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.
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.
"Iam in my mid 40's and a mother of one child. I have a very demanding and active job in the medical field. I see woman of all ages complain of the way they look and how their bodies have changed with age, pregnancies and yo- yo dieting. Well I'm one of those women!! Although having one pregnancy it definitely was enough to change my body. I was left with excessive loose skin. Later adding three laparoscopic surgeries, and years of weight loss and weight gain. My tummy became a train wreck!! After years of contemplating surgery I decided it was now time to get my body back. I choose Dr. Mizgala because of her outstanding reputation as a surgeon. I have seen some of her work and talked with patients about their experience and knew she was the Dr. of choice for me. Iam now three months post surgery and feeling wonderful!! I love my new tummy and belly button. I put on a bikini for the first time in over twenty years. My confidence level is higher than it has been in years. For anyone contemplating surgery dont put it off. For me it was a life changing experience."- S. / Google / Aug 07, 2019
"Very Happy with my New Chin! - I'd been wanting this procedure for awhile. The doctor and staff were lovely and it really didn't hurt. There was some lumpiness I had to adjust to as my body healed, but I wore the compression garment as much as possible and used a lot of arnica for bruising/swelling. I'm very happy with the results and so glad I did it."- J. / RealSelf / Dec 03, 2019
"Without a doubt the best doctor I’ve ever had. Dr. Mizgala is a magician who made my flabby stomach washboard flat, and made an ugly C-section scar disappear. She is an absolutely brilliant surgeon, and her sincere interest in and concern for her patients was clear throughout my time with her. All my questions and concerns were personally and fully answered in a way I could understand and that put me at ease. I would trust her to do any surgery or procedure without a doubt. There should be a 10 star rating available - she earned it."- J. / Google / Nov 27, 2019

"Super delighted with Dr Mitzgala! This is not my first rodeo and the gentle care and personalized attention I received from her and her staff went beyond what I expected. I received a call from the doctor herself the day after my procedure, which happened to be on a Saturday. She provided my family with a way to contact her or her staff and all of the tools they needed to be sure I was comfortable at home. I had Vaser Lipo of hips inner/ outer thigh with renuvion to help with some loose skin. My initial visit (and all)was very thorough, she was honest about results and what would be the best approach for me. Not to mention the results are phenomenal. I was able to return to work within a few days which she knew was important to me. My procedure was tailored to my needs and the staffs amazing service extended into my follow up care. 6 weeks out and I’ve had the best experience. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr Mitzgala and I would certainly chose her if needed in the future."- M.P. / Google / Nov 13, 2019
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.
