dysportWHAT IS DYSPORT?

Dysport is a prescription neurotoxin that was approved for use in America in 2009, with a structure and function comparable to that of Botox. It can be injected into the muscles of the face in order to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines and dynamic facial wrinkles, which are caused by factors such as: the repetitive contraction of the facial muscles, the natural aging process, genetics, smoking, and sun exposure.

Botox and Dysport injections address and treat the issue of dynamic wrinkle formation in a very similar manner, by blocking the nerve impulses within the targeted muscle, thereby inhibiting the contraction of the adjacent facial muscles and yielding smoother, youthfully rejuvenated skin. Dysport injections take only 20 minutes to perform and safely reduce wrinkles by 80%, giving patients a more youthful, refreshed, facial appearance without requiring any post-treatment downtime.

Although Dysport injections have become increasingly popular in America, and can be administered by a wide variety of practitioners, it is imperative to have your Dysport injections administered by a trained physician who specializes in this field because improper administration of Dysport can lead to shiny foreheads, visible ripples, and an unnatural “frozen” look. Dr.  Jason A. Shapiro, M.D. makes it a priority to stay up to date with the latest developments in the field of non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures in order to offer his patients the most effective treatments with minimal side effects and long-lasting results. As the Medical Director at Tribeca Medaesthetics, located in beautiful Miami Beach, Florida, Dr. Shapiro and his team of professionally trained medical aestheticians have helped many patients reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and revitalize the condition of their skin with Dysport injections.

DYSPORT VS. BOTOX

Special Internet Pricing
Although Dysport and Botox are made by different companies, they serve the same purpose, are both botulinum toxin type A proteins, offer results that last the same amount of time (3-7 months), and have the same basic structure. Some plastic surgeons have described the comparison of Botox vs. Dysport as a “Coke vs. Pepsi” choice, meaning that the two are nearly identical, but some patients and/or practitioners may subjectively prefer one over the other. There are, however, a few differences between the two wrinkle-reducing injectables:

  • Dysport begins to work faster than Botox—Dysport results become apparent within 1-2 days of treatment, while Botox results generally are not visible until 5-7 days after treatment.
  • Botox allows for greater precision during injections, making it a better choice for small treatment areas, such as the “11’s” between the eyebrows.
  • Dysport may be a better option for patients who have received Botox injections over an extended period of time and have become somewhat resistant to the treatment.
  • Dysport diffuses over a wider area than Botox, making it a good choice for broad treatment zones, such as the forehead and underarms

DYSPORT BENEFITS

Dysport injections can be performed to address and correct a number of problematic cosmetic issues, including, but not limited to:

  • Crow’s feet (fine lines around the eyes)
  • Frown lines
  • Eyebrow asymmetry
  • Sagging or creasing of the forehead/brow area
  • Drooping around the corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines
  • Upper and lower lip creases
  • Gummy smile
  • Excessive cleft chin or “peach pit” chin
  • Facial scars
  • Horizontal and vertical neck creases
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Wrinkling on the décolleté (chest)

In addition to reducing the appearance of the aforementioned aesthetic issues, Dysport injections also offer the benefit of slowing down the aging process by preventing patients from making the facial expressions responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles.


DYSPORT PROCEDURE DETAILS

Your Dysport treatment will be performed in our office and typically takes no longer than 20 minutes, after which you can resume your normal daily activities. The visible results of your Dysport injections will peak approximately 1-2 days after the injections are performed, and the wrinkle-reducing effects generally last 3-7 months, although this time frame varies among individuals and can be extended with periodic maintenance injections. Complementary cosmetic skin treatments (ie. chemical peels, microdermabrasion and dermal fillers) can be performed in conjunction with Dysport injections to amplify and maximize your skin rejuvenating results.
