Dysport is a medication called a neuromodulator or neurotoxin. It is a quick, painless injection used to soften or relax wrinkles and muscles. Dysport has many uses that can be customized for anyone!

Where can Dysport be used? Dysport is mostly injected in the facial muscles to relax wrinkles. Popular injection sites are the frown lines or 11s, crows feet, or forehead lines.

How Does Dysport Work?

Dysport works well because it utilizes a refined form of botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze muscle activity, effectively smoothing wrinkles. It blocks the nerve signals necessary for muscle contraction, resulting in a softer, more relaxed facial expression.

What Are The Benefits of Dysport?

Dysport offers rapid results in reducing the appearance of lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Its formulation allows for a natural look, not "frozen," distinguishing it from other injectables like Botox.

Are Dysport results immediate? Not exactly but you may notice the relaxation effects within a couple of days after your treatment.

Ideal Dysport candidates include younger adults who wish to prevent deep wrinkles from forming, as well as those wishing to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and lines.
