Dysport is a product offered by Dallas cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Daniel Beck that helps reduce frown lines and wrinkles in the upper face. It is a drug similar to BOTOX that relaxes the underlying facial muscles to stop them from contracting, an activity that naturally forms wrinkles on the face. It is used in cosmetic treatments to smoothen out the wrinkles on the upper third section of the face, as well as diminish the appearance of crow’s feet, thin lips or neck wrinkles. It is injected in tiny doses with precision so it does not affect unintended muscles. The results compared to BOTOX injections are quicker as the diffusion is much faster. There are preferences when it comes to the various muscle relaxers that are on the market today. Each has its own set of benefits that can be discussed in detail during the initial consultation.

"Love my Cheeks and Youthful Glow! - Dallas, TX - Dr. Beck is highly skilled in the field of injectables. He took an extended amount of time with me and his technique was virtually painless. I did have some bruising and swelling, but I bruise with Botox, so that is expected and normal for my face. He is knowledgeable and patient and works with you to achieve your desired outcome in the most natural state. I was searching for a highly skilled doctor who would deliver outstanding results and I am so happy that I found Dr. Beck. - - It has been about 3 weeks since I had injections with Dr. Beck. His technique is so skilled and deliberate that it didn't really hurt and the outcome is spectacular. I did have some bruising after, but that is to be expected with an injection that goes down to the bone. After the bruising and swelling went away, I now have beautiful cheeks that are in the right spot, as well as the marionette lines are lessened and there is no hollowing of my jowls. It is the most perfect outcome from a relatively simple procedure. My husband keeps saying "your face looks so young", which is exactly what I wanted. As well, all of my friends think I look refreshed but not injected. I am truly thrilled with the results!! I even go out with out makeup now, as my skin is firm and fresh, and I no longer need to apply makeup every day. Love the results."- C. / RealSelf / May 22, 2016

As Dysport affects nerve and muscular function, injection sites must be marked for the purpose of accuracy. This is to avoid any unintended muscle to receive a dose. A tiny needle is used and the product is injected into specific spots on the face. Normally, topical anesthetic is applied to help with any discomfort during treatment. The medicine can target fine lines or the deeper creases by means of adjusting the amount of medication. A typical session can last up to 30 minutes. Depending on how severe the skin condition is, multiple treatments may be recommended.
What To Expect
One advantage to Dysport is that the results are visible within 2-3 days. Similar to any injection, mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites, but cold ice packs are applied immediately after the injection to help with this. After treatment, the patient will be able to go back to a normal routine without any downtime, but should refrain from any strenuous exercise for about 24 hours. Patients who have this treatment find results satisfying as the skin will appear softer and smoother.
A full syringe cost of Dysport averages about $350. Sometimes, a patient may only need a single syringe while others may need several. This will affect the overall cost. The number of syringes used will be determined at the time of the consultation. Factors to consider include how severe the facial wrinkles are and how many areas on the face are being treated. Patients should also keep in mind that Dysport lasts, on average, about 4-6 months. Those who love their results may return for additional treatments at the appropriate time.

Dysport of Fillers?
Dysport, like BOTOX, is a safe alternative to correct facial wrinkles. Both of these drugs are known as muscle (or wrinkle) relaxers. Injectable fillers create a similar result, but the function behind the medicine is different. A filler works to add volume under the skin to improve facial fullness in areas where volume has been lost. This results in a smoother, softer surface. Many times, muscle relaxers are combined with an injectable filler to create maximum results.
Dysport or BOTOX?
Dysport and BOTOX are very similar to each other, both relax the underlying muscles to give the skin an appearance that is smoother. A couple of key differences are that Dysport diffuses faster than BOTOX and so the results become more evident sooner. Dysport has also been shown to work better in some areas of the face than BOTOX (for example, the crow’s feet). This varies by patient.
The results following a Dysport injection will last about 4-6 months. It is common for patients to return every quarter for follow-up treatment.
