What is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable prescription botulinum toxin type A medication. It is proven to smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows without changing the look or movement of the rest of the face. The facial muscles that have not been treated with Dysport continue to move normally. Dysport minimizes lines and wrinkles – not your expressions.

Am I a candidate for Xeomin?

Dynamic wrinkles are among the earliest signs of aging to appear on your face, formed by the movement of expressive muscles. If you have dynamic wrinkles around your eyes or on your forehead, or vertical frown lines between the brows, you may be a good candidate for Dysport.

What should I expect with Dysport injections?

Dysport injections take just minutes to complete. A topical anesthetic is applied, so you are comfortable. During the procedure, your doctor may inject Dysport into five different areas around the eyebrows and forehead. You may feel slight pressure, but the procedure should not cause significant pain or discomfort.


What should I expect after Dysport treatment?

You can return to your normal activities immediately after Dysport injections. There is virtually no recovery time with this treatment. Avoid rubbing or scratching the area treated to avoid the product spreading incorrectly. Wait at least two hours before exercising or engaging in physical activity.


What are the benefits of Dysport?

If you are looking to minimize dynamic lines and wrinkles, Dysport has several benefits, including:

  • Cost-effective option
  • Quick “lunch hour” procedure
  • Nonsurgical treatment with no incisions, sutures, scarring, or downtime
  • Natural-looking, long-lasting results (up to four months)
  • Frown lines smoothed without affecting facial expressions

How do I prepare for Dysport injections?

Before your Dysport injections, your doctor will thoroughly review your medical history. It may be recommended that you stop taking certain supplements and medications, including:

  • Blood thinners
  • Cold medications
  • Allergy medications
  • Muscle relaxers
  • Sleep aids

Dysport FAQ

How is Dysport different than BOTOX?

Both Dysport and BOTOX are used to temporarily smooth lines and wrinkles by preventing the muscles that cause them from contracting. However, the two products differ in some ways, including:

  • Molecule size: Dysport contains smaller molecules than BOTOX, which may be beneficial in some cases, allowing the Dysport to work faster.
  • Diffusion: Dysport diffuses more than BOTOX, spreading to a broader area after injection. This diffusion may be beneficial when treating larger areas, but not advised for treating smaller areas where more precision is required, or areas containing thicker muscles.

Do younger people have Dysport injections?

Yes. Dysport is not only for aging faces. In fact, wrinkles in the forehead and frown lines between the brows are not a result of aging. These lines and wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle movements of an expressive face.

Is Dysport approved by the FDA?

Yes, this product is FDA-approved and has undergone many clinical trials. Dysport is a safe medication when administered by our skilled and experienced medical professionals at Comprehensive Laser.

How soon will I see results after treatment?

Most people who receive Dysport injections see improvement in only two to three days after treatment.

How long do Dysport injections last?

Based on clinical trials reported by the manufacturer, results with Dysport injections can last for up to four months. At that point, you will need to return for another treatment session to maintain your more youthful look.

What We're Doing About COVID-19

At Comprehensive Laser, your health, safety and happiness are our top priorities. We have been monitoring the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation very carefully. We will be partially reopening the office beginning Monday, May 11th. We will continue to follow updates from local, state and federal authorities and if we receive different guidance we will respond appropriately and notify you immediately.

We have taken a series of precautionary steps to ensure your safety:

  1. We are performing enhanced cleaning and sanitizing of all patient care areas on a regular basis and in between all patient visits.
  2. We will avoid having patients congregate in our reception area. Upon check-in, you will be shown to either a private exam room or consultation room depending upon the nature of your appointment.
  3. All members of our staff are screened daily for COVID symptoms and are asked to stay home if they exhibit any signs or symptoms of the disease.
  4. We screen all patients entering our facility with COVID symptom screening questionnaires.
  5. ALL of our providers wear surgical face masks, plastic face shields and the necessary personal protective equipment to ensure patient and provider safety.
  6. We use hospital-grade disinfectants (Cavi-Wipes, Cavicide) to clean patient rooms and equipment. CaviCide is a convenient, ready-to-use, intermediate-level surface disinfectant that is effective against TB, HBV, HCV, viruses (hydrophilic and lipophilic), bacteria (including MRSA and VRE) and fungi. It can be used in the NICU, operating rooms, isolation rooms, patient care areas and laboratories. When used as directed, it will also effectively clean and decontaminate critical and semi-critical instrumentation.
  7. All of our equipment and protective eyewear are cleaned after every use.
  8. Plexiglass shields will be in place at the check-in and check out areas to prevent aerosol transmission.
  9. We offer "No touch" payment methods such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and online invoicing.

For the time being, we ask that you come to your appointments alone to limit the traffic through the office. We also ask that you leave children in the care of a family member or a sitter. If you have had a recent fever, sore throat, cold- or flu-like symptoms or contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19 please call immediately to reschedule your appointment.

As always we appreciate your support of and trust in our practice and we look forward to seeing you soon!
