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.

"It is hard to put into words how very happy I am now that I have had the Mommy Makeover. After all of the exercising and dieting I did after my last pregnancy, the loose tummy skin and drooping, smaller breasts and stubborn fat, uhhh so frustrating. So with Dr. Bernett's s t outstanding treatment and very caring manner, I feel like a new person! There is no other way to describe it. I am happy being a mom of course even before the surgery, but now I am so very happy with my improved look : )"- Anonymous / RateMDs / May 31, 2015
"I feel like a new person after my Mommy Makeover! I recently was treated by Dr. Bernett, and I couldn't be happier. After my last pregnancy my body changed a lot, not only weight gain, also drooping breast and the loose tummy skin. I did a good amount of exercise and was careful with my diet, but the drooping, and loose skin did not improve much. Plus some areas of fat are just darned stubborn! Now that those trouble areas are lifted and tightened, I truly feel so much better. Dr. Bernett really took care of me and was careful and caring all the way. Everything looks great, and I am feeling so much better !!!"- H.M. / Wellness / May 30, 2015
"I am very happy with the procedures Dr. Bernett did for me. I had a face and neck tightening procedure which removed some fat and tightened my skin. As I am getting older, I also gained a little weight. My cheeks and chin were sagging, and I was getting a double chin. Now, I look ten years younger and feel better, too! I did a laser firming treatment for my entire face and my skin looks really beautiful. Several of my colleagues from work also went to see Dr. Bernett after they saw my results and were very satisfied. She is professional, very thorough and what I really love is that she takes her time and she cares."- M.N. / Yelp / Apr 22, 2015

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.
