The single most terrifying issue many people face as they grow older is their fading appearances. Looks are of tremendous importance all around the world and when people grow old they start panicking about how they look. Thus, many seek various methods of concealing their age-related deteriorating looks that usually climax in wrinkles, oftentimes those found between your eyebrows. The latter are known medically as glabellar lines.
Just a few decades ago nobody had even the slightest idea that at the turn of the twentieth century it would be possible to deal with glabellar lines just with the touch of a needle. The solution comes with Dysport, one of the safest and most researched options on the market. As noninvasive as it is, Dysport uses a certain type of botulinum toxin to freeze the muscles responsible for glabellar lines. In 2009 it was deemed safe for treating moderate to severe lines between eyebrows by the most reputed organization responsible for promoting and protecting public health in the United States – that is, Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Increasing numbers of people opt for this beauty treatment as it is a proven method of effective freezing of those annoying lines between one’s eyebrows that become more and more prominent as people age. A number of celebrities have already confessed to having used Dysport to smarten up their looks and you shouldn’t be hesitant about using it too.

What is Dysport and how does it work?
Probably the two most common questions that people who contemplate using Dysport ask are
- Is Dysport safe?
- Is Dysport painful?
However, before addressing the aforementioned questions (see FAQs) a more generic question needs to be clarified – that is, how does Dysport work? The answer to this simple question reveals why a whopping 97% of Dysport patients choose to use this minimally invasive beauty treatment again. In fact, the ins and outs of the mechanism behind Dysport are quite simple.
The main principle of Dysport is treating moderate to severe glabellar lines (a.k.a. the lines between eyebrows) by weakening the muscles located between eyebrows. The injection into the muscles temporarily stops the contraction of the muscles and therefore prevents these annoying glabellar lines from appearing on your face. This is achieved with the help of botulinum neurotoxin (abobotulinumtoxinA) which is nothing but an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent.
What areas Dysport can be applied to?
Dysport could be used effectively to freeze wrinkles all over the face, especially the ones located on forehead. FDA also allows for the usage of Dysport for
- The treatment of adults with cervical dystonia, defined as a painful condition in which neck muscles contract uncontrollably, therefore causing one’s head to tilt to one side
- The treatment of upper limb spasticity, a condition that affects one’s ability to move their hands painlessly by causing twitching and spasms, in adults
- The treatment if lower limb spasticity in pediatric patients 2 years of age and older

Dysport vs. Botox: When do I use what?
Dysport and Botox are very similar in that they are both made of botulinum toxin type A. As a consequence, the two treatments affect a patient’s body in a similar way. However, there are a few key differences between the two as outlined below.
- Unit measurements are different – Dysport is composed of smaller-sized molecules as opposed to Botox. So you need more Dysport to get the same results as with Botox
- Dysport can be a little cheaper in some clinics
- Dysport spreads out more than Botox. This is both advantageous and disadvantageous. On the positive note, the fact that it diffuses more results in more efficacious treatment of wider areas such as forehead. However, by the same token, the results are worse if the area that needs treatment is small.
HOW DO DYSPORT INJECTIONS WORK?

The dose that is used to treat glabellar lines (a.k.a. as frown lines or the lines between one’s eyebrows) is a total of 60 units that are equally injected among the specific muscles. It needs to be noted that the dosage of Dysport is quite different from that of other botulinum toxin treatments. So the doses shouldn’t be attempted to be matched if you’ve used other botulinum products before.
IS DYSPORT SAFE?
Dysport is safe and the best proof is its approval by FDA. The way it works in noninvasive in that the substance is injected directly into the muscles without spreading to other part of the body.
