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.
"I had a breast reduction from Dr. Woodyard over 23 years ago and I must say I am still SO VERY HAPPY. I have watched some of these plastic surgery shows and recently I saw a show dedicated to women that had had complication from a reduction (the horror). I never thought one could have problems with a reduction but wow can you....I had the best results and experience with Dr. Woodyard and never had any complications and to this day my GIRLS are just as perking and looking great as ever. I remember how professional, caring and informative she was. I trusted her completed and I'm so glad she was worth the trust, as I was young and did not ask many questions. I am grateful now and was grateful then..."- A.A. / Google / Mar 21, 2019

"My sister had found Dr. Woodyard online after I had experienced a tragic fall this past winter. I was very trepidatious about the procedure to be done on my nose, but rest assured she put my woes at ease. Nervous and anxious each visit, I was always comforted by the warmth of her office, kindness of her staff, and her impeccable way of making me feel like I was in good hands. Each visit was so informative it was like a college course. I loved her calm and caring demeanour that helped me go through with this procedure and I never felt alone. Her attention to detail is meticulous and her skills are artistic. A true family atmosphere from the get go. She even advocated to have my procedure covered by insurance. She also has an amazing Esthetician, Stacey Edgar who is such a wealth of knowledge and even took time out of her day to chat with me. Don't go anywhere else. My experience was amazing and I think I made some friends!"- L.E. / Google / Oct 09, 2019

I use four basic items instead of a medicine cabinet filled with goop and concoctions that don’t deliver. I save time and money, and my skin glows."- K.H. / Google / Apr 19, 2019
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.
