Top Dysport® Treatment in New Jersey

Dysport® is a FDA approved treatment to help relax wrinkles. It works as a neuromodulator, to help stop the local communication between nerves and muscles to help reduce the production of wrinkles. The most commonly treated areas for Dysport® include the:

  • Glabella (the space between the eyebrows)
  • Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
  • Forehead

While over 11 million people have used Dysport®, or the related product Botox®, for the treatment of wrinkles, some patients still worry that they are “toxins” that can have deleterious health effects. Botulinum toxin is the active ingredient in both of these medications. While it is true that an overdose of Dysport® can be harmful, the treatment dose where this can become an issue is over 100 times the amount typically injected. One syringe of Dysport® cannot store enough of the medication to produce a harmful effect, which is why the use of Dysport® is safe, effective and FDA-approved to help reduce wrinkles. Botulinum toxin is also used to treat cervical dystonia headaches, excessive sweating, blepharospasm and strabismus.

As a dual board certified and fellowship trained Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Undavia has mastered the anatomical relationships of the face and realizes that safety is most important. Most patients want a natural and youthful appearance, not a “frozen” look which appears artificial. Dr. Undavia will carefully measure the amount of Dysport® needed for you, and prior to treating your wrinkles, will produce only the amount sufficient for treatment, and no more. This treatment method helps Dr. Undavia put safety first by making sure there is not excess medication injected, and also allows him to individually tailor each treatment based on your unique facial features.

Dysport Procedure

This simple in-office procedure for the treatment of wrinkles via Dysport® begins with the placement of ice or a numbing agent on the areas to be treated. Afterwards, Dr. Undavia will map out the location of the injections, after reviewing your individual muscle movement of the face. Then the Dysport® injections are meticulously placed at the site of maximal muscle movement. A small amount of pressure is applied, and minimal bruising and swelling are seen.

Effects of Dysport

The results of Dysport® will typically take up to seven days to fully take effect, and last anywhere from three to six months. On the day of the Dysport®  injection, it is important not to massage the area injected, and not exercise. However, the following day, you can resume your normal activities.

Dysport® FAQ’s

Both Dysport and Botox are effective for wrinkles. They are competitive brands, and most patients react to both similarly.  Occasionally, patients may have a better result within one versus the other. 

Avoid alcohol, blood thinners such as aspirin, excessive heat, and exercise afterwards on the day of injections.
