If you’ve noticed wrinkles around your eyes and forehead, which could be giving you an aged appearance, a crucial part of a facial rejuvenation treatment plan could be Dysport.

What are Dysport Wrinkle Treatments?

Dysport wrinkle treatments injections give patients a temporary correction of moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. The injections are used primarily to correct wrinkles around the eyes and forehead.

Just like Botox (onabotulinum toxin A), Dysport (abobotulinum toxin A) is a neuromodulator that targets “dynamic” facial wrinkles, which are caused by repeatedly moving the same facial muscles every day, such as when you smile, laugh, squint, and/or frown.

When your skin is tighter and smoother, those lines usually disappear once you stop moving your facial muscles. As you age, however, the skin loses elasticity, hydration, and volume, and the lines and creases caused by those expressions don’t disappear once you stop making them.

With an ultrafine needle, our skilled, experienced medical specialists at Alchemy 43 will inject Dysport into the targeted area to reduce and soften those dynamic facial wrinkles. By being injected directly into muscles under the targeted wrinkle(s), Dysport interrupts the nerve impulses signaling those muscles to move. The result is smoother skin due to a reduction in the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles or lines.

Areas of the face that aren’t treated remain unaffected. Better yet, patients who undergo Dysport injections can make expressions naturally and freely without worrying about that dreaded “frozen” look.

Which Types of Wrinkles Does Dysport Treat?

Formulated by pharmaceutical company Galderma, Dysport is ideal for the following types of wrinkles:

  • Glabellar lines (vertical frown lines between the eyebrows, which resemble an “11”)
  • Crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes
  • Horizontal forehead lines


Though each patient is different and results may vary, the majority of patients notice an improvement to their wrinkles within 2-3 days after their initial injection(s). What’s more, Dysport can help improve the look of your facial wrinkles and frown lines for up to four months. To see the results from our patients, view our before and after photos.

Dysport vs Botox – How Are They Different?

The Botulinum toxin from which both Botox and Dysport are created are the same, which makes their effects similar. However, in order to best determine which neuromodulator is right for you, it’s critical that you choose an experienced practitioner. Our experienced medical specialists have the skill and training necessary to precisely tell which injectable you need. Once that has been determined, we will inject the proper amount to give you the attractive, natural-looking results you desire.

Side Effects

Dysport wrinkle treatment has been around for almost a decade and it’s been proven to be a safe and effective. Results can vary, but patients who choose a skilled, experienced medical specialist should expect excellent results with no major complications.

Still, minor side effects can happen; although they are often mild and temporary, they can include the following at the injection site:

  • Bruising
  • Soreness
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Muscle weakness
  • Muscle stiffness

Other side effects could include nausea, blurred vision, itchy or watery eyes, and dry mouth. These and other side effects should subside within 7-10 days. Contact us today to learn more about potential side effects from using Dysport.


Frequently Asked Questions about Dysport Wrinkle Treatments

Q: I know that Dysport is different from Botox, but how do I know which one is better for me?

A: You won’t know which injectable treatment is better for you until a consultation with a medical specialist to gauge your skin condition, aesthetic goals, overall health, and more.

Furthermore, a consultation with a skincare expert will help determine the number of injections and sessions you’ll need to achieve your goals. This is crucial because there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan with a preset number of injections. View our Menu of Services to choose the right treatment for you.

Ultimately, your results will depend less on the product itself and more on the technique of the injector. Results vary from patient to patient, but the best way to increase your chances of achieving your desired results is to trust your injections to an experienced medical specialist with the requisite technique and skill.

Q: I have a busy schedule – do neuromodulator injections cause significant downtime?

A: There is almost zero downtime after undergoing a Dysport injection. Treatment usually takes under an hour, which means you can immediately get back to your daily routine once you leave our West Los Angeles office.

Q: Is Dysport different from dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvéderm?

A: Yes – in two main ways.

First, Dysport is a neuromodulator that minimizes the muscle activity that results in the formation of wrinkles. Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm Ultra XC fill in facial lines, lift the skin, and stimulate collagen growth.

Second, Dysport addresses wrinkles that develop from repetitive facial movements, while fillers are designed to address wrinkles that form from skin laxity, volume depletion, and collagen loss.
