Our experienced team of medical injectors proudly offer our Philadelphia, PA clients several nonsurgical options for rejuvenating the skin, including wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers. One of these is Dysport, an injectable wrinkle relaxer 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 smiling, laughing, and frowning) that when repeated 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 was specifically developed to correct the most frequently occurring dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows, also known as frown lines. This formula temporarily blocks signals to the treated muscle so the line is smooth and produces natural-looking results that don't make your face appear frozen. To learn more about Dysport wrinkle relaxer injections at Body+Beauty Lab, schedule a one-on-one appointment with one of our talented medical injectors.
Dysport is a good choice if you're seeking a nonsurgical option to improve mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Because dynamic wrinkles and lines form when the facial muscles are used, they can even become visible in younger patients and make them appear tired, mad, or sad. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without leaving a "frozen" appearance. Because this formula expands to reach a wide surface area, it's also great for Crow's feet, or the small wrinkles in the corners of the eyes. Many patients at Body+Beauty Lab notice visible improvements in their appearance 1 – 3 days following their procedure that can last as long as four months.
Dysport injections are administered in one of our private treatment rooms following your consultation with your injector. This service can last anywhere around 15 – 30 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is generally unnecessary because Dysport is injected with a fine needle, which results in little pain. However, a topical cream can be applied if requested. The treatment area will be cleaned and five injections will be expertly placed across the eyebrows, followed by a cold compress to lessen bruising and swelling. After receiving your injections at Body+Beauty Lab, you can resume your daily routine, but you should avoid strenuous 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 will generally disappear within a few days. You should sleep propped up for at least one night, and you may be advised to apply cold compresses as needed to reduce swelling. The improvements gained from your treatment can be noticeable in 1 – 3 days as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a softer, smoother appearance. Your results should last for around 3 – 4 months. Follow-up injections may be done at Body+Beauty Lab in Philadelphia, PA to maintain your youthful results.

What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
BOTOX and Dysport are both cosmetic injections that improve dynamic wrinkles. Dysport results are generally noticed quicker when compared to BOTOX. Additionally, Dysport results tend to last longer, and the product has a better spreadability. During your private consultation, your injector will determine whether Dysport or another wrinkle relaxer is best for your goals.
Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Many patients do not understand the different uses for wrinkle relaxers and fillers. A wrinkle relaxer addresses dynamic wrinkles whereas a filler corrects static lines. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive motions, like laughing, smiling, frowning, and other expressions. Dysport relaxes the creased muscle under the skin to smooth the dynamic wrinkle. Static lines form due to decreased skin elasticity so the injection fills the area so it is even. During your appointment, your injector will ask about your concerns and goals to help you determine if a wrinkle relaxer, a filler, or both will deliver your desired outcome.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
Body+Beauty Lab performs a number of aesthetic treatments that can be added to boost your Dysport results. Based on your areas of concern and wants, your personalized plan might include Dysport, a filler for static lines or volume in your cheeks and lips, and a skin treatment. We encourage you to be open during your consultation so we can craft a plan that provides you with an outcome you love.
How often should I get Dysport injections?
Dysport injection results can last for as long as four months. During your initial consultation, your injector will suggest how often you should get injections at our office in Philadelphia, PA to sustain your results. You might want to schedule injections sooner or further apart once you know how Dysport works on your wrinkles.
