Are you tired of looking mad or brooding all the time? Smooth away the fine lines and deep wrinkles around your forehead, eyes, and brow with Dysport®. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Cara Downey, and her expert team of professionals are proud to offer Dysport® to residents of Houston, Sugar Land, The Woodlands, and the neighboring communities in east Texas.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an injectable cosmetic treatment similar to Botox® that relaxes the muscles in the face to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions. While most patients look to get Dysport® to get rid of the frown lines between their eyebrows, many patients also receive Dysport® to smooth away crow’s feet, lines across the forehead, and bunny lines along the bridge of the nose. Dysport® is made of the same botulinum toxin as Botox®, making its results comparable, if not better, than its injectable counterpart.
How Much Does Dysport® Cost in Houston, TX?
The average cost of your Dysport® treatment in Houston typically starts at about $400. The total cost for your Dysport® treatment will depend on the amount of product needed to help you achieve your desired results. At Heights Plastic Surgery, we accept cash and all major credit cards. We are also happy to offer financing through CareCredit® for patients. Because Dysport® is often more about cosmetic appearance and is less of a medical necessity, it is typically not covered by most insurance plans.
How is Dysport® Performed?
Dysport® is an in-office procedure that typically takes about 45 minutes to complete. Before your Dysport® treatment begins, Dr. Downey will apply a topical anesthetic to your treatment areas. This is to ensure you are as comfortable and pain-free as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Dr. Downey will then make a series of strategically placed Dysport® injections into your desired treated areas, typically around the forehead, brows, upper bridge of the nose, and outer eyes. Because Dysport® is a minimally invasive procedure, there is no formal downtime or recovery period associated with treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Dysport®?
Because Dysport® is a minimally invasive treatment, patients are able to return to their normal daily activities – including work – immediately following treatment. It is normal to experience some redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around your treated areas. These side effects will typically subside on their own within 24 to 48 hours of treatment. While you may see some results of your Dysport® treatment immediately, ultimate results will be visible about five to seven days following treatment, once the active ingredients in Dysport® have had time to take effect. Dysport® treatments typically last for up to four months at a time. Dr. Downey may recommend coming in for regular Dysport® treatments every three to four months to maintain your desired results.
