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.
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.
"This review may be a little early as I just got my cast off my nose today...but I am over the moon. I don't know how Dr. Keyes does it, and I'll admit I was skeptical while the cast was on as the cast and tape can distort things. I was actually a nervous wreck. But when that cast came off today, it reduced me to happy tears. He did everything I wanted and more. My nose is now straight, and it looks amazing. Even swollen I love it! I can breathe through my left nostril for the first time and it feels so good. I seriously feel like a new person. I'm so excited to see how it progresses over the next year. Dr. Keyes was the only consultation I had, and for a second it crossed my mind, did I jump the gun on this? Do I need a second opinion? Something in my gut trusted him. And I'm so glad my gut was right. His reviews and his before and after photos on his website speak for themselves. I am so thankful to Dr. Keyes and Kimberly. They're so easy to reach and they care about you just as much before the surgery as they do after. They are wonderful. Couldn't recommend them more. I am so happy. Thank you Dr. Keyes and Kimberly. From the bottom of my heart!"- S.B. / Yelp / Nov 05, 2019
"So happy with rhinoplasty results - two weeks post op! - I'm only two weeks post op from my nose surgery so technically I should wait to write this review until the final result, but I can't wait. I am so happy with my results. Dr. Keyes is an expert rhinoplasty surgeon, and he did a remarkable job on me. I was classified as "a hard nose" because I already had a nice nose, but I was always self conscious because it was slightly crooked and pinched in the center which also gave me breathing issues. He knew exactly what I needed from the moment he saw my nose, and he delivered. My nose is so natural and beautiful now, I can't believe it's only going to get better. Hard to imagine! Not to mention my breathing is amazing. Feels like I have an invisible breathe right strip on. It's an incredible feeling.Kimberly, his partner is also lovely. Like all the other reviewers say, she is there every step of the way answering questions and concerns. Both of them couldn't be easier to reach. Kimberly is warm and friendly and makes you feel totally comfortable. All in all I feel lucky to have found them, and I am so thankful. Will report back with an update a couple months from now. Thank you Dr. Keyes and Kimberly!"- P. / RealSelf / Nov 11, 2019
"Dr. Keyes and Kimberley, his surgical assistant, are the best in the business. These days it is tough to find a surgeon especially because you can find a lot of flashy pictures on social media that might make you interested in visiting a surgeon, but when it comes down to it it's all about skill. Dr. Keyes has been president of the rhinoplasty society and speaks around the world on surgical techniques. Kimberley is SO kind and caring, you will certainly be in great hands with these two. When it comes down to picking a surgeon, it is key to find a surgeon that has the credentials, bedside manner, and experience and that is Dr. Keyes and Kimberley! I'm only 4 months post-op and I can't wait until my final results. This is the place to go for your next procedure, 100%. Wish I could give more than 5 stars!"- J.S. / Yelp / Oct 29, 2019
"Kimberely and Dr. Keyes are the best! - Prior to Dr. Keyes I had seen three different ENT’s; two scoped my nose, one wanted a CT scan and I had a couple of surgeries that were of no help.My primary care physician suggested I go see Dr. Keyes, because he was able to help one of her other patients.I was NOT thrilled on the idea to go see a "plastic surgeon".I called and talked to Kimberley, Dr. Keyes Director of Patient Services. She is absolutely AMAZING! She answered all of my many questions and I called more than once!I met with Dr. Keyes and told him about the issues with my nasal passages. He listened, asked a few questions and then examined my nose.After a little prodding, he said there were three items wrong with my nose. He described the details of the nose functions and then explained what needed to be done to mine.I was impressed. It made sense and I went through with the surgery.I wish I would have gone to him FIRST!THANK YOU Dr. Keys and Kimberley! You two are the best!"- N. / RealSelf / Oct 14, 2019
"3 months post-op and loving so far! - Dr. Keyes and Kimberley are literally the BEST of the best. I've been waiting to write my formal review (and will be doing so when I have more time to rave about them) but honestly I've been getting a ton of compliments and couldn't wait! They are the dream team! More formal review to come :)"- R. / RealSelf / Oct 13, 2019
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.
