Has your youthful appearance lost some of its luminance? If you’re unhappy with how the signs of aging change your looks and feel like you’re stuck with them, think again. Many wrinkle-relieving treatments can reverse the signs of aging, and Dysport is one of them. 

What is Dysport?

Dysport is a botulinum neurotoxin (abobotulinumtoxinA) that temporarily prevents specific muscle movements that cause frown lines.

What is a Dysport Treatment Like?

Dysport treatment is quick and easy. When you arrive at your appointment, your licensed Nava professional will ensure you’re comfortable and then prep your injection(s).

Dysport comes in a single-use, sterile 300-unit vial. Your Nava Nurse Injector will measure the amount of units needed for your procedure using a syringe. For example, a typical amount of Dysport required for the treatment of frown lines between your eyebrows is about 50 units. The syringe is fitted with a tiny needle, which minimizes the pain of the injection. The Dysport is skillfully injected into targeted muscles to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.

Unlike other aesthetic treatments requiring 1-2 days of rest so your skin can heal, Dysport allows you to return to your regularly scheduled activities. For example, you can head back to work or pick up the kids right after your appointment because there’s no downtime or recovery time.

The Dos and Don’t of Post-Dysport Care:


  • Make facial movements like frowning and squinting to help the serum work into your muscles.

Don’t (For 4 hours post-treatment, please avoid):

  • Strenuous exercise, facials, and saunas.  
  • Rubbing, massaging, or fiddling with the treatment site.
  • Lying down. Remain upright to keep the treatment site free of pressure.

About 50% of Dysport users see results within 1-2 days; optimal results are achieved in 3-4 weeks. One Dysport treatmentcan last up to five months.

What Are the Benefits of Dysport?

Dysport is convenient.

Its treatments are often called “lunchtime facelifts” because sessions can take as little as 20 to 30 minutes.

Dysport gives you a natural look.

It covers large areas and spreads quickly over larger areas, enhancing natural features and avoiding a “frozen” look.

Dysport prevents future wrinkles.

It not only eliminates the wrinkles you have now, but it prevents future ones too! Since the treatment reduces muscle activity, it prevents skin overlapping and creasing, which in turn prevents wrinkles.

Dysport treats multiple regions.

Although it’s typically used to treat the glabellar lines between your eyebrows that make you look like you have a perpetual frown, you can also use it for horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, perioral lines, or the chin. 

Dysport relaxes your facial muscles.

Almost as soon as you’ve had the injection, the muscles under your skin relax. This gives you a softer, smoother, and more youthful-looking face by reducing muscle activity in the treatment area.

Is Dysport or Botox Right for Me?

Your Nava Nurse Injector is the best person to answer this question because they are injectable experts and can help you decide what will work best for your situation. We will, however, take you on a little road trip through the differences between Botox and Dysport so you can be an informed client!

Dysport and Botox are both neurotoxins made from the same type of botulinum toxin. However, a slightly different technique for dosing and a different structure set them apart.

First stop: Consistency

Dysport has smaller protein molecules, which makes it more diluted. Smaller protein molecules are beneficial when treating more extensive face areas and spread quickly and easily.

These proteins also come in a lot more sizes than Botox proteins.

Because of this, Dysport diffuses easily and usually requires fewer injections than Botox to achieve the best results. On the other hand, the consistency of Botox makes it better suited for targeting precise locations like elevens and lines around your mouth and under your eyes.

Second stop: Use

Botox effectively erases the “11” that appears between eyebrows. Dysport shines when it comes to crow’s feet and forehead lines. Both injectables can also be used to:

  • Reduce bunny lines along the sides of the nose
  • Decrease nasal flares
  • Treat the corners of the mouth
  • Adjust the jawline
  • Shape eyebrows

Third stop: Immunity

Some people are immune or become immune to Botox, which means that Botox won’t work for them. Dysport contains fewer proteins than Botox, which means your body is less likely to produce antibodies to fight it off and eventually build up immunity.

Fourth stop: Results

The effects of Dysport typically show up more quickly than Botox, and they will last longer too. Botox typically lasts between three and six months, while Dysport consistently lasts closer to six months.

Are Botox and Dysport Poisons?

Although Botox and Dysport are created from a neurotoxin, neither injectable is poisonous nor toxic. It’s delivered as a natural, purified protein and administered in minute doses. They’re derived from a naturally occurring bacterium, in the same way that penicillin is derived from mold.

What Happens When You Stop Neurotoxin Treatments?

Neurotoxins don’t degenerate skin or affect tissue quality. All they do is temporarily freeze muscles so lines and wrinkles can no longer show.

If you stop treatment, your appearance will look like it did when you started Dysport or Botox.
