What is Dysport™?
Dysport™ is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and also reduce the appearance of crows feet and forehead wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them to occur. Similar to Botox®Cosmetic – Dysport™ stops the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
What is Dysport™ Used For?
Dysport™ – similar to Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein administered in a simple, nonsurgical procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines in people ages 18-65. Dysport™ is used to treat:
- Frown lines between the brows (glabellar)
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crows feet
How Dysport™ Works
Dysport™ is a neuromuscular blocking agent that works by temporarily reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed between your brows, on your forehead or crows feet. Dysport™ is injected directly into these muscles and works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form. Within a couple of days, you’ll see a marked improvement that can last up to four months.

What Should I Expect During My Dysport™ Treatment?
The most common areas treated with Dysport™ are the muscles between your brows, forehead and crows feet. Generally, each patient can expect the following:
- Treatments are performed in the privacy and comfort of Aura Skin Spa, by a board certified physician.
- Our physician gently administers several tiny injections of Dysport™directly into the muscles that cause those moderate to severe frown lines to form between the brows on the forehead or crows feet.
- No anesthesia is required, although Aura’s physician may choose to numb the area with a cold ice pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
- The procedure takes no more than 10-20 minutes for the physician to perform.
- Patients can immediately return to work or their normal daily activities.
- Onset is fast, within a couple days, you will start to see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines where the Dysport™ was administered.
- Improvement with Dysport™ typically last up to four months. Results vary with each patient.
After treatment with Dysport™ results are typically seen in a couple days and last up to four months. Results vary with each patient. To maintain results, Dysport™ is recommended every four months. If patients choose to not continue treatments, the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows, crows feet or forehead wrinkles will gradually look like they did before treatment.
