On the market for 10 years, Dysport is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for the temporary improvement of the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines) between the eyebrows in adults less than 65 years of age. Dysport, produced by Ipsen, is another neuromodulator similar to Botox. It also contains botulinum toxin type A and works in a similar manner to relax facial muscles and reduce wrinkles.
The main difference between Dysport and Botox lies in their molecular structure and potency, which can lead to variations in dosage and onset of action.
BeautyFix’s favorite, Dysport, is a neuromodulator, which is an injection of a small amount of botulinum toxin that treats frown lines when injected into underlying muscle, causing it to relax and gradually smooth out the appearance of the frown lines between the eyebrows. This toxin is available at all BeautyFix locations.
Frown lines are not just caused by aging, but from constant repetitive movements and muscle contractions, which means they can develop in younger adults too. If you’re starting to notice frown lines that are bothering you, it might be time to ask your specialist about Dysport. When it comes to Dysport, subtle, natural results are what you can expect. This toxin is perfect for treating the frown lines in between your eyebrows for a younger looking you! Dysport will treat the muscles in between your brows while leaving the rest of your face natural and untouched.
Dysport is known for its fast-acting and long-lasting results. Unlike some other botulinum toxin injectables, Dysport can take effect in as little as 24 hours after treatment, with most patients seeing results within 2-3 days. The effects of Dysport can last for up to four months, although this varies between individuals.
Dysport contains smaller molecules than other botulinum toxin products, which means that it can spread more easily and evenly throughout the targeted area. This can result in a more natural-looking appearance, as well as the ability to treat a larger area with fewer injections. Additionally, because Dysport contains fewer complexing proteins than other botulinum toxin products, the likelihood of developing antibodies to the product is reduced, potentially prolonging the effectiveness of the treatment over time.
More than 400,000 unique patients are treated with Dysport each year in the U.S., so know that you’re not alone in seeking treatment. Don’t be afraid to ask your specialist questions! Get on the same page with your injector about the look that you are trying to achieve—it’s important that you have the same goals in mind.
Dysport is a quick (10-20 minute) treatment with minimal downtime, using a relatively small needle. During treatment, you will receive an injection into each of the five points between and over the eyebrows, two injection points above each eyebrow in the corrugator muscle and one injection point between the eyebrows in the procerus muscle. Ask your specialist about any precautions you should take after treatment
In Dysport clinical studies, more than half of users saw an improvement in their frown lines in just 2-3 days. Don’t be afraid of a frozen look! Rather than freezing the treated area, Dysport relaxes the muscles that make you look angry or sad to provide natural-looking results. If you love your new look, talk to your specialist to develop a treatment schedule. As with any botulinum toxin product, you need to wait at least three months between treatments, and results may last up to five months. Don’t be surprised if you’re still loving your look at your next appointment
While Botox is commonly used as a catch-all term for toxins, it is actually a brand of toxin, just like Dysport is. The two products have comparable results, however their activation time and lifespan can vary.
In a clinical study, more than half of Dysport users reported noticeable results in their frown lines after just two to three days!
Results from Dysport can last up to five months, however the lifespan of toxin results will vary for each individual.
Dysport is a very safe injection, however there is always a risk of side effects.

Most patients do not report any side effects.
Pain is minimal with Dysport and other toxin injections. Even without any numbing, most patients feel no more than a pinch.
