What is Dysport?
At DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics in Boston, MA, we offer men and women many nonsurgical alternatives for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that works just like BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines on the face. Dynamic wrinkles form over time because of repetitive facial movements and expressions, such as laughing, smiling, and frowning that make the facial muscles tight. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a furrowed line that is obvious, even when your face is resting. Dysport is specifically formulated to address one of the most common dynamic wrinkles, which occur in between the eyebrows or the frown lines. It temporarily relaxes the muscle so the skin is smooth but with natural-looking results that don't give you a "frozen" face. Learn more about Dysport injectable treatments at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa to help you appear more youthful.
What are the benefits of getting Dysport?
Here at DeRosa Center for Facial Aesthetics, our patients who receive Dysport injections enjoy a number of benefits from their procedures, including:
- Younger, fresher-looking skin
- Smoothing of wrinkles and folds in the face
- Reduction of glabellar ("11") lines on the face
- Treatment for excessive sweating or moisture
Is Dysport right for me?
Dysport is ideal if you want a nonsurgical procedure to improve mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines happen because of chronic use, they may become visible at any age and make you appear mad, tired, or sad. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without giving you a "frozen" face. Since Dysport's formula expands to reach a group of wrinkles, it's also ideal for Crow's feet, the fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes. Many patients at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa see visible improvements in their appearance a few days after their treatment that can last for up to four months.
"Truly a first class operation! Nicole is the best! She takes the time to listen to your concerns and makes recommendations without pushing anything. The staff are all extremely personable, knowledgeable and professional. I would hands down recommend Nicole and The DeRosa Center."- K.C. / Google / Feb 01, 2023
"I needed to have my entire nose restructured. I was very apprehensive about going to a location that was not “in” one of the major Boston hospitals. In the end, after many consults elsewhere and recommendations from top Boston MD’s, I decided to move ahead w Dr. DeRosa and have her do the procedure in her Newbury Street surgical center. The procedure went perfectly, I felt so at ease and the results are just perfection. She is beyond talented. I feel so lucky to have been her patient. I go to her office now too for all my facials- the best!"- E.S. / Google / Jan 27, 2023
"I love this place. The nurses are fabulous-they are skilled and detail oriented. The receptionists are amazing! So incredibly smart and helpful. I’m writing an addendum to my first review because I am SO HAPPY! Over the course of the past 6 months I have seen both Julia and Nicole for almost monthly appointments for a variety of things (filler, Botox, and recently a Geneo facial). Both women are incredibly knowledgeable, skilled and have brought me results that are above and beyond my expectations. The level of skill, expertise, and the extraordinary “bedside manner” of the people at DeRosa is remarkable and the best I’ve experienced anywhere."- J.O. / Google / Jan 21, 2023

How is dysport performed?
At the same time as your consultation, we can administer Dysport injections in one of our procedure rooms. The treatment lasts about 15 – 30 minutes. Usually, a local anesthetic is unnecessary because the Dysport is injected with a fine needle that causes little pain. However, we can apply numbing cream if needed. Before the treatment, we will clean your skin, then administer five injections of Dysport along the brow. Next, we will use a cold compress to lessen the bruising and swelling. Following your injections at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, you can resume regular tasks, but you should avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours.
What can I expect after Dysport Injections?
After a Dysport session, you may notice mild swelling and redness around the injected area, but this should disappear in a few days. You should sleep propped up for the first night, and you may want to apply cold compresses if needed. Within 1 – 3 days, you should see improvements as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles decrease and your complexion becomes softer and smoother. Usually, your results last for about 3 – 4 months. To extend your results, we can administer more injections at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Boston, MA.
How much does Dysport cost?
Your cost is based on how much Dysport is needed for your treatment. During your initial consultation, your injector will develop your unique treatment plan so they can offer a cost estimate. Ask about our current injectable treatment specials at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa and which methods of payment we accept.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are injections that treat dynamic wrinkles. The results of a Dysport injection generally become visible faster compared to BOTOX. Dysport also tends to last longer compared to BOTOX, and it has a better spread. During your consultation, your injector will help you understand whether Dysport or BOTOX is ideal for your needs and goals
Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Many patients don't understand the difference between wrinkle relaxers and wrinkle fillers. Simply put, a wrinkle relaxer corrects dynamic wrinkles while a wrinkle filler corrects static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive movements, such as smiling, laughing, frowning, and other facial expressions. Dysport relaxes the creased muscle under the skin for a smoother appearance. Static lines are caused by a lack of elasticity in the skin, so a wrinkle filler plumps the skin — so it is even. In your consultation, your injector will ask about your concerns and goals to help you choose whether a wrinkle relaxer, a dermal filler, or both will produce your desired outcome.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
At DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we offer many nonsurgical treatments that can be used to enhance your Dysport results. Depending on your needs and wants, your custom treatment plan may include Dysport injections for dynamic wrinkles, an injectable filler for static lines or volume in your cheeks and lips, as well as a laser skin treatment. Be open and honest during your consultation so we can develop a treatment plan that provides amazing results.
How often should I get Dysport injections?
Your Dysport results may be visible for 3 – 4 months. During your initial consultation, your injector will suggest how often you should return to our office in Boston, MA, to sustain your results. You may increase the frequency of your treatments or wait longer once you see the results from your initial Dysport treatment.
