As you grow older, the loss of collagen and the overuse of facial muscles lead to deep facial lines and wrinkles. Forehead lines, laugh lines, frown lines, and other such wrinkles make you older, tired, and even upset. However, neuromodulators like Dysport smoothen the wrinkles to make you look more youthful.

Dr. Christopher C. Chang carefully examines your facial skin to recommend the ideal wrinkle relaxers for your unique needs. He’s an exceptionally talented facial plastic surgeon with a keen understanding of the facial anatomy, making him the ideal choice for Dysport in Washington DC & Maryland. Please schedule a consultation to discuss your Dysport treatment options today.


What is Dysport?

Dysport is a cosmetic injectable composed of a neurotoxin protein called abobotulinumtoxinA. When injected into targeted facial regions, it paralyzes certain facial muscles and relaxes the associated wrinkles, such as the horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Dysport injectables are temporary treatments, producing results that last for up to 5 months, necessitating regular maintenance injections.

How does Dysport work?

Dysport is a neuromodulator, i.e., a type of cosmetic injectable composed of a neurotoxin protein produced by a bacteria called clostridium botulinum. This neurotoxin protein prevents the nerves from communicating with your muscles, essentially blocking interactions between the brains and muscles. When injected into carefully-chosen locations on your face, Dysport paralyzes targeted facial muscles.

Dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and laugh lines, occur due to the overuse of facial muscles. They appear when you raise your eyebrows, frown, laugh, smile, etc. The overuse of these facial muscles makes wrinkles appear on your skin even when you’re not actively expressing these emotions. By paralyzing the targeted facial muscles, Dysport relaxes the associated dynamic wrinkles.

What are the benefits
of Dysport?

  • Relaxes targeted facial muscles
  • Smoothens the skin
  • Minimizes forehead lines, frown lines, and laugh lines
  • Nonsurgical treatment
  • No major side effects or complications
  • Simple in-office treatment
  • No recovery downtime

Who is a good candidate for Dysport?

Dysport is suitable for individuals with mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles, especially forehead lines, frown lines, and laugh lines. However, you must be at least 18 years of age, physically and mentally healthy, and without a history of neuromuscular diseases, such as multiple sclerosis. Dysport is also inadvisable if you’re pregnant or nursing.

What happens during the Dysport treatment?

Dr. Chang carefully examines your facial wrinkles, reviews your medical history, discusses your goals, and curates the treatment plan accordingly. He chooses the ideal Dysport dose and marks the treatment spots. The treatment is fairly simple — he delivers Dysport into the targeted facial regions with ultrafine needles. The number of injections depends on your goals.

What are the side effects of Dysport?

Dysport is a safe procedure with minimal side effects. You might experience some irritation, redness, and bruising around the treatment sites for a few days, and you’ll have to avoid strenuous workouts for a day or two. However, you can resume most of your daily activities and work as soon as you leave the medical center. There’s no downtime.

What are the Dysport results like?

The Dysport results gradually appear after 2 to 3 days — you’ll notice that your wrinkles gradually start smoothing out. You’ll notice the final results in 2 to 3 weeks. And the results last for 3 to 5 months — the exact longevity varies for each individual. Dr. Chang will help you curate the ideal treatment schedule to maintain the results.
