What is Dysport?

Board-certified physician Dr. Jon Ricks offers Frisco, TX men and women numerous nonsurgical options for reducing wrinkles and lines to rejuvenate the skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that works like BOTOX® to reduce and soften dynamic wrinkles and lines on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by recurrent facial expressions and movements (like frowning, smiling, and laughing) that over time make the muscles of the face tight. This causes the overlying skin to have a furrowed line that is visible even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specifically designed to address the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. It temporarily relaxes the treated muscle — so the line is smooth but with natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen.

Ideal Candidates

Dysport is ideal if you are looking for a nonsurgical option to improve mild, moderate, or severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by repetitive use, they may become visible in younger patients and make you appear sad, mad, or tired. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that smooths dynamic wrinkles without giving you a "frozen" face. Since Dysport's formula spreads to reach a cluster of wrinkles, it's also great for Crow's feet (the fine wrinkles in the corners of the eyes). Many patients at Ciao Bella Medical Spa in Frisco, TX, see visible improvement in their dynamic wrinkles a few days following their injections that may remain up to four months.

Our Injection Technique

Dysport injections last around 15 – 30 minutes and are administered in one of our treatment rooms following your consultation with Dr. Ricks. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually not needed because the injections are made using a fine needle that causes minimal pain, but it can be requested. The skin will be cleaned, and five carefully placed Dysport injections will be administered across the brow, followed by a cold compress to minimize bruising and swelling. Following your injections at Ciao Bella Medical Spa, you may perform regular tasks, but you should try to avoid strenuous activities for at least a day.

What to Expect

Following a Dysport session, you may notice mild redness and swelling around the injection sites, but this generally will disappear within a few days. You should sleep upright for the first night and continue to apply cold compresses as needed. Improvements are often noticeable in 1 –3 days as the appearance of your frown lines is decreased for a smoother, softer appearance. Your results should last for about 3 – 4 months, and more treatments may be performed at Ciao Bella Medical Spa in Frisco, TX, to maintain your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Dysport cost?
Your cost is based on the amount of Dysport used for your treatment. During your consult, your injector will create your unique treatment plan so they can estimate your cost. Ask about our current injectable treatment specials at Ciao Bella Medical Spa and the different payment methods we accept.

What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both BOTOX and Dysport are cosmetic injections to treat dynamic wrinkles. Results from Dysport typically become visible faster compared to BOTOX. Also, Dysport results tend to last longer compared to other wrinkle relaxers, and it is better for larger areas. During your initial consultation, your injector will help you determine whether Dysport or another wrinkle relaxer is best for your treatment.

Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Many patients don't understand the different uses for injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport and fillers. A wrinkle relaxer addresses dynamic wrinkles, while a filler treats static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive motions, for example, frowning, smiling, laughing, and other facial expressions. Dysport relaxes the creased muscle under the skin to smooth the dynamic wrinkle. Static lines are from decreased skin elasticity, so a wrinkle filler plumps the skin so it looks smooth. During your consultation, your injector will listen to your concerns and help you determine if a wrinkle relaxer, a wrinkle filler, or a mix of both will deliver your best outcome.

Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
At Ciao Bella Medical Spa, we offer many aesthetic treatments that can be used to enhance your Dysport results. Depending on your needs and goals, your personalized plan may include Dysport, a dermal filler for static wrinkles or volume in your lips and cheeks, plus a laser skin treatment. Be open during your initial consultation so we can create a plan that delivers an outcome that leaves you thrilled.

How often should I get Dysport injections?
Dysport injection results can help for 3 – 4 months. In your initial consultation, your injector will suggest how often you should return to our office in Frisco, TX, to maintain your results. You may get treatments more often or wait longer once you see how long your initial results last.
