The Latest Cosmetic Treatment for Wrinkles

Dysport® is made from a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, the same active ingredient found in BOTOX®. However, Dysport® has a slightly different formulation and is known for its ability to spread more easily, making it a popular choice for treating larger areas of the face. The treatment works by relaxing the muscles in the treated area, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

What Is Dysport®?

Dysport® is a type of botulinum toxin that temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The active ingredient in Dysport® is abobotulinumtoxinA, which is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This protein blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which is responsible for transmitting nerve signals to the muscles. When injected into specific areas of the face, Dysport® blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract, which in turn causes them to relax and become less active. This reduces wrinkles and fine lines on the face, creating a smoother and more youthful appearance.

The Dysport® Advantages

Quick and Easy Treatment

Dysport® injections are quick and easy, taking only 15-20 minutes to administer. Patients can return to their regular activities immediately after the treatment.

Safe and Effective

Dysport® has been used for cosmetic purposes for many years and has a proven safety record. It is a well-tolerated treatment that is suitable for most people.

Long-Lasting Results

The effects of Dysport® can last up to four months, making it an excellent choice for individuals who want to maintain a youthful appearance without undergoing more invasive procedures.

Natural-Looking Results

Dysport® injections provide natural-looking results that don't look "frozen" or "overdone." The treatment simply relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, resulting in a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

Dysport® Treatment: What to Expect


Before the treatment, you will have an initial consultation with the Skin Care Doctors' provider to discuss your medical history and any allergies. The provider will also examine your facial muscles to determine the appropriate injection sites and dosage for the Dysport® treatment. Be sure to inform your provider of any medical conditions, allergies, or medications you take before receiving the treatment. You must also disclose if you have received any other botulinum toxin injections within the past four months.


During the treatment, you will be seated comfortably while the provider uses a fine needle to inject the Dysport into the targeted muscles. The procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete, and you can resume regular activities immediately afterward. Most patients report minimal to no pain during the treatment, but some may experience mild discomfort or a slight burning sensation at the injection site. Ice or a topical numbing cream applied beforehand can help alleviate any discomfort.

After Your Treatment

After receiving Dysport injections, you can expect some mild side effects, such as swelling, redness, and bruising, which usually subside within a few hours to a few days. Refrain from rubbing or massaging the treated area to prevent spreading the medication to other muscles.

Our medical providers also recommend avoiding strenuous activities, alcohol consumption, and exposure to heat or cold for at least 24 hours after the treatment. It is recommended to avoid lying down or bending over for four hours after the treatment to prevent the medication from spreading to unintended muscles.

Results from Dysport® treatment can be seen within a few days and can last up to four months. It works by relaxing the muscles that cause these lines, leaving the skin looking smoother and more youthful. Scheduling follow-up appointments with your Skin Care Doctors’ provider can help you maintain the desired results.
