ABOUT Dysport INJECTIONS
DYSPORT®, the newer, better BOTOX®
Dr. Ennis is a skilled injector who has been in practice for over 13 years. To help turn back the hands of time and to avoid lines and wrinkles from occurring on the upper section of the face, Dr Ennis is pleased to offer DYSPORT to those with aging skin. DYSPORT, like BOTOX, is a form Botulinum Toxin Type A that is injected into the skin to temporarily reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Once the toxin is injected the muscles that cause the wrinkles are paralyzed so that wrinkles are unable to form from facial expressions. Although there are some major similarities between DYSPORT and BOTOX, there are some stark differences between the two toxins. Both toxins paralyze the muscles so that wrinkles are not able to form, but DYSPORT is reported to respond quicker to the paralysis and muscle weakening than BOTOX.
DYSPORT injections seems to avert wrinkles as long as six months, sometimes longer, while BOTOX, on average will last about 3 to 4 months before another injection is needed. DYSPORT can be less expensive than BOTOX, but BOTOX patients find that the injections are more effective and more potent than DYSPORT.

DYSPORT injections are ideal for patients who want to smooth the visible look of dynamic lines on their upper face nonsurgically. However, it is also used as a preventative anti-aging treatment for those who are in their 20s. DYSPORT is a great noninvasive approach if you have forehead wrinkles or noticeable furrows between the brows. It is also an ideal treatment for lines that form around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended.
DYSPORT injections are available for patients directly in our office. If it is your first time to visit Premier Women’s Health Center, we may perform the DYSPORT treatment during the same day as your initial consultation. You will be asked to make various expressions involving your upper face such as frowning, squinting, and smiling to help us mark where the injections are to be placed. The skin will be prepared and DYSPORT will be injected through a fine needle, then a cold compression will be applied to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Patients may request a numbing cream or ice pack to help make their treatment more comfortable, but this usually is not necessary. DYSPORT injections typically take around 10 – 15 minutes and patients can return to their usual activities almost right away.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Following the injection, you will be allowed to resume your normal activities, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for a minimum of 24 hours. Patients are also advised to sleep upright for at least one night and are encouraged to avoid touching their face, which can accidentally spread the DYSPORT to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly bruised, red, or swollen for a few days following the injection, although most patients should not experience any severe or lasting side effects from DYSPORT treatments. In most patients, it takes less than a week before the final results of DYSPORT are visible. The results typically last up to six months. DYSPORT is also normally cheaper than BOTOX. Our patients who have DYSPORT for their first visit are so pleased after their initial treatment and thrilled about their results that we almost always get to see them every four months for a touch-up. We love having our patients back every visit as we become a part of helping them look smooth and rejuvenated!
