Discover a different formula for relaxing wrinkles with a softer, feathering effect

At Resurrect Skin MD, we know there’s no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” treatment plan when it comes to achieving your aesthetic goals. That’s why we offer a range of effective treatment options for giving you smoother, healthier and younger-looking skin.

One of our more popular options for erasing unwanted lines and wrinkles is Dysport, an injectable neurotoxin that works similarly to Botox. However, unlike other neurotoxins, Dysport provides a softer, subtler and more natural result due to its unique formula, which uses smaller molecules that spread more easily once injected beneath the skin.

Dr. Burns knows that navigating the world of medical aesthetics can be confusing, so he and his team have simplified the process by choosing only the best products, devices and treatment options available. If you want to achieve smooth, wrinkle-free skin, come in for a consultation and let us create a personalized treatment plan just for you.

How Does Dysport® Work?

Dysport is an injectable neurotoxin used to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions. Over the years, every time we laugh, wink or smile, the muscles that control these movements cause lines to become etched into the skin. Dysport works by temporarily relaxing these facial muscles in targeted areas.

When Dysport is injected directly into the muscles that cause expression lines to appear, it blocks the nerve signals that tell them to contract. This causes the treated muscles to relax and the overlying skin to smooth out. Dysport is effective on a variety of areas on the face, including the forehead, glabella (between the eyebrows) and crow's feet.

Dysport® vs. Botox®: What’s the Difference?

Dysport is an anti-wrinkle injectable that uses the same active ingredient found in Botox (botulinum toxin). It also works by blocking nerve signals around the injection site to reduce muscle activity and stop wrinkles in their tracks. However, Dysport is formulated in a way that allows it to spread and diffuse more easily in treated areas. The result is a softer, feathering effect that can create more natural-looking results. Many patients prefer Dysport for this reason.

Dysport® Treatment Areas

Dysport is a versatile treatment, which makes it a popular choice among patients who are looking for a nonsurgical solution for reducing the signs of aging. By targeting specific muscles or areas of the face, Dysport can provide targeted and effective results without the need for invasive procedures or extensive downtime.

Dysport is used on the upper face to eliminate moderate to severe frown lines. Injections into the upper face will leave the forehead smooth and wrinkle-free for 3 to 4 months.

However, Dysport can also treat other signs of aging, including:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Bunny lines on the nose
  • Lip lines
  • Chin dimples

Like Botox, Dysport is used to temporarily reduce the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements, known as dynamic wrinkles. Dysport can also be used to treat certain medical conditions, such as migraines, excessive sweating and muscle spasms. During your consultation, Dr. Burns and his talented team of nurse injectors will evaluate your concerns and develop a personalized treatment plan just for you.

Is Dysport® Right for Me?

Dysport is an excellent option for men and women who are looking to reduce the appearance of existing crow’s feet, forehead lines and other signs of aging. It can also be used as a preventative treatment to help slow the development of facial wrinkles. If you’re interested in achieving smoother skin with Dysport, you’re likely a good candidate if you:

  • Want to soften the appearance of existing lines and wrinkles
  • Want to prevent new lines and wrinkles from developing
  • Prefer a quick, nonsurgical solution to anti-aging
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcome of treatment
  • Are prepared to maintain your results with regular touch-ups
  • Have a larger treatment area that’s easier addressed with Dysport

Dysport may also be ideal for individuals who have developed a resistance to Botox. Due to some of the proteins in Botox, some people may experience an immune response to the injectable, which makes it less effective. However, these proteins are less prevalent in Dysport, making it a suitable alternative. Another option includes Daxxify®.

What to Expect During Your Dysport® Treatment

At Resurrect Skin MD, we strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for our clients. We want to be the highlight of your day, so if you require numbing before any procedure, you can relax in a deluxe massage chair in one of our private numbing rooms. Let the rest of the world fall away as the topical anesthetic takes effect and for a truly enjoyable experience.

When you come in for your appointment, you’ll be in and out in under 30 minutes. This can vary depending on your unique needs and goals, but most Dysport treatments take only 10 to 20 minutes to complete. During the procedure, your provider will use a fine needle to inject a small amount of product beneath your skin in specific areas, targeting the underlying facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to appear with every expression you make.

Afterward, you’ll be free to return to work or go home and immediately resume all normal activities. However, Dr. Burns recommends avoiding rubbing or massaging the treated areas, as this can cause the Dysport to spread to other muscles. You should also avoid strenuous exercise, hot tubs and saunas for at least 24 hours after your treatment.

"As a leading expert in aesthetic medicine, I trust Dysport to deliver effective, reliable and natural-looking results for my patients. Dysport is a safe and minimally invasive treatment that can help anyone feel more confident and self-assured in their own skin. “

Dysport® Recovery & Results

After your Dysport treatment, your skin may feel tighter than usual. You may also notice some mild redness, bruising or swelling at the injection site. These side effects are normal and will subside within a few hours or days. If necessary, you can use an ice pack to help reduce residual swelling and apply makeup to cover any redness or bruising.

Dysport provides natural-looking results that typically begin to appear two to three days after your treatment. The results are subtle and develop gradually, which will have people trying to guess what your anti-aging secret is. Once your results have fully developed over the next week or two, you’ll be able to enjoy smoother skin for 3 or more months. If you notice unwanted lines and wrinkles beginning to reappear in treated areas, it may be time to schedule a follow-up and undergo another treatment to maintain your youthful appearance.

You have questions? We have answers.

Is Dysport® Better Than Botox®?

Dysport is made from the same botulinum toxin as Botox and Xeomin, but it has a slightly different chemical makeup. This may make it more effective for certain patients. However, no neurotoxin is necessarily “better” or “worse” than the others— the one that’s right for you depends on your goals and preferences. Don’t worry; during your consultation, our team will help you decide which is best for you and take the guesswork out of the equation.

How Long Does Dysport® Take to Work?

Dysport temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles and fine lines. It does this by blocking the signals between the nerves and the muscles, preventing the muscles from contracting. However, for this to occur, the neurotoxin needs to be absorbed by the muscle fibers, and this process can take a few days. Most people begin to notice results two to three days after their appointment.

When Does Dysport® Start to Wear Off?

Dysport can last for up to five months, but its strength may start to diminish after three or four months. As the effects of Dysport wear off, you’ll notice a return of fine lines and wrinkles in treated areas. Fortunately, you’ll be able to restore your results by scheduling a touch-up appointment. With repeated treatments, some people find that they can maintain their results for longer periods of time as the facial muscles become “trained” to relax.

How Much Does Dysport® Cost?

Like Botox, Dysport is priced by the number of units received. Due to the differences in formulation, more Dysport is needed to achieve results comparable to Botox. However, the price per unit is lower, so the cost works out to be about the same.
