In today’s age of aesthetic enhancements, treatments like Dysport® have revolutionized the way we address signs of aging. This non-surgical cosmetic procedure has garnered immense popularity among individuals who seek a rejuvenated appearance without going under the knife. As its demand increases, the significance of receiving this treatment from seasoned professionals becomes paramount. Bruno Plastic Surgery stands at the forefront, championing the blend of skill, safety, and precision essential for Dysport® administration.


Dysport®, a relative of the well-known Botox, is a formulation of botulinum toxin type A. This compound, when introduced to specific facial muscles, temporarily impedes nerve impulses. The result? A reduction in muscle activity in the targeted areas, softening wrinkles and fine lines for a fresher, more youthful appearance.

While the concept sounds simple, the actual administration is an art—finding the perfect balance to reduce wrinkles while maintaining the ability for natural facial expressions.

Choosing Dysport® offers a multitude of advantages for those seeking a non-invasive facial rejuvenation. With a focus on the forehead and the region between the eyebrows, Dysport® effectively eases frown lines, ensuring a smoother and softer visage. It is a quick in-office procedure, often taking just a few minutes, and requires minimal downtime. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately post-treatment. One of the fears many patients voice is appearing “frozen” or “overdone.” With Dysport®, results are refined, allowing for maintained facial expressiveness.

  While individual experiences may vary, many patients enjoy the benefits of Dysport® for up to 4-6 months after treatment.

Why Choose Bruno Plastic Surgery for Dysport® Injections

Venturing into the realm of cosmetic procedures necessitates trust—not just in the product but, more crucially, in the hands administering it. NEPA plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Bruno, should be your top choice for the application of Dysport® because plastic surgeons undergo extensive training, ensuring they have an intimate understanding of facial anatomy. This knowledge allows them to target just the right muscles with the perfect dosage, ensuring optimal results.

The world of cosmetics, while enticing, is not without risks. Administered incorrectly, treatments can lead to unwanted side effects. However, in the hands of a trained professional like Dr Bruno, the likelihood of complications diminishes substantially.

Each face tells a unique story. Dr Bruno will intricately evaluate your needs, tailoring the treatment to resonate with your facial structure and desired outcomes. At Bruno Plastic Surgery, our experts are well-versed with a range of aesthetic procedures. This allows us to offer a comprehensive consultation, also suggesting treatments that can complement the effects of Dysport®.

The Process

Every Dysport® treatment at Bruno Plastic Surgery begins with an in-depth consultation. We listen to your concerns, goals, and expectations, ensuring the treatment aligns perfectly with your vision.

Ensuring a successful Dysport® treatment isn’t just about the procedure itself. Proper preparation and aftercare play a crucial role in the results:

Before the procedure, patients are advised to avoid blood-thinning medications or supplements, like aspirin, for about a week prior. This minimizes the risk of bruising. Alcohol should also be avoided for a couple of days before the treatment.

After the procedure, it’s common to experience slight bruising or swelling at the injection site, which typically subsides within a day or two. We recommend avoiding strenuous activity, excessive sun, or heat exposure for 24 hours post-treatment. Sleeping with the head elevated can also help reduce any swelling.

While Dysport® remains a top choice, it’s one of several neuromodulators on the market, including Botox. Though both contain botulinum toxin type A, their formulation, onset of action, and duration may vary. At Bruno Plastic Surgery, we provide a comprehensive breakdown, helping patients make an informed decision based on their unique needs.

The realm of aesthetic treatments, while vast, hinges on trust, expertise, and a keen understanding of individual aspirations. Dysport®, under the adept administration of Dr. Bruno, offers a non-invasive gateway to youthful radiance and enhanced self-confidence. Your journey to rejuvenation is just a consultation away.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dysport Injections:

What is Dysport, and how does it work?

Dysport is an injectable neuromodulator, similar to Botox, that contains botulinum toxin type A. It is used primarily for reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles, particularly those caused by muscle contractions, such as frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Dysport works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles, temporarily preventing them from contracting. This relaxation of the muscles smooths out the overlying skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The effects of Dysport typically begin to be noticeable within a few days after the injection and can last up to three to four months, depending on the individual and the area treated. Because Dysport spreads more easily over a wider area than some other neuromodulators, it can be particularly effective for larger treatment areas.

What can I expect during a Dysport treatment session?

During a Dysport treatment session, you can expect a relatively quick and straightforward procedure. The session usually begins with a consultation where your healthcare provider will assess your facial muscles, discuss your goals, and determine the appropriate dosage and injection sites. The actual injection process involves using a fine needle to administer small amounts of Dysport into the targeted muscles. This typically takes about 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. While the injections themselves are generally well-tolerated, some patients may experience a slight pinching or stinging sensation. To minimize discomfort, ice or a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area beforehand. After the injections, you might notice some mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, which usually subsides within a few hours to a few days. You can typically resume normal activities immediately after the procedure, although it’s advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and excessive heat for at least 24 hours.

How long does it take to see results from Dysport, and how long do they last?

The onset of results from Dysport injections can vary from person to person, but most individuals begin to see improvements within 2 to 3 days after treatment. The full effects are usually visible within 10 to 14 days. Dysport works by temporarily relaxing the targeted muscles, which allows the overlying skin to smooth out, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The duration of Dysport’s effects also varies, typically lasting between 3 to 4 months. Factors such as the individual’s metabolism, the severity of the wrinkles, the area treated, and the dosage used can influence how long the results will last. To maintain the desired outcome, repeat treatments are usually recommended every 3 to 4 months. Consistent use of Dysport over time may help prolong the duration of its effects, as the muscles can become trained to relax.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with Dysport injections?

As with any medical procedure, Dysport injections come with potential side effects and risks, although they are generally minimal and temporary. Common side effects include localized pain at the injection site, redness, swelling, bruising, and headaches. These symptoms typically resolve within a few hours to a few days. Less common but more serious side effects can include allergic reactions, such as itching, rash, or shortness of breath. Rarely, Dysport can cause unintended muscle weakness, leading to issues such as drooping eyelids (ptosis), difficulty swallowing, or facial asymmetry. These effects are usually temporary and resolve as the toxin wears off. To minimize risks, it is crucial to have Dysport injections administered by a qualified and experienced healthcare provider who understands facial anatomy and appropriate dosing. During your consultation, be sure to discuss any medical conditions, allergies, or medications you are taking, as these can affect the treatment outcome and risk profile.

Who is a good candidate for Dysport injections?

A good candidate for Dysport injections is typically an adult who is in good overall health and looking to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Ideal candidates are those who have realistic expectations about the results and understand that Dysport offers temporary improvement rather than permanent changes. People who have muscle weakness in the treatment area, certain neurological conditions, or allergies to botulinum toxin should avoid Dysport. Pregnant or breastfeeding women are also advised to postpone treatment. During a consultation, your healthcare provider will assess your medical history, current health status, and aesthetic goals to determine if Dysport is the right option for you. They will also evaluate the condition of your skin and the severity of your wrinkles to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns.

How should I prepare for a Dysport injection session?

Preparing for a Dysport injection session involves a few simple steps to ensure the best possible outcome and minimize potential side effects. First, it is important to avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, and fish oil, for at least a week before your appointment, as these can increase the risk of bruising and bleeding. Alcohol should also be avoided for 24 to 48 hours before the procedure. Inform your healthcare provider of any medications, supplements, or medical conditions you have, as well as any previous experiences with neuromodulators like Dysport or Botox. On the day of your appointment, arrive with a clean face free of makeup, lotions, or creams. If you are prone to anxiety or discomfort during injections, discuss the use of a topical anesthetic or ice pack with your provider. Following these preparation steps can help ensure a smooth treatment session and optimal results.
