What is Dysport?
Dysport is a muscle relaxer facial injection similar to BOTOX that smoothens moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Made of the same substance as BOTOX, abobotulinumtoxinA (Botulinum toxin type A), Dysport relaxes the muscles under the skin leaving the face looking natural and soft. After a Dysport injection, patients are able to control their facial expressions and overall look while limiting overall movement so that wrinkles and lines cannot form.
Dr. Matthew Barrows and his team of experienced dermatologists and practitioners are trained and skilled to administer Dysport. We offer this skin rejuvenation treatment at our Dallas, McKinney, Rockwall, Allen, and Gainesville dermatology offices.
Individuals who wish to soften the wrinkles and lines around their eyes and on their forehead may consider Dysport for a younger looking complexion. Dysport spreads further and faster than BOTOX so it is sometimes considered in areas where many lines appear together, such as with Crow's feet that collect on the corners of the eyes. It produces great results for patients seeking a nonsurgical skin rejuvenation.

Dysport is an effective wrinkle treatment medication, but must be administered with precision and care. Your dermatologist will mark the injection points on your face prior to treatment, to ensure that only specific areas are being targeted. Dysport is administered with a tiny needle, typically in 5 points on the forehead, between the brows, as well as on the sides of the eyes where lines span out. Slight discomfort may be experienced in some patients during and after the treatment, therefore a numbing agent is often applied prior to the procedure. Dysport is performed in our office during an appointment that lasts about 30 minutes.
What to Expect
Patients should still expect mild swelling and redness at and around the injection sites. This is common in all patients, but will only last a few hours. Dysport is an outpatient treatment that allows patients to immediately get back to their regular routines. Patients will begin to see a noticeably smoother, brighter, and more youthful appearance within a couple of days after treatment. Dysport typically lasts about 3-4 full months.

We invite you to call our dermatology office to inquire about Dysport and our other line of injectable fillers and wrinkle treatments. If Dysport is the right choice for you, we often recommend combining the treatment with another nonsurgical skin rejuvenation procedure such as a chemical peel or a filler to maximize your results. To learn more, schedule a skin analysis so that the appropriate treatment plan can be customized to meet your aesthetic needs.
