Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
Do not let frown lines between your eyebrows define you. Try Dysport for natural-looking, fast-acting and long-lasting prescription injection to help smooth out frown lines between the eyebrows—without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face.
Dysport works to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. One injection into 5 points between the eyebrows decreases activity of the specific muscle that cause unwanted wrinkles.
Wrinkles are often caused by repeating certain movements by contracting muscles. By decreasing muscle activity, Dysport is fast acting and temporarily smooths out and treats frown lines. Patients choose Dysport because of its fast acting, natural looking, and long lasting (up to 5 months) results.

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.
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.
Though results vary, over half of users see improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows within 2-3 days.
One treatment of Dysport provides results that may last for up to 5 months.
The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea.
Dysport® and Botox are both made from botulinum toxin type A. All botulinum toxins have the same mechanism of action: blocking the release of acetylcholine (ACh) and preventing the muscles from contracting to maintain the aesthetic effect. However, 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.
