What is Dysport?
There are 43 muscles in the face, and when these facial muscles are used overtime, creases and lines develop. Dysport is very similar to BOTOX, and both are a type of Botulinum Type A injection, but there are minor differences. Dysport has a slightly faster response time and last a bit longer than BOTOX. Patients, who have become immune to the effects of BOTOX, may have a promising reaction to Dysport. The benefits and differences between the 2 drugs can be further discussed in a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists at Snyder Dermatology in Austin, TX.
"As usual, Dr. Aranda goes above and beyond in providing a personable care that is difficult to find. She takes the time to discuss various treatment options, discusses the pros and cons of each and genuinely values your input to collectively determine the best outcome. I feel so strongly about Dr. Aranda, Dr. Snyder and their professional staff that I still went to them last year when they were out of network. Thank you Dr. Aranda, you're just great!"- B.J. / Google / Mar 25, 2017

"I felt it was necessary to post my review regarding my lip filler procedure. Yes, I was nervous, worried I would look strange, and just about ready to cancel but I believed in Dr. Renee Snyder's expertise and professionalism. Having been to her for other needs, I decided to trust her and her skills. I can't express how happy and thankful I am. The procedure itself was not bad at all thanks to the numbing cream they applied beforehand. The next day was just as Dr Snyder told me it would be. There was some swelling, one small bruise, but no pain. I followed her instructions to the letter and 3rd my lips look incredible. I cant be happier. They have the rejuvenated look I was wanting, not really bigger just more youthful. I am so thankful to Dr Snyder and wanted to share my story. Gina K"- G.K. / Yelp / Nov 25, 2018

Dysport is injected by an ultra-fine needle, and is such an easy outpatient procedure that it can be accomplished in only 15 minutes. After injection, mild swelling and redness is expected. However, ice packs are used to calm the inflammation around the injection points and assist in a quick recovery process. Results may be noticeable as soon as 2 – 3 days, but obvious results may take 4 – 7 days. Everyday activities can resume as normal almost immediately with the exception of strenuous activities. Allow at least 24 hours of recuperation before you resume excessive exercise and heavy lifting.
Patients with allergies to cow’s milk and botulinum toxin are not advised to use Dysport. Be sure to discuss any allergies or existing medical conditions you have with your dermatologist during the consultation. Patients who suffer from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, (or any other motor neuron disease), heart disease, irregular heart rhythm, diabetes or asthma are subject to have a higher risk of negative results in response to taking Dysport. Please let our staff know your medical history during our consultation.
Dysport treatments can last up to 4 – 6 months. Therefore, repeated treatments are necessary if patients desire to maintain youthful looking skin produced by Dysport. Patients who wish to continue Dysport typically require 2 – 3 treatments per year as Dysport only temporary relieves fine lines. Typically, the ideal target age for Dysport is between 30 – 65, patients below the age of 35 or above 65 have also been known to use Dysport successfully.
