What is Dysport?
Medical director Dr. Kenneth Farr offers men and women several nonsurgical alternatives for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that acts like BOTOX to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by reiterated facial expressions and movements (like frowning, smiling, and laughing) that over several decades make the facial muscles lax. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a furrowed line that can be seen, even when the face is relaxed. Dysport is uniquely formulated to treat the frown lines that show up as vertical lines between the eyebrows. It temporarily relaxes the muscle so the skin is smooth but with natural-looking results that don't give you a "frozen" appearance.

"I enjoyed my consultation with Dr Farr and am so excited to proceed. I wish I had found him sooner. He answered all my questions on thread lifts and was also able to do my BOTOX on the same day. I had my threads done a week after my consultation and my results are amazing. I am very happy with his technique. His staff is also so friendly I felt right at home. Highly recommend VIP COSMETIC SURGERY."- MN / Office Visit / May 04, 2021

how does dysport work?
Dysport injections are done in one of our procedure rooms after your consultation with Dr. Farr, lasting about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually unnecessary since the injections are made using a fine needle that creates very little discomfort, but it can be applied if requested. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and several injections of Dysport will be made along the brow, followed by a cold compress to minimize swelling and bruising. Following your injections at VIP Cosmetic Surgery, you can perform daily tasks, but you should try to avoid taxing activities for at least a day.
After your Dysport treatment, you may have light swelling and redness around the injected area, but this typically will disappear in 2 – 3 days. Results are usually seen within a few days as the visibility of your dynamic wrinkles is reduced for a smoother, softer appearance. Results typically last for around 3 – 4 months.
How much does Dysport cost?
The total cost is based on how much Dysport is required for your treatment. In your consultation, your injector will develop your custom Dysport treatment plan and then estimate your cost. Ask if we have any specials on Dysport at VIP Cosmetic Surgery and which payment methods we accept.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both BOTOX and Dysport are cosmetic injections to improve dynamic wrinkles. Results from Dysport typically become visible quicker compared to BOTOX. Also, Dysport has longer-lasting results than BOTOX, and it is better for larger areas. In your pre-treatment consultation, your injector will help you understand if Dysport or BOTOX is better for you.
Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Most patients don't know the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers. Simply put, a wrinkle relaxer treats dynamic wrinkles, while a dermal filler corrects static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are created by repetitive motions, for example, smiling, laughing, frowning, and all of your other expressions. Dysport relaxes the creased muscle under the skin for a smoother appearance. Static wrinkles are caused by a lack of elasticity in the skin, so a dermal filler plumps the skin to make it look even. During your initial consult, your injector will listen to your concerns and help you decide if a wrinkle relaxer, a dermal filler, or both will deliver your best results.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
At VIP Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a number of nonsurgical treatments that can be used to enhance your Dysport results. Based on your concerns and wants, your custom treatment plan might include Dysport for dynamic wrinkles, a dermal filler for static wrinkles or volume in your cheeks and lips, plus a laser skin treatment. We encourage you to be open and honest during your initial consultation so we can make a treatment plan that will deliver an outcome that leaves you thrilled.
How often should I get Dysport injections?
Your Dysport results can be visible for up to four months. In your consultation, your injector will suggest how often you should return to our offices in Hilton Head and Okatie, SC, to maintain your results. You may increase the frequency of your treatments or wait longer in between treatments after you see the results from your initial Dysport treatment..
