What is Dysport?

Dysport is a prescription injection containing botulinum toxin type A, similar to Botox. It’s primarily used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. By blocking nerve signals to muscles, Dysport relaxes them, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Results typically last three to four months. Contact us to schedule your consultation for Dysport in St. Petersburg.

Dysport corrects:

  • Moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
  • Wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead
  • Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
  • Other dynamic wrinkles on the face

How It Works

Dysport contains botulinum toxin type A, which works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to muscles. When injected, it inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. By preventing these contractions, Dysport effectively relaxes targeted muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Over time, as the nerve signals gradually resume, muscle activity returns, necessitating periodic injections for sustained effects. This process offers temporary rejuvenation and a smoother skin appearance.

Benefits of Dysport:

  • Minimally invasive treatment
  • Minimal discomfort during and after treatment
  • Faster onset of action compared to other botulinum toxin treatments
  • Results that last three to four months
  • Proven efficacy in treating various dynamic wrinkles
  • Relatively quick procedure, often done during a lunch break
  • Generally well-tolerated with few reported side effects
  • Minimal activity restrictions and no downtime

Your Dysport Journey


During a Dysport treatment, you will first consult our aesthetic providers to discuss your goals. After marking the injection sites, the provider will cleanse your skin and may apply a numbing agent (if needed). Then, using a fine needle, the Dysport solution will be injected into targeted muscles. The procedure takes around 10 to 20 minutes.


After a Dysport treatment, you might experience mild side effects, such as temporary bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection sites, which usually resolve within a few days. You can resume regular activities immediately, but it’s advised to avoid vigorous exercise or massaging the treated area for the first 24 hours.


You’ll notice initial improvements within a few days, with full effects typically visible within a week or two. The results typically last three to four months, though this can vary depending on individual metabolism and treatment area. You can safely repeat treatments every three to four months to maintain your desired results.

Candidates for Dysport:

  • Have moderate to severe wrinkles between the eyebrows or on the forehead
  • Are bothered by visible signs of aging and seek a non-surgical solution
  • Don’t want the downtime associated with surgical procedures like facelifts or brow lifts
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcomes of Dysport treatments
  • Are in generally good health with no contraindications to receiving injections

During your consultation, our providers will discuss your aesthetic goals and medical history and assess your facial skin. They’ll examine the areas you wish to treat and explain the procedure, potential risks, and expected outcomes. Based on this evaluation, they will determine if you’re a good candidate for Dysport or if you might be better served with another treatment.
