Dysport is one of the neuromodulators that utilizes botulinum toxin A, similar to Botox. It is FDA-approved for the treatment of frown lines, but it is used off-label for many cosmetic and medical purposes. For some people, Dysport is a great alternative to Botox and may have better results. Here are six of the many benefits of Dysport injections and how they can be used to improve your appearance.

1. Smooth Dynamic Lines and Wrinkles

Dynamic facial wrinkles are those that are caused by muscle movement. While some wrinkles are static and appear even when your face is resting, others are more pronounced when you make certain facial expressions. Dysport works to relax muscles that create dynamic lines to smooth away frown or worry lines on the forehead and other wrinkles.

2. Shrink Pronounced Muscles

If you have a wide jaw or pronounced neck cords, Dysport can relax these muscles and allow them to shrink over time. This can slim a wide jaw or smooth the platysma muscles that stick out on the neck when you clench your jaw. Dysport treatments can be used over and over to maintain the results if the muscles begin to become more noticeable.

3. Quick and Comfortable Treatment

Dysport injections can be performed in about 15-20 minutes. The injections are well-tolerated with little to no pain. There is no downtime required after the injections are completed – you can go back to work or your normal activities after your treatment.

4. Refine Facial Features

Dysport is a more diluted form of botulinum toxin A than Botox. This can be beneficial as it spreads more easily and is not as concentrated. This can produce a refined effect that enhances your facial features without “freezing” your expressions. However, since it does spread easily, it is important to avoid rubbing or touching the treatment areas in the 24 hours or so after the injections. You want the neurotoxin to reach the neurotransmitters of the targeted muscles and not be displaced by massaging the area.

5. Long Lasting Results

Some patients have longer-lasting results with Dysport than with Botox. In general, both last about 3-4 months before the effects begin to wear off. There are some patients that do not need another Dysport treatment for up to six months or longer. As with most cosmetic injections, the results vary from person to person – one brand of neuromodulator may work better than others depending on how your body reacts.

6. Prevention of Wrinkles

Not only can Dysport help eliminate crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and worry lines, but it may help prevent future wrinkles. Keeping the muscles relaxed can stop the creasing of the skin which creates dynamic lines. Many younger individuals use small doses of Dysport or Botox to help keep their face looking smooth and wrinkle-free.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
