Our team at Gordon Plastic Surgery offers The Woodlands, TX men and women several nonsurgical options for rejuvenating the skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that works just like BOTOX to reduce and soften dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by recurrent facial movements and expressions (like laughing, smiling, and frowning) that over time make the facial muscles tight. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a grooved line that is visible even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specially designed to correct one of the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows. It temporarily relaxes the treated muscle so the line is smoother but with natural-looking results that don't "freeze" your face. Hear more about Dysport injectable treatments at Gordon Plastic Surgery to make you look refreshed.
Dysport is ideal if you are looking for a nonsurgical procedure to address moderate to severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by chronic use, they may become visible at any age and make you look mad, sad, or tired. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without leaving a "frozen" appearance. Dysport spreads to treat a cluster of wrinkles, and it is also ideal for Crow's feet, the small wrinkles in the corners of the eyes. Most patients at Gordon Plastic Surgery notice visible improvements 1 – 3 days after their procedure that typically remain for as long as four months.

Injections of Dysport are performed in one of our treatment rooms following your consultation, lasting around 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is generally unnecessary because the Dysport is injected with a fine-gauge needle that causes minimal pain, but it can be applied if requested. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and five well-placed Dysport injections will be administered across the eyebrows, followed by a cold compress to lessen swelling and bruising. Following your procedure at Gordon Plastic Surgery, you can perform daily tasks, but you should avoid taxing activities for at least a day.
What to Expect
Following a Dysport session, you may notice mild swelling and redness at and around the injection sites, but this should dissipate on its own in 1 – 3 days. You should sleep upright for at least one night and may want to apply a cold compress as needed. Improvements are usually noticeable in 1 – 3 days as the severity of your lines is decreased for a softer, smoother appearance. Your results typically remain for around 3 – 4 months and touch-up treatments can be scheduled at Gordon Plastic Surgery in The Woodlands, TX to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both BOTOX and Dysport are injections that improve dynamic facial wrinkles. The results of a Dysport injection generally develop faster than BOTOX. Additionally, Dysport tends to last longer compared to other relaxers and it spreads to a larger coverage area. During your pre-treatment consultation, your injector will help you determine whether Dysport or another wrinkle relaxer is best for your treatment.
Should I receive Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Most people do not understand the difference between injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport, and dermal fillers. A wrinkle relaxer addresses dynamic wrinkles while a wrinkle filler treats static lines. Dynamic wrinkles are the result of repetitive movements, like smiling, laughing, frowning, and other facial expressions. Dysport relaxes the muscle under the skin for a smoother appearance. Static wrinkles are caused by a lack of elasticity in the skin so a wrinkle filler plumps the skin so it is even. During your consultation, your injector will ask about your concerns and help you decide whether a wrinkle relaxer, like Dysport, a dermal filler, or a mix of both will produce your desired outcome.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
Gordon Plastic Surgery performs many cosmetic treatments, which can be used to boost the results of your Dysport injection. Based on your concerns and wants, your personalized treatment plan may include Dysport, a dermal filler for static lines or volume in your cheeks and lips, as well as a skin treatment. Be open during your initial consultation so we can make a plan that will deliver the results you love.
How often should I get Dysport injections?
The results of Dysport may last up to four months. In your consultation, your injector will discuss how often you should schedule appointments at our office in The Woodlands, TX to sustain your results. You may increase the frequency of your treatments or schedule appointments further apart once you see how long your initial results last.
