Overview

Dysport is an injectable treatment that helps to soften the frown lines and wrinkles in the upper face. Also known as, abobotulinum toxin A, Dysport is similar to BOTOX, but offers a few subtle differences for the patients at Dr. Paresi of InsdieLookMD in Chicago. Similar to BOTOX, Dysport blocks the actions of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter in the nervous system) and this causes the muscles under the skin relax. Once these muscles are relaxed, the dynamic wrinkles that are created by the frequent muscle contractions are diminished for a smoother appearance. Dr. Paresi uses both Dysport and BOTOX to give their patients the best results; often preferring BOTOX on the forehead and Dysport around the eyes. Dysport generally acts faster than BOTOX and diffuses further from the injection site, which offers a greater “spread” of the results.  

Administering Dysport

Dysport is injected via a fine needle to specific areas on the face. Prior to the injection, these areas are marked, and a numbing anesthetic is applied. The amount of medicine injected varies by patient depending on their aesthetic goals. Some individuals will have deeper, broader wrinkles while others wish to target fines lines (which requires less product). Dysport is administered during an in-office appointment that typically lasts about 30 minutes.

I recently had a breast reduction surgery with Dr. Paresi and I couldn't be happier with the results! Dr. Paresi was attentive, taking the time to listen to my questions and provide thorough answers. The recovery process was smooth, with minimal scarring and no drains. I highly recommend Dr. Paresi for anyone considering breast reduction surgery. Thank you, Dr. Paresi, for your expertise and excellent care!

Dr. Paresi is the best plastic surgeon in Chicago Illinois. He truly cares about his patients and their wellbeing; specially with Crisalex 3D system . You can see exactly what you will look like after surgery. It’s AMAZING! Don’t hesitate to come with him; I’m at a loss of words to express the skills of Dr. Paresi. He is the absolute BEST! As do his assistants since the moment you walk into his office. I wish I could give him 10 Stars. Maria Tenorio

I had two procedures done with Dr. Paresi earlier this year and I truly could not be happier. I had done extensive research and even went to another consultation with a different doctor before going to Dr.Paresi. The first place I went to for a consult had terrible customer service, acted as if they were doing me a favor, and were completely dismissive of all my questions and concerns. Dr. Paresi and his staff were a complete 180. From start to finish they took such amazing care of me. From answering every single question I had before and after surgery to taking so much accountability in ensuring I was set up for success for surgery and post surgery, they truly care about their patient's well-being. Their process is amazing and you really feel like you don't have anything to worry about because they are always a call or email away. Susanna, Carrie, and Nerina are all fantastic and will really do everything they can to make you feel so welcomed and reassured. My results are fantastic so far and I'm healing every day. I would recommend Dr.Paresi to everyone because you truly will have the best experience.

What to Expect

There is no downtime after a Dysport injection. Some mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites, but the skin will return to a normal appearance a few hours after treatment. Ice packs are often compressed to the site immediately after treatment to help calm the skin and reduce these after effects. Patients are able to resume their normal activities during the same day as their treatment. Results will become apparent within a couple of short days.

Expected Cost

The cost for a Dysport injection will vary depending on how many syringes of the medicine are needed during the time of treatment. The cost for one full syringe usually averages about $350; some patients may require multiple syringes during treatment to attain the desired results.

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 become visible faster than BOTOX, last a bit longer 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.

How Often for Treatment?

Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3-4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
