Dysport is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. Get to know more about Dysport, including how it works and what to understand before you start treatment.

For up to *four entire months, you could have the look that you love. Dysport works to block the signal from the nerve to the muscles, resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. It's important to note that you should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days. Treatment with prescription Dysport can temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines. Treatment generally takes just 10 to 20 minutes, although treatment times can vary from person to person.

Over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. But, with just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport blocks 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.

The most common side effects of Dysport treatment are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea. You should wait at least 90 days between Dysport treatments.

In 3 clinical studies of people whose frown lines were rated "moderate" or "severe" by a doctor before their treatment with Dysport:

  • *30 days after treatment, in a majority of patients treated with Dysport (55%, 52%, and 60% in each of the 3 studies vs. 0% of patients treated with placebo), the patients and their doctors both thought their frown lines improved by at least 2 grades to a rating of "none" or "mild" at maximum frown.
  • *30 days after treatment, the majority of patients treated with Dysport (88%, 85%, and 86% in each of the 3 studies, vs. 4%, 4%, and 0%, respectively, of patients treated with placebo) had their frown lines rated by a doctor as "none" or "mild" with at least a 1-grade improvement at maximum frown.
  • *30 days after treatment, the majority of patients treated with Dysport (74%, 79%, and 82% in each of the 3 studies, vs. 9%, 1%, and 2%, respectively, of patients treated with placebo) rated their own frown lines as "none" or "mild" with at least a 1-grade improvement at maximum frown.
