About Dysport

The board-certified plastic surgeons at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA offers patients several nonsurgical options for rejuvenated skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that acts like BOTOX® to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by reiterated facial expressions and movements (such as laughing, smiling, and frowning) that recruit the skin into wrinkles as the muscles contract. After decades of moving the same muscles and creating the same dynamic wrinkles, the wrinkles can begin to stay in place and then become 'static' lines.

Dysport is specially created to correct the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. It temporarily blocks signals to the treated muscle so the line is smooth, but with natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen.

Ideal Candidates

Dysport is a good choice if you want a nonsurgical option to improve mild or moderate glabellar (frown) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Because dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by chronic use, they may become visible in younger patients and make you appear mad, tired, or sad. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without leaving a "frozen" appearance. Since Dysport's formula expands to reach a group of wrinkles, it's also great for Crow's feet, the small wrinkles in the corners of the eyes. Many patients at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery notice visible improvements in their appearance 1 – 3 days following their procedure that may remain for as long as four months.

Procedure Technique

Injections of Dysport are administered in one of our private treatment rooms following your consultation. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is generally unnecessary because Dysport is injected using a fine needle that creates little pain, but it may be applied if requested. The treatment area will be cleaned and multiple well-placed injections will be made across the eyebrows, followed with a cold, gentle compress to lessen bruising and swelling. Following your injections, you can perform regular tasks but you should avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours.

What to Expect

Following a Dysport session, you may see light redness and swelling at and around the injected area, but this generally will disappear within 1 – 3 days. You should sleep propped up for at least one night and may want to apply cold compresses if needed. Improvements are commonly noticeable in 1 –3 days as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a softer, smoother appearance. Your results should remain for around 3 – 4 months and more injections may be done at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA to extend your results.
