What Is Dysport?
Dysport is mainly used in the treatment of glabellar lines – also known as frown lines, the vertical lines between your eyebrows. Dysport has a tendency to spread, which can look more natural when applied to the right places.
What are the Benefits?
Results depend on the area treated. Wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes may become smoother, your brow may be lifted, and your eyelid may become more opened. Your overall facial expression will be one of greater relaxation and alertness. Wrinkle reduction varies among patients, but improvement typically lasts 3-4 months before another treatment is necessary.
Why Choose Us for Your Dysport Injections?

Our experts provide an array of injection services such as Botox, Xeomin and Dysport that all reduce the appearance of wrinkles and give your face and body a smoother and younger appearance.
The goal is simple – enhance your natural beauty by using minimally invasive and painless techniques. We customize all our treatments to your specific needs, helping you feel relaxed and comfortable.
What to expect during your Botox treatment
Your face will be cleaned, and Dysport will be injected into muscles in your desired area using a very fine needle. You may need injections in different locations, but it will depend on the area being treated. We may also ask you to move the muscles in your face so we can find the place to insert the injections.
The whole process will usually only take about 10 minutes. You will start to see results in about 2 to 3 working days, but it will take 2 to 3 weeks for the full effect to appear. Avoid massaging or rubbing the area for the first 3 days. You should also avoid vigorous exercise, sunbathing, using a sunbed or a sauna for the first 2 days.
How Long Does It Last?
After receiving the injections, the wrinkle-smoothing effects are typically noticeable within 3-5 days. The full effect will be seen within 10-14 days from treatment. Like most of the other injectable treatments, the skin will remain smooth and relaxed for at least 3 months.
After that time the treatment will start to noticeably wear off. We recommend most of our clients to follow up and have another round of treatment every 3 months or so if they want to maintain a youthful appearance.
