How long does Dysport last on the forehead?

Dysport typically lasts 3-4 months in most patients. Many patients will return every 3 months in order to maintain their results and avoid allowing the wrinkles to return. That being said, this time frame is an average, and some patients return more often, while others are able to maintain relatively good results with injections every 6 months (although this is uncommon).

All the best,

Yes, it is possible to have multiple areas of concern treated at the same time with Dysport.

Dysport lasts approximately 3-4 months in most patients. Yes, it is possible to have multiple areas of concern treated at the same time with Dysport; in fact, it is a very common practice to treat the forehead, glabella (frown lines between eyebrows), and crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes at the same time. I suggest visiting a board-certified dermatologist for a consultation and custom Dysport treatment.

Dysport Injection Longevity

How long the results of a Dysport injection last can vary significantly from patient to patient. Typically, however, the treatment can be effective for about 3-4 months. This estimate is dependent on how your body reacts to and absorbs the injection, as well as on patient upkeep and environmental factors. It may be appropriate to have a touch-up injection to maintain your results.

Dysport can last up to 4 months. This will vary from person to person. You should not be treated more than every 90 days. Our Biospa offers free consultations.

Dysport for wrinkles

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Most patients see improvement within several days of injection with Dysport. The result 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 forehead lines

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Dysport has the same active ingredient as Botox for treating lines in the forehead.  The onset of action seems to be a day or two faster for Dysport in some individuals and, anecdotally, it may last longer for some patients in the forehead and around the eyes.  Studies show that Dysport may work better in the forehead than Botox though they both should last 10-16 weeks on average.

How Long Does Dysport Last at Forehead

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Dysport normally lasts around 3-4 months. The maximum effects of Dysport are usually seen at about 2 weeks, so if a touch up is required, you can generally treat the same area again at that time. If you are treating a different area, then you may do that at the same time or on a different day without having to wait 2 weeks.

Frequency and Duration of Dysport

Like Botox Cosmetic, Dysport typically lasts between 3-4 months, depending on the person and the amount of Dysport injected.  It is safe to schedule subsequent Dysport injections back to back in other areas on the face, such as glabellar lines, crowsfeet, lines running alongside of nose, and wrinkles above the lip.  If your doctor went too conservative on your forehead and you do not see a result within 2 weeks, I recommend scheduling a follow up appointment for a touch up.  I hope this helps!

Effects of Dysport on Wrinkles

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

Thank you for your question. Dysport can last an average of 3-4 months depending on an individual's metabolism. You may return for another injection before it has completely metabolized, around 2-3 months. You may have Dysport performed on other areas such as between your brows (glabella), crow's feet, bunny lines, etc. Be certain to be under the supervision of a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon with expertise in injectables for the safest and most effective treatments. I hope this helps.

Both Dysport and Botox last approximately 3-4 months.  It is fine to have Dysport back to back once you feel like the effects are wearing off.
