Anytime you laugh, frown, concentrate hard, or squint due to the blinding, bright sun, your facial muscles contract. Over time, these contractions create creases and lines which become etched into your face, making you look older than you are. Fortunately, there are several treatments that can help you reduce the appearance of wrinkles formed by these facial muscle contractions.

While BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular injectable option used to improve the appearance of these wrinkles, it isn’t your only option. We offer alternatives to BOTOX® Cosmetic such as Dysport® which can achieve equally dramatic results and help you look as young as you feel.

The best way to determine whether Dysport is the right facial rejuvenation option for you is to speak with Dr. Mishkin in person. Please call 954-202-7899 today to schedule a consultation at our Fort Lauderdale office.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable used to treat specific wrinkle-causing muscles in the face in order to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and restore a more youthful look. It is derived from the same substance as BOTOX® Cosmetic, but it has a different formulation.

Dr. Berger injects small amounts of Dysport directly into the facial muscles which are causing the formation of your wrinkles. These painless injections will block the nerve impulses which cause the muscle contractions responsible for wrinkle formation. As your treatment takes effect, you will experience an improvement in the appearance of these wrinkles.

Dysport is most effective at treating:

  • Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows

Your results should last approximately 12-16 weeks. In order to maintain longer lasting results, you’ll need to return to our Fort Lauderdale office for additional Dysport treatments with Dr. Mishkin.

Benefits of Dysport

Dysport offers you the following benefits compared with BOTOX® Cosmetic:

Keep in mind that Dysport is only intended to improve the appearance of wrinkles that are caused by facial muscle contractions. If you would like to improve the appearance of wrinkles caused by aging or collagen depletion, Dr. Mishkin may recommend a dermal filler to achieve your desired results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles.
