Dysport® is a cosmetic injectable medication used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe frown lines that form between the eyebrows. It works by blocking nerve signals that tell muscles to contract. This contraction relaxes and smooths the appearance of wrinkles.
Dysport® was officially approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or the FDA, in 2009 and is similar to Botox®.
How is Dysport® used?
Dysport® is manually injected into the muscles of the face using a fine needle. The injection site and amount will be determined by your doctor based on your desired results.

Dysport® typically takes effect within a few days and lasts up to four months.
What are the side effects of Dysport®?
The most commonly seen side effects of Dysport® injections may include headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reactions, mild upper respiratory tract infection, and sometimes nausea. These side effects are usually rather mild and resolve on their own.
