Repetitive facial muscle movements cause many wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, forehead creases, and frown lines. In most individuals, these wrinkles appear on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. Dysport®, a non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment, can help minimize these early signs of aging. With four convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers Dysport® to men and women who live in and around North Florida. Dysport® is injected by our nurse practitioner.

What Is Dysport®?

Dysport® is an injectable treatment that, like Botox®, temporarily provides a dramatic improvement in skin firmness and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles.

Dysport® used on its own significantly diminishes fine lines and wrinkles on the upper one-third of the face. When combined with a dermal filler, a refreshed and natural rejuvenation may be achieved. Dysport® is injected directly into facial muscles in order to alter their activity, temporarily relaxing targeted muscles. This diminishes the appearance of fine lines, resulting in a softer and smoother appearance.

Dysport® vs. Botox®

Dysport® and Botox® work similarly, but there are some notable differences between them. Dysport® generally starts working faster than Botox® does. In our experience, most people see some effect within one day after treatment, while Botox® may take five to seven days to start working.

Dysport® and Botox® also differ insofar as dosages and pricing. While one unit dosage of Botox® may be used to treat a patient, it might take two to three times that unit dosage of Dysport® to achieve the same results. Nonetheless, over the long run, Dysport® and Botox® are comparable in value and price.

Additionally, Dysport® has a tendency to spread more than Botox® does, meaning that it’s technically possible for the solution to radiate out and affect areas beyond than the target area; however, our experience with this product ensures that we administer the treatment with supreme precision.

Why Choose Dysport®?

Dysport® has become popular for many reasons, the first of which is: it yields fabulous results! Dysport® is one of the best treatments you can have to refresh your appearance non-invasively. The treatment is effective in diminishing various types of wrinkles, including lip and neck wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead wrinkles and others. The Dysport® treatment is incredibly simple and quick, and there is no downtime required, you may return to your regular activities immediately upon leaving our office. Results are generally visible within a day after treatment and for most, there are little to no side effects.

Dysport® is recommended by doctors and nurse injectors all over the world, and it has a safe and successful track record. Dysport® was originally developed in 1991 as a treatment for muscle spasms and disorders, and has now gained popularity as a treatment for many conditions in over 75 countries.

The Dysport® Procedure

During your initial consultation, we can determine whether you would benefit from a Dysport® treatment. Once this is established, your treatment may begin at any time. We will analyze your face to determine the most effective injection sites, as well as the dosage of product needed to achieve the desired results. The product is injected directly into the face using a very fine needle. The procedure itself may take from five to 15 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. Most patients experience minimal to no discomfort during the procedure. Topical anesthetic and ice may be utilized to ensure total comfort.

Problems or complications after Dysport® treatments are extremely rare. In rare cases, temporary bruising may appear, but it naturally subsides within two to three days. Some individuals might experience mild soreness or discomfort at the injection site(s), and in even rarer cases, some report headaches and mild inflammation. If any pain is felt, it is usually minor and subsides within a day or two.

Are You A Candidate for Dysport®?

If you’re tired of seeing wrinkles around your eyes, brow, forehead, and nose, Dysport® may be ideal for you. Candidates for Dysport® treatments must be in overall good health. You should have reasonable expectations regarding the results provided by Dysport®. Dysport® is not recommended for people who are allergic to abobotulinumtoxin.

What Can I Expect After The Dysport® Procedure?

Although Dysport® treatment is quick and simple, it typically takes several days before results are fully visible, though initial improvement may be noticed within 24 hours. Some patients experience mild discomfort directly after the procedure, but it normally subsides within a day or so.

How Soon Can I Return To Work After Dysport®?

Since Dysport® requires no recovery time, you can return to your regular activities immediately after the procedure. We recommend that you wait 24 hours after treatment before exercising.
