Dysport is an injectable treatment that works in a similar manner as BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, which reduce and soften lines and wrinkles on the face. By offering Dysport at our Katy, League City, Pearland, and Sugar Land, TX locations, we are giving you more options to relax your wrinkles within a wider "spread" or area. Wrinkles are created by repetitive facial movements and expressions (like laughing, smiling, and frowning) that eventually make the facial muscles tight. This causes the overlying skin to have an etched line that is visible even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specifically formulated to treat one of the most common wrinkles: the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows by temporarily paralyzing the muscle so the skin is smoother. We know you want natural-looking results that don't "freeze" your face. Learn more about Dysport injectable treatments at Advanced Dermatology to help you look more refreshed.

Is Dysport right for me?
Dysport is ideal if you are looking for a nonsurgical treatment to correct moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by repetitive use, they can develop at any age and make you look mad, tired, or sad. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that smoothes 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.
Dysport Treatment Technique
Dysport injections are performed in one of our treatment rooms after your consultation, and the injection session should take about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually not needed since the injections are made with a fine-gauge needle that causes minimal discomfort, but it can be requested. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and several carefully placed injections of Dysport will be administered along the brow, followed by a cold compress to minimize swelling and bruising. After your treatment at Advanced Dermatology, you are free to resume normal tasks, but you should try to avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours.
What should I Expect from Dysport treatments?
After a Dysport treatment, you may have mild swelling and redness around the injection sites, but this should dissipate on its own in a few days. You should sleep upright the first night after your appointment and continue to use a cold compress as needed. Results are usually seen within a few days as the visibility of your frown lines is reduced for a smoother, softer appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months and follow-up treatments can be performed at Advanced Dermatology to maintain your results.
How much does Dysport cost?
The total cost depends on how much Dysport is required to attain your desired results. During your initial consultation, your injector will develop your unique treatment plan and then offer a cost estimate. Ask about our current specials at Advanced Dermatology and the different methods of payment we accept.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
BOTOX and Dysport are safe and effective to correct dynamic facial wrinkles. The results of a Dysport injection usually become visible faster than BOTOX. Also, Dysport tends to last longer than other relaxers, and it spreads to a larger coverage area. During your consultation, your injector will help you determine whether Dysport or BOTOX is better for your needs and goals.
Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Most patients do not understand the difference between injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport, and dermal fillers. A wrinkle relaxer treats dynamic wrinkles, while a wrinkle filler treats static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive movements, such as smiling, laughing, frowning, and other facial expressions. Dysport relaxes the creased muscle under the skin for a smoother appearance. Static wrinkles are from decreased skin elasticity, so a dermal filler plumps the skin to make it look even. During your consultation, your injector will ask about your concerns and goals and help you determine if a wrinkle relaxer like Dysport, a dermal filler, or both will produce your best outcome.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
At Advanced Dermatology, we offer a number of nonsurgical treatments that may be added to enhance the results of your Dysport injection. Based on your areas of concern and goals, your personalized treatment plan may include Dysport injections, a dermal filler for static lines or volume in your cheeks and lips, as well as a skin treatment. Be open and honest during your consultation — so we can create a plan that will deliver amazing results.
How often should I get Dysport injections?
Dysport injection results may last 3 – 4 months. In your initial consultation, your injector will recommend how often you should get injections at our offices in Houston, Katy, Pearland, League City, and Sugar Land, TX, to maintain your results. You may get treatments more often or wait longer once you see the results from your initial Dysport treatment.
