ZL Medspa

Dysport® is the strongest of all the neurotoxins available, and has the highest concentrations in its proprietary formula. This makes it a great choice for those with very strong facial muscles, as its relaxing effect works remarkably well.  

All about Dysport

Dysport is one of the top botulinum injectables available, and has a proven track record of popularity with those who choose it. This purified botulinum neurotoxin is mostly known for its quick onset time (3 to 7 days), as well as its ability to relax the muscles more effectively while also being able to spread nicely. This spreadability is very popular because it helps the forehead to look smooth and seamless. With Dysport, it’s less obvious where the treated area begins and ends. Its faster results also make it the ideal treatment to have before a last-minute special occasion. Early results are typically visible within a few days of the Dysport treatment, and last 3 to 6 months. 

What can Dysport treat?

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • 11s between the brows
  • Lines and wrinkles

Is Dysport safe?

FDA approved since 2009 and backed by 25 years of clinical testing, Dysport is very safe. However, be sure to only receive Dysport from an experienced, certified professional.

Will Dysport allow me to still make expressions?

Yes. Although your lines will be greatly reduced, you’ll still be able to make your familiar facial expressions. When you choose Dysport expert, they know just the right amount of product to inject in order to achieve the results you want while still allowing you to be able to move your face properly.

How do neurotoxins work?

Neurotoxins work by relaxing over-active muscles. They have the ability to successfully block communication from the nerve to the muscles that are responsible for making lines and wrinkles appear. When the muscle doesn’t receive the signal to contract, the overlying skin smooths out and wrinkles are much less visible. This creates a more youthful, less hard appearance.

Good candidates for Dysport

  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Want to improve moderate facial lines and wrinkles  
  • Are in overall good health
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Do not have an allergy to Dysport’s ingredients
  • Do not have a milk allergy 
  • Do not have any type of neurological disorder
  • Do not take medication for muscle spasms
  • Have a realistic understanding of what Dysport can accomplish 

How is Dysport different than Botox?

Although there are different neurotoxins, Dysport and Botox® are the most popular. Because of this, they often get compared. While there are differences in the way these products obtain the botulinum toxin, the amount of non-toxin protein complexes they use, and the method in which they’re manufactured, the most noticeable differences come from what patients observe. This includes:


  • Dysport has a higher concentration of active ingredient and may provide results longer.
  • Dysport may be better for treating very strong facial muscles


  • Results from Botox take approximately 2 weeks for final effect, but may be evident in as early as 3-5 days.
  • Results from Dysport take approximately 2 weeks for final effect, but early smoothing is noticeable as early as 3 days


Before your Dysport treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and you will be given a numbing agent if necessary. Injections take approximately 10 to 20 minutes and are very tolerable. The dosage will be determined based on the amount of muscle mass where treatment is desired. Follow-up sessions can be scheduled after 90 days.


The treated area will be red and look a little irritated for a couple hours following treatment, but then you should be able to return to your regular day. Some patients experience a headache, mild swelling, inflammation, and/or nausea. Avoid consuming alcohol for the rest of the day, and do not recline or lie down for six hours following treatment.

During the following week you’ll need to be very gentle when applying makeup, and avoid the following:

  • Rubbing/scrubbing your face
  • Sleeping on your face
  • Bending over
  • Tanning
  • Heavy exercise
  • Hot water
