Dysport is a drug that helps reduce frown lines and wrinkles in the upper face. Known medically as abobotulinumtoxinA, it offers many of the same benefits as BOTOX, with subtle differences. Dysport blocks the actions of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter in the nervous system. When injected, the muscles under the skin relax, and the visible wrinkles on the outer layer of the skin soften. Some practitioners use Dysport and BOTOX interchangeably, preferring BOTOX on the forehead while using Dysport around the eyes. Dysport has shown to act faster than BOTOX. It generally diffuses further from the injection site offering a greater “spread”.
"Dr. Connors and his staff are some of the most wonderful people I have met since moving to Atlanta.

"Maggie is the GOAT of injectables! She’s knowledgeable and not pushy. When I asked her what she thought I needed, she handed me a mirror and said “What do you not like about what you see..” What a great way to get an answer. I’ve had injectors in the past just push push push...made me feel like I needed an entire facelift mixed with laser mixed with you name it. Maggie is my go to forever! Worth the money!"- G.B. / Google / Nov 22, 2019
"I’m very thankful a friend referred me to Dr.Connors! He is extremely professional & took time to address all of my concerns. When he got out his ruler and measuring device (no clue what it’s called) to measure symmetry etc at the consultation, drew pictures, brought out a diagram.. I knew his attention to detail was what I wanted and needed! I had so many questions and concerns and he did not rush me at the consultation. His pricing is fair and not over priced. His office staff are very professional as well. One year later & I’m still happy with the decision to get my breast augmentation done with Dr.Connors!"- A.V. / Google / Nov 15, 2019
"I had a mommy make-over including a tummy tuck, breast reduction, and liposuction. I look like a brand new person. I don’t think I realized how much damage was done to my body from 3 C-sections until the repair was done. Dr. Connors is amazingly skilled, kind, caring, and his entire staff follows his example. The nurses and desk staff are lovely and have been so helpful and responsive to me. I would recommend this practice highly!"- H.M. / Google / Oct 09, 2019
Dysport is injected via a fine needle to specific areas on the face. Prior to the injection, these areas are marked, and a numbing anesthetic is applied. The amount of medicine injected varies by patient depending on their aesthetic goals. Some individuals will have deeper, broader wrinkles while others wish to target fines lines (which requires less product). Dysport is administered during an in-office appointment that typically lasts about 30 minutes.
What To Expect
Dysport results in virtually no downtime after the treatment is given. Some mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites. Ice packs are often compressed to the site immediately after treatment to help calm the skin and reduce these after effects. Patients are able to resume their normal activities during the same day as their treatment. Results will become apparent within a couple of short days.
The cost for a Dysport injection will vary depending on how many syringes of the medicine are needed during the time of treatment. The cost can range between $350 for a full syringe up to $800, or more, for several.

Dysport or BOTOX?
Both Dysport and Botox are safe, effective for facial wrinkles and widely available. A skilled practitioner can tell which medication may offer the best benefit. The results of a Dysport injection typically become visible faster than BOTOX, last a bit longer and spreads to a larger coverage area.
Dysport or Filler?
Patients seeking to rejuvenate their facial appearance may look into injectable fillers, as well as products such as Dysport to attain results. Both skin treatments work to decrease facial wrinkles, but use varying approaches. Injectable fillers add volume to certain facial structures, which creates a smooth result on the surface. It is common today to combine products such as Dysport and BOTOX, with an injectable filler. This has been labeled a “liquid facelift” and provides outstanding results for individuals who do not want surgery.
How Often for Treatment?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3-4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
