About Dysport

Starkman Facial Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ offers patients numerous nonsurgical options for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that works similarly to BOTOX to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face.

Dynamic wrinkles are caused by reiterated facial movements and expressions (like laughing, frowning, and smiling) that, over several decades, make the facial muscles tight. This causes the overlying skin to have a grooved line that is visible even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specially created to correct one of the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines.

It temporarily blocks signals to the muscle so the line is smoother but with natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Starkman for more information about Dysport injectable wrinkle relaxer treatments to help you look more youthful.

Ideal Candidates

Dysport is ideal if you are looking for a nonsurgical option to improve moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by chronic muscle use, they can develop at any age and make you look mad, sad, or tired. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that addresses 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 at Starkman Facial Plastic Surgery see visible improvements in their appearance within a few days after their procedure. The results can last up to four months.

Procedure Technique

Dysport injections are administered in one of our private treatment rooms after your consultation and take about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic can be requested, but it is usually not needed since the injections are made with a fine-gauge needle that causes little discomfort.

Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed, and five carefully placed injections will be administered along the brow, followed by a cold compress to lessen swelling and bruising. After your injections at Starkman Facial Plastic Surgery, you can resume regular tasks, but you should try to avoid strenuous activities for at least one day.

What To Expect

After a Dysport treatment, you may see mild swelling and redness at and around the injection sites, but this generally will disappear in a few days. You should sleep upright for at least one night and continue to use a cold compress as needed. Results are commonly seen within a few days as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a smoother, softer appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months, and more treatments can be done at Starkman Facial Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ to maintain your results.

How much does Dysport cost?

The total cost will depend on the amount of Dysport required for your treatment. During your initial consultation, we will create your unique Dysport treatment plan and then offer a cost estimate. Ask about our current injectable treatment specials at Starkman Facial Plastic Surgery and the different payment methods we accept.

What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?

Both Dysport and BOTOX are cosmetic injections to improve dynamic facial wrinkles. Dysport results generally become visible faster than BOTOX. Additionally, Dysport results tend to last longer than BOTOX, and it has a better spread. During your consultation, your injector will help you understand if Dysport or another wrinkle relaxer is best for your treatment.

Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?

Most people don't know the difference between injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport, and fillers. Simply put, a wrinkle relaxer addresses dynamic wrinkles while a filler smoothes static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive movements, for example, smiling, frowning, laughing, and all of your other facial expressions. Dysport relaxes the muscle under the skin for a smoother appearance. Static wrinkles are from decreased skin elasticity so the injection fills the skin so it is even. During your initial consultation, we will listen to your concerns and goals and help you determine whether a wrinkle relaxer, a filler, or both will produce your best results.

Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?

At Starkman Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of aesthetic treatments that can be used to boost the results of your Dysport injection. Depending on your areas of concern and goals, your custom treatment plan may include Dysport injections for dynamic wrinkles, a filler for static wrinkles or volume in your cheeks and lips, and a laser skin treatment. Be open to ideas during your initial consultation so we can make a treatment plan that provides an outcome you're thrilled with.

How often should I get Dysport injections?

Dysport injection results can last for as long as four months. During your consultation, we will suggest how often you should get injections at our office in Scottsdale, AZ to maintain your results. You may schedule injections sooner or wait longer after you know how Dysport works on your wrinkles.
