Plastic surgeon Dr. S. Benjamin Albright offers Houston, TX men and women numerous nonsurgical alternatives for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable treatment that works similar to BOTOX® to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are created by repetitive facial movements and expressions (like frowning, smiling, and laughing) that eventually make the facial muscles tight. This causes the overlying skin to have an etched line that is visible even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specifically formulated to treat one of the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows. Dysport temporarily relaxes the muscle so the skin is smoother, but with natural-looking results that don't "freeze" your face. Learn more about Dysport wrinkle relaxer treatments at Albright Plastic Surgery to help you look more refreshed.
Dysport is ideal if you are looking for a nonsurgical treatment to correct moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by repetitive use, they can develop at any age and make you look sad, tired, or mad. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that smoothes dynamic wrinkles without giving you a "frozen" face. Since Dysport spreads to treat a cluster of wrinkles, it is also ideal for Crow's feet, the fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes. Most patients see visible improvements a few days after their treatment that typically last up to four months.
Plan Your Procedure
What to expect
Dysport injections are performed in one of our treatment rooms after your consultation, taking about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually not needed since the injections are made with a blunt-tip cannula that causes minimal discomfort, but it can be requested. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and five carefully placed injections of Dysport will be placed along the brow, followed by a cold compress applied to the forehead to minimize swelling and bruising. After your treatment, you are free to resume normal activities but you should try to avoid strenuous activity for at least 24 hours.
After a Dysport treatment, you may have mild swelling and redness around the injection sites, but this should dissipate on its own in a few days. You should sleep upright the night of your injection appointment and continue to use a cold compress as needed. Results are usually seen within a few days as the visibility of your frown lines are reduced for a smoother, softer appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months and follow-up treatments can be performed to maintain your results.
