What is Dysport?       (abobotulinumtoxinA)

Dysport is a local muscle relaxant (or neuromuscular blocking agent) adapted from the botulinum neuromodulator type-A. It contains the same core toxin as Botox or Xeomin, called botulinum.

How does Dysport work?

With a small needle, Dysport® is injected into the target muscle, and depending on the procedure, these injections can take between 5 and 30 minutes to complete. Expect the full effect of your Dysport treatment to be visible between 1 to 2 weeks post-treatment. There is minor discomfort during the procedure and little healing time post-procedure.

Dysport injections typically last three to four months for cosmetic purposes, however for some might last 5 months.

Dysport injections are a common cosmetic procedure that can be applied to various areas of the body. The 3 most common sites people target with Dysport are:

  • Frown lines

  • Crow’s feet

  • Forehead lines

  • Lines around the lips

  • Chin lines

  • Neck lines

Please note that Dysport is not right for you if you are allergic to cow’s milk protein or any of Dysport’s other ingredients, have had hypersensitivity to any neuromodulators or any other ingredient, or have an infection at the planned injection site. People that should avoid Dysport are those that are currently pregnant, currently breastfeeding, over 65, or have a neurological disorder like myasthenia graves.



Do not receive a Dysport injection if: you are allergic to Dysport or any of its ingredients, or cow's milk protein; you had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product, such as Myobloc®, Botox®, or Xeomin®; or you have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
