Dysport® in Phoenix, AZ
Anti-aging has evolved into a science that combines surgical and non-surgical solutions for men and women who want to look younger. Dysport® is one of the many safe, non-surgical treatments that has been approved by the FDA for reducing lines and wrinkles in the upper area of the face. Men and women in Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert and the surrounding communities of Phoenix who want the benefits of Dysport® treatments rely on the expertise of board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Larry C. Leverett.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is one of several injectable treatments for wrinkles that are caused by the contractions of your muscles, such as when you furrow your brow. Over the course of your lifetime, you use facial expressions in an almost infinite number of situations. This repeated movement of the muscles means that the skin cannot relax, which in turn, creates those lines on your forehead, around your eyes and between the eyebrows. Dysport® contains a special neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes the muscles so that the skin can relax to smooth out the wrinkles.

Dr. Leverett tailors the Dysport® treatment to your individual needs, and the cost is based on the amount of product that is required for each treatment.

Good Candidates for Dysport® Treatments
Some men and women are unable to achieve the anti-aging improvements they want with Botox®. This is not necessarily a reflection of how well Botox® works compared to Dysport®, but more an indication that each person has a unique anatomy. Dr. Leverett helps you understand the key differences between the two treatments, and how these differences relate to your personal cosmetic goals and anatomy.
What Can I Expect from My Dysport® Treatments?
Dysport® is designed to be injected into the muscles that cause the dynamic wrinkles in the upper third of your face. Dr. Leverett makes several injections in specific sites along the muscles. A fine-gauge needle is all that is required for the treatment, and most patients tolerate the injections very well. If you are especially sensitive to needles or injections, Dr. Leverett will numb the skin before making the injections. The entire treatment takes only 10 to 20 minutes.
After the Dysport® Treatment
No downtime is needed after your Dysport® treatment, but you should follow some easy guidelines to allow the product to take full effect.
- Do not lay down for at least four hours.
- Avoid aspirin for one week before and two days after the treatment.
- Do not put any pressure on the treatment area for one week after the injections. This includes wearing hats and other clothing items, as well as avoiding the use of skin cleansing brushes.
