Can Dysport really help me prevent wrinkles?

Dysport can prevent wrinkles by relaxing the muscles contributing to the onset of expression lines. Relaxing these muscles can reduce the appearance of frown lines and prevent new wrinkles from forming. However, to maintain youthful, wrinkle-free skin, you should start undergoing Dysport treatments in your early 20s, i.e., before you develop permanent wrinkles. With early intervention, you can maintain smooth skin in your 30s and beyond.


Dysport treats the following:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Glabellar lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet or laugh lines around the eyes
  • Bunny lines around the bridge of the nose
  • Smoker’s lines around the lips
  • Other expression lines on the face

Eliminate glabellar lines with a few injections

Dysport is an injectable that temporarily improves the look of moderate to severe glabellar lines, also known as “11” lines or frown lines, between the eyebrows. These are the lines that can make you look angry or stressed even when you’re not. Dysport works by targeting specific muscles that contribute to frown lines. It works by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle, causing the muscle to relax. This results in a temporary improvement in the look of the lines.

While Dysport is FDA-approved for correcting glabellar lines, its off-label uses extend to other dynamic wrinkles on the face, such as the forehead lines and crow’s feet. Dysport is most effective on dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement. Static wrinkles, on the other hand, are caused by sun damage, aging, genetics, and the gradual loss of collagen and elastin. Because Dysport only relaxes the muscles, it can’t improve static wrinkles.

Benefits of your Dysport treatment:

  • Reduce unwanted dynamic wrinkles
  • Minimize excessive facial contractions
  • Minimally invasive treatment performed with injections
  • No harsh side effects or complications
  • No downtime — resume daily activities immediately
  • Improve overall confidence and self-esteem
  • Reverse the signs of aging

What to expect from your Dysport treatment

Dysport treatment is quick and easy. The injector will clean your skin and administer Dysport into the muscles that contribute to frown lines using ultrafine needles. The injection takes a few seconds, but the entire treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes.

The side effects and recovery after Dysport

The most common side effects of Dysport are temporary and mild. They include bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site. These side effects usually resolve within a few days. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after your treatment — no downtime.

What you can expect from Dysport results

Dysport results are usually visible within a few days, and the full effect is typically seen within two weeks. The results of Dysport typically last three to four months, following which you need additional maintenance sessions. Most patients opt for 3 to 4 sessions a year.
