Why Do I Have Wrinkles?
Wrinkles develop for two reasons: repeated manipulation of the skin and loss of youthful volume. Wrinkles that form between the eyebrows or under the eyes are what are known as dynamic wrinkles. This name refers to the fact that the muscles move and crease these parts of the face when we frown or smile, respectively.
Repeated use of these facial muscles can lead to muscle tension and neural overfiring. As a result, these muscles hold onto these lines, even when you are not actively forming this facial expression.
This most commonly leads to the development of small vertical lines between the eyebrows, which are known as glabellar lines, frown lines, or “elevenses.” Dysport, as well as Botox and Jeuveau, are muscle-relaxing injectables that target and relax these muscles to restore the smooth, youthful look of your skin and face.
To address wrinkles that form from loss of skin volume, known as static wrinkles, we offer dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers contain natural, proven ingredients that restore youthful volume to the skin and erase lines and wrinkles. In the interest of helping our patients find the right type of filler for their unique features and aesthetic goals, a wide range of dermal fillers are available at Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey.
Even though wrinkles are a common issue that develop with age, they are not something you have to live with forever!
A quick, convenient injection of Dysport is the perfect way to replace your aged, tired-looking lines with a calm, more natural expression. Dysport and fillers are the perfect compliment for easy, comprehensive facial rejuvenation!
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a wrinkle-relaxing injectable.
The main ingredient in Dysport is botulinum toxin type A, a purified form of the neurotoxin type A. Botulinum toxin type A is a neuromodulator, which means that it blocks the neural signals from your brain that are telling your muscle to hold your unwanted wrinkles in place. A targeted Dysport injection is all it takes to relax the muscle and restore the smooth, wrinkle-free texture of your skin.
Results of Dysport last for four months. Patients can easily maintain their relaxed, healthy expression with the help of conveniently-scheduled maintenance treatments with Dysport.

Dysport Vs. Botox
Both Dysport and Botox are FDA-approved wrinkle relaxers. They share the same ingredient, botulinum toxin A. However, there are two differences between the two injectables:
- The trace proteins in their formulas vary slightly
- Dysport has a lower price per unit than Botox
Whether Botox or Dysport will produce a better result for you is often a matter of your body chemistry. Some patients love the results (and price!) they get with Dysport, while other people see longer-lasting outcomes from Botox. Our nurse injector will help you determine if Botox or Dysport will be a better anti-aging solution for you!
What Can Dysport Treat?
Dysport is most often used to treat frown lines, which are the small vertical lines that form on the forehead between the eyebrows. In some cases, Dysport can also be used to address crow’s feet and forehead lines. We will be happy to assess your case and work with you to customize your skin rejuvenation to your unique case of facial aging and personal goals for your appearance.
If you have lines between your eyebrows that make you look tired, aged, or frustrated, even when you are perfectly relaxed, you are an excellent candidate for treatment with Dysport. Dysport is an ideal solution for men and women over 18 who have a busy schedule but still want to look and feel their best: with Dysport, you can address your facial aging and get right back to your day. No downtime is needed!
If you are pregnant, have a milk allergy, have experienced breathing problems, or have shown botulinum toxin sensitivity in the past, Dysport may not be the right anti-aging solution for you. Patients who are over the age of 65 or have more advanced facial aging may be better candidates for alternate anti-aging treatments.
Anti-aging solutions at Premier Plastic Surgery are custom-tailored to address the unique needs of our patients. In order to create the best cosmetic solution for you, we will meet with you during a consultation to discuss the benefits and outcomes you can achieve with Dysport. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this rejuvenating injectable!
In order to make sure your treatment is appropriate for you and your medical profile, we ask our patients to please share their health history with us, as well as their current medication and supplement use.
If you need to discontinue use of any medications or supplements prior to your treatment, we will let you know at this time. We will examine your skin and discuss the results of your previous cosmetic treatments with you, if applicable. Once we have a clear understanding of your goals for your skin, we will make our professional recommendation of your best, most effective treatment options.
Patients frequently combine dermal fillers with Dysport, Botox, or Jeuveau. Dermal fillers add natural-looking and -feeling volume to the face in order to fill in wrinkles and improve the contour of the facial features.
Fillers we offer include Juvederm XC, Juvederm Voluma XC, Restylane, Radiesse, and Belotero. Depending on the filler you choose, results last six months, up to two years!
Together, Dysport and dermal fillers target and address the specific causes of your facial aging. This results in the most natural, long-lasting rejuvenation that looks and feels just right for YOU!
Treatment with Dysport
Dysport is administered by Jennifer DeMaio, our Nurse Practitioner and Injection Specialist. Treatment with Dysport is quick, targeted, and minimally-invasive. Dysport is administered using a fine, medical-grade needle: most patients compare it to the pinch of a bug bite and find the treatment tolerable. We are also happy to apply a topical numbing cream to patients who would like to be completely comfortable during their treatment. The topical numbing cream will need to be given time to take effect before the treatment can begin.
Injection with Dysport often takes less than ten minutes. Nurse DeMaio will skillfully and artfully target the muscles holding your unwanted lines in place. Once your neurotoxin has been administered, your treatment will be complete!
No downtime is required after a Dysport treatment! You will be free to get right back to your day.
The skin at the injection site may become red or slightly swollen after your appointment, but these conditions will subside within twenty-four hours. It is safe to resume makeup application after twenty-four hours. Avoid touching or scratching the treated area for the first day after your treatment. You will receive instructions regarding the safest way to wash your face during this window of time.
Limit sun exposure and practice safe sun protection over the days following your Dysport treatment.
Dysport takes two to three days to take full effect.
Once the neuromodulator has engaged with and relaxed the muscle at the injection site, your unwanted lines will vanish! The skin in the treated area will become smooth and rejuvenated. People will see you for you, not the lines on your face!
Results of Dysport last an average of four months.
It depends. Dysport and Botox have the same active ingredient. Due to the fact that the proteins in their formula vary slightly, some people find that they see better results with one injectable over the other. The type of injectable that is best for you will be a matter of your unique body chemistry and personal satisfaction with your results.
Dysport treatment pricing is determined by the size of the treatment area and the number of units that will be needed to achieve the desired result. You and Nurse DeMaio will work together to determine the amount of Dysport that will be needed during your private Dysport consultation. Once you and Nurse DeMaio agree on the details of your personalized injection plan, you will receive the appropriate cost breakdown.
