If you are considering using Dysport® to treat wrinkles and fine lines, you need to know and understand as much about the treatment process as possible. In most cases, the procedure is done right in your doctor’s office and is typically pain-free. You might initially feel the pinprick sensation of the needle when the Dysport® is first injected, though.
Once the ingredients in Dysport® start working, you may not feel anything. However, in some cases, the skin at the injection site might feel tighter than usual or numb. The muscles at the injection site might also be difficult to move.
Your face or other injection sites should look and feel unchanged within minutes of the procedure. The doctor and medical team who perform the procedure can monitor you after the injection.
What Is Dysport® and What Is in It?
Dysport® is a toxic substance created with Clostridium botulinum, a poisonous bacteria if used incorrectly or in large enough amounts. In small doses, Dysport® is one of many medicines that has a series of aesthetic and medicinal uses.
Cosmetically, it can be used to temporarily reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines that affect the patient’s appearance. Because the effects of Dysport® are temporary, it requires multiple repeat procedures to maintain its results. When used for this purpose, its effect can last up to six months, allowing a patient to feel rejuvenated and refreshed.
Dysport®’s aesthetic uses are popular, but it also has the following medicinal purposes that can improve the patient’s appearance, provide pain relief, and improve their mobility in limited ways:
- Relieve profuse underarm perspiration
- Relive chronic, severe muscle contractions
- Stop uncontrollable blinking and eye movements
- Treat crossed or misaligned eyes
- Provide relief from the pain of chronic migraines
Your health care provider can explain the benefits of Dysport® and the number of injections you may require. They can also go over what to expect when you are treated, how to protect the treatment site, and how often you might need follow-up injections.
How Will It Affect My Appearance and Other Aspects of My Health
Dysport® therapy can enhance your appearance by smoothing out wrinkles and lines over time. It can do more than help you look better — it can improve your self-esteem by providing a more youthful appearance that can increase your self-confidence. Its use is:
You can also expect to enjoy rapid results that can also provide relief from the pain and frustration of chronic migraines that improve your quality of life. Medical care should treat the whole patient.
Dysport® can help you feel happier, more secure, and more self-assured. If the therapy aims to treat overactive bladder conditions or excessive sweating, it may allow you to feel better and possibly enjoy a more active lifestyle.

How Does Dysport® Work and Is It Safe for Repeated Use?
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) research has found that Dysport® is safe for use in most people. It works by preventing the muscles from contracting by blocking or interrupting the chemical signals your body sends to the nerves at the location where the drug is injected.
The effects of the treatment can last up to six months, depending on your body’s reaction and the injection site. Your doctor can explain more about what you should expect and how Dysport® therapy will look and feel.
What Side Effects I Should Know About?
Dysport® is largely considered safe and effective for use, but each patient may experience some side effects that range from mild to serious. The FDA notes some minor side effects reported by patients that include:
- Pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site
- Temporarily experiencing flu-like symptoms
- Headache and upset stomach
More serious side effects can include the following:
- Droopy eyes or eyelids and other vision trouble
- Allergic reactions, including a red, itchy rash
- The onset of asthma-like symptoms, such as wheezing
- Feelings of persistent dizziness or lightheadedness
Your provider may instruct you not to rub or massage the injection site to ensure the toxins in Dysport® do not travel or spread. They may continually monitor your reaction to Dysport® therapy. Inform your treating physician of any worrisome side effects without delay to ensure you receive proper follow-up evaluation and treatment.
