Lines and wrinkles in the upper third of the face, such as the forehead and around the eyes, can be effectively dealt with by Dysport injections. Another injectable medication, Dysport is similar to BOTOX where it improves the look of moderate to severe frown lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes. It works by temporarily halting the facial muscles responsible for wrinkles. Irvine cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Marguerite Bernett, likes the filler because it produces natural-looking results without an overdone or frozen look. Results typically last up to 4 months.
"Dr. Bernett was so wonderful. I couldn't believe how thoughtful she was to get to know me and in no way made me feel rushed or less important than her other patients. I was in for such a minor treatment and for her to make me feel important really made a difference. Wonderful woman with great energy."- M. / Healthgrades / Jul 19, 2018
"Dr. Bernett was amazing. I will now only go to her. She makes every patient feel like the most important patient and that so important. She also is very knowledgeable and explains everything in detail. I highly recommend going to her for any service that she provides. It's rare to have Dr really care about your well being and this is what separates? her from the rest."- M.M. / Yelp / Jul 18, 2018

Truly one of a kind special Doctors."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jul 18, 2018
"There are no words describe how it feels to be a middle-aged woman that worked my whole life & I feel like time has taken away my beauty. I decided to take some risks and look into the world of plastic surgery. I work in the beauty industry had to have seen a lot of facelifts and a lot of really bad but jobs I work personally with three high and local Newport Coast plastic surgeons and still was never impressed. When I met Dr Bernette she was such an intelligent , calm, aristocratic loving beautiful woman! After my exam I realized how genuinely sincere she was when she told me-genuinely how beautiful I was. I really believe her.... said there are a few things that she would do 'procedures' that she suggested ( that were non-surgical )that would erase the looks of stress and tiredness, that even when I had slept for solid 12hrs a night, would not go away! I have gained such an education from her about what I eat and how that I feel projects such an inner beauty to come out! With her expertise and some of the most non-invasive and non-painful injectables! Also the help of The products she chooses to inject , she has a wide variety of choices that are all-inclusive with Hydrolonic acid ( probably spelling it terribly) and collagen have all doubled my experience of looking the way I want to look! Dr. B is a healer. I'm a single mother looking to find a healthy relationship ... but Before Dr. B I had been held back, feeling that my outer appearance was no longer attractive. NOW I feel so much more confidence when I put my hand out to shake someone's hand or smile and I feel like I don't look like I haven't slept in three days LOL. Thank you Dr B into your amazing staff it's a game changer I would recommend her Procedures and techniques to anyone! Love & Light -Hxo"- H.H. / Yelp / May 19, 2018

What to Expect
Dysport is administered during an in-office appointment that generally lasts about 30 minutes to an hour. The medication is injected through a small needle to identified areas on the face that are marked with ink prior to injection. To help control discomfort, a numbing anesthetic may be applied and cold compresses are used to help control bruising and swelling. The amount of medicine injected varies by patient as some individuals will have deeper, broader wrinkles, while others will only have fine lines to address.
After treatment, there will be some mild redness and swelling, but this goes away within a couple of hours. Another difference between BOTOX and Dysport is that the results from a Dysport injection will become visible within only a couple of days. In addition, it generally lasts just a bit longer and diffuses further from the injection site.
The expected cost of Dysport is typically around $4 - $8 per unit, which is significantly less than the $11 to $18 that BOTOX can cost per unit. This reduces the cost in the short term; however, since more Dysport is needed compared to BOTOX, the cost can be comparable in the long run.
Rejuvenate Your Face!
Dysport is a safe and effective wrinkle treatment that is used by plastic surgeons far and wide. Many patients seeking to rejuvenate their facial appearance may decide to combine Dysport with an injectable filler for optimal results. This is sometimes labeled as a “liquid facelift” and can take years off of your facial appearance. We invite you to call our plastic surgery office today and learn more about this outstanding nonsurgical treatment option.
