How does Dysport® work?

With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows, Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.

Injection sites for Dysport


The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.

You should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days.

About your treatment

Treatment requires 1 injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows. Although office visit times may vary, the procedure generally takes about 10 to 20 minutes. Your healthcare professional will determine the exact placement of each injection to get results that are right for you.

After your Dysport® treatment

Ask your healthcare professional about any precautions you should take after your treatment. Call your healthcare professional or get medical help right away if you have any problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.


To maintain your improvements, you should discuss a treatment schedule with your healthcare professional. As with any botulinum toxin product, you should wait at least 90 days between treatments. The efficacy of Dysport has been established for up to 4 repeated treatments. The safety of Dysport has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments.
