Don’t let your frown lines between your eyebrows define you. Our Dysport treatments can eliminate signs of wrinkles and fine lines, lift the brow and cheek, smoothen and tighten skin. can be used interchangeably with Botox. 

Botox® is no longer the only wrinkle eraser available to our clients. Dysport, made by the makers of Restylane®, is another injectable that smoothes crow’s feet, forehead lines and vertical frown lines using a variation of the active ingredient in Botox. Botox is more versatile for targeting a specific wrinkle or line, while Dysport is more effective at treating larger areas

While both products are made from botulinum toxin type A, the molecule in Dysport is smaller and the injection is administered at a deeper level. The smaller molecule creates a smoother transition from the treated area to the rest of the face giving a more natural look.


As the injections are deeper, the product spreads twice as far as Botox making it a better choice for larger areas. The greater diffusion is also beneficial in treating larger or stronger muscles as those found in men.

Dysport has been found to act faster than Botox, with most patients noticing their early results in 2 to 5 days. Botox typically takes between 4 to 7 days to act. In both cases the final result is clearly evident within 2 weeks. This is beneficial for those with an unexpected important event or meeting on the horizon.







Frequently asked questions

What exactly is Dysport?

Tiny amounts of Dysport are injected directly into the facial muscles underlying the frown lines. It usually takes three to five small, almost painless injections between the eyebrows for an effective treatment. No local anaesthetic is usually required but if you are concered your doctor can numb the skin over the area before injecting. You can expect treatment to take around 10-20 minutes. Over the next few days, the muscles gradually relax. You probably won't notice it happening – you'll just become aware that you can't contract your frown muscles. But because you can still blink normally and raise your eyebrows, you will not look unnatural. Rather, you can enjoy a more youthful appearance while maintaining a natural expression

Are there any side effects and risks with Dysport?

Along with its desired effects, treatments can cause unwanted effects. This does not happen very often. The most common side effects are temporary soreness or mild bruising around the injection site. Some people may experience a slight headache that lasts for several hours after treatment; it is safe to take a mild pain killer to relieve this. In a very small percentage of cases there can be a complication called "ptosis" (a drooping eyelid) which may last a few days or up to 4 weeks. Rarely, an allergic reaction can cause a skin rash or "flu like" symptoms. Tell your doctor if you experience any troublesome side effects. You should not have Dysport treatment while you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or at all if you have a neuromuscular disease.

What can Dysport do for me?

Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint into the sun, your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that become permanently etched on your face. Frown lines between your eyes can become particularly noticeable at a relatively young age, making you look angry or worried even when you're not. By temporarily immobilising the muscles you use to frown, Dysport can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. Because you will be physically unable to frown after treatment, you may even lose the urge to frown. The lasting effect of treatment with Dysport can differ between individuals after which further courses of treatment may be necessary. Speak with your specialist about the results you can expect with Dysport. Many people find after several treatements that they don't need another one for longer, because they have "unlearned" the habit of frowning or squinting that originally led to the development of these lines.
