Frequently Asked Questions About Dysport®

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a household name. As for the equally effective wrinkle-relaxing treatment called Dysport®? It’s not so well known.

Dysport® received FDA approval for cosmetic use seven years after its popular predecessor. Since then, it has become a favorite among those looking for a different option to smooth lines and relax wrinkles. To help demystify the treatment, here are answers to some frequently asked questions about Dysport®.

How Does Dysport® Work?

Specific muscles of the face are injected with Dysport® during treatment. Dysport® works to limit muscle movement after the injection has taken full effect.

This limitation softens overlying fine lines and wrinkles. It also gives a smoother and more restful appearance to the face.

What Do Dysport® Injections Treat?

Dr. Sean Weiss uses Dysport® to address many different conditions here at our Metairie practice. Specifically, Dysport® can treat wrinkles and fine lines created by repetitive muscle movements. Repetitive muscle movements cause furrows in the skin that deepen over time.

Dysport® is commonly used to combat:

  • Glabella “11” lines between the eyes
  • Horizontal creases on the forehead
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Smoker lines around the lips
  • Banding lines in the neck
  • A gummy smile

How Long Do Dysport® Injections Last?

The average patient will see the effects of Dysport® last from 3 to 4 months after their injection. Some patients will experience longer-lasting results.

You can return for regular treatments to maintain your rejuvenated look. Dr. Weiss is committed to helping patients with their long-term aesthetic needs.

Is Dysport® As Good As BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic are both considered safe and effective treatments to improve wrinkles. They differ slightly in the length of time needed to take effect and in dosage.

A clinical study by Galderma found that 97% of Dysport® users thought their results looked natural and more than 95% of users felt confident, attractive, and happy after treatment.

Do Dysport® Injections Hurt?

Dysport® injections are extremely well-tolerated. Dr. Weiss uses the smallest needle possible for these injections. If you are concerned about discomfort, a numbing cream may be available.

How Much Does Dysport® Cost in New Orleans?

More experienced injectors will usually have a higher price than less experienced ones. But overall, there is not a big difference in cost between the highest-priced and lowest-priced cost of Dysport®.

Our staff will be able to give a price estimate for Dysport® in New Orleans over the phone if requested. Keep in mind that cost should be secondary to the skill and experience of your Dysport® provider.
