Neuromodulator injections are one of the most requested cosmetic treatments, including Dysport® injections. Like Botox®, Dysport uses a neurotoxin to impact muscle movements, creating beautiful aesthetic results. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer Dysport injections for frown lines treatment and other cosmetic benefits at our clinics in the greater Washington, D.C., metro area.

Dysport injections use a botulinum toxin A strain to impact facial muscle contractions and movement. This neurotoxin targets the nerves that communicate to the muscle, blocking nerve signals. Dysport injections are FDA approved for the treatment of glabellar lines (11s) between the eyebrows. The relaxing effect on the brow muscles smooth frown lines – Dysport is also used for other off-label cosmetic treatments that involve dynamic lines and wrinkles.

Frown Lines Treatment

Dysport injections are a quick solution for frown lines and other wrinkles. The treatment can be performed in about 15 minutes with little to no discomfort. The injections are carefully placed to target the exact muscles causing the dynamic lines. There is no need for downtime or recovery after the treatment – you can return to your normal activities after your treatment.

The effects of Dysport take a few days to appear. For frown lines treatment, the “11s” will become less pronounced as the neurotoxin begins to block the nerve signals. Most patients will see the final results within a week and enjoy the smoothing of wrinkles for 3-4 months before the effects wear off. There are very few side effects for most patients. Bruising or swelling at the injection sites are the most common side effects, which quickly disappear in the days after the injections. Repeated treatments throughout the year can be used to maintain the desired appearance.

Dysport offers similar cosmetic benefits as Botox, Jeuveau® and Xeomin® treatments. Like most cosmetic injectables, some patients have better results with different brands.

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.
