Dysport, like BOTOX, uses a refined formula of botulinum toxin type A to temporarily relax certain muscles in the face. Houston, TX board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Shenaq, provides this injectable wrinkle relaxer to diminish dynamic wrinkles and lines on the face, like frown lines on the forehead. Once these muscles are relaxed, the recurrent shrinkage that creates dynamic wrinkles will be limited and the skin above the muscle will be smoother. You can have skin that looks refreshed and youthful for about 4 – 6 months. Visit our offices in Sugar Land or downtown Houston, TX for a completely private consultation.
"Dr. Shenaq has been amazing with my reconstruction. I am so grateful for all he has done to help me. His staff is amazing as well. I can’t thank them enough, my life is forever changed."- L.P. / Google / Jan 17, 2022
"I am grateful to have Dr. Shenag on my care team. Before going into a bilateral mastectomy surgery, I thought I would need an additional surgery for the reconstruction, but Dr. Shenag was miraculously able to do immediate reconstruction to save me from having another surgery. Not only he saved me from going through another painful surgery, he again miraculously reconnected the damaged nerves for me to be able to feel sensation again, Unfortunately, pain is the first sensation I feel but I know it is only temporary since it takes time for nerves to heal. I can’t thank Dr. Shenag and his staffs ( Jessica & Desiree) enough for taking care of me…🙏🙏🙏"- N. / Google / Jan 22, 2022

His attention to detail is beyond measure. The quality of his work is an art-form and he will take all the time in the world he needs and that you need from the moment you meet for a consultation to not giving up until he is satisfied in the operating room, and then any follow up consultations and appointments afterwards. He sees it through to the end and keeps the relationship going and is accessible. The most approachable Doctor I have ever met and although he does this work everyday...each patient, each approach is unique and tailormade. I was hopeless I could ever be confident again and Dr. Shenaq gave that back. I am forever grateful. Thank you!"- F.D. / Healthgrades / Jan 04, 2021

Dysport is a great wrinkle treatment for patients who have:
- Wrinkles around the corners of the eyes (Crow’s feet)
- Frown lines
- Smile lines
- Other dynamic wrinkles
What to Expect
The doctor can administer Dysport injections in our office, often on the same day as your consultation in about 30-60 minutes. Using an ultra-fine syringe, Dysport is injected in areas marked by the doctor. Most patients do not feel any discomfort after the initial prick of the needle, but a numbing cream may be used to improve your comfort. Patients experience some minor redness and swelling for a couple of hours, but a cold compress can reduce these side effects.
Dysport commonly lasts longer and spreads further from the injection site than other wrinkle relaxers, on the market, which makes it ideal for the areas around the eyes (commonly known as “crow’s feet”). You may see some results right away, but your final results will be revealed a few days after your treatment. Dysport may be used with injectable wrinkle fillers to further improve the appearance of wrinkles and add volume to needed areas.
How much does Dysport cost?
The cost is based on how much Dysport is used for your treatment. During your initial consultation, your injector will create your unique treatment plan so they can offer a cost estimate. Ask if we have any specials on Dysport at Plastic Surgery of Houston and the different methods of payment we take.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are injections that improve dynamic wrinkles. Dysport results generally develop faster compared to BOTOX. Additionally, Dysport can have longer lasting results compared to BOTOX and it spreads to a larger coverage area. In your initial consultation, your injector will help you understand whether BOTOX or Dysport is better for your needs and goals.
Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Many patients do not understand the different uses for wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport, and dermal fillers. A wrinkle relaxer addresses dynamic wrinkles whereas a dermal filler corrects static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive motions, such as frowning, smiling, laughing, and other facial expressions. Dysport relaxes the muscle under the skin for a smoother appearance. Static wrinkles are the result of low skin elasticity, so a dermal filler plumps the area so it is even. During your initial consultation, your injector will ask about your concerns to help you choose whether Dysport, a wrinkle filler, or a mix of both will deliver your desired outcome.
