Most patients see improvement within several days of injection with Dysport. The results will usually last about three to four months at which point the muscle action gradually returns and the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear.
Over time, however, and with repeated injections, the lines and wrinkles will become less severe as the muscles are trained to relax.

Dysport For Frown Lines

Dysport usually lasts about 3-4 months, but can vary from person to person. Your muscle movement gradually returns over a few months as the product wears off. Some people like to have their frown lines treated once they see movement coming back, others only treat the area twice a year. It depends on your personal preference. The less movement you have, the less likely that the lines will deepen over time.

Treatment with Dysport can temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines. You should wait at least 90 days between Dysport treatments. The safety of Dysport has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments.

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!

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.

Dysport and Frown Lines...

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

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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.
