What is Dysport?
Dysport® removes moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without dramatically changing the look of the entire face. With just one injection into each of five key points between the eyebrows, Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscle, temporarily stopping the muscle contractions that create frown lines.
Dysport treatments are most commonly performed to achieve the following results:
- Quickly, safely and effectively remove unwanted frown lines from the forehead
- Offer temporary results with virtually no downtime or discomfort

Step 1 Consultation
A thorough consultation is an important first step when deciding if a Dysport treatment is a right option for you. We thoroughly discuss your desired results and provide an honest, professional opinion on how best to achieve those results. We also make certain that you are a good candidate for treatment, taking into account your skin type, age, health, medical background and other factors that could affect the safety and effectiveness of your treatment. All of our consultations are conducted with the goal of making sure our patients feel comfortable, confident and informed about Dysport.
Step 2 Treatment
Before your treatment, we will answer any questions that may have come up since your consultation. Every effort is made to make certain that all of your concerns are addressed and you are as comfortable as possible.
With just one injection into each of five key points between your eyebrows, Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscle, temporarily stopping the muscle contractions that create frown lines. Treatments generally take between 10 and 20 minutes.
Step 3 Recovery
After treatment, you may experience some swelling, redness, pain, bruising and tenderness, but these are very temporary side effects. You can go back to your regular activities right after treatment.
Step 4 Results
Results do vary, but patients typically enjoy a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines with smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. The overlying skin is smooth and wrinkle-free while the underlying, untreated muscles are still able to contract, allowing you to make natural facial expressions after treatment.
Dysport results are not permanent and typically last three to six months depending on your skin type and skin condition. For sustained results, we suggest having multiple treatments no more frequently than every 90 days.
Q: Are Dysport treatments right for me?
If you want to erase stubborn frown lines from your forehead, Dysport treatments may be the right option for you. Candidates must be between the ages of 18 and 65 and in good health with no serious medical conditions that could create complications.
Q: What causes frown lines?
When you concentrate, squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contractions, those wrinkles and lines linger even when your muscles are at rest. Because frown lines can be caused by muscle contractions and not just the natural aging process, even young adults can develop them.
Q: Why choose RTH Plastic Surgery for my Dysport treatment?
When choosing a cosmetic professional for Dysport treatments, there are three important qualifications to consider: training, experience and personal attention. Your cosmetic technician should be overseen by a plastic surgeon who has completed an accredited plastic surgery residency program and is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Above all, your cosmetic professional should be someone you trust to deliver exceptional results and perform a safe and effective treatment.
At RTH, our cosmetic technicians are Dysport specialists with years of experience performing these treatments. We spend the necessary time with every patient to answer any questions and address any concerns. We make it a priority to ensure our patients are well-informed and completely comfortable with their decisions. We know that your time is valuable, which is why we maintain an efficient treatment calendar and use the latest techniques, products and technologies to maximize your results.
Q: Will my insurance cover Dysport treatments?
Insurance companies commonly do not cover an elective or cosmetic treatment like Dysport unless it is performed to correct a medical or health condition. If you plan to use insurance as payment, we strongly suggest consulting with your provider to discuss if the treatment is covered in part or in full by your current plan.
Q: Will my Dysport treatment results look natural?
Dysport treatments are minimally-invasive, providing results without the need for any surgical procedures, thus eliminating the possibility of scarring or other signs that a treatment was performed. The overlying skin is smooth and wrinkle-free while the underlying, untreated muscles are still able to contract, allowing you to make natural facial expressions after treatment. During your consultation, we will thoroughly explain what results to expect.
Q: How long will results last?
The longevity of results varies, but typically results last between three and six months depending on your skin type and skin condition. For sustained results, we suggest having multiple treatments no more frequently than every 90 days.
Q: Can I have additional treatments in combination with my Dysport treatment to enhance results?
Yes, your RTH doctor can recommend additional services that may enhance your desired results including other wrinkle reducing treatments like chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion and dermal fillers.
