Dysport Frequently Asked Questions
Renowned plastic surgeons Dr. Schmid and Dr. Mooty are pleased to offer an effective array of nonsurgical skin rejuvenation solutions to men and women in the Lubbock and Midland, TX area. One such option is an injectable wrinkle treatment known as Dysport that works similarly to BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic lines and wrinkles throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are created by repetitive facial movements and expressions (such as laughing, smiling, and frowning) that eventually make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the overlying skin to feature a noticeable grooved line that is visible, even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is uniquely formulated to target one of the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. It temporarily relaxes the underlying facial muscles so the skin is smooth but leaves behind natural-looking results that do not cause the look of a "frozen" face.

Dysport injections are performed in one of our state-of-the-art treatment rooms and only take around 15 – 30 minutes to administer. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is generally unnecessary since Dysport is injected in a way that creates minimal discomfort; however, the area can be numbed if requested. The treatment sites will be cleaned and five carefully placed injections will be administered along the brow line, followed by a cold compress to lessen bruising and swelling. After your procedure at Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute, you can resume normal tasks, but you should try to avoid taxing activities for at least one day.
What to Expect with Dysport®
After a Dysport session, you may notice minor swelling and redness near the injection site. These common symptoms can be managed with cold compresses and should disappear in a few days. Our team will discuss any post-treatment recommendations with you and may suggest that you sleep upright for the first night. Cosmetic improvements are usually apparent in about 1 – 3 days following your treatment as the visibility of forehead lines is decreased for a softer, smoother appearance. While Dysport results can last for around 3 – 4 months, you may wish to schedule additional treatment sessions at Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute to maintain your results.

How much does Dysport cost?
Your treatment cost will depend on the number of Dysport injections required to achieve your goals. During your consultation, our team will create your personalized treatment plan and provide you with a cost estimate. Please feel free to inquire about any treatment specials we may be offering at Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute and the payment methods we accept.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are injectable solutions that treat dynamic facial wrinkles. The results of Dysport injections often occur at a faster rate than BOTOX. Dysport results also tend to last longer and carry a better spread when compared with other wrinkle relaxers. During your consultation, our team can help you determine if Dysport or BOTOX is better for your needs and goals.
Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
There is a significant difference between wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport, and dermal fillers. Simply put, a wrinkle relaxer targets dynamic wrinkles, whereas a wrinkle filler addresses static lines. Dynamic wrinkles are the result of repetitive motions, for example, laughing, smiling, frowning, and all of your other facial expressions. Dysport relaxes the muscle under the skin to smooth the dynamic wrinkle. Static lines are caused by a lack of elasticity in the skin. A wrinkle filler plumps these areas to generate a more even appearance. During your consultation, our team will talk with you about your concerns and goals to help you decide if Dysport, a dermal filler, or a mix of both is ideal for achieving your desired results.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute performs several nonsurgical treatments that can be used to complement your Dysport results. Depending on your needs and goals, your personalized plan might include Dysport for dynamic wrinkles, an injectable filler for static wrinkles or volume in your lips and cheeks, plus a skin treatment. We encourage you to be open and honest during your consultation visit so we can develop a treatment plan that delivers amazing results.
How often should I receive Dysport injections?
The results of Dysport can last up to four months. At your initial visit, our team will recommend how often you should schedule treatment sessions to maintain your results. You may schedule injections sooner or wait longer once you know the effect Dysport has on your wrinkles.
