What is Dysport?

After years of showing facial expressions like smiling and frowning, you may begin to develop lines and wrinkles in the upper face. With Dysport, you express yourself without the lines. Dysport is a neuromodulator injectable, targeting the facial muscles to temporarily reduce wrinkle-causing contractions to produce smoother skin. This results in a younger appearance that still looks natural. 

I was so happy with my experience and outcome as well. Dr. Shaddix has a calming manner (which I really needed), is so professional and really listened to what I wanted and the result is amazing and natural looking - very proportionate to my body just as I had hoped. I highly recommend him”

Candidates for Dysport

Candidates for Dysport are those who want to smooth out their lines and wrinkles in the upper face that are not severe enough to warrant a surgical procedure like the facelift. The most common areas for Dysport include frown lines between the brows and forehead lines. Dysport should not be confused with dermal fillers, which also smooth out your wrinkles, but are typically used in the lower face on wrinkles that are present even with the face relaxed. However, Dysport is safe to use along with a dermal filler. Dr. Shaddix can help you determine which formulas are best for treating your wrinkles. Dysport can improve your first signs of aging non-surgically, so you won’t have to worry about much discomfort or downtime.

The Treatment Process

To begin treatment, you might have a topical anesthetic applied to numb the treatment area and ensure your comfort. The treatment area will be mapped out to determine precise injection points around the brows and forehead. The Dysport formula will then be injected beneath the skin. The number of injections you need will depend on the extent of your wrinkles; however, the treatment process is usually complete in about 10 to 20 minutes. 

Recovery and Results

There is no required downtime after your treatment with Dysport; however, you might experience some slight swelling, bruising, and itching at the injection sites for a day after your treatment. During this time, you should avoid strenuous exercise and be careful not to rub the injection site. 

You can begin to enjoy the results of your treatment with Dysport in just a few days. You’ll notice diminished frown lines and forehead lines for a younger, more refreshed appearance. The results of Dysport can last for up to four months. After this time, you can choose to have a touch-up session to maintain your smooth skin. 

At Shaddix Plastic Surgery it's a very laid back, low pressure environment where my goal is to educate, and not to sell.”
