No matter how old you are, it’s never too late to recapture a youthful look and improve the appearance of your skin, so at Dermaworks® Medical Aesthetics Clinic in Ottawa we are proud to offer Dysport™, an effective and safe solution for fighting frown lines.
It can be easy to forget that our face muscles constantly work hard; not only do they help to provide face structure and movement, but the muscles above and between eyebrows contract to smile, frown, laugh, or even express worry.
Repeated facial movements over time cause the muscles between the brows to wrinkle, fold, or sag, creating frown lines. Aging isn’t the only cause of frown lines; younger adults can also develop frown lines from repeated squinting, with the lines becoming deeper and more obvious as the years pass.

Dysport is a prescription injection approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Like BOTOX, the product is made from a neurotoxin that works by preventing certain muscle motions. Dysport injections may be more effective for certain facial areas, particularly in treating crows’ feet. Dysport was developed with a slightly different chemical variation of the botulinum toxin, blocking nerve signals to targeted muscles to smooth lines and wrinkles.
While both products are similar in that they limit muscle motion, there are differences. Dysport is a smaller-sized molecule and produces results more quickly, typically within 2 to 5 days, rather than 4 to 7.
In determining which product will produce the best results, the most important factor is not whether BOTOX or Dysport is injected; above all, your results are based upon the skills and injection technique of your doctor. Dr. Vassiliou has garnered a reputation for excellence in anti-aging treatments and is extremely skilled in injecting Dysport in the right quantities and zones to create very natural-looking results.
Ten days prior to treatment, avoid taking aspirin or other blood-thinning medication or supplement to help avoid developing bruises at the injection site. Talk to your doctor if you need these medications. The injections themselves are not exceptionally painful and feel like a sharp pinch or insect bite. The process requires only a few minutes to complete. You may be left with redness at the injection site which fades in a few hours. You are free to apply makeup immediately after treatment. Do not lie down,exercise or sleep after treatment to avoid the product relaxing the wrong muscles.
Many people who come to us at Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic in Ottawa are here because they want restore a more youthful, alert, fresh look, and choose to have Dysport injections. With forehead lines and creases smoothed, the appearance of crow’s feet diminished, your entire face looks younger. The eyelids may appear more open, and you will look relaxed and alert. To maintain a refreshed, rejuvenated facial appearance, retreatment is typically required about every four months.
Many people are nervous about injectables; they have seen people who have had treatments that left the face looking frozen or unnatural. Dr. Vassiliou is very conservative in treatment with these products, and her patients trust her for her ability to create a very natural-looking results with Dysport or other injectable product. Ready to look younger, refreshed, and rejuvenated? You are invited.
The injection needle is very small, but you will feel the “pinch.” Most people don’t find treatments overly painful, but if you have concerns, we can apply a topical anesthetic to make treatment more comfortable for you.
As the Dysport begins to affect the area, you will see your forehead or crow’s feet start to smooth. Your skin regenerates quickly, and the treated area will soon have fresh cells without the wrinkled effect. For deeper creases or lines, while the skin is now smooth, the lines may still be visible, in those cases they can sometimes be treated with tiny injections of a dermal filler. As you continue to have treatments, these lines will soften in appearance. Of course it is best to start treatment early before they become etched in your skin.
