What is Dysport?
Board-certified physician Dr. Tricia Shimer offers Dallas, TX patients several nonsurgical procedures for rejuvenating the skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that works, like BOTOX®, to soften and reduce dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are formed by reiterated facial expressions and movements (like smiling, laughing, and frowning) that eventually make the facial muscles tight. This causes the overlying skin to form a grooved line that can be seen, even when your face is resting. Dysport is specially designed to correct the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows. It temporarily softens the treated muscle so the skin is smoother but with natural-looking results that don't "freeze" your face.

Who is an Ideal Candidate?
Dysport is a great option for men or women interested in a nonsurgical procedure to improve moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by repetitive use, they may develop in younger patients and make you appear angry or sad. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that corrects dynamic wrinkles without giving you a "frozen" appearance. Since Dysport's formula spreads to treat a cluster of wrinkles, it is also great for Crow's feet, the fine lines in the corners of the eyes. Most patients at Evolve Med Spa notice visible improvements in their appearance 1 – 3 days after their procedure. Results may last up to four months.
How is the procedure performed?
Dysport injections are administered in one of our confidential procedure rooms following a 15 – 30-minute consultation with Dr. Shimer. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually not needed since the Dysport is injected with a fine needle that causes very little pain. If you are nervous or anxious about the injection, please just let us know and we will gladly accommodate. The treatment area will be thoroughly cleaned and approximately five well-placed Dysport injections will be administered along the brow, followed by a cold compress to limit swelling and bruising. Following your treatment at Evolve Med Spa, you can perform daily tasks, but you should avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours.
What should I Expect after my treatment?
Following your Dysport session, you may have mild swelling and redness around the injected area. This is to be expected and will dissipate in 1 – 3 days. Your injector may recommend that you sleep propped up for the first night and may ask you to apply a cold compress as needed. Improvements are commonly noticeable within 1 – 3 days as the severity of your frown lines are minimized for a softer, smoother appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months. Additional injections may be scheduled at Evolve Med Spa in Dallas, TX to maintain your results.
What should you not do after Dysport?
Following your treatment, please do not rub or massage the treatment area for four hours. Additionally, you should avoid getting a facial or using a sauna for the same amount of time. Both of these activities could increase your risk for bruising.
Can Dysport lift your eyebrows?
Offering several benefits, Dysport can also help raise the eyebrows, which helps slim the face and reduces signs of aging.
How can you tell if Dysport is working?
Within the first 48 hours, you can start to see results. However, optimal results occur around two weeks after the treatment.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Dysport and BOTOX are both injections that treat dynamic facial wrinkles. Results from Dysport typically develop faster compared to BOTOX. Dysport also tends to last longer than other wrinkle relaxers and it is better for larger areas. In your first appointment, your injector will help you decide if Dysport or another wrinkle relaxer is ideal for you.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
At Evolve Med Spa, we offer a number of nonsurgical treatments that may be used to complement the results of your Dysport injection. Depending on your areas of concern and goals, your custom plan may include Dysport injections, a filler for static lines or volume in your cheeks and lips, plus a laser skin treatment. We encourage you to be honest during your consultation so we can create a plan that delivers an outcome you're thrilled with.
