Dysport

Do you have frown lines that make you look angry even when you’re not? Many of my patients tell me that they’d like to smooth out their wrinkles, but are afraid to look stiff and unnatural. The fact is that you can look naturally relaxed with Dysport—but only if it’s done correctly. Like Botox, it’s a purified protein that works by relaxing overactive, wrinkle-causing muscles, so that the overlying skin smoothes out. However, there are some ways that it’s different from Botox.


Here’s what you should know about Dysport:


What areas can be treated? Dysport is most effective in areas where wrinkles are caused by overactive muscles that squish and crease the skin. Read more...


How is it different from Botox? In my experience, Dysport takes effect faster than Botox—often, within a day. Read more...


What’s it like to get a Dysport treatment? I start each treatment by carefully evaluating your face and how your muscles move. Read more...


How many injections will there be? Each patient is different, and my secret to giving you a natural-looking result is to design the treatment that will work best for you. Read more...


Anything I need to do after my Dysport treatment? You may resume normal activity right after your treatment. Read more...


When will I see results? Most people start to see results within a day or two. Read more...


How long will it last? Dysport treatments last an average of 4 months, although this depends on what area is treated and how much is used.
