Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Reuel Aspacio offers both men and women numerous nonsurgical alternatives for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable treatment that works similarly to BOTOX to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are created by repetitive facial movements and expressions (like frowning, smiling, and laughing) that eventually make the facial muscles tight. This causes the overlying skin to have an etched line that is visible even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specifically formulated to treat one of the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows.
Dysport is an FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. After your appointment, you will notice the facial muscles gradually relaxing over the next few days as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles diminish.

Dysport is ideal if you are looking for a nonsurgical treatment to correct moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by repetitive use, they can develop at any age and make you look sad, tired, or mad. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that smoothes dynamic wrinkles without giving you a "frozen" face. Since Dysport spreads to treat a cluster of wrinkles, it is also ideal for Crow's feet, the fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes. Most patients at Summerlin Dermatology see visible improvements a few days after their treatment that typically last up to four months.
Here are some of the areas we can improve with Dysport:
- Forehead wrinkles: Small amounts are injected into the forehead muscle to soften horizontal forehead lines
- Crow’s feet: Wrinkles around the eyes that are accentuated by smiling and squinting
- Lateral eyebrows: Injections near the side of the eyebrows can keep eyebrows elevated and give a pleasing position to the eyebrow and a more open appearance
- Bunny lines: Wrinkles along the sides of the nose that appear when you crinkle your nose
- Gummy smile: A smile that is too "toothy" in which a person’s upper gum appears
- Downturned mouth: Small amounts of Dysport can help to correct downturned corners of the mouth
- Pebbled chin: A wrinkly or pebbled chin with changes sometimes referred to as "orange skin"

Dysport injections are performed in one of our treatment rooms after your consultation with Dr. Aspacio, taking about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually not needed since the injections are made with a fine-gauge needle that causes minimal discomfort, but it can be requested. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and five carefully placed injections of Dysport will be administered along the brow, followed by a cold compress to minimize swelling and bruising. After your treatment at Summerlin Dermatology, you are free to resume normal tasks, but you should try to avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect
After a Dysport treatment, you may have mild swelling and redness around the injection sites, but this should dissipate on its own in a few days. You should sleep upright the night of your appointment and continue to use a cold compress as needed. Results are usually seen within a few days as the visibility of your frown lines is reduced for a smoother, softer appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months and follow-up treatments can be performed at Summerlin Dermatology to maintain your results.
