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
"Dr. Woodyard, I sincerely would like to thank you such a kind and patient person and doctor that you are. You make sure that things are understood by the patient and explained thoroughly. Thank you for not being one of many "Stuffy" doctors that we have in healthcare. I would also like to inform you of the professional, very patient and friendly staff. I call the office five times in one day and the hospitality is always the same. They are the poster children of "Customer friendly". I really appreciate you and excited to have experienced you are my doctor."- L / Office Visit / Nov 14, 2017
"Oh, my, I couldn't wait to leave my review for Master Aesthetician, Stacey Edgar; she's a staple to the practice of Janet P. Woodyard Plastic Surgery, where she brings year's of hands on medical aesthetics experience + a precise eye for beauty. Stacey performed the winning combination therapy of DERMAPLANE Pro + VI PEEL on me, and my results were out-of-this-world. No downtime; the procedure was just what my congested skin needed for the ultimate GLOW. -- Wendy (APPROVED)"- W.P. / Google / Jan 14, 2021

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.
