Featured Image

Dysport injections are a popular way to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and frown lines. It is often used in combination with other cosmetic treatments for more dramatic results. However, it is important to meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Phillip Dauwe, to ensure excellent and long-lasting outcomes.

Today, Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery explores the topic of Dysport and when to combine injections with other anti-aging treatments. We also discuss potential side effects and what to expect during a consultation. Call our Dallas, TX staff to make an appointment and learn more.

What are dynamic wrinkles, and how do they form?

Dynamic wrinkles are the result of repeated muscle movements over time. Common examples include frown lines and Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes. These creases can make you appear angry, tired, or stressed—even when you’re not. Dysport is a well-known wrinkle relaxer that smoothes away dynamic lines that make you feel self-conscious.

How is Dysport administered?

Dr. Dauwe performs Dysport injections in a private treatment room after a skin assessment. A numbing cream can be applied for additional comfort, although many people report the process to be relatively painless. Dysport is administered using a fine needle in as little as 15 – 30 minutes. Injections may be placed across the eyebrows or other areas as needed.

Can you combine Dysport with other injections?

Dysport can be used in conjunction with other wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX®, to address multiple concerns at once. Patients at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery may also combine Dysport with dermal fillers for more comprehensive outcomes. Fillers work by adding volume beneath the skin to diminish common signs of aging.

Dermal fillers can address the following:

  • Sunken cheeks: Volume loss in the mid-face can cause your cheeks to appear flat or sunken in.

  • Hollow areas under the eyes: This issue can make you appear tired even when you’re well-rested.

  • Lines around the mouth: Vertical lines above the lip, smoker's lines, and marionette lines can be softened with fillers.

  • Lip enhancement: Thin lips can be augmented with dermal fillers for a plumper appearance.

Can you combine Dysport with other cosmetic treatments?

It depends on your specific goals and aesthetic concerns. Dysport works well with skin resurfacing treatments to improve the overall tone and texture of your skin. Wrinkle relaxers can also be combined with a surgical facelift or neck lift if you have more significant signs of aging.

What happens during a Dysport consultation?

All Dysport patients in Dallas should meet with an experienced plastic surgeon before undergoing any procedure. A consultation allows Dr. Dauwe to review your medical history and determine which cosmetic treatments are safe and appropriate for your goals. We also assess your skin tone, elasticity, and wrinkle depth to get a better understanding of your needs.

Some patients are interested in Dysport injections for dynamic wrinkles, while others want surgical options for a more comprehensive transformation. Our team only recommends options that provide the best results.
