Overview

Your facial appearance can be improved with Dysport, a cosmetic injectable similar to BOTOX, that is longer lasting and spreads further. Made of the same active ingrediant as BOTOX, Dysport is a patient favorite at Aydin Plastic Surgery to improve their moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines), crow's feet, lines on the face (upper third section), and neck wrinkles. Our double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Bill Aydin, can provide you with a consultation to discuss the different muscle relaxers that are on the market, and he will recommend which ones would work best for your skin. Visit our office in Paramus, NJ or White Plains, NY for more information.

Administering Dysport

As Dysport affects nerve and muscular function, injection sites must be marked for the purpose of accuracy. This is to avoid any unintended muscle to receive a dose. A tiny needle is used and the product is injected into specific spots on the face. Normally, topical anesthetic is applied to help with any discomfort during treatment. The medicine can target fine lines or the deeper creases by means of adjusting the amount of medication. A typical session can last up to 30 minutes. Depending on how severe the skin condition is, multiple treatments may be recommended.

During/After Treatment

One advantage to Dysport is that the results are visible within 2-3 days. Similar to any injection, mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites, but cold ice packs are applied immediately after the injection to help with this. After treatment, the patient will be able to go back to a normal routine without any downtime, but should refrain from any strenuous exercise for about 24 hours. Patients who have this treatment find results satisfying as the skin will appear softer and smoother.

Dysport FAQs

Dysport or Fillers?

Dysport, like BOTOX, is a safe alternative to correct facial wrinkles. Both of these drugs are known as muscle (or wrinkle) relaxers. Injectable fillers create a similar result, but the function behind the medicine is different. A filler works to add volume under the skin to improve facial fullness in areas where volume has been lost. This results in a smoother, softer surface. Many times, muscle relaxers are combined with an injectable filler to create maximum results. 

Dysport or BOTOX?

Dysport and BOTOX are very similar to each other, both relax the underlying muscles to give the skin an appearance that is smoother. A couple of key differences are that Dysport diffuses faster than BOTOX and so the results become more evident sooner. Dysport has also been shown to work better in some areas of the face than BOTOX (for example, the crow’s feet). This varies by patient.

Additional Treatments?

The results following a Dysport injection will last about 4-6 months. It is common for patients to return every quarter for follow-up treatment.
