Now there’s a new way to treat frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles in Vero Beach: Dysport®. Made with the same purified protein as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® is an exciting injectable alternative that’s been cleared by the FDA. If you’ve been considering BOTOX® or another treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, maybe it’s time to try Dysport®.

Dysport® differs from BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments in several key ways:

Dysport® tends to spread further from the injection site than BOTOX®, making it better suited for treating larger areas.

Results of Dysport® treatments are usually visible sooner than results from BOTOX®. Dysport® results should begin to be visible after 1 or 2 days, while initial BOTOX® results usually take 3 to 5 days.

First, it’s important to understand that they treat specific facial lines called “dynamic wrinkles.”

Dynamic wrinkles are those caused by the repeated movement of facial muscles over time. Dysport® and BOTOX® work by relaxing facial muscles, allowing the skin to lie smooth and wrinkle-free.

Dysport is most commonly used to relieve facial wrinkles, especially in the forehead, between the eyes, and on “crows feet”. The beauty of this product is that it is  fairly straightforward to administer and typically have zero downtime. There are definitely “tips and tricks” on how to get the most out of your Dysport injections, which our staff will share with you on your visit. 

Dysport Pricing

The extent of the procedure may involve one or several areas of the face, and the appropriate dosage for each area may vary, making it difficult to provide a meaningful cost estimate until you are examined by a doctor.

The cost for Dysport® is $5 per unit. Anywhere from 50-60+ units are used per treatment area. Dysport® injections are around ½ as potent as Botox® and require more units for treatment.

What to Expect

Treatment with Dysport® is a very quick, in-office procedure…

Here's what to expect:
Treatment with Dysport® is a very quick, in-office procedure that causes only minimal discomfort (typically compared to an insect bite). No downtime is required, so you can get back to your usual activities immediately.

Results should be visible in 1 to 2 days and will last for up to 6 months. The procedure is easily repeatable, so you can keep your youthful-looking results fresh.


How does Dysport® work?
Simply, Dysport® blocks the signals from nerve ends from reaching muscles. It does so over a very small area and this results in the reduction of muscle activity. This temporarily prevents contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.

A minimum of 90 days should pass between treatments of Dysport®.

Can I use Dysport® and still look natural?
Absolutely. Dysport® temporarily reduces the look of your moderate-to-severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. The best use of Dysport® can result in a fresher, younger-looking you.
What are the common side effects of Dysport®?
Common side effects of Dysport® include: dry mouth, injection site discomfort or pain, tiredness and headache.
Who should not take Dysport®?
Do not take Dysport® if you:

– are allergic to Dysport® or any of the ingredients in Dysport®.
– are allergic to cow’s milk protein
– had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB),* Botox®(onabotulinumtoxinA)* or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA)*
– have a skin infection at the planned injection site
