About Dysport

Plastic surgeon Dr. Cynthia Mizgala offers Metairie, LA patients numerous nonsurgical options for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that works similarly to BOTOX to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by facial movements and expressions (like frowning, smiling, and laughing) that over several decades etch lines that are not appreciated. Dysport is specially created to correct one of the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines (also known as the number 11 lines). It temporarily blocks signals to the muscle so the line is smoother but with natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen. Learn more about Dysport wrinkle relaxer treatments at A Woman Plastic Surgeon to help you look more youthful, yet very natural.

Ideal Candidates

Dysport is FDA approved as an injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabella lines) in adults less than 65 years of age. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by chronic use, they can develop at any age and make you look sad, tired, or mad. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without giving you a "frozen" face. Since Dysport spreads to treat a cluster of wrinkles, it is also ideal for Crow's feet, the fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes. Most patients at A Woman Plastic Surgeon see visible improvements in their appearance a few days after their procedure that typically last up to four months.

Procedure Technique

Dysport injections are administered in one of our private treatment rooms after your consultation with Dr. Mizgala, taking about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for added comfort. The injection pattern will be customized by Dr. Mizgala. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and Dr. Mizgala will inject Dysport in these precise areas. There is usually minimal swelling or bruising. Many patients elect to combine Dysport injections with filler injections for a complete nonsurgical rejuvenation.

What to Expect

After a Dysport treatment, you may see mild swelling and redness at and around the injection sites, but this generally will disappear in a few hours. Results are commonly seen within a few days as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a smoother, softer appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months and more treatments can be scheduled at A Woman Plastic Surgeon in Metairie, LA to maintain your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?
The cost depends on the number of Dysport injections needed to attain your desired results. During your consult, Dr. Mizgala or a member of her team can discuss your estimated costs and go over all your payment options.

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. The results of a Dysport injection typically becomes visible faster than BOTOX, lasts a bit longer, and spreads to a larger coverage area.

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.

Can it be combined with other treatments?
Yes. Many patients elect to add Dysport to their regular maintenance routine every 4 – 6 months. Dysport can also add the finishing touches after a surgical facelift or skin resurfacing treatment. Dr. Mizgala can discuss your cosmetic goals during your consultation and let you know which procedures can be combined with Dysport to achieve your best result.

How often for treatment?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3 – 4 months after treatment, though individual treatment plans vary.
