Dysport: An Excellent Alternative to BOTOX

Particularly good for correcting crow’s feet and forehead creases, Dysport is an injectable treatment that causes muscle contractions to become weaker — thereby temporarily stopping them from being able to create wrinkles. Dysport is very similar to BOTOX, but tends to work more quickly. 

Key Benefits of Dysport

  • Especially good for forehead lines, vertical lines between the brows, and crow’s feet
  • Is able to treat larger areas more effectively than BOTOX
  • Subtle and natural-looking, with a very even spreading ability
  • Treatments are fast and convenient, with very little downtime required
  • Can be used as a preventative for future wrinkles
  • Is an ideal option for patients who have grown “immune” to BOTOX
  • Results last up to four months

How Dysport Works

Dysport works by temporarily stopping communication from the nerves to the muscles. When the muscle cannot be “told” to make a wrinkle, they smooth out.


Results from Dysport are noticeable within 2-3 days after your treatment and can last up to six months.

What are Dysport Treatments Like?

Just like BOTOX, Dysport treatments are quick, simple, and convenient. Your skin will be cleansed and prepped, and then we will administer the injections. The amount and locations of the injections will depend on how deep your wrinkles are and the strength of your muscles. The needle is very fine, and most patients find the injections to be very tolerable. It feels like a small pinch. Once your injections are finished, you’ll be asked to make different facial expressions so that the product disperses correctly.

Downtime and Results: What to Expect

The most common side effects of Dysport include mild and temporary swelling, bruising, tenderness, inflammation, headache, and nausea. If you’re worried about any of these, we encourage you to talk to us about them during your consultation.

After a Dysport treatment, you’ll be able to return to most activities. However, for the best results, we encourage you to refrain from the following:

  • Applying makeup (for the rest of the day)
  • Activities that cause your head to face downward (for the rest of the day)
  • Lying down or reclining (for the rest of the day)
  • Drinking alcohol (for 24 hours) 
  • Rubbing or scrubbing your face (for 48 hours)
  • Taking blood thinners (for 48 hours)
  • Sweating, including hot yoga, hot showers, saunas, hot tubs, baths, etc. (for 48 hours)
  • Undergoing any type of tanning or facials (for one week)
  • Performing exercise (for one week)
