If frown lines have you feeling sad, Dysport® can give you a reason to smile again. Dysport® is a filler designed to reduce frown lines without surgery and is available at Dr. Mohit Sood’s clinics.
What Is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a prescription facial filler that is designed to reduce or eliminate frown lines between the eyebrows. It has also been approved for the treatment of cervical dystonia, which is the abnormal positioning of the head and neck in adults. It contains albumin, a substance derived from plasma that naturally occurs in the bloodstream.
Benefits of Dysport®
Dysport® provides the same benefits as Botox® when it comes to relaxing forehead muscles, yet requires less medication in order to be effective. Injections take less than 30 minutes and provide noticeable benefits within a few days after receiving them. Full effects are usually noticed in about a week.
How Is Dysport® Administered?
The area where Dysport® is to be injected is cleansed with an antiseptic. Dr. Sood will then administer a pre-determined amount of gel into the face or neck to achieve the desired results. Dysport® will be injected into the forehead area if treating wrinkles but may be injected into another area of the face or neck if treating cervical dystonia. It works much in the same way as Botox® by relaxing certain muscles so that frown lines are diminished or discomfort in the head and neck is eliminated.
Preparing for Dysport®
Prior to receiving Dysport®, patients visiting us should do the following:
- Avoid taking any medications that might react negatively to it
- Refrain from having other facial surgeries or dermal filler injections
- Receive permission from your primary care physician if receiving Dysport® for cervical dystonia to ensure it does not interfere with any other planned treatment
Recovery from Dysport®
Shortly after receiving Dysport®, patients should keep an eye out for side effects such as difficulty swallowing, breathing problems, or irregular heartbeat. Notify Dr. Sood immediately if these side effects become severe.
How Much Does Dysport® Cost?
The amount of medication you need and your purpose for taking it will affect your cost. Your particular cost, along with payment options, will be discussed during your consultation. To make payment as affordable as possible, we accept cash, checks, major credit cards, and CareCredit® financing.
Is Dysport® Right for Me?
If you are plagued by severe frown lines or are experiencing extreme discomfort from cervical dystonia, Dysport® could help you obtain relief.

- Any medications you are currently taking
- Whether or not you have experienced an allergic reaction to any facial filler in the past
- Cosmetic or other facial surgeries that might be planned for the future
- Your health history, to determine if you have an underlying condition that would put you at a greater risk for side effects
