What is Dysport used for?
Dysport is another botulinum-based formula that was approved by the FDA for the treatment of facial wrinkles in 2009. This formula has been shown in some studies to work more quickly and last longer than its forerunner Botox. Dysport is commonly used for forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and lipstick lines (vertical lines that appear above the lip line).

"Dr. Jeffrey Olson is the best there is. I’ve been to a lot of there types of Doctors and Dr. Olson really stands out. He is a gifted magician of a doctor, and he never goes overboard. He also gives about the most gentle shot I’ve ever had, and I have a horrific phobia of needles. His office is low key, relaxed and lovely. And he is a calming force of nature. I recommend him to all my friends and my wife is also a patient of his, and loves him as well."- M.D. / Yelp / Mar 14, 2019
"What can I say.. Dr. Olson was amazing, this is not the first time I have had injections.. I have tried other establishments both here and In NYC. As soon as you walk in the door you he makes you feel welcomed. He explains the entire procedure with mirror in hand. Dr. Olson is so knowledgeable and his bedside manner is easing, and I had zero pain after the procedure. My concern was to be ensured it looked natural. I highly recommend JPO Aesthetics and Dr. Olson, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Dr. Olson...By the way love your billboard.."- T.L. / Google / Jul 02, 2021

What to Expect with Dysport
Following a Dysport session, you may have mild swelling and redness at and around the injection sites, but this should subside within a few days. You should sleep upright for at least one night and may want to apply a cold compress as needed. Results are usually noticeable within 1 –3 days as the visibility of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a softer, smoother appearance. These results should last for about 3 – 4 months and follow-up treatments may be done at JPO Aesthetics in Palm Springs, CA to extend your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is the Main Difference Between Dysport and Botox?
Dysport lacks several binding proteins compared to Botox. As such, it may be of consideration if people have had a lessened response with Botox over time and maybe better for areas where more spread or surface area is desired such as periorbital crow’s feet or forehead.
Any Special Concerns With Dysport?
The product contains “albumin”, a cow’s milk protein, so those with an allergy (albeit very rare) should not consider Dysport. This does not mean lactose intolerance in which case the product is not contraindicated – meaning it is safe to use.
Should I get Dysport or a Wrinkle Filler?
Many patients do not know the difference between injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport, and fillers. A wrinkle relaxer addresses dynamic wrinkles while a wrinkle filler addresses static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the result of repetitive movements, like laughing, smiling, frowning, and all of your other expressions. Dysport relaxes the muscle under the skin to smooth the dynamic wrinkle. Static lines are the result of low skin elasticity, so a wrinkle filler plumps the area so it looks even. During your consultation, your injector will ask about your concerns and goals to help you determine whether Dysport, a dermal filler, or both will deliver your desired results.
Can Dysport be Combined with Other Treatments?
At JPO Aesthetics, we offer many aesthetic treatments, which can be added to complement the results of your Dysport injection. Depending on your areas of concern and goals, your personalized treatment plan may include Dysport for dynamic wrinkles, an injectable filler for static wrinkles or lip and cheek augmentation, plus a skin treatment. Be open and honest during your initial consultation so we can make a plan that provides the results you love.
How Often Should I get Dysport Injections?
Your Dysport results can last for up to 3 – 4 months. In your initial consultation, your injector will discuss how often you should return to our office in Palm Springs, CA to sustain your results. You may increase the frequency of your treatments or further apart once you know how Dysport works on your wrinkles.
