What Is Dysport Used for?

Looking for a way to get back your youthful appearance? Wondering if Dysport could be the right treatment option for you? Here’s what you can target with this injectable when you visit Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center in Noblesville, IN, Shelbyville, IN, Danville, IL, Healdsburg, CA, and Ukiah, CA.

What Is Dysport Used for?

Frown Lines

When you furrow your brow, do you notice lines appearing in between your eyebrows? These lines are often called frown lines or glabellar lines. Over time, as your skin loses elasticity, these lines are going to become permanent.

You can get this injectable to help the muscles underneath the skin stay relaxed. This will help to reduce the appearance of your frown lines or even prevent them from showing up in the first place.

Forehead Lines

Another common place where you’re likely to see wrinkling is your forehead. When you lift your eyebrows, this makes horizontal lines appear in the area. Over time, these lines are going to become permanent, making you look perpetually worried or surprised.

This injectable is an effective way to smooth out these lines. You’ll not only look younger, but you’ll look much more relaxed and happier too.


The skin around your eyes is more delicate than the skin on other parts of your face. This means that it’s prone to showing signs of aging much sooner than other areas. One of the most common signs is crow’s feet, which are the little wrinkles extending from the outer corners of your eyes.

To reduce their appearance, you can get this injectable. It will relax the muscles under your skin and keep you looking young and healthy.


Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can be a difficult and embarrassing thing to manage. You may feel uncomfortable going out and doing the things you usually love, or you may avoid wearing certain clothes because you’re worried about sweating too much.

You can get Dysport injections to help reduce the amount that you sweat. This will help you feel much more confident in your body, and allow you to go out and do all the activities you enjoy without fear.

Cervical Dystonia

This is a condition that causes the muscles in the neck to contract sporadically and unpredictably. It can be uncomfortable and even painful to deal with. Unfortunately, there is no cure for cervical dystonia.

There are, however, ways that you can manage it. One of the most effective ways to do this is by getting this injectable. Because Dysport causes muscles to relax, this will prevent these painful contractions from occurring.


This refers to the involuntary tightening and contracting of muscles. In this way, it’s very similar to cervical dystonia. However, spasticity can affect all areas of your body including your arms and legs. Like cervical dystonia, it can be uncomfortable and even painful. Some contractions can last for several seconds, and it may be impossible to move this part of your body during this time.

Using an injectable neuromodulator like this one can help you manage your symptoms by keeping muscles relaxed and preventing these spasms.

What Causes Signs of Aging Like Wrinkles?

To better understand how this injectable can help you, it helps to understand why wrinkles appear in the first place. Wrinkles most commonly appear because of a combination of a loss of elasticity in the skin along with repeated facial movements.

As your skin loses elasticity, it becomes unable to “snap back” into place when the muscles underneath are relaxed. This results in the lines becoming permanent over time.

What Exactly Is Dysport?

Like Botox, this injectable’s main ingredient is Clostridium botulinum type A toxin. The word “toxin” may seem scary at first glance, but this injectable has been approved by the FDA for many years and offers a highly effective and safe way to deal with signs of aging.

When it’s injected into the skin, it acts as a neuromodulator. It forces the muscles it’s been injected into to relax by interrupting the signals that your brain sends to them telling them to tense up or contract. This will reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent new ones from showing up.

What Will Treatment Be Like?

Preparing for Treatment

Before you receive your injections, there are a few things you’ll need to do to prepare your skin. When you book your appointment with a qualified practitioner, they will make sure that you have complete instructions.

You’ll need to avoid certain substances in the day or two leading up to your appointment. You should avoid alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, and foods with high levels of salt and sodium. This is to prevent bruising around the injection sites.

Your Appointment

If you decide to get your treatment at our clinic in Northern California, we will make sure that the process is as comfortable for you as possible. To begin, we will clean the areas where you’re going to receive the injections. This will keep any bacteria from entering the injection sites. We’ll also mark the areas where we’re going to apply the product.

Before we begin injecting, we may apply a small amount of a topical numbing cream to help your treatment stay comfortable. Once your skin is ready, we’ll begin applying small amounts of the product at a time using a very fine and precise needle. This will ensure that you get the accurate results you want. The entire treatment process should take under an hour.


This is a non-invasive treatment which means that the recovery process is very simple and pain-free. As soon as your treatment is complete, you’ll be able to leave our clinic and get back to your regular life as long as you follow our simple post-treatment instructions.

Your skin is going to be more sensitive over the next couple of days, so avoid direct sunlight as it will burn more easily. You’ll also need to avoid strenuous physical activity that could make you sweat a lot. Make sure you also do not massage or scratch the injection sites.


Is It Safe?

When they see the word “toxin,” many people get nervous. Dysport is carefully formulated by professionals to provide results that are both effective and safe, so you don’t have to worry.

The most important thing to do is choose a qualified practitioner to receive your treatment from. The team at our clinic in Northern CA has performed this treatment countless times, and we know how to make sure you get the results you want safely.

When Will I See Results?

One of the benefits of this injectable is that it works very quickly. 2 to 3 days after your injection, you will begin to see the results of your treatment.

Over the next week or so, you will notice the lines and wrinkles on your face gradually diminishing until you have the youthful appearance you’ve been wishing for.

How Long Are My Results Going to Last?

Once your full results are apparent, you can expect to enjoy them for around 3 to 4 months. Different people will find that their results will last for different amounts of time. You can help your own results last as long as possible by taking care of your skin and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

When you have a better idea of how long your individual results will last, you and your practitioner can set up a treatment plan to ensure that you get your appointments when you need them.

What’s the Difference Between Neuromodulators and Fillers?

As we discussed earlier, neuromodulators help your skin maintain a youthful appearance by forcing the muscles underneath it to stay relaxed. This one in particular is best suited for the upper parts of the face. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, work by filling in lost volume, providing youthful fulness, and lifting sagging skin.

Depending on your individual goals, you may be better suited to getting one over the other. Your practitioner may also recommend getting a combination, as neuromodulators and dermal fillers can easily and safely be combined for the best results.
