What is Dysport?
Dr. Jerry Chidester, or "Dr. Chiddy," offers his Draper, UT patients many nonsurgical treatment options for skin rejuvenation. To reduce and soften dynamic wrinkles and lines on the face, Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that works, like BOTOX. Dynamic wrinkles happen because of repetitive facial movements and expressions. Eventually, this makes the facial muscles tight and causes the skin to wrinkle. Even when your face is relaxed, the fine line or wrinkle may remain. Dysport is uniquely formulated to treat the vertical frown line that appears in between the eyebrows. It temporarily relaxes the treated muscle so the dynamic wrinkle is smoother and provides natural-looking results.

Is Dysport For You?
Dysport is a good, nonsurgical procedure for treating mild, moderate, or severe vertical frown lines that appear in between the eyebrows. Dynamic wrinkles and fine lines are caused by repetitive muscle use so they can develop at any age. Unfortunately, this can make you look sad, mad, or tired. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that treats dynamic wrinkles and provides natural-looking results. Since Dysport's formula spreads to reach a cluster of wrinkles, it also works well for Crow's feet. Following your Dysport treatments, you should have visible results that appear in a few days and last for about four months.
How Are Dysport Injections Performed?
After your consultation with Dr. Chiddy, he will administer your Dysport injections in a spacious treatment room. Usually, it takes him around 15 – 30 minutes to complete the treatment. Patients generally do not require a numbing cream or local anesthetic because Dr. Chiddy injects the Dysport with a fine needle. If needed, please let us know, and we can apply a numbing cream to reduce any discomfort. To start your treatment, the skin is cleaned to remove any oils or lotions, and then Dr. Chiddy places five Dysport injections along the eyebrows. Once we have administered the injections, we apply a cold compress to help reduce bruising and swelling. Following your procedure, you can resume your daily activities, but you should avoid strenuous exercise for a day.
What to Expect After Dysport Injections
Patients may experience slight swelling and redness near the injections sites, but these symptoms will disappear within 1 – 3 days. Dr. Chiddy recommends sleeping upright after your appointment and applying cold compresses. Patients can see improvements in the next few days as the dynamic wrinkles start to become smoother, softer in appearance. Typically, results last for about 3 – 4 months. To maintain your results, we can help you schedule follow-up treatments.
Should I get Dysport or plastic surgery?
Plastic surgery is preferable for men and women with excess folds of sagging skin. While Dysport does provide more subtle results, it is much less invasive than cosmetic surgery and requires no downtime. If you have fine lines, Crow's feet, or deep wrinkles in your brows, cosmetic injectables like Dysport may be perfect for you.
What about dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injected under the skin, providing your face with a fuller look. On the other hand, Dysport is injected directly into the facial muscles, which prevents wrinkles from forming in the first place. During your anti-aging assessment in Draper, we can let you know which injectable is right for your needs and goals.
Will my results look natural?
Dr. Chiddy is a pro at achieving natural-looking results with every injectable treatment. Dysport and dermal fillers will help your face look refreshed but not overdone. You may also have swelling or redness right after your appointment, but this is normal and typically only lasts a day or two.
How much does Dysport cost?
The cost for Dysport will depend on how much product is used according to what you're looking to achieve. During your consultation, your injector will design your personalized treatment plan so you can learn more about pricing. Ask about our current injectable treatment specials at Jerry Chidester, MD, and the different payment methods we accept.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both BOTOX and Dysport are cosmetic injections to correct dynamic facial wrinkles. Dysport outcomes typically develop faster when compared with BOTOX. Also, some patients have found that Dysport results tend to last longer than BOTOX. During your consultation, your injector will help you choose which type of wrinkle relaxer is ideal for your needs.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
At Jerry Chidester, MD, we offer many cosmetic procedures that can complement the results of your Dysport injection. Based on your needs and goals, your personalized treatment plan may involve Dysport for dynamic wrinkles, a dermal filler to treat deep lines or volume loss in your lips or mid-face, as well as a laser procedure. Tell us about your goals during your initial visit to help us design a treatment plan that creates the outcomes you seek.
