Plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee offers Houston, TX patients several nonsurgical options for rejuvenated 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 frowning, smiling, and laughing) 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 created to correct the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. Dysport 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.

Dysport is a good choice if you want a nonsurgical option to improve mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Because dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by chronic use, they may become visible in younger patients and make you appear sad, tired, or mad. 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 Nuveau Plastic Surgery notice visible improvements in their appearance 1 – 3 days following their procedure that typically last for as long as four months.
Injections of Dysport are administered in one of our private treatment rooms following your consultation with Dr. Lee, 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, then a cold compress will be placed on the treated area to lessen bruising and swelling. Following your injections at Nuveau Plastic Surgery, you can perform regular activities but you should avoid taxing activities for at least one day.
What To Expect
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 are minimized for a softer, smoother appearance. Your results should remain for around 3 – 4 months and more injections may be done at Nuveau Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX to extend your results.
