What is Dysport?

The muscles of your face are active from the moment you wake up until you go to sleep. Over time, your constant facial motions etch lines and wrinkles on your face, leaving you looking older than you feel. Men and women who are interested in revitalizing their appearance rely upon neuromodulators such as Dysport to retain a younger facial appearance. Dysport is a cosmetic injectable made from a neurotoxin specifically-designed and FDA-approved to smooth facial lines and creases.

  • What are the benefits of Dysport?

    When injected by the expert hands of Dr. Steven L. Ringler, Dysport smooths lines and wrinkles, creating a refreshed appearance while preventing the development of deeper creases. These injections require a precise technique to achieve a very fresh, natural-looking result. Dysport can be used for the treatment of dynamic facial lines including:

    • Forehead lines
    • Lines between the eyebrows
    • Crow's feet
    • Horizontal neck bands
    • Drooping eyebrows
    • And more
  • What can I expect during treatment with Dysport?

    Dysport injections are quick and relatively painless, performed in the comfort of our private Grand Rapids offices in just minutes. Dr. Ringler will first apply a topical numbing cream to the area requiring treatment. Once the numbing has taken effect, he will carefully administer a series of small injections precisely delivering small doses of Dysport to relax the facial muscles. You should feel little discomfort during the injection procedure. Once Dr. Ringler has completed the injections, you can return to your busy day without any downtime.

  • What can I expect following treatment with Dysport?

    You may experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites after Dysport injections. This is temporary and should subside within a few days. Most patients see results as soon as two to three days following Dysport injections, with maximum smoothing in about two to three weeks, lasting about three to four months before retreatment is needed.

    You should avoid vigorous exercise the day you receive Dysport injections and should avoid touching or massaging the area as this can cause Dysport to spread. You should also remain upright for at least four hours following treatment.
