What is Dysport?
Dysport is a popular wrinkle relaxer that board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi recommends to his Newport Beach, CA patients to diminish and reduce the appearance of their dynamic wrinkles. Typically injected on the forehead and upper-face, Dysport is composed of botulinum toxin type A, a natural substance that the body produces, that acts as a temporary muscle relaxer, allowing the facial muscles to cease contracting in order to present a smoother complexion. For 4 - 6 months after receiving the injectable treatment, our patients can experience smoother, more youthful looking skin with less dynamic wrinkles and lines along their face. We invite our patients to schedule a consult at SSK Plastic Surgery to discover if this treatment could be right for them.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"I am 2 weeks post-op from a breast augmentation with Dr. Kelishadi.I could not have chosen a better doctor. Dr Kelishadi is not only an extremely skilled surgeon, but also a very kind person who truly cares about his patients - I mean this wholeheartedly - I had some concerns because of a health condition I have and Dr. K empathized and gave me complete confidence in that the surgery will go well despite this, and took extra care because of my condition. The surgery center was immaculate, the nurses and anesthesiologists were experienced, kind, and made me feel very comfortable. I was contacted by the team post-op to ask how recovery was going and even given a direct line for Dr Kelishadi if something were to come up.Recovery was much easier than expected with the Dr’s methods. I am still healing but I already find my result perfect... I cannot recommend SSK enough!"- A.A. / Yelp / Nov 17, 2022
"Tummy tuck, lipo, breast lift/revision & augmentation & fat transfer - 4 kids (2 of them being c-sections) you think you know where this story is going, right?? Nope! I actually had nice skin (not a flat tire) but saggy, uneven boobs and a big, belly...from POOR EATING HABITS. I came to talk to K wanting a mommy makeover but he gave me so much more. After meeting with me he explained that given my BMI, he would not perform the surgery until I lost weight. It was the best thing that he could've ever done for me because he didn't just give me a mommy makeover, he gave me a lifestyle change which is a mental consciousness of my health.3 months later, I was within a healthy weight and today, I'm 10 days post op. I had a tummy tuck, breast lift/revision and augmentation. I had a fat transfer and liposuction. I will not lie. IT HURTS. Well, it hurt. Today it's more irritating to be lying in a beach chair type position lol! Day 1 was fine because I was doped up. Day 2-5 I regretted doing it. I cried. I asked myself 100x why I did this but it's ok. It's mentally exhausting. But YOU CAN DO IT. You'll cry. Scream. Yell. Question it all. But you will be SO HAPPY you gave yourself this gift. You are in the BEST of hands. I'm only days days post op but I know a year from now I'll be back on here smiling and answering your questions as you go through your journey."- K. / RealSelf / Oct 30, 2022
"I went to this office to have bio identical hormones inserted under my skin. Everyone in this office is kind and professional. I was treated extremely well and felt comfortable that I was getting great care and indeed I was! I highly recommend SSK Plastic Surgery!"- S.L. / Yelp / Oct 20, 2022
"Dr. Kelishadi and his wonderful team are beyond words- seriously incredible! I scheduled a consult with him, went and immediately knew he was the one for me. Valerie at the front desk loves her job, and you can tell just by speaking with her over the phone. When I went in for my consult, I was greeted warmly by Dr. Kelishadi, Sherry, Aida and every other member of his team. They all stopped to say "Hello" and "Welcome!" After spending an hour-long consult with Dr. Kelishadi I felt validated, heard, and confident. I went ahead and booked the surgery at the end of my consult and never looked back. I did not schedule a consultation with an other surgeons because I knew he would get it right! Back story: I was unsatisfied with my previous lift and implants. My previous surgeon had even completed a revision, yet still didn’t get it right. Turns out I had the wrong profile implants and the wrong type of lift from the beginning. Insert Dr. Kelishadi and I am over the moon with my results!He completed a revision with a lift (lollipop) and placed Ultra High Profile implants to give me the exact look I wanted. Seriously, look no further. He is the one for you!"- T.C. / Yelp / Sep 19, 2022
What to Expect during Dysport
Our skilled plastic surgeon will administer Dysport through a small syringe after he has marked the desired injection sites on the patient's face. Numbing cream is available for patients who are sensitive to the pricking of needles, though very little discomfort is associated with this procedure. The entire process generally takes around 30 - 60 minutes depending on the areas being treated. Patients can expect some mild swelling or redness along the face, but this should subside quickly.
HOw long is recovery after dysport?
Dysport is a fast-acting wrinkle relaxer, with results being visible right after treatment and full results showing up just a few days after the injection. Patients should expect their results to last between 4- 6 months depending on their individual condition. Dysport can also be effectively combined with wrinkle fillers for patients who are looking to both smooth out their wrinkles as well as add volume and thickness to places that have lost their youthful appearance.
Plan Your Procedure
How much does Dysport cost?
Your cost is based on how much Dysport is used for your treatment. In your consultation, your injector will create your personalized Dysport treatment plan so they can offer a cost estimate. Ask about our current injectable treatment specials at SSK Plastic Surgery and the different methods of payment we take.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are safe and effective to treat dynamic wrinkles. Dysport results usually develop faster compared to BOTOX. Dysport also has longer lasting results compared to BOTOX and it has a better spread. During your pre-treatment consultation, your injector will determine if Dysport or BOTOX is better for your treatment.
Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Most people do not understand the difference between wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport, and dermal fillers. Simply put, a wrinkle relaxer addresses dynamic wrinkles whereas a filler treats static lines. Dynamic wrinkles are the result of repetitive movements, like smiling, laughing, frowning, and other expressions. Dysport relaxes the creased muscle under the skin to smooth the dynamic wrinkle. Static wrinkles are caused by a lack of elasticity in the skin, so a dermal filler plumps the skin so it looks smoother. In your consultation, your injector will ask about your goals to help you choose whether Dysport, a wrinkle filler, or a combination of both will deliver your best results.
Present a More Youthful Face
Dysport is a fast-acting, far-spreading injectable wrinkle relaxer, making it an effective treatment for areas around the eyes and forehead that have lost their youthful appearance. If you are suffering from signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and creases, we invite you to schedule a consult at our Newport Beach, CA office to learn more about the benefits of Dysport.
