Plastic surgeon Dr. Janet Woodyard offers Baltimore, MD patients numerous nonsurgical options for rejuvenated skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that works similar to BOTOX® to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by reiterated facial movements and expressions (like frowning, laughing, and smiling) that over several decades make the facial muscles tight. This causes the overlying skin to have a grooved line that is visible even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specially created to correct one of the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. Dysport temporarily blocks signals to the muscle so the line is smoother, but with natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen.

Dysport is injected via a fine needle to specific areas on the face. Prior to the injection, these areas are marked and a numbing anesthetic is applied. The amount of medicine injected varies by the patient depending on their aesthetic goals. Some individuals will have deeper, broader wrinkles while others wish to target fines lines (which requires less product). Dysport is administered during an in-office appointment that typically lasts about 30 minutes.

What to Expect
There is no downtime after a Dysport injection. Some mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites, but the skin will return to a normal appearance a few hours after treatment. Patients are able to resume their normal activities during the same day as their treatment. Results will become apparent within a couple of days.
Dysport or BOTOX?
Dysport and BOTOX are safe and effective to treat facial wrinkles and both are widely available. A skilled practitioner can tell which medication may offer the best benefit. The results of a Dysport injection typically become visible faster than BOTOX, last a bit longer, and spread to a larger coverage area.
Dysport or Filler?
Patients seeking to rejuvenate their facial appearance may look into injectable fillers or injectable relaxers such as Dysport to attain results. Both these skin treatments work to decrease facial wrinkles but use varying approaches. Injectable fillers add volume to certain facial structures, which creates a smooth result on the surface. It is common today to combine products such as Dysport and BOTOX with an injectable filler. This has been labeled a “liquid facelift” and provides outstanding results for individuals who do not want surgery.
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3 – 4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
