensed healthcare professional to treat moderate to severe frown lines (those wrinkles between the eyebrows).

Medically, it’s a botulinum neurotoxin (abobotulinumtoxinA), an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent. It temporarily prevents specific muscle movements that cause frown lines.

What are possible side effects of Dysport ?

How can I make sure my Dysport is authentic?

​The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea. For a full list of potential side effects.

There’s only one FDA-approved Dysport. Be sure to ask your specialist to see the packaging of your product to make sure it’s authentic.

Look for the full product name on the front and sides of the packaging.
Make sure the seal on the product is intact.
Make sure the product isn’t expired.
Check the Galderma logo at the top left corner of the package.
Find the barcode and distribution statement on the bottom of the package.

Is Dysport different from BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Dysport® and Botox are both made from botulinum toxin type A. All botulinum toxins have the same mechanism of action: blocking the release of acetylcholine (ACh) and preventing the muscles from contracting to maintain the aesthetic effect. However, the dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product that you may have previously used. 

Where should Dysport be injected?

Dysport is primarily used for correcting glabellar lines, the frown lines between your eyebrows. Dysport is a great option for those who have moderate to severe frown lines. Botox, on the other hand, can be used to treat many different types of wrinkles, including crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, and laugh lines.
