Ocean Plastic Surgery Center in Los Alamitos, CA offers patients several nonsurgical options for rejuvenating the skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that acts like BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the upper face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by reiterated facial expressions and movements (like laughing, smiling, and frowning) that, over several decades, make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a grooved line that can be seen even when the face is resting. 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 it has natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen. Hear more about making your face appear more youthful with Dysport injectable treatments at your consultation at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center.
Dysport is a good choice if you want a nonsurgical option to improve mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Because dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by chronic muscle use, they may become visible in younger patients, creating the appearance of anger, tiredness, or sadness. 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 Ocean Plastic Surgery Center notice visible improvements in their appearance 1 – 3 days following their procedure that may remain for as long as four months.

Injections of Dysport are administered in one of our private treatment rooms following your consultation, and the procedure lasts around 15 – 30 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is generally unnecessary because the 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 five well-placed injections will be made across the eyebrows, followed with a cold compress to lessen bruising and swelling. Following your injections at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center, you can perform regular tasks, but you should avoid taxing activities for at least one day.
What to Expect
Following a Dysport session, you may see light redness and swelling at and around the injected area, but this will generally 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 3 – 4 months, and more injections may be done at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center in Los Alamitos, CA to extend your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Dysport cost?
The number of Dysport injections you need to reach your desired appearance will determine how much it will cost. One of our experienced injectors will discuss this, as well as your estimated costs and payment options, at your consultation.
Should I use Dysport or BOTOX?
At your consultation, we will discuss which treatment would be best for you. BOTOX and Dysport are both effective and safe, though Dysport generally gives results a bit more quickly, lasts a little longer, and covers a larger treatment area.
Is Dysport better than a filler?
One can't be said to be better than the other in general because they work in different ways. In fact, they could be used at the same time for different types of wrinkles. This is sometimes referred to as a "liquid facelift." Treatments with Dysport or BOTOX work by relaxing the muscles that cause the wrinkles while fillers do not affect the muscles at all but simply add volume to the wrinkles, smoothing them out.
Can I get Dysport with other procedures?
Yes. Our patients combine Dysport or other injectables quite often with other procedures, including facelifts and skin resurfacing. One of our highly experienced injectors can let you know which procedures can be incorporated with Dysport during your consult.
How long does it last?
The duration of the results varies from person to person, but the average follow-up or touch-up appointment is scheduled 4 – 6 months after the initial session.
