Wrinkles. We try tons of creams and serums that promise to reduce the appearance of these fine lines, but sometimes we just need a little extra help. Dysport injections, also known as wrinkle relaxers, are the go-to method for many to reduce the visible signs of aging. Dysport is a safe, effective injectable that helps relax wrinkles and allows our patients to regain a youthful appearance with noticeable results in as little as 3 days (median onset time). 

We recommend coming in for a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced Nurse Injectors who will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan. 

What causes wrinkles?

There are several factors that contribute to the onset or worsening of frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow's feet, including:

  • Sun exposure
  • Aging and the loosening of collagen fibers
  • Smoking 
  • Repeated facial expressions 

What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?

Both injectables can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines; a consultation will help determine which option (or combination of treatments) will provide you with the best results. If your main concern is addressing the appearance of these creases on your face, a wrinkle relaxer like Dysport is a great option that will give you a natural, subtle appearance. If you are interested in adding volume, filling deep folds and giving your face more structure, you may want to consider dermal fillers. 

How does Dysport work?

With 1 treatment, Dysport can temporarily reduce the movement of certain upper facial muscles that cause wrinkles, reducing the appearance of frown lines and crow's feet. The injection will block the signal from the nerve to the muscles, relaxing the muscle that causes deep lines and wrinkles to form. The untreated areas will still work normally, allowing you to freely show natural facial expressions. 

How soon will I see results?

Some patients notice results within 24 hours of treatment with a median onset time of 3 days. Results may last up to 4 months. To maintain results, we recommend maintenance treatments.



Myth: Dysport will make me look frozen

Truth: Although the ingredients in Dysport “relax” the muscle, you will not look frozen. Dysport will give you subtle, natural results without prohibiting movement on other areas of your face. 

Myth: The ingredients in the injection are toxic

Truth: Although Dysport does contain purified botulinum toxin, it is safe to inject when it is administered properly and safely by an experienced Nurse Injector such as the Injector team at True Balance. 

Myth: Everyone will be able to tell I've had Dysport injections

Truth: While many of us seek cosmetic injectables to erase years of aging, many want to keep their treatments a secret. With Dysport, your results will be subtle and natural — your appearance will be refreshed without revealing your secret!

You can look your best and feel your best with Dysport at any True Balance location! For more information or to book an appointment call or text:
