What is Dysport?
Our board-certified dermatologists offer Clear Lake patients several nonsurgical options for skin rejuvenation. One such option is Dysport, an injectable treatment that works like BOTOX® to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines on the face. Dynamic wrinkles form after years of repetitive facial expressions and movements (like frowning, smiling, and laughing) that eventually make the face muscles taut. This causes the overlying skin to form lines that appear even when your face is resting. Dysport is specifically created to treat the most frequent dynamic wrinkles, like the frown lines that show up as vertical lines between the eyebrows. Dysport temporarily prevents muscle movement so your dynamics wrinkles look not only smoother but also natural.

Candidates for Dysport
Dysport is ideal for those who want a nonsurgical option to improve mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines between their eyebrows. Because dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by repetitive muscle contractions, they can become visible in younger patients and make people look sad, tired, or mad. Dysport is a fast and effective treatment that smoothens dynamic wrinkles without causing a "frozen" face. Since Dysport's formula spreads out to treat a group of wrinkles, it is also ideal for Crow's feet, the fine wrinkles around the corners of the eyes. After their procedure, most patients at Clear Lake Dermatology see visible improvements within 1 – 3 days, and these results can last for as long as four months.
"I've been a patient of Dr. Joe's since 2016 and I am more than pleased with my experience at ClearLake Dermatology. I was introduced to Dysport and Juvaderm products as part of Dr. Joe's plan for age-preventative cosmetic treatments, and I definitely look more youthful, and I'm complimented all the time. He has also successfully treated me for perioral dermatitis in the past. Today there are cosmetic spas popping up all over town, many much more conveniently located to me- but I would never trust anyone else with my skin and face other than Dr. Joe. A visit to CLD is far worth the drive time and effort! His eye for human aesthetics is perfect, and he is just a great guy in general, as well as his kind and friendly staff."- F.D. / Google / Jul 08, 2019

"Love my Restylane and Dysport Injections from Dr. Joe! - Houston, TX - Since the holiday season is approaching, I decided to try Restylane injections for the first time under my eyes to reduce the hollow and sunken look that was not so appealing. I wanted to look refreshed and maintain a youthful appearance. I was nervous at first to try something new, but regret not trying it sooner after seeing the amazing results. The injections were not painful and there was minimal recovery time. I do believe that having an experienced and methodical injector is key. Again, I am kicking myself for not getting filler under my eyes years ago!"- L. / RealSelf / Mar 28, 2013
"Fighting Wrinkles - Wrinkles are helped with filler as well as Dysport and the combination works well. I am always pleased with the results. There are other treatments that I have had in the past that have been helpful as well. I recently had microneedling which seems to have worked well; it was much easier to tolerate than Ultherapy."- S. / RealSelf / Mar 28, 2018
How Dysport is performed
Following your consultation, we'll perform your Dysport injections in one of our private treatment rooms. This usually takes 15 – 30 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is usually unnecessary because the injections use a fine-gauge needle that causes little pain, but if needed, you can request a numbing cream. Next, we'll clean your skin and carefully place five injections of Dysport along your brow. To minimize bruising and swelling after your injections, we'll apply a cold compress.
What to Expect after Dysport
After your injections at Clear Lake Dermatology, you can resume your normal routine, but you should avoid strenuous activities for at least a day. You may notice slight swelling and redness near the injection sites, but these symptoms should subside within a few days. You should sleep propped up for at least one night and continue to use a cold compress as needed. Usually, you'll see results within 1 –3 days as your dynamic wrinkles start to smooth out and look softer. Your results should last for 3 – 4 months, and we can schedule follow-up appointments at Clear Lake Dermatology in League City or Webster, TX.
How much does Dysport cost?
The cost will depend on how much Dysport is needed for your treatment. In your initial consultation, your injector will create your personalized treatment plan so they can offer a cost estimate. Ask about our current specials at Clear Lake Dermatology and the different payment methods we take.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX®?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are safe and effective to improve dynamic wrinkles. The results of a Dysport injection typically develop faster compared to BOTOX. Dysport results also tend to last longer than other wrinkle relaxers, and it has a better spread. In your consult, your injector will help you understand whether Dysport or BOTOX is best for you.
Should I get Dysport or a dermal filler?
Many patients do not know the different uses for injectable wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers. A wrinkle relaxer corrects dynamic wrinkles, whereas a wrinkle filler treats static wrinkles. Dysport relaxes the muscles under the skin for a smoother appearance. Static wrinkles are from decreased skin elasticity, so a dermal filler plumps the skin to make it look even. During your consult, your injector will listen to your concerns and goals to help you decide whether a wrinkle relaxer, a wrinkle filler, or a mix of both will deliver your desired results.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
Clear Lake Dermatology performs several nonsurgical treatments, which can be added to complement the results of your Dysport injection. Depending on your concerns and wants, your custom treatment plan might include Dysport injections, a dermal filler for static lines, or lip and cheek augmentation, plus a laser skin treatment. We encourage you to be honest during your consultation so we can create a treatment plan that will deliver amazing results.
How often should I get Dysport injections?
The results of Dysport may be visible for up to four months. During your consultation, your injector will recommend how often you should return to our office in Webster, TX, to maintain your results. You may get treatments more often or wait until long after you see the results from your initial Dysport treatment.
