What is Dysport?
Dysport (aka abobotulinumtoxinA) is an injectable neuromodulator that smooths lines and wrinkles for up to four months. It’s FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines, also called glabellar lines or “11s,” between the eyebrows.
It’s also used off-label to correct other expression lines, like crow’s feet and forehead creases.
Dysport is a form of botulinum toxin type A, so it’s similar to Botox, Xeomin, and Jeuveau. Like its competitors, Dysport works by temporarily blocking the communication between nerves and muscles, to stop injected muscles from contracting and wrinkling the overlying skin.
Beyond smoothing existing wrinkles, the treatment can also be used preventively, to minimize muscle movement and stave off future wrinkles and forehead lines.
Dysport can be used for:
"When it comes to minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, especially around my eyes, I trust Blu Cocoon and their use of Dysport to give me the results I desire. I notice results in less than 3 days! Blu Cocoon's consistent evaluation of my skin and their technique is by far the reason I return to them regularly over the years - to achieve that subtle wrinkle free, natural and youthful appearance."

Frequently Asked Questions
Dysport may trigger an allergic reaction for some people, since it contains a protein found in cow’s milk. (Botox and Xeomin don’t.) This is not the same thing as lactose intolerance. If you have a cow’s milk allergy, talk to your medical practitioner before considering Dysport.
