Dysport Injections in Beverly Hills: What You Need to Know

Dysport is a really popular alternative to Botox and has been around since 2009. Like Botox, Dysport is commonly used to both prevent and minimize the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, glabella (“11 lines” between the brows), and crow’s feet (lines at the outer corners of the eyes). It can also be used to treat a gummy smile, create a “lip flip,” smooth out chin dimpling, and relax neck bands or neck lines.

Although overuse of the treatment may result in a stiff or frozen facial appearance, Dr. Anita prefers a “less is more” approach, opting for minimal amounts of the product deployed strategically in order to produce softer, more naturally beautiful results that her patients love.

Treatment Overview

First, you will meet with Dr. Anita Patel to share your concerns and discuss the results that you hope to achieve. This will be followed by a facial analysis. Dr. Anita will then go over the risks and activity restrictions, and give you time to ask questions.

Prior to the treatment, you will fill out consent forms the skin will be cleansed, cooled with gel ice packs, and prepped for injection.

Dr. Anita will then use carefully calibrated injections in precise locations in order to produce natural-looking results tailored to your individual needs. Dysport injections are relatively pain free and quick. Pre- and post- photos (2 weeks after injection) will be taken to show you the side-by-side comparison and highlight changes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Dysport Injection?

Dysport is a neuromodulator, or toxin, that works by blocking the release of the neurotransmitter (acetylcholine) at the neuromuscular junction, which would normally signal the muscle to contract. Blocking this signal causes temporary muscle paralysis until the body is able to create new nerve terminals, typically 3-6 months.

What is Dysport Used For?

Dysport is used to treat the appearance of wrinkles and lines caused by repeated muscle contraction.

Is Dysport Better Than Botox?

Both Dysport and Botox are botulinum toxin A and target the same concerns. Preference for Dysport over Botox depends on the patient and their individual results. While results vary, for many patients Dysport lasts on average 3-4 weeks longer than Botox, and Dysport begins to work at 1 day post injection as compared to 2-3 days post injection with Botox.

Is Dysport Safe?

Dysport is FDA-approved and administered by Dr. Anita herself, who has over 10 years of experience injecting Dysport.

Does Dysport Hurt?

Most patients describe the feeling as a small pinch. Injections are done with a very small needle which minimizes pain.

How Long Does It Take for Dysport to Work?

Dysport typically begins working 1 day post injection and can take 7-10 days for full effect.

How Long Does Dysport Last?

Patient results vary, but injections typically last 3-6 months.

Is Dysport FDA Approved?

Dysport is FDA-approved to treat forehead wrinkles and frown lines.
