Dysport® in Charleston County, SC

Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dennis K. Schimpf, MD, MBA, FACS, of Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery, is pleased to provide wrinkle removing Dysport® treatments to the residents of Charleston County and the surrounding South Carolina communities, with offices in Charleston, Summerville, and Hilton Head.

What is Dysport®?

Want to diminish the appearance of noticeably deep facial wrinkles and creases? Dysport® is a muscle relaxant injection similar to Botox®. This treatment was created to relax facial muscles causing deep facial wrinkles, such as smile lines, laugh lines, and frown lines. This injectable product is used to treat wrinkles caused by facial muscle movement. This treatment provides a quick, relatively painless way to relax these wrinkles. Many patients opt for muscle relaxant injections as an alternative to more invasive cosmetic surgeries, such as a facelift or brow lift. By temporarily relaxing these muscles, Dysport® causes the skin over the muscles to flatten.

Benefits of Dysport®

Looking for a way to smooth wrinkles caused by facial muscle movement, such as frown lines, forehead creases or crow’s feet? Dysport® is safe, quick and produces immediate visible results. It is a popular and widely used dermal injection treatment intended to reduce the appearance of lines, creases, and wrinkles in the face. After receiving a Dysport® treatment, patients often experience the following benefits:

  • Firmer, smoother, more radiant skin
  • Reduction of the visibility of deep creases
  • A distinctly refined, more youthful appearance
  • Improved confidence, self-esteem, and quality of life

What is the Dysport® Procedure?

The injection process can be performed in our Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery office, and it takes just a few minutes. No anesthesia is required, though a topical numbing cream may be applied if desired. A thin needle is used to inject the Dysport® solution into the targeted area of the face. Like Botox®, this solution contains a diluted, purified form of botulinum toxin. Once injected, this solution blocks signals from the nerves to the muscle, causing the muscle to relax and the wrinkles to flatten. Most treatments require multiple injections, depending on the targeted area. Once these injections have been delivered, patients are free to leave our office immediately. There is no recovery period. Most patients can return to work and other normal daily activities immediately. No bandages are required, though you should avoid rubbing your face. The results of your treatment should become visible within 14 days and remain visible for up to six months.

What is the Cost of Dysport®?

The total cost of your Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery Dysport® treatment will vary based upon how much treatment is required. During your consultation with Dr. Schimpf, we will develop a personalized treatment plan, and you will be informed of your treatment costs and methods of payment.
