Some of the deepest lines and wrinkles on the face can come from repetitive expressions such as smiling, frowning, or raising eyebrows. While these lines and folds are permanent once they form, certain treatments such as Dysport can help to minimize the appearance of these lines, temporarily erase them, and keep them from getting deeper.
Dysport injections are treatments offered at AMG Aesthetics, and they can be a good option for targeting certain dynamic lines on the face. At our practice, we carefully choose treatments that can effectively treat your cosmetic concerns. By scheduling a consultation in Tucson, AZ, you can find out if Dysport is right for you.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable neuromodulator that targets dynamic wrinkles by affecting the surrounding muscles. Botulinum toxin type A, which is the active ingredient in Dysport, interrupts signals between the muscles in the injection area and the nerves that tell them to move.
Before Dysport injections, when you make an expression such as a frown, your muscles contract, and the skin wrinkles and folds. After Dysport injections, the skin remains smooth regardless of facial expression. Dysport provides temporary local effects that fade over time, making this treatment a highly customizable and versatile option for many different patients.
What Is Dysport Used For?
Dysport for Frown Lines
The primary use for Dysport treatments is to reduce the appearance of frown lines, also called glabellar lines. This is because Dysport is FDA-approved specifically for this area. It can offer subtle and natural-looking wrinkle reduction between the eyebrows. Because frown lines can create a permanent downward appearance in your brows, treatment of this area can improve your expression and make you look more youthful and approachable.
Dysport for Crow’s Feet
While FDA-approved for glabellar lines, Dysport can be used to treat other lines and wrinkles when injected by an experienced doctor. At our practice, we can use Dysport for crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles. By injecting small amounts of Dysport into the muscles near the eyes, we can reduce these wrinkles while allowing your smile to still appear natural and genuine.
Dysport for Forehead Lines
Forehead lines are the third type of dynamic wrinkle that can be treated with Dysport injections. When injected at specific points on the forehead, Dysport can diffuse throughout the area allowing widespread smoothing of deep, horizontal wrinkles without compromising motion in your eyebrows.
Dysport for Subtle Lip Augmentation
In the hands of an experienced injector, neuromodulators can be used to contour certain areas of the face. The Dysport lip flip is a treatment that can allow the tissue of the lips to subtly relax outwards, creating a more augmented lip shape without fillers. By gently relaxing certain muscles, we can also help to hide a gummy smile with the relaxed tissue of your upper lip.

Dysport vs Botox®: How Is Dysport Different?
Dysport and Botox are both excellent products that are made with the same active ingredient. However, because of their unique formulations, they are indicated for different circumstances. The two key differences between these two products are the molecular structure and the concentration of the botulinum toxin.
Dysport is a less concentrated product. Three times the amount of Dysport is needed to achieve similar effects. This can be beneficial for certain patients depending on their cosmetic goals.
Dysport uses a smaller protein molecule than Botox. This can cause the product to spread more easily through the treatment area. While Botox may be better for targeting specific areas, Dysport may be better for allowing even distribution through a wider area. The molecular structure of Dysport may also allow for faster treatment results.
How Long Does Dysport Last?
When used in frown lines, Dysport has been shown to be able to provide results for up to 5 months. However, this can depend on various factors such as the speed of your metabolism, the amount of product injected, and lifestyle factors. You should always talk to your doctor about treatment duration so that you can know what to expect from your results.
How Soon Does Dysport Work?
While result times can differ, Dysport can offer results sooner than other neuromodulators because of its molecular structure. Some patients find that they see results within 2-3 days. This can make Dysport treatments a good option if you have a big event that is coming up soon.
