What is Dysport?
Dysport is another injectable offered at Burlington Medical Aesthetics that is similar to Xeomin and Botox. Dysport is a neuromodulator used to block muscle movement in areas experiencing wrinkle formation. It contains the same core toxin as the others, called botulinum.
Dysport injections are most often used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows but is just as versatile as Xeomin. Although most patients and physicians have a difficult time telling the difference when it comes to end results, some have reported that Dysport’s effects were slightly faster setting in. It also has a wider diffusion area, which has certain benefits when treating particular sites.
How does Dysport work?
With a small needle, Dysport is injected into the target muscle, and depending on the procedure, these injections can take between five and 30 minutes to complete. Expect the full effect of your Dysport treatment to be visible between one to two weeks post-treatment. There is minor discomfort during the procedure and little healing time post-procedure.
Dysport injections typically last three to four months for cosmetic purposes.
What’s the difference between Xeomin & Dysport?
The two brands of neuromodulators offered at Burlington Medical Aesthetics are Xeomin and Dysport. At Burlington Medical Aesthetics, we will recommend the right brand for you depending on the purpose of your treatment.
One of the main differences amongst these brands is that Xeomin is considered a “negative injectable.” Unlike Dysport, Xeomin does not contain any additives, so the body is less likely to become resistant to it.

What areas are commonly treated by Dysport?
Dysport injections are a common cosmetic procedure that can be applied to various areas of the body. The 3 most common sites people target with Dysport are:
- Moderate to severe vertical frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
What is the standard procedure like?
When undergoing Dysport treatment, the patient is placed on an exam table, usually in a sitting or upright position. Treatment areas are then cleaned with a non-alcoholic solution to maintain sterility. Occasionally, topical anesthetics are applied to the target areas. To prevent bleeding or bruising, the physician will often apply pressure around the target site as the injection is administered. The amount/type of wrinkles determines how many injections are made.
Is Dysport treatment painful?
Dysport injections are administered using a small needle. As such, there is potential for a minor amount of discomfort. However, injection sites are sometimes prepped by way of anesthetic creams or ice packs before the procedure. This added step greatly reduces any pain or discomfort one might experience from the injection.
How long is the average session?
Dysport treatment sessions vary from patient to patient, but typically last between five and 30 minutes.
How safe is Dysport treatment?
Dysport uses botulinum toxin type A, which can be harmful. However, the small doses found in cosmetic Dysport treatment are generally considered safe by the medical community, and was approved for cosmetic use by the Health Canada in 2018.
As with any medically prescribed substance, it is important to discuss any concerns you may have with a trained health practitioner.
What are the main benefits of Dysport?
The main benefit to Dysport treatment is that it reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Some therapeutic applications for Dysport include treating muscle stiffness due to limb spasticity and cervical dystonia (neck muscle disorder).
How quickly can I see results?
The effects of Dysport injections are usually noticeable between one and two weeks. Some users and physicians have reported observing faster initial effects.
Should I expect any side effects?
Any medical procedure has risks. It’s important that you consult with your family doctor and/or a trained dermatologist to assess any potential risks considering your own medical history.
What should I expect in terms of recovery time?
In general, there is very little, if any, recovery time associated with a standard Dysport injection.
How much per procedure?
Burlington Medical Aesthetics provides cosmetic and therapeutic Dysport treatments that are offered at comparable price points. For more information on pricing and payment options, contact our beauty care specialists today.
How often should appointments be booked?
