Dysport® in West Palm Beach, Florida

Now you can target unwanted fine lines and moderate to severe frown lines, also known as glabella lines, with a Dysport® treatment. FDA-approved Dysport® eliminates glabella lines between your eyes and on your forehead.

Similar to BOTOX®, Prescription Dysport® injections temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.

Moreover, Dysport® may offer slight advantages in both activation time and possible duration of treatment. Dysport® injections may potentially treat excess sweating in the underarms, hands and or feet. Although no product allergy testing is required, we do not advise Dysport® during pregnancy or for patients with neuromuscular disorders.

Benefits of Dysport®

What can you expect from a Dysport® injection? A Dysport® treatment offers multiple benefits, including:

  1. Invisible Fill: Since manufacturers have refined dermal fillers over many years to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, you can rest assured your face won’t look “frozen.” The experienced professionals at our doctor’s office will give you the most natural looking results. Fills applied by an experienced professional will look completely invisible.
  2. Dysport® Injections Spread Well: Dysport® injections contain a lower protein concentration, helping them spread more evenly across the injection site than a BOTOX injection, for a more natural looking result.
  3. Dysport® Helps Prevent Wrinkles: Aside from treating existing wrinkles, Dysport® treatments help prevent the formation of new wrinkles. In fact, for most people, starting Dysport® at a younger age will prevent wrinkles from forming, because the muscles that usually cause them will be relaxed. Preventing wrinkles from forming is easier than treating wrinkles later on.
  4. Dysport® Has Virtually No Recovery Time: After your Dysport® injection at the doctor’s office, you won’t even need to take a day off from work or pause your normal routine because it’s a minimally invasive procedure. This procedure does not involve incisions or stitches, so you won’t have noticeable scarring or marks on your skin. You can schedule a Dysport® appointment during your lunch break and return to work right after. Visible side effects, if any, will be minute and temporary.
  5. Dysport® Picks Up Where BOTOX Left Off: When comparing Dysport® and BOTOX, patients who have had multiple BOTOX treatments over the years may start to notice a decline in efficacy. Why? Your body creates an immune response to the botulinum toxin that gradually becomes more effective at breaking down these toxins before they can affect your appearance. In a well-functioning immune system, the body creates more antibodies to fight the toxins in your bloodstream. Because it contains fewer proteins, Dysport® works when BOTOX does not because the body will not react as strongly to it.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dysport®?

While it can vary depending on age and health conditions, generally, patients above the age of 18 with good overall health seeking to temporarily improve the appearance of crow’s feet and glabella lines between the eyebrows are good candidates for Dysport®. Furthermore, patients should not have a history of allergies to Dysport® or its ingredients, including botulinum toxin, and must not be pregnant or breastfeeding.

At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, our Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Fredric M. Barr, M.D., F.A.C.S., has more than three decades of experience with cosmetic procedures, including these injections. During your consultation with our patient counselor, we will determine if Dysport® is the right treatment for your specific concerns and goals, based on your medical history and other critical factors. Whether you need two treatments or more, the doctor will examine the treatment area, and discuss potential risks and benefits, so you can make an informed decision.

What to Expect During a Dysport® Treatment

Using a very fine needle, we inject Dysport® into the muscles above your eyebrows and the bridge of your nose, forehead and crow’s feet. Performed with precision and attention to your personal needs, the treatment takes about 30 minutes or less.

What are the Most Common Side Effects of Dysport®?

Although generally safe and effective for laugh lines, glabella lines, crow’s feet, and moderate wrinkles, like most medical procedures, Dysport® can potentially have side effects that usually resolve in a few days, including:

  • Mild pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising

These temporary side effects should dissipate within a few days after the treatment. You can use over-the-counter medication and cold compresses at the injection site to alleviate them. As always, tell your doctor if symptoms persist or worsen, and follow post-procedure instructions.

Preparing for Dysport®

Before undergoing your treatment, eliminating vitamins, aspirin, alcohol and other blood thinners, will result in less bruising and bleeding at the site of the injection. For the best results, avoid sun exposure and tanning beds.

How Much Does Dysport® Cost?

The cost of treatments varies from patient to patient, depending on how many units are used to treat the forehead and eyebrows, as well as the number of injection sites. Although health insurance does not cover the cost of neuromodulators like Dysport® and BOTOX®, we accept CareCredit®, cash, checks, and credit cards, and offer other financing options.

Can I Combine a Dysport® Injection with Other Injections?

You can combine treatments to address multiple aging concerns at once and provide more comprehensive results. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we offer many different types of treatments, including Dysport®, BOTOX®, and dermal fillers like JUVEDERM® and Restylane®.

However, the decision to combine injections will depend on your individual needs and goals. During your consultation with our patient counselor, we will assess your specific situation and recommend the most suitable treatment plan for you.
