Dysport is a simple, effective, nonsurgical treatment that works by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead, thereby reducing and smoothing away frown lines and wrinkles. Dysport, similar to BOTOX, is a cosmetic treatment product that is supported by over a decade of clinical experience. It safely and effectively treats a variety of conditions ranging from frown lines to axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the armpits). Many people find that, after several Dysport treatments, they don’t need another injections for a longer period time because they have “unlearned” the habit of frowning or squinting that originally led to the development of these lines. Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Marvin Spann, will discuss Dysport as well as the other injectable options that are available today.
"Dr. Grace Kim has been a family friend for years but that doesn't mean I'm biased! I got my Kybella treatment done by her and a custom acne care consultation. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor to do the Kybella. She did the treatment with precision and was super caring to my needs. The treatment worked wonders! I also had less acne problems with her recommended products and regimen. The Kybella does hurt and the swelling does last about 3 days but I would say it's worth it. 2 vials cost around 2k. My mother did get the laser fat treatment but didn't see much results but I would say all in all Couture medical's procedures most of the time work. And I would highly recommend Dr. Grace Kim as a preferred dermatologist."- N.N. / Yelp / Dec 30, 2019

"I love this clinic! I have been seen by doctor Grace Kim, and I cannot thank her enough for her kindness and for making me feel welcome at her office. She always makes sure she answers all my questions and concerns and takes the time to explain to me what is going on with my health. I feel I am not just another patient, I feel Ms. Kim cares for me. Her staff is amazing, from her nurses to the ladies at the front desk. This clinic is very clean and the interior design of the lobby/waiting area is fantastic. Thank you, Ms. Kim, I truly appreciate you!"- L.S. / Yelp / Oct 31, 2019

Dysport is injected via a fine needle to specific areas on the face. Prior to the injection, these areas are marked, and a numbing anesthetic is applied. The amount of medicine injected varies by patient depending on their aesthetic goals. Some individuals will have deeper, broader wrinkles while others wish to target fines lines (which requires less product). Dysport is administered during an in-office appointment that typically lasts about 30 minutes.
What to Expect
There is no downtime after a Dysport injection. Some mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites, but the skin will return to a normal appearance a few hours after treatment. Ice packs are often compressed to the site immediately after treatment to help calm the skin and reduce these after effects. Patients are able to resume their normal activities during the same day as their treatment. Results will become apparent within a couple of short days.
The cost for a Dysport injection will vary depending on how many vials of the medicine are needed during the time of treatment. The cost of Dysport starts at $700.

Dysport or BOTOX?
Both Dysport and Botox are safe and effective to treat facial wrinkles and both are widely available. A skilled practitioner can tell which medication may offer the best benefit. The results of a Dysport injection typically become visible faster than BOTOX, last a bit longer and spreads to a larger coverage area.
Dysport or Filler?
Patients seeking to rejuvenate their facial appearance may look into injectable fillers, as well as products such as Dysport to attain results. Both skin treatments work to decrease facial wrinkles, but use varying approaches. Injectable fillers add volume to certain facial structures, which creates a smooth result on the surface. It is common today to combine products such as Dysport and BOTOX, with an injectable filler. This has been labeled a “liquid facelift” and provides outstanding results for individuals who do not want surgery.
How Often for Treatment?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3-4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
