Fort Worth Dysport®
For a smoother, refreshed appearance
We love a good skincare routine, but even the best skincare products cannot stave off the frustrating signs of aging. “Expression lines” such as deep forehead creases, frown lines, and crow’s feet can make you appear older, tired, and stressed. Take your anti-aging efforts to the next level with Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA).
Exclusively performed by experienced injectors, Fort Worth Dysport injections can quickly rejuvenate your appearance by softening those pesky lines and wrinkles. Dysport is safe and effective for men and women, with visible improvements noticeable within a few days and results can last up to 3-4 months.

What is Dysport?
Repeated facial movements cause fine lines and wrinkles to form, particularly on our forehead and between our brows. Dysport is a neuromodulator (botulinum toxin type A), similar to Botox, that is injected into muscles to temporarily reduce moderate-to-severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). Dysport works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to muscles to reduce muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles.
Is Dysport right for me?
Dysport may be right for you if you are between the ages of 18 and 65 and are in generally good health. We do not recommend Dysport if you have a milk allergy, as it contains albumin (a milk-derived protein).
Additionally, using medical-grade skincare products will enhance the anti-aging benefits of Dysport treatments and protect against future damage. We are ready to curate your custom regimen optimized for your skincare goals.
How can I avoid bruising from Dysport?
You can minimize or avoid bruising from facial injectables by following these guidelines:
- Avoid medicines and supplements that thin your blood for 2 weeks before your appointment (aspirin, NSAIDs, vitamin E, fish oil)
- Avoid alcohol 2-3 days before getting Dysport
- Avoid strenuous activity immediately after treatment
- Avoid touching or massaging the injection site
- Use ice packs before and after your injections
- Use a topical arnica cream or take an oral arnica tablet before your appointment and for 7 days following treatment or as directed by your provider.
What can Dysport treat?
Dysport is FDA-approved to treat moderate-to-severe glabellar lines (the frown lines between the eyebrows known as the “11s”). Our expert injectors administer Dysport between the brows to minimize the appearance of these lines. Dysport can be used off-label, as well, in many other areas.
Dysport is also a safe and effective treatment for a variety of concerns:
- Reduces the appearance of crow’s feet
- Softens horizontal forehead lines
- Diminishes lines around the mouth (marionette lines)
- Improves the look of neck bands (vertical strips of visible muscle called platysmal bands)
- Reduces excessive sweating
When will I see results from a Dysport treatment?
Many patients see noticeable improvement within a couple days of treatment and these results may continue to improve for about 2 weeks. Results vary from patient to patient.
How long does Dysport last?
Visible results have been shown to last up to 5-6 months, but most patients notice effects diminishing by 3-4 months. Each patient’s experience with Dysport is unique, and we are here to advise you on what to expect and when to make your follow-up appointments to maintain your rejuvenating results.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Yes! Dysport will not prevent you from making facial expressions, only the lines and wrinkles that usually accompany them. The goal of treating muscles with Dysport is not complete paralysis, but rather reduction in muscle activity, which creates gentler muscle contractions and fewer wrinkles.
How much Dysport will I need?
The amount of Dysport needed to achieve your desired aesthetic goals depends on numerous factors and will vary from person to person. We will advise you further during your consultation.
Does Dysport have any side effects?
Dysport side effects are generally mild, short-lived, and easily tolerated. The most common side effects with Dysport are redness, swelling, and headache.
Dysport vs. Botox®
Dysport and Botox are neuromodulators that temporarily reduce muscle activity to soften and smooth fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by repeated muscle movements. That said, there are some slight differences:
- Dysport may last longer than Botox.
- Dysport may achieve faster visible results (2-3 days with Dysport vs. 4-7 days with Botox).
- Dysport is less concentrated and has smaller molecules, meaning Dysport spreads more.
- The unit measurements of Dysport and Botox differ (roughly 2.5 units of Dysport equals 1 unit of Botox).
