Dysport cosmetic injections are one of the noninvasive cosmetic procedures offered by our plastic surgeons at Peer Group in northern New Jersey. In 2009, the FDA approved Dysport to treat frown lines caused by the action of muscles of the forehead between the eyes. Dysport is similar to BOTOX in that it relaxes the muscles, softening and eliminating frown and worry lines and Crow’s feet. The injections are virtually painless and patients have little to no down time. Treated wrinkles are noticeably smoother within 24-48 hours and the results typically last anywhere from 3-6 months.
Dysport is injected via a fine needle to specific areas on the face. Prior to the injection, these areas are marked, and a numbing anesthetic is applied. The amount of medicine injected varies by patient depending on their aesthetic goals. Some individuals will have deeper, broader wrinkles while others wish to target fines lines (which requires less product). Dysport is administered during an in-office appointment that typically lasts about 15 to 30 minutes.

What to Expect
There is no downtime after a Dysport injection. Some mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites, but the skin will return to a normal appearance a few hours after treatment. Ice packs are often compressed to the site immediately after treatment to help calm the skin and reduce these after effects. Patients are able to resume their normal activities during the same day as their treatment. Results will become apparent within 3-5 of days.
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.
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.
How Often for Treatment?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3-4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
