Plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe offers Dallas, TX patients several nonsurgical options for rejuvenating the skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that acts like BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by reiterated facial expressions and movements (like laughing, smiling, and frowning) that over several decades make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a grooved line that can be seen even when the face is resting. Dysport is specially used to correct the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. It temporarily blocks signals to the treated muscle so the line is smooth but with natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen.

"Dr. Dauwe and his staff are absolutely amazing! I loved everything about my experience from start to finish! His passion for caring for people and helping them achieve self confidence is unmatched! Him and his staff are very attentive and make sure that you’re comfortable and confident with decisions throughout the entire process and always there to answer all of your questions. You will not regret choosing Dr. Dauwe! Ive had Dysport through a different med spa in Houston and had a horrible experience with it - I felt like I had just had bruises all over my forehead for weeks so I was super nervous about going through with it again! I explained my previous experience to my nurse Tessa and she explained what could have potentially happened and recommended I try Botox as an alternative. It was EVERYTHING I wanted!! Didn’t hurt, and was perfectly even! Highly recommend her!! Can’t wait to be back!"- A.E. / Google / Jul 01, 2020
Ideal Candidates for Dysport
Dysport is a good choice if you want a nonsurgical option to improve mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines that appear between or above your eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by chronic use, they may become visible in younger patients and make you appear mad, tired, or sad. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without leaving a "frozen" appearance. Since Dysport's formula expands to reach a group of wrinkles, it's also great for Crow's feet, the small wrinkles in the corners of the eyes. Many patients at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery notice visible improvements in their appearance 1 – 3 days following their procedure that may remain for as long as 4 - 6 months.
Dysport Procedure Technique
Injections of Dysport are administered in one of our private treatment rooms following your consultation with Dr. Dauwe, lasting around 15 – 30 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is generally unnecessary because the Dysport is injected using a fine needle that creates little pain, but it may be applied if requested. The treatment area will be cleaned and five well-placed injections will be made across the eyebrows, followed with a cold compress to lessen bruising and swelling. Following your injections at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery, you can perform regular tasks, but you should avoid strenuous activities for at least one day.
What to Expect for Dysport
Following a Dysport session, you may see light redness and swelling at and around the injected area, but this generally will disappear within 1 – 3 days. You should sleep propped up for at least one night and may want to apply cold compresses if needed. Improvements are commonly noticeable in 1 –3 days as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a softer, smoother appearance. Your results should remain for around 3 – 4 months and more injections may be done at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery to extend your results.
Frequently Asked Questions about Dysport
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on the number of Dysport injections needed to attain your desired results. During your consult, Dr. Dauwe or a member of his 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 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 combine Dysport with their surgical facelift, or skin resurfacing treatment for even more dramatic results. Dr. Dauwe can discuss your cosmetic goals during your consult and let you know which procedures can be incorporated with Dysport.
How often for treatment?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3 – 4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
