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
"23 Year Old BBL Amid COVID - This site has been so helpful to me in conducting my research about a BBL. Once I decided on it, this site also helped me to find a doctor with results I liked! I had the surgery for a BBL (with tummy lipo) and neck lipo on June 12, 2020 and it's currently 9 days post-op. There will be more attachments to this review (including pictures), but I wanted to get the baseline set up. The reason I wanted to go through with this was because I saw women on here in their 40s who said they wish they did it sooner and that made me feel motivated to follow my dreams. I have never been embarrassed of my body, and I don't think I had a bad body. This surgery was just a way for me to enhance my body in a way I knew I would love. I do workout and eat healthy (this means healthy and not extreme dieting), but these are the kind of results I couldn't get at the gym. I am very happy with my decision and there will be more updates to come!"- W. / RealSelf / Jun 21, 2020
"The surgery was a breeze and the recovery was easy - I got a rhinoplasty with Dr. Shah about two years ago. From the beginning until now I've had a great experience. Both he and his staff are caring and helpful, I never felt in the dark about anything along this journey. In addition, they never pushed me to get other procedures that I wasn't interested in. The surgery was a breeze and the recovery was easy - I did the whole recovery with Ibuprofen with minimal pain. I am very happy with my results and feel much more confident in my body. I would absolutely suggest Dr. Shah to anybody looking for plastic surgery and would return to him if I decided to have more done."- D. / RealSelf / Jun 01, 2020

"A professional & efficient surgeon - Dr Shah did a great job walking me through the process. He was patient, spent time to educate me on the options, and advised me objectively on what the best treatment regimen was best for me. The procedure was handled professionally, and he diligently followed up with me in the months after the treatment. I highly recommend Dr Shah for anyone looking for aesthetic surgery"- G. / RealSelf / Feb 17, 2020
What to Expect with Dysport®
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?
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?
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.
