Orlando plastic surgeon Dr. Raj Sawh-Martinez offers area women and men several nonsurgical procedures 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, laughing, and smiling) that over time, make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a furrowed line that can be seen even when the 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 injectable wrinkle relaxers at Craniofacial & Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Orlando, FL to make your face appear refreshed.
Dysport is a good choice if you are in search of 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 and make you appear sad, mad, or tired. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that corrects dynamic wrinkles without leaving the patient with 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 Craniofacial & Aesthetic Plastic Surgery notice a visible improvement in their dynamic wrinkles 1 – 3 days following their injections that usually remain for as long as four months.

Injections of Dysport are completed in one of our state-of-the-art procedure rooms following your consultative appointment with Dr. Sawh-Martinez. The entire procedure only 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 very little pain (but it can be used if requested). The treatment area will be cleaned and five well-placed Dysport injections will be made across the eyebrows, followed with a cold compress to limit bruising and swelling. Following your procedure, you may perform daily tasks but should avoid taxing, exertive 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 a softer, smoother appearance. Your results should remain for around 3 – 4 months and touch-up injections may be scheduled at Craniofacial & Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Orlando, FL to extend your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on the number of Dysport injections needed to obtain your desired results. During your consult, Dr. Sawh-Martinez can discuss your estimated costs and go over all your payment options.
Dysport or BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are safe and effective to treat facial wrinkles and both are widely available. A skilled practitioner can tell which medication may offer the best benefit. The results of a Dysport injection typically becomes visible faster than BOTOX, lasts a bit longer, and spreads to a larger coverage area.
Dysport or filler?
Patients seeking to rejuvenate their facial appearance may look into injectable fillers, as well as products, such as Dysport, to attain results. Both skin treatments work to decrease facial wrinkles but use varying approaches. Injectable fillers add volume to certain facial structures, which creates a smooth result on the surface. It is common today to combine products, such as Dysport and BOTOX, with an injectable filler. This has been labeled a “liquid facelift” and provides outstanding results for individuals who do not want surgery.
Can it be combined with other treatments?
Yes. Many patients elect to combine Dysport with their surgical facelift, or skin resurfacing treatment for even more dramatic results. Dr. Sawh-Martinez can discuss your cosmetic goals during your consult and let you know which procedures can be incorporated with Dysport.
How often for treatment?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3 – 4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
