What is Dysport?

Dysport® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that can significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead. Dysport® relaxes the muscles underneath the facial skin, allowing the overlying skin to also relax, for a more youthful and softer appearance. Dysport® is similar to BOTOX®, which also contains Botulinum toxin type A, but has a slightly different formula. Most patients see visible changes from Dysport® in about a week and results last three to four months. At Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology in San Francisco, our team of board-certified dermatologists, our PA, and our registered nurses offer Dysport®, BOTOX®, and Xeomin injectable wrinkle relaxers so we can provide our patients with all available options to address your anti-aging needs.

Who should get Dysport?

Individuals who wish to soften the wrinkles and lines around their eyes and on their forehead should consider Dysport® for a younger looking complexion. Our team of highly experiences injectors will consult with you to determine if Dypsort® is the best wrinkle relaxer to address your cosmetic concerns. 


To achieve best results, Dysport® must be administered with precision, expertise, and care. Our team of injectors all have advanced training and lots of experience to customize your Dysport® treatment. Prior to your treatment we will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. Then, one of our skilled doctors, our PA, or one of our registered nurses will use a tiny needle to inject the Dysport® into the muscles on your forehead, in between your brows, or around your eyes. With the help of our topical numbing cream, most patients find the injections quite tolerable. 

What happens after Dysport

Patients may experience mild swelling and redness at and around the injection sites. This is a common side effect that usually dissipates within an hour of the treatment. Following your treatment, you may immediately return back to work and your daily activities. Patients usually see a noticeably smoother, brighter, and more youthful appearance within a week of the treatment with results that last about three to four months.

Dysport FAQ

How much does Dysport cost?
The total cost is based on the amount of Dysport used for your treatment. In your initial consultation, your injector will develop your unique treatment plan so they can estimate your cost. Ask if we have any specials on Dysport at Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology and the different methods of payment we accept.

What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both BOTOX and Dysport are cosmetic injections to correct dynamic wrinkles. Dysport results usually become visible faster compared to BOTOX. Also, Dysport has longer-lasting results compared to other wrinkle relaxers and, it is better for larger areas. During your first appointment, your injector will help you determine whether BOTOX or Dysport is ideal for your needs and goals.

Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Most people do not understand the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers. A wrinkle relaxer corrects dynamic wrinkles, whereas a wrinkle filler corrects static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are created by repetitive motions, like smiling, frowning, laughing, and other expressions. Dysport relaxes the creased muscle under the skin for a smoother appearance. During your initial consultation, your injector will ask about your concerns and goals to help you determine whether a wrinkle relaxer like Dysport, a filler, or a combination of both will deliver your best outcome.

Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
At Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology, we offer many cosmetic treatments that may be used to boost your Dysport results. Based on your areas of concern and goals, your personalized plan may include Dysport injections, an injectable filler for static wrinkles or volume in your cheeks and lips, as well as a skin treatment. We encourage you to be open during your consultation — so we can create a treatment plan that provides amazing results.

How often should I get Dysport injections?
Dysport injection results may last as long as four months. In your consultation, your injector will discuss how often you should return to our office in San Francisco, CA to maintain your results. You may get treatments more often or further apart after you know how Dysport works on your skin.
