Dysport® for Dynamic Wrinkle Treatment

Dysport® is an injectable wrinkle treatment that works to smooth out facial folds and lines by temporarily immobilizing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Like BOTOX®, it uses the same type of ingredient to relax muscles that cause issues like frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. As with any injectable, the most important decision you can make is choosing who administers it. At Schaffer Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Schaffer, personally administers all injectables to ensure best possible outcomes.

What Kinds of Wrinkles are Treatable with Dysport®?

Ideal for treating brow furrow lines, often referred to as an “11”, Dysport® also works to smooth forehead lines. It can also be used to address wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), on the bridge of the nose (bunny lines) and on the upper lip (smoker’s lines). Additionally, platysmal bands, or wrinkles that occur in the neck, are treatable with Dysport®. It can also be used to raise the eyebrows, lift the corners of the mouth, decrease dimpling in the chin and slim the face.

Most any wrinkle, whether it is dynamic (appearing after muscle movement) or static, can be addressed with Dysport®. Whether you want to reduce existing wrinkles or slow the development of future wrinkles, Dysport® is a smart choice.

What Should I Expect From Getting Dysport®?

Your Dysport® injection session will only take a few minutes, and injections are virtually pain-free—although if you are concerned about pain, ice or topical numbing cream can be applied. The product disperses farther than BOTOX® after injection, which is why it needs to be injected with great precision and care. After receiving your injections, you can expect to see results develop in as early as two days, which is slightly faster than BOTOX®. As far as downtime goes, most patients can return to work or normal daily routines immediately.

Dysport® Results

Dysport® results are subtle, yet remarkable. The effects will last for about three to six months depending on your metabolism rate, at which time you will need repeat injections to maintain results. Wrinkle treatments with Dysport® do require more units than BOTOX®, but with proper administration, each gives equally effective results.

Why Should I Choose Schaffer Plastic Surgery for Dysport® Wrinkle Treatments?

Even though Dysport® is FDA-approved and incredibly safe for wrinkle treatments, it should still be administered in a medical environment by a licensed, experienced professional. When receiving any injectable, your outcome will only be as good as the person administering your injections. At Schaffer Plastic Surgery, your injections will be administered personally by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Schaffer, who has received extensive training and understands the complexity of facial nerves and muscles.

An advantage to using Schaffer Plastic Surgery for Dysport® injections it that your treatments can be combined with additional services we offer to achieve amazing results. Dr. Schaffer routinely combines Dysport® with other injectables like dermal fillers to give subtle effects similar to a facelift without the surgery or downtime. Laser resurfacing treatments can also be conducted the same day you receive injectables, which means you leave our office with a glowing complexion that will look even better over time.

Your safety and happiness with natural-looking results are our top priorities here at Schaffer Plastic Surgery. Your timeline, budget and goals are important considerations Dr. Schaffer accounts for when developing your personalized treatment plan which may include other treatments in combination with Dysport®. In order to provide the safest, longest-lasting results possible, he will thoroughly plan each injection before administering it. In fact, Dr. Schaffer will likely spend more time planning your injections than it takes to administer the treatment.
