Lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows (frown lines) and around the eyes (Crow’s feet) can cause a person to look significantly older. However, these lines and wrinkles can be effectively diminished with Dysport. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer, similar to BOTOX®, used by Dr. Kristen Ann Aliano Messina, and facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho in Plano, TX. They utilize it in our practice to cease the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles to form. Though similar to BOTOX, Dysport is said to be faster-acting and provides longer-lasting results. Additionally, it spreads out more from the injection site, which necessitates fewer injections.
"Dr Ho is amazing. I can't say enough great things about him and his work. 23 years ago I got bit by a tick, got Lymes disease and the right side of my face went paralyzed (Bells Palsy). Due to the paralysis of the right side of my face the muscles spasm, it hurts and distorts my smile and eyes. Dr Ho used Dysport to settle down the spasms and to make my smile and face symmetric. Since going to Dr Ho I don't look in the mirror and see the paralysis. Dr Ho's staff is absolutely fabulous. Everyone is so helpful and kind. Thank you to Dr Ho and his staff. I will be forever grateful that I found you. "- K.A. / Facebook / Sep 09, 2016
"Dr. Ho is an Artist!! - Frisco, TX - !I am so pleased that I made the decision to go to Beautiful Faces. When I first got to Dr. Ho, I was completely at a loss as to what to do to deal with my ageing skin. I looked so incredibly tired. When I visited with Dr. Ho about options for what could be done, he suggested we go slow with the treatments. Over the past 4 months, I have had 3 Sculptra treatments, along with Restylane Silk and Dysport to fill some vertical lines between my brows and also nasolabial lines. I could not be more pleased. The changes that have come about with the Sculptra over the span of the 3 treatments have just been amazing. I no longer look tired and my self-confidence has had a huge boost. Dr. Ho and his staff have been so kind and supportive through this process. I so wish I had done this sooner, but I am extremely pleased with the wonderful results As far as I am concerned, Dr. Ho is an artist!"- K. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2016
"Sculptra and Dysport with Dr. Vu Ho of Plano - Plano, TX - Dr. Ho injected my Sculptra and I absolutely love it! He explained how it stimulates collagen and that I would need one treatment per decade of life, which would mean about 4-5. I could really see the results the best after the 2nd treatment, but it got even better after the third one! He is very down-to-earth, personable, and has a calmness that makes me comfortable and trust him with anything he does with my face. He is definitely a perfectionist and wants it just right! I will continue to go to Dr. Ho for all my facial work! Additionally, his entire team is so friendly and awesome!"- J. / RealSelf / Sep 02, 2016
"Truly the kindest & considerate staff I've ever experienced! Dr Ho always gives genuine advice & never recommends anything you don't need. He's the best & it reflects in his staff "- J. / Demandforce / Jan 13, 2017
"I have been trusting Dr.Ho and his staff for at least 8 years. I am always pleased with my experiences and my results. He always listens to my concerns and never tries to talk me into doing something that I don't want to do. I feel that he has gotten to know what I like and keeps that in mind. I am very picky and do not like to look like I have fillers or a frozen face. I am a regular user of Dysport or Botox, but this last time, Dr. Ho asked me to try Jeuveau. It is suppose to work the same way as Botox/Dysport, but effects are seen in hours instead of days. I found this to be true and really like the Jeuveau. My experience was that the effects were noticed with in 3-6 hours. Full effects were apparent the next day, where as with the other medications if takes 3 days to 3 weeks for the full effect to be seen. I trust Dr.Ho and his staff tremendously and am always happy to hear about the new products/treatments.I love knowing that Dr. Ho stays current with trends."- D.S. / Google / Sep 16, 2019
During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if Dysport is right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for Dysport will have:
- Lines and wrinkles around the eyes (Crow’s feet)
- Moderate to severe frown lines
- A desire for natural-looking results
- A desire for fast-acting results
What to Expect
Dysport treatment is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed right in the office. After the plastic surgeon determines the correct dosage and ideal spots to inject the candidate, the treatment site will be cleaned and prepped. If a patient is concerned about discomfort, a numbing cream can be applied prior to the injection. Dysport will then be injected into the designated areas with a thin syringe. The entire procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately, but there could minor swelling and redness afterward. Patients can use a cold compress to alleviate these side effects.
Dysport can last 3 – 4 months before another treatment is needed. Since Dysport spreads out more from the initial injection site, patients can expect a large number of wrinkles and lines to be diminished rather quickly. Typically, results are noticed within a few days of treatment. Results can look natural without a “frozen” look.
