Overview

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.

Administering Dysport

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!

Got a gynecomastia surgery last year. Completely life changing and extremely happy with the results. The team here does a great job explaining everything and making sure you're as comfortable as possible.

I honestly regret choosing this doctor for my rhinoplasty. I went to him in 2018 for my first rhinoplasty and I trusted that he could give me my desired results. A couple months of healing and my results showed that I had an inverted V deformity nose which means he cut too much of nasal bone down. I went back to see him and he told me that we can do a revision to fix it, add a graft to the middle and it would be fixed. Since I added that, my nose is now very droopy and I’m having severe breathing problems and cannot breath naturally like I used to. There is also a dent on my nose and it looks extremely crooked especially when I smile. Also if you are an experienced doctor, you would know that if you are slimming down the bridge of the nose, whatever part you didn’t make smaller will appear very large in my case, as with my tip drooping over. I’m still very unhappy/sad with my nose after two rhinoplasties with him and I payed for the initial surgery which was over 8k and for the revision I had to pay over 2k for anesthesia fees. I went back to him recently to talk about the issues I am having. He presented that I do a tip surgery that will put more graft in the tip of my nose and bring it up which he says is non invasive. I was quoted another 6.7k to fix the issue that he initially was unable to do in one surgery. I am now going to pay more money to be happy with the tip of my nose, and am so fearful that something could go wrong since this will now have to be my third time getting a rhinoplasty. I wish I could go back and chose a different doctor. I think doing your research and at least consulting with many doctors before you make your decision, and try to avoid having to do multiple surgeries to fix the previous one.

Really satisfied with my results! I was super skeptical about finding the right surgeon for my BBL revision but Dr Shah was really confident and he succeeded my goals. I also loved that he didn’t push me to spend more money then I had to. All of his staffing was super sweet and patient with me as well!

What to Expect

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.

About Us
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.
Additional Treatments?
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.
