What Dysport can accomplish

Dysport is very much like the incredibly popular Botox, but differs in its concentration, molecular weight, spreadability, onset, and longevity. Dysport consists of a thinner gel that spreads more easily and delivers results more quickly than Botox. 

However, because of how thin the gel is, more Dysport may be required than Botox to get the same result. Dysport is particularly effective for the:

  • Forehead lines
  • 11’s between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet

Comparing Botox and Dysport


  • Benefits: Effective for treating all areas
  • Visibility: 10 to 14 days
  • Results: 3 to 6 months
  • Possible side effects: Bruising; swelling or pain at the injection site; flu-like symptoms; headache; nausea; redness; temporary facial drooping
  • Cons: Results take longer to appear


  • Benefits: Effective for “last-minute” treatments because results appear quickly; ideal for treating crow’s feet and forehead lines
  • Visibility: 24 hours to 3 days
  • Results: 4 to 6 months
  • Possible side effects: Bruising; swelling or pain at the injection site; flu-like symptoms; muscle weakness; headache; nausea; redness; temporary facial drooping; muscle pain or stiffness; neck or back pain
  • Cons: More product may be needed due to gel thinness

How does Dysport work?

FDA approved since 2009 for cosmetic use, Dysport is a very safe treatment backed by 25 years of clinical use. It is a neuromodulator made from a botulinum toxin that works by causing your facial muscles to relax.

It does this by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles that cause wrinkles. If the muscle cannot contract, the wrinkles cannot be as visible. However, you will still be able to make your familiar facial expressions — as long as you choose a skilled, experienced provider who understands correct dosage.  

Dysport treatment details

Dysport treatments typically take less than 20 minutes. Your face will be cleansed, and the injections will be administered directly into targeted muscles of the face. Immediately following the injections, you will be asked to make various facial expressions so that the Dysport can properly spread and settle. 

Recovery and Results

Dysport requires very little downtime. Some patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site, but these conditions quickly resolve. For a couple of days following treatment, do not rub your face too much, and be gentle when applying cosmetics and topical products.

Avoid hot baths, showers, and saunas after your Dysport injections in Tampa. This will help the Dysport to stay where it’s supposed to. Results will become visible anywhere from one day to three, and these results typically last 4 to 6 months. Once you begin noticing your lines and wrinkles again, you can return for a touch-up treatment. 

Maintaining a natural look with Dysport

Using a muscle relaxer doesn’t mean that you’ll look unnatural. Dysport has the ability to improve lines and wrinkles without making you look “frozen”. If you want to soften the signs of aging on your face but keep your organic good looks, Dysport is an ideal option for you.
