If you are familiar with Botox, then you will have a good idea of the uses and treatment for which Dysport is used. Though approved in the United States in April 2009, Dysport has a history of use in other countries since 1991. First approved for aesthetic use outside the U.S. in 2001, Dysport has steadily gained in popularity around the world. Today Dysport is marketed and sold for aesthetic use in 36 countries (as of October 2009).
Today, Dysport is an injection treatment that competes with Botox, and is one that many people turn to for the treatment of frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). Patients can typically see an improvement in their frown lines within about 4-7 days of having the treatment. The longevity of the results varies, depending on the individual, with some people seeing results that last from 3-8 months.
Most patients that opt for Dysport are adults under the age of 65 who are seeking a temporary treatment for lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows.
Dysport acts as a muscle relaxant in the areas of the face that are treated, thereby preventing those areas from tensing and creating lines and wrinkles. The treatment is effective for lines and wrinkles that are considered moderate to severe.

Dysport injection treatments
The Dermatology Institute of Southern California is excited to offer Dysport, an innovative injection used to lift skin and smooth out wrinkles. Akin to Botox, Dysport is a safe and quick procedure that is a popular alternative to cosmetic surgery. It has real results that are natural looking and easy to achieve.
Dysport, also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, is a versatile injection option used for many different purposes. Administered directly into the skin at several strategically-placed locations through a fine needle, the Dysport injection procedure is specifically used to target the following conditions:
- Cervical dystonia, an abnormal positioning of the head
- Crow’s feet
- Wrinkles between the eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines
- Sagging necklines
- Wrinkle lines around the mouth
- Wrinkles on the chest
FDA approved, Dysport injections quickly smooth out skin, leaving it firm and youthful looking. It is a quick procedure with no downtime, causing no disruption in a person’s busy daily activities. It is long lasting, and if desired, individuals may repeat treatment after about 3-4 months.
In some cases, individuals have mild side effects, including headaches or slight swelling or bruising around the area of injection. In treatments that take place around the eyes, patients may very rarely experience temporary drooping of eyelids.
The Dermatology Institute of Southern California takes pride in helping you look and feel great. We believe that everyone should be comfortable in their skin. At your free consultation, Dr. Behroozan, a board certified dermatologist, will discuss your skin care needs, determining if Dysport can work for you.
