common patient questions

If you’re considering Dysport® injections to reduce the appearance of your deep facial lines, you no doubt have a lot of questions. Dr. Mobley and the Beauty Now team are your best sources of information, so scheduling a personal consultation will get you the expert answers you need. Today, we would like to share some of the most common questions our patients have about this cosmetic injectable treatment.

No. 1: How Does Dysport® Work?

Dysport® injections target specific muscles that are responsible for frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead furrows. Wrinkles and fine lines are caused by muscle contractions that occur hundreds of times each day. Injections temporarily prevent muscular contraction while leaving the rest of the facial muscles free to move naturally. After treatment, deep facial lines appear softer and less prominent.

No. 2: How Long Does Dysport® Last?

Dysport® injections generally take around 30 minutes to complete. In fact, many patients schedule this treatment during their lunch hour. You can expect to begin seeing results within three days, with maximum results being seen in around 14 days. A single treatment can last for up to four months.

No. 3: How is Dysport® Different from Xeomin® and Botox®?

Dysport®, Botox® and Xeomin® are all botulinum toxin type A injectables, and each improves the appearance of deep facial lines by blocking muscle activity. Facial plastic surgeons routinely use all three cosmetic treatments, but Dysport® is often preferred as it can provide faster results that last for up to a month longer than the other cosmetic injectables.

No. 4: How Much Does Dysport® Cost?

The cost varies depending upon the frequency of treatment as well as the amount of product used during each injectable session, but the price is similar to that for Botox® and Xeomin® injections. Rebates and treatment discounts may also available at Mobley MD Facial Plastic Surgery. Ask the Beauty Now team for information on current promotions.

No. 5: Is Dysport® Right for Me?

Dysport® injections have helped countless men and women achieve a natural, more youthful facial appearance. Anyone who wants to improve the look of deep facial lines may be a candidate for this cosmetic injectable.

However, no single cosmetic treatment is right for everyone, and results from Dysport® injections can vary among patients. To determine the best approach for your facial rejuvenation, you’ll need to consult with an experienced facial plastic surgeon.
