Pain Relief from migraine headaches and TMJ Dysfunction


Eliminate and reduce the visible signs of aging with Dysport injections at our Guelph medical spa. This non-invasive treatment reduces the appearance of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, laugh lines and crows feet. Women and men seeking Dysport treatments come from Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo to see our highly experienced Cosmetic and Medical Nurse Injector.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is a neuromodulator commonly used for the treatment of frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. It is a non-invasive injectable that prevents the contracting of facial muscles which cause wrinkles and fine lines. By relaxing the facial muscles, the appearance of wrinkles, creases and fine lines are erased or significantly reduced, providing a younger and refreshed appearance.

How does Dysport work?

Dysport is injected by units with a very fine needle. The sensation feels like a tiny poke or a prick. The number of units required varies by individual, depending on the muscle that is being treated and how strong that muscle is. Men usually require more units than women because of their musculature.

Dysport treatments take 10-20 minutes and no downtime is needed. Every appointment at Luminosity Studios medical spa in Guelph begins with our experienced Nurse Injector discussing the desired effects you want to achieve with your treatment. Dysport results are most noticeable after 7-10 days, but can take up to 2 weeks to show. On average Dysport results last about 3 months. Over time the neuromodulator wears off and the muscles return to regular activity.

Botox and Dysport: Similarities and Differences
Both Botox and Dysport are effective neuromodulator treatments that eliminate and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. They work the same way in the body, relaxing facial muscles that cause fine lines, creases and wrinkles. Dysport is more diluted than Botox, has a smaller molecular structure and spreads more quickly. For large surfaces like the forehead, this is an advantage. For smaller areas that require more precision like crow’s feet and eyebrows, Botox may be a better option. Consult with our cosmetic injector to find out which treatment is right for you.

What is Dysport used for?

People use Dysport for cosmetic and medical purposes.

  • Dysport is used as a cosmetic treatment to eliminate or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. People use Dysport to smooth the lines in their forehead, around the mouth (laugh and smile lines), above the lip (smoker lines), nose (bunny lines) and around the eyes (crows feet). Other common Dysport treatments include lip flip to achieve a fuller upper lip, and gummy smile for those who show more gum than they would like when they smile. More people are starting preventative treatments at younger ages to delay the onset of lines and wrinkles.
  • Dysport is used as a medical treatment to provide pain relief from chronic migraine headaches and for TMJ dysfunction (jaw pain from clenching and grinding). Dysport injections can also be used under the arms to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). Some insurance companies provide coverage for medical Botox treatments.
