Dysport Frequently Asked Questions
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Adean Kingston offers Dallas, Texas men and women numerous nonsurgical alternatives for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable treatment that works similarly to BOTOX to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face. Facial wrinkles are created by repetitive muscle movements and expressions (like frowning, smiling, and laughing) that eventually create deep lines and creases that are visible, even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specifically formulated to work fast and temporarily relax certain facial muscles so the skin is smoother but with natural-looking results. Learn more about Dysport at Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC in Dallas, Texas to help you look more refreshed.
Dysport Procedure Technique
Dysport is ideal if you are looking for a fast, effective nonsurgical treatment to correct lines caused by repetitive use of certain facial muscles. Like Botox, Dysport is also used by younger individuals seeking preventive treatment of facial lines. Dysport is commonly injected into the glabella area to soften deep furrow lines creating the unwanted “eleven” lines, the forehead and around the eyes. It is also used in other facial muscles, in the masseter muscles for clenching and grinding and for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. Dr. Kingston will do a full face analysis and help you decide on which treatment areas are best for you and your cosmetic goals.

Dysport Relax and Refresh
Dysport injections are performed in one of our treatment rooms after your consultation with Dr. Kingston, taking a few minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually not needed since the injections are made with a fine-gauge needle that causes minimal discomfort, but it can be requested. A cold compress may be used post procedure to minimize swelling and bruising. After your treatment at Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC, you are free to resume normal activity.
What to Expect with Dysport®
After a Dysport treatment, you may have mild swelling and redness around the injection sites, but this should dissipate on its own in a few minutes up to a few days. Results are usually seen within a few days as the visibility of your lines is reduced for a smoother, softer appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months and follow-up treatments can be performed at Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC in Dallas, Texas to maintain your results.
Dysport Ideal Candidates
How much does it cost?
The cost relies on the number of Dysport units needed to attain your cosmetic goals. During your visit, Dr. Kingston can discuss your estimated costs and go over all your payment options, including low-interest medical financing. Be sure to ask about our monthly specials and promos for budget-saving deals.
Dysport or BOTOX?
Dysport and BOTOX are both very popular wrinkles relaxers that are safe and effective for diminishing the appearance of facial wrinkles. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kingston can tell you which product may offer you the best results. Typically, the outcomes of Dysport become visible at a faster rate than BOTOX, lasts a little longer, and spreads to a larger coverage area.
Dysport or filler?
Individuals who wish to refresh their profile may consider injectable fillers, as well as wrinkle relaxers, such as Dysport to attain a younger-looking contour. Both fillers and wrinkle relaxers work to diminish facial wrinkles but use different formulas. Injectable fillers add volume to create a smooth surface, and Dysport temporarily freezes the underlying muscles to achieve similar results. It is common today to combine products, such as Dysport, with an injectable filler, but Dr. Kingston can discuss all your options during your appointment.
Can it be combined with other treatments?
Yes. Many patients opt to combine Dysport with another treatment to enhance their results. Dr. Kingston can discuss your cosmetic goals during your consultation and let you know which procedures or products can be safely combined with Dysport.
How often for treatment?
We usually recommend that patients receive touch-ups every 3 – 4 months, but this depends on how quickly your body absorbs the product. Talk to Dr. Kingston about when to schedule your next treatment.
