Dysport, like BOTOX Cosmetic injections, smooth dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the contractions of certain facial muscles. A dynamic wrinkle (like crow's feet, smile lines, and frown lines) are most visible when the muscles of the face contract to create an expression, but over time, the dynamic wrinkles etch lines in the face that can be seen even when the face is resting. Once the muscle is relaxed, the skin become smoother and lines are less visible. Dr. Manish Shah, a plastic surgeon in Denver, uses Dysport to treat larger dynamic wrinkles since Dysport injections have a better diffusion than BOTOX. Dysport can be combined with other wrinkle filler injections at Shah Aesthetic Surgery to rejuvenate the whole face by treating dynamic and static wrinkles. Dr. Shah will listen to each patient's concern and goals during the initial consultation, then develop and implement a unique plan of cosmetic services.
As Dysport affects nerve and muscular function, injection sites must be marked for the purpose of accuracy. This is to avoid any unintended muscle to receive a dose. A tiny needle is used and the product is injected into specific spots on the face. Normally, topical anesthetic is applied to help with any discomfort during treatment. The medicine can target fine lines or the deeper creases by means of adjusting the amount of medication. A typical session can last up to 30 minutes. Depending on how severe the skin condition is, multiple treatments may be recommended.
"My Muscle Wall Gave Way Giving my Abdomen an Unsightly Large Buldge - Denver, CO - I met Dr Shah in 2007 when he did a face lift for me. I was really happy with the results. When I found out no amount of diet and exercise would remedy the problem with my abdomen I contacted him. and even through I no longer live in Colorado, I knew he was the doctor I wanted to perform my surgery.I am a little over four weeks after surgery and I am thrilled with the results. I am 66 years old and healing well and now I have the tummy I have dreamed of having.Thank you Dr Shah I appreciate your skill and care!"- D. / RealSelf / Sep 05, 2015
"I felt that my nose was the one thing out of place, and so I went to Dr. Shah for help. I was really nervous because rhinoplasty is a very high risk procedure and a requires a very artistic surgeon. When everything was done, not only was I amazed how much better I looked, so were my family and friends. Most importantly, I still looked like me and my nose looked like my own. Dr. Shah is very competent and from my experience took all the time necessary to make sure my body reacted correctly, stayed healthy, and would continue to do so for the rest of my life. I?m so happy with the results."- K.K. / Google / Apr 03, 2017
"I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Shah as my surgeon. I have struggled for a long time with being insecure about the bump on my nose. My dad and I went to multiple consultations with Rhinoplasty surgeons and our favorite was by far Dr. Shah. Not only was his attitude extremely comforting and outgoing, but he gave us all of the information that we needed. He really takes care of his patients like they are his friends. Going through this surgery was probably one of the scariest things for me because I am only 17 and never had a surgery before. Although I was nervous, Dr. Shah made it go as smoothly as possible and I believe without a doubt it was worth it. I would undergo that surgery again even because of how well it was performed. I had incredible nurses to help me before the surgery and I felt very taken care of. I would recommend Dr. Shah to anyone who is considering aesthetic surgery, especially Rhinoplasty because he is extremely talented in what he does. I am incredibly satisfied with my results and I can finally be confident in my appearance, thanks to Dr. Shah!"- S.C. / Google / Mar 22, 2017
"Beautiful Results! And I owe it all to Shah Aesthetic Surgery! It has been one year since my Tip Rhinoplasty and I am ecstatic! Since I was a kid, I hated my bulbous nose. I went to several plastic surgeons over the years and was told I needed a complete rhinoplasty. Honestly, they made me feel worse about my looks, but fear and cost prevented me from moving forward. After my appointment with Dr. Manish Shah, I had easily made up my mind I would go forward. His demeanor was kind and considerate. He listened, and then gave me my various options that would result in a natural look that reflected the appearance that I always wanted. The entire process was all so comfortable and easy. Since my procedure, my confidence has increased dramatically. I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Shah to my friends and family. I know they will be well taken care of by this amazing team!"- K.P. / Google / Mar 19, 2017
"I first went to Dr Shah for my eyes lids, I also wanted to know about my jaw line (neck). He's the first doctor that mentioned my chin in regards to my (neck) jaw line. He mentioned I don't have a chin. I was very surprise because I knew this as growing up and never mentioned it to him. Other doctors stated I didn't it. I had Dr Shah do both my eyes lids and a chin implant, Oct 2014. I'm very very happy with the outcome. I love make-up and it looks great! I went back to Dr. Shah regarding my neck. He also mentioned my ears lobes, being from the "70's" ear rings were heavy and eventually my ear lobes droops with time. OMG! it looks great! Love my ears lobes, looks great with my neck lift! Not only the neck came up smooth, it looks like part of my upper chest did to. I got this done Nov 2016 and next year I'm going to him for a tummy tuck! Saw a patient of his that had a tummy tuck, omg! it's awesome! did a great job! I highly recommend him! I won't go to anyone or look for any another plastic surgeon. Dr Shah just can look at you and tell you what he sees. He never pressure me for anything. He's very good in what he does.."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 15, 2017
What to Expect@headingTag>
One advantage to Dysport is that the results are visible within 2-3 days. Similar to any injection, mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites, but cold ice packs are applied immediately after the injection to help with this. After treatment, the patient will be able to go back to a normal routine without any downtime, but should refrain from any strenuous exercise for about 24 hours. Patients who have this treatment find results satisfying as the skin will appear softer and smoother.
Dysport or Fillers?@headingTag>
Dysport, like BOTOX, is a safe alternative to correct facial wrinkles. Both of these drugs are known as muscle (or wrinkle) relaxers. Injectable fillers create a similar result, but the function behind the medicine is different. A filler works to add volume under the skin to improve facial fullness in areas where volume has been lost. This results in a smoother, softer surface. Many times, muscle relaxers are combined with an injectable filler to create maximum results.
Dysport or BOTOX?@headingTag>
Dysport and BOTOX are very similar to each other, both relax the underlying muscles to give the skin an appearance that is smoother. A couple of key differences are that Dysport diffuses faster than BOTOX and so the results become more evident sooner. Dysport has also been shown to work better in some areas of the face than BOTOX (for example, the crow’s feet). This varies by patient.
The results following a Dysport injection will last about 4-6 months. It is common for patients to return every quarter for follow-up treatment.
