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 (3-4 days to take action) and lasts a bit longer (4-6 months) 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 didnt know what to expect coming here because some of the reviews on here say the staff is so rude. But i had the most pleasant experience here. From the moment i opened the door, i felt welcomed. The doctor herself was such a delight. She talked to me in a manner that made me feel so comfortable. She diagnosed me with something i kind of thought i had already, so now to see what the treatment does. I will see her again in three months. So overall, im glad i chose this office for my dermatology needs."- E.G. / Google / Feb 14, 2019
"I would highly recommend Snyder Dermatology, Dr. Cervantes and her staff are amazing! From the moment you walk into the office until the moment you leave you are greeted and made to feel welcomed. I was able to schedule an appt fairly quickly and once there the waiting was not long. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had a procedure done and was very anxious and nervous, Dr. Cervantes made me feel comfortable as she explained everything to me. My daughter was treated for acne as well and her experience here was wonderful. Dr. Cervantes made her feel special. Call....You won't be disappointed."- M.B. / Yelp / Feb 14, 2019
"Dr Cervantes is great!!!! She is very easy to talk with and I feel she did a thorough skin exam... I have had to do regular skin exams for about 10 years due to precancerous spots on my face and back. I started going to Snyder dermatology 2 years ago and feel Dr Cervantes is the Best I have seen!!"- J.H. / Yelp / Feb 13, 2019
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.
