Up to 5 months


Typically you can results lasting 3-5 months. Some patients see less while some see more. There is no solid answer, everyone is different. I see patients with results up to 4-5 months and they all love Dysport. Best of luck to you!

Keeping frown lines hidden with Dysport


Dysport routinely lasts three to four months. The treatments will make frown lines gradually disappear over time. The interesting point about any neurotoxins is that most patients' wrinkles will not worsen due aging with routine use of medications like Dysport or Botox.

You typically will need to get treated every 3 to 4 months, on average.  The more consistent you are with your treatments the weaker your forehead muscles will get and those frown lines will become less noticeable and almost completely gone in time. 

Good luck.

Dysport for frown lines


The effects of Dysport last for 4-6 months for many of my patients. However results do vary from patient to patient, so your results might be slightly different. Once your Dysport starts to wear off you can go back to your dermatologist for touch-up injections to keep the frown lines hidden.

How often are Dysport procedures needed to keep away frown lines


Dysport, like Botox, is typically injected every 3-4 months. For people that work out a lot, more frequent treatments may be needed. Also, it is important that the correct dose is used- places that offer discount injections frequently do not inject adequate amounts of product (hence the bargain price). In these instances, the product wears off quickly.

Finally, some people just wear off quickly. Fortunately, they tend to last longer once the procedure has been repeated a few times and for people that have been treated for yearrs, they may only require treatment every 5 months.

How long does Dysport last?


My average patient says that Dysport lasts for about 3-4 months. However, some patients claim to  have results that last 6 mos.. and I believe that with time it lasts a bit longer.  Some new studies show that around the eyes, Dysport seems to last longer than botox.

How long does Dysport last


Dysport and Botox are very similar in that they last about 3-4 months average on most people, when injected by a good injector with correct dilution. Please make sure you see a board-certified physician, as they will be trained in proper dilution techniques.

Dysport Duration of Action


 Like Botox, the duration of action varies from patient to patient.  For most patients, results typically last 3-4 months.  It is best to to return for a treatment before your frown lines completely return.   This ensures that the muscles continue to stay inactive.  Over time, as those muscles become weaker, you will actually get longer duration from your product.
