You may have heard about one of the newest and most effective facial fillers called Dysport®, a nonsurgical treatment that serves as an alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Like other nonsurgical facial treatments, Dysport was created to help men and women minimize the appearance of signs of aging like wrinkling, created from repetitive facial expressions over time.

How It Works

Like BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport’s active ingredient is botulinum toxin type A, which works by forcing the facial muscles into a state of contraction. The botulinum toxin is suspended in a solution that is very similar to BOTOX, but with a unique formula that determines a variance in overall effectiveness and longevity of results. Dr. Robert Aycock will tailor your dose and treatment frequency to fit your skin type and help you achieve your individual goals.

BOTOX or Dysport?

Both BOTOX and Dysport can have rejuvenating effects on areas of the face and neck affected by aging and sun damage. Many patients experience quicker and longer-lasting results with Dysport, but individual results vary. For some patients, a combination of BOTOX and Dysport may be optimal. Dysport is also a great alternative for patients who have built up a resistance to BOTOX over time. Dr. Aycock will go over the features of each and help you choose the treatment that will provide the best results for your problem areas.

If you are concerned about loss of facial volume, you may want to supplement your Dysport or BOTOX treatment with a nonsurgical facial filler.

Dysport can help you look younger by improving the appearance of:

  • Frown lines/laugh lines
  • Worry lines
  • Asymmetrical eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Downturned mouth corners
  • Neck bands
  • Chin dimples

If wrinkling and other signs of aging are hurting your confidence, consider the many benefits of Dysport and other facial filler treatments. You can learn more about our extensive facial rejuvenation options when you contact Dr. Aycock for a skin care evaluation.
