Pia Baroncini lives a busy life as the founder of LPA and Baroncini Import & Co., a podcast host, and a content creator, not to mention a wife, mother, daughter and friend. When she’s not busy working, she likes to travel, eat good food, indulge in beauty products and create memories with her family. With her demanding schedule, Baroncini shares that Dysport®* (abobotulinumtoxinA) is the key to cutting down on time getting ready so she can tackle each day head on.
*Please read Full Important Safety Information, including Distant Spread of Toxin Effect Boxed Warning, at the end of this article. Indication: Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) for Injection is an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with procerus and corrugator muscle activity in adults ˂65 years of age.
Baroncini says Dysport is the core of her beauty routine and allows her to have a much more dialed-down regimen because her wrinkles have been minimized. “Dysport is a treatment for the lines in between your brows commonly called your 11’s,” explains Baroncini. “My favorite thing about it is its natural-looking results. Dysport reduces the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles, but it also helps maintain my natural expression.”
New York board-certified dermatologist Dennis Gross, MD, explains, “Dysport injections temporarily limit muscle movement, relaxing the area and smoothing the look of wrinkles in between the eyebrows. This is a great, safe option for treating wrinkles that develop from repeated muscle movement and contraction, which can leave you looking angry and tired if left untreated.”
By getting her Dysport treatments regularly, Baroncini feels her at-home beauty routine is enhanced. She reports wearing much less makeup day-to-day, focusing mostly on concealer, brows, lashes and a little gloss, because Dysport makes her feel more confident in her own skin.1†‡ And she’s not the only one—Dr. Gross says his patients also feel more confident post-Dysport treatment.1†‡
One reason Dr. Gross loves using Dysport in his practice is because it delivers quick2-4§, natural-looking results with minimal pain or downtime. “The treatment itself takes around 10-20 minutes, and patients start to see visible improvements in as little as 24 hours after being injected,2-4§” says Dr. Gross. “This has become the go-to ‘refresh’ treatment at my practice for patients who are looking to address wrinkles quickly before special events or social gatherings.”1
†Subject-reported at 12 months (N=120) after two treatments six months apart in a phase IV,multicenter, prospective study.

§Based on subject self-assessment. The onset of response at day 1 was 15% (16/105) in GL-1 and 33% (65/200) in GL-3. In the DREAM study, the onset of response at day 1 was 33% (66/200).The median time to onset of response was 3 days in GL-1 (55/105; 52%) and GL-2 (36/71; 51%), and 2 days in GL-3 (110/200; 55%)
Another perk about Dysport? It’s long-lasting.2-5‖ With one injection into each of the 5 points between and above the eyebrows, results may last up to 5 months.2-5‖ This is key because then you can get fewer injections for smooth, uniform results, Dr. Gross explains, and “fewer injections help to create a softer, more natural look.”
‖GL-1 and GL-3 evaluated subjects for at least 150 days following treatment. Based on a ≥1- Grade GLSS improvement from baseline utilizing data from two double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled pivotal studies (GL-1, GL-3) in a post-hoc analysis

WARNING: DISTANT SPREAD OF TOXIN EFFECTS
What is the most important information you should know about Dysport? In some cases, the effects of Dysport and all botulinum toxin products may affect areas of the body away from the injection site. Symptoms can happen hours to weeks after injection and may include swallowing and breathing problems, loss of strength and muscle weakness all over the body, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, or loss of bladder control. Swallowing and breathing problems can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre‐existing before injection. These effects could make it unsafe for you to drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.
Do not have Dysport treatment if you: are allergic to Dysport or any of its ingredients (see the end of the Medication Guide for a list of ingredients), are allergic to cow’s milk protein, had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product, such as Myobloc ® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin ® (incobotulinumtoxinA), have a skin infection at the planned injection site, under 18 years of age, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
The dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dose of any other product you may have used.Tell your doctor about any swallowing or breathing difficulties and all your muscle or nerve conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis [ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease], myasthenia gravis, or Lambert‐Eaton syndrome, which may increase the risk of serious side effects including difficulty swallowing and difficulty breathing. Serious allergic reactions have occurred with the use of Dysport. Dry eye has also been reported.
Tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, including if you have surgical changes to your face, very weak muscles in the treatment area, any abnormal facial change, injection site inflammation, droopy eyelids or sagging eyelid folds, deep facial scars, thick oily skin, wrinkles that can’t be smoothed by spreading them apart, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant or breastfeed.
