What is Dysport?

Dysport, a newer alternative to Botox, is a prescription botulinum toxin type A injectable designed to reduce moderate to deep frown lines between the eyebrows, also called glabellar lines.

Like Botox, Dysport is a neuromodulator that relaxes muscles to reduce wrinkles. However, Dysport treats deep wrinkles, while Botox can target smaller wrinkles, such as laugh lines around the eyes. During the procedure, botulinum toxin type A is injected into five points between and above the eyebrows, relaxing the muscles that cause 11s, or frown lines between the eyebrows.


This treatment effectively addresses wrinkles and fine lines by minimizing the activity of targeted muscles. The formation of wrinkles is attributed to the repetitive movement and contraction of muscles, making them a concern even for younger individuals.

A single injection is administered at each of the five points situated above and between the eyebrows. This temporary intervention inhibits muscle contractions responsible for frown lines, while allowing the remaining facial muscles to move freely and naturally. In essence, it ensures a naturally expressive appearance without any stiffness, offering you control over your appearance rather than being controlled by it. This is what sets Dysport apart.

How long does Dysport last?

Say goodbye to frown lines. Your valuable time should be spent on more meaningful endeavors rather than fixating on the appearance of wrinkles on your forehead. With a single treatment of Dysport Boston patients may experience a noticeable enhancement in the appearance of their frown lines, which can last for up to 4 months.

The majority of individuals who receive Dysport in Boston witness visible improvements within just 2–3 days following the procedure. Subsequent treatments may yield results similar to your initial usage. Another advantage is the minimal to no recovery time required after the treatment, allowing Boston Dysport patients to promptly resume their daily activities.


Feeling disheartened by frown lines? Confront those lines head-on with Dysport. If you are below 65 and wish to address the appearance of wrinkles around the eyebrows, this could be the ideal solution for you. However, before embarking on this journey, take a moment to familiarize yourself with the following information, ensuring you can make a well-informed and secure decision. If you desire further knowledge on this treatment and its suitability for your specific circumstances, our medical team is here to assist you.
