About Dysport

We all experience facial wrinkles as we get older. Happily, we can do something about them with the cosmetic injectable Dysport. With Dysport injections, like BOTOX, it will ease these fine lines and prevent new ones from forming. Our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Geoffrey Keyes, offers Los Angeles, CA women and men several nonsurgical options for rejuvenating the skin.

Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that acts like BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are formed by recurrent facial expressions and movements (like frowning, smiling, and laughing) that over time make the muscles of the face tighten. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a furrowed line that can be seen even when your face is resting. Dysport is uniquely designed to address the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the frown lines that show up as vertical lines between the eyebrows. It temporarily softens the treated muscle so the dynamic wrinkle is smooth, but with natural-looking results that don't give you a "frozen" face. Hear more about Dysport wrinkle relaxer treatments at Geoffrey R. Keyes, M.D., F.A.C.S. that make your face appear refreshed.

Ideal Candidates

Dysport is a wonderful choice if you want a nonsurgical procedure to address mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Because dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by frequent use, they may become visible in younger patients. These unfortunate lines can make you appear sad, tired, or mad. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that releases the muscles in 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 Geoffrey R. Keyes, M.D., F.A.C.S. notice a visible improvement in their dynamic wrinkles 1 – 3 days following their injections that typically remain for as long as four months.

Procedure Technique

Injections of Dysport are performed in one of our procedure rooms following your consultation with Dr. Keyes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is generally unnecessary because the Dysport is injected using a fine needle that creates very little pain, but it may be applied if requested. The treatment area will be cleaned and several well-placed Dysport injections will be made across the eyebrows, followed with a cold compress to limit bruising and swelling. Following your injections at Geoffrey R. Keyes, M.D., F.A.C.S., you may perform daily tasks, but you should avoid taxing activities for at least a day.

What to Expect

Following a Dysport session, you may notice light redness and swelling near the injected area, but this typically will resolve within 1 – 3 days. You should sleep propped up for the first night and may want to apply cold compresses if needed. Improvements are often noticeable in 1 – 3 days as the appearance of your lines is decreased for softer, smoother skin. Your results should remain for around 3 – 4 months and touch-up injections may be scheduled to extend your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Dysport cost?
Your cost is based on how much Dysport is used to achieve your goals. In your consultation, your injector will develop your personalized treatment plan so they can estimate your cost. Ask if we have any specials on Dysport at Geoffrey R. Keyes, M.D., F.A.C.S. and which methods of payment we take.

What is the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
One difference between these products is the time it takes for facial lines and wrinkles to fade away. A BOTOX treatment will take around one week to ten days to manifest its full results. A Dysport treatment, on the other hand, works its magic in just three to four days, giving the patient clear, smooth, youthful skin.

Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Many patients do not understand the different uses for wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers. A wrinkle relaxer corrects dynamic wrinkles whereas a dermal filler addresses volume loss. Dynamic wrinkles are the result of repetitive motions, such as frowning, laughing, smiling, and other expressions. Dysport relaxes the creased muscle under the skin to smooth the wrinkle. Static lines are the result of low skin elasticity, so the injection fills or plumps the area to make it look smooth. In your consultation, Dr. Keyes will ask about your goals to help you choose a product that will deliver your desired outcome.

Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
At Geoffrey R. Keyes, M.D., F.A.C.S., we provide several cosmetic treatments, which may be added to enhance your Dysport results. Based on your concerns and wants, your personalized plan might include Dysport, plus an injectable filler, or a skin treatment. We encourage you to be honest during your consult so we can develop a plan that delivers amazing results.

How often should I get Dysport injections?
Your Dysport results may be visible for 3 – 4 months. In your initial consultation, your injector will recommend how often you should schedule appointments at our office in Los Angeles, CA to sustain your results. You might want to get treatments more often or further apart once you see how long your initial results last.
