Frequently Asked Questions
Answers about Botox® Cosmetic Injections
What is Dysport® used for?
Dysport® is a prescription injection administered by a licensed healthcare professional to treat moderate to severe frown lines (those wrinkles between the eyebrows).
Medically, it’s a botulinum neurotoxin (abobotulinumtoxinA), an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent. It temporarily prevents specific muscle movements that cause frown lines.
What are Dysport® injections?
Administered by a licensed healthcare professional, Dysport® is supplied as a single-use, sterile 300-unit vial. The dose of Dysport® for the treatment of glabellar lines (frown lines between your eyebrows) is a total of 50 units injected equally among the specific muscles. The dose of Dysport® is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product that you may have previously used.
How long does it take to administer?
Although office visits can vary, the procedure generally takes 10 to 20 minutes.
How long does it take Dysport® to work?
Though results vary, over half of users see improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows within 2-3 days.
How long does Dysport® last?
One treatment of Dysport® provides results that may last for up to 5 months.
What are the side effects of Dysport®?
The most common side effects 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.
Is Dysport® different from BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Dysport® and Botox are both made from botulinum toxin type A. All botulinum toxins have the same mechanism of action: blocking the release of acetylcholine (ACh) and preventing the muscles from contracting to maintain the aesthetic effect. However, the dose of Dysport® is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product that you may have previously used.
