Dysport is an injectable neurotoxin; it is another cosmetic form of Botulinum Toxin type A called AbobotulinumtoxinA. It aims to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and below the eyebrows.

Frown lines happen to everyone; it’s a natural part of aging, genetics, or lifestyle factors. Developing these frown lines (or glabellar lines) can begin as early as your 20s. Fortunately, Dysport targets the indicated area and greatly diminishes signs of aging in this location. In fact, this is one of the only neurotoxins the FDA-approved specifically for treating larger surface areas, such as the lines on your forehead and cheek, that indicate early expression of age.

Dysport delivers natural-looking, fast-acting, and long-lasting results that many patients desire. It safely smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and boasts 25 years of clinical experience worldwide. This injectable is a favorite among men and women for its proven results, with 97% of treated patients saying they’d do it again.

Dysport is a neurotoxin and will be the best option to reduce wrinkles. Schedule your initial consultation at Pommier Med Spa to determine which option best achieves your aesthetic goals within your budget.

How Does Dysport Work?

It treats the forehead’s moderate to severe frown lines by reducing muscle activity. Your provider will review how many units you need and where to inject them to achieve the desired results.

What to Expect when getting Dysport at Pommier Med Spa?

This treatment is a minimally-invasive procedure and is relatively painless. At Pommier Med Spa, your provider will cleanse the skin in the treated area. Although most people don’t require any anesthesia and numbing, a mild topical numbing cream can be applied if needed. Next, a tiny needle injects a small amount into the muscle in the desired area.

This treatment is painless; however, you may feel slight pinching during the injection. It’s a very quick procedure, less than 15 minutes for the entire treatment, and you can resume your daily activities immediately.  You will want to set aside a little extra time for your first consultation so your provider can do a full assessment and design a plan to reach your aesthetic goals. When making your appointment, you can confirm how much time you need to set aside.

Dysport treats frown lines by blocking the repeated muscle movements that cause them. The injections are typically administered at 5 points along and above the eyebrows to treat the area successfully.

At Pommier Med Spa, we take a holistic approach to address all areas of concern, such as wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead. We’ll also recommend treatments to improve the skin’s texture and tone to diminish fine lines and creases in the forehead while revitalizing lost volume.

Is Dysport Safe?

Yes, it is an FDA-approved treatment considered safe and effective, provided that an experienced injector does the procedure. However, mild swelling and bruising can occur after injections. Still, the chance of this happening can be alleviated by taking a few precautions, which we will expand on further in this article.

What Do I Need to Know Before My Dysport Procedure?

The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes. We recommend avoiding alcohol and blood thinners 24 to 48 hours before and after your treatment.


After Dysport Injections, you can continue your regular daily activities as usual. However, we recommend avoiding physical activity and anything that may cause facial flushing for at least four hours after the treatment. We also advise that you not lie down for serval hours after treatment or lay on either side of your face.


Results are fast-acting and typically appear in as little as two to three days. How long it lasts will depend on a few factors; although most people can enjoy the look of their results for about six months, individual results may vary.


Dysport injectables are FDA Approved and generally considered safe as long as a trained and experienced provider administers them.


Q: Will I still be able to make facial expressions with Dysport?

A: When you receive Dysport Injections, you’ll be able to maintain natural-looking facial expressions. The idea is to treat the muscles that make you scowl or squint while leaving the muscles that impact your smile. It is considered the strongest of the neuromodulators on the market but is also known for producing natural results. The key is to choose an experienced injector that will give you the best outcome.

Q: What other conditions does Dysport treat?

A: It is FDA-approved for treating cervical dystonia. The active ingredient, AbobotulinumtoxinA, works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles and then reducing overactivity in these muscles. When used appropriately on patients with cervical dystonia, Dysport resulted in symptom relief for most patients. This relief typically lasted until 14-18 weeks after the injection was administered.

Q: How do I know if I am a candidate?

A: If you have moderate to severe wrinkles on your forehead, Dysport may be right for you. However, men and women who are allergic to milk, taking medications for muscle spasms, or are pregnant should not use Dysport.

Q: Are there any side effects?

A: One of the most common side effects is minor bruising and swelling at the injection sites. This will resolve on its own in hours or days at the most.

Q: Can I get this while pregnant?

A: Dysport may not be appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
