Plastic surgeon Dr. Phi P. Nguyen offers Houston, TX 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 ideal if you are looking for a nonsurgical option to improve moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by chronic use, they can become visible at any age and make you look sad, mad, or tired. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without giving you a "frozen" face. Since Dysport spreads to treat a cluster of wrinkles, it is also ideal for Crow's feet, the fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes. Most patients see visible improvements in their appearance a few days after their procedure that usually last up to 4 months.
Plan Your Procedure
Dysport injections are administered in one of our private treatment rooms after your consultation, taking about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually not needed since the injections are made with a fine gauge needle that causes little discomfort, but it can be requested. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and five carefully placed injections will be placed along the brows, followed by a cold compress applied to the forehead to lessen swelling and bruising. After your injections, you can resume regular activities but you should try to avoid taxing activity for at least one day.
What to Expect
After a Dysport treatment, you may see mild swelling and redness at and around the injection sites, but this generally will naturally disappear in a few days. You should sleep upright for at least one night and continue to use a cold compress as needed. Results are commonly seen within a few days as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles are minimized for a smoother, softer appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months and more treatments can be done to maintain your results.
