BOTOX is one of the most popular of all facial treatments, and for good reason. The smoothing effect of BOTOX, when it is injected correctly and in the right quantity, can take years off your appearance in a treatment requiring only minutes of your time.

Dysport: a BOTOX alternative

While BOTOX is the most well-known of all neuromodulators, it is not your only option. Dysport is a slightly different formula and may be appropriate for certain facial areas, as it is thinner and spreads differently, and can create a very natural look in smoothing forehead lines. It was developed as an anti-aging treatment that allowed for greater facial expressiveness to be retained.

Although the formula is thinner and spreads more easily, the critical point in a successful treatment is in the skills of your injector. Dysport must be injected into the correct muscle strands, and in the right quantity to produce the result you envision. Never risk a facial treatment from anyone other than a highly-skilled medical professional with years of experience in neuromodulator injections.

Is Dysport right for me?

If you struggle with the signs of aging skin, you may be a candidate for Dysport injections. The formula is unique, with smaller molecules that work faster and spread more easily. This may not be appropriate for some facial areas—but for forehead creases, Dysport may be the optimal choice.

What are the benefits of Dysport?

Dysport offers several important benefits, including:

  • Fast, easy treatment
  • Spreads evenly
  • Results appear more quickly due to thinner formula
  • No anesthetic required
  • A soft, natural look
  • FDA-approved

Why select Dr. Flugstad for Dysport treatments?

The two critical issues in determining the success of any treatment are the selection of the correct product and injection technique. While Dysport and BOTOX are very similar, our board-certified plastic surgeon has extensive knowledge and experience with neuromodulators, and understands the differences between the products. His conservative approach and precision injection technique are the reason so many patients rely upon him to keep them looking young and vital.


How often will I need injections?

How long your Dysport results last vary greatly with each patient and are difficult to predict, but you can certainly detect if they are beginning to wear off. It has been found that getting a maintenance treatment before the results have completely worn off may be effective in extending the positive effects, as time goes on.

Am I a good candidate for Dysport?

Dysport is generally considered a highly-safe treatment for most adults, but it is contraindicated for those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, are sensitive to the active ingredient, have milk allergies, or are over 65.

How soon will I see results and how long will they last?

Results from Dysport are typically seen within two to five days and can last from three to six months. One of the advantages of Dysport is that the results appear faster than with BOTOX, so if you have limited time before an important event, Dysport is faster acting.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

To our current and prospective patients:

We are aware of the current activity of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19 in the region.

As always, safety and quality is paramount in our practice, as such we maintain rigorous cleansing actions to maintain an absolutely sterile environment. In addition to this we are closely following the Department of Health guidelines for prevention of the virus.

We are now seeing patients on a limited basis, based on urgency and need. We are prioritizing patients with active breast cancer and other medical issues that cannot wait. We are continuing to offer virtual consultation for those that request it.

Under strict sanitation protocols, we are continuing to operate our office, and office based surgical facility. We are welcoming all new and previous patients, provided you have no history of cough, fever, cold, or flu symptoms, or exposure to anyone with known COVID-19 in the past 2 weeks.

If you are feeling sick, you will need to call your primary doctor to see if testing in needed. We are performing procedures at the local hospital campuses on a limited basis. We do have the advantage of operating a Joint Commission accredited surgical facility within our practice, which we feel maximizes safety and limits exposure to infectious diseases such as COVID-19. We are continuing to perform elective surgery that is previously scheduled, on a case by case basis.

We will continue to keep you, our valued patients, updated on any changes.
