What is Dysport®?
Wrinkles aren’t your style and the “frozen look” isn’t either. For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that are minimized, not your expressions.
And because Dysport delivers the natural-looking results people want, 97% of users say they’d do it again. Additionally, Dysport is approved in 69 countries and has 25 years of clinical experience worldwide.

Understand your skin
The more you know about your skin’s aging process, the better you’ll be able to keep it looking its best. Scroll down for helpful information and tips about between the brow frown lines and wrinkles so you and your healthcare provider can decide if Dysport is right for you.
Frown line facts
Fact 1: Creams and lotions don’t always cut it.
Your skin care regimen probably includes a number of over-the-counter cosmetic products. That’s perfectly fine. But when it comes to improving the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, a prescription treatment may be the right choice for lasting results.
Fact 2: It’s not an age thing.
Of course time is a factor. But wrinkles and frown lines between the brows don’t simply mean you’re getting older. They’re caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions1, which means they can even develop in younger adults. Frown lines, “elevens” or glabellar lines are the product of repeated movement of corrugator supercilii, procerus and depressor supercilii muscles. It’s the mark of an expressive face. Dysport lets you keep the expressions and minimize the evidence.
Fact 3: You don’t have to “live with ’em.”
You squint, you smile, you frown — wrinkles happen. That’s life. But that doesn’t mean you have to accept it. Dysport is here to help you stand up to the lines between your eyebrows and take control of your look.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dysport®
Find quick and simple answers about Dysport for treatment of frown lines between the eyebrows.
What is Dysport used for?
Dysport is a prescription injection administered by a licensed healthcare professional to treat moderate to severe frown lines (those wrinkles between the eyebrows).
Medically, it’s a botulinum neurotoxin (abobotulinumtoxinA), an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent. It temporarily prevents specific muscle movements that cause frown lines.
What are Dysport injections?
Administered by a licensed healthcare professional, Dysport is supplied as a single-use, sterile 300-unit vial. The dose of Dysport for the treatment of glabellar lines (frown lines between your eyebrows) is a total of 50 units injected equally among the specific muscles. The dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product that you may have previously used.
How long does it take to administer?
Although office visits can vary, the procedure generally takes 10 to 20 minutes.
How long does it take Dysport to work?
Though results vary, there is typically a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows within 2-3 days.1-3*
