Dysport Frequently Asked Questions
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Bensimon offers Portland, OR men and women numerous nonsurgical alternatives for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable treatment that works similarly to BOTOX to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are created by repetitive facial movements and expressions (such as frowning or squinting) that eventually make the facial muscles tight. This causes the overlying skin to have an etched line that is visible, even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specifically formulated to treat one of the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows. It is also used to treat wrinkles on the forehead and Crow's feet. It temporarily relaxes the muscle so the skin is smoother but with natural-looking results that don't "freeze" your face. Learn more about Dysport wrinkle relaxer treatments at Bensimon Center to help you look more refreshed.
Dysport Procedure Technique
Dysport is ideal if you are looking for a nonsurgical treatment to correct moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by repetitive use, they can develop at any age and make you look sad, tired, or mad. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that smoothes dynamic wrinkles without giving you a "frozen" face. Since Dysport spreads to treat a cluster of wrinkles, it is also ideal for Crow's feet, the fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes. Most Portland area patients that have Dysport treatments at the Bensimon Center see visible improvements a few days after their treatment that typically last up to four months.
"This center is very nice and the staff extremely good , a few years ago I heard about the Bensimon Center after searching cosmetic fillers on sale on the internet and the Bensimon Center was having a half price deal on all their fillers, I went in and got a beautiful job done on my lips , cheeks and chin area , I hope they have another 50% off sale , I would jump to go again and get my face serviced again. I love how beautiful and natural I looked , the results are addicting!"- H.H. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2019
"How unusual to find professionals that are as considerate and as gracious as they are wonderful at what they do. I had researched The Bensimon Center and learned that Dr. Bensimon has an international reputation, that he mentors and teaches in this country and throughout the world. I knew several people who were clients of Dr. Bensimon and Andrea Stapleton and received nothing but raves about their skills. So, I expected to be satisfied by their technical ability and pleased with the result. Nevertheless, entering my first appointment I was pretty apprehensive about getting any cosmetic work done, at all. I should not have been. Over the several years that I have worked with them, Dr. Bensimon and Andrea Stapleton have been thoughtful, have taken the time to educate me about what they were advising, and why, and have offered complete and accurate appraisals of what I should expect. I don't like going to doctor's offices but have to say that visiting the Bensimon Center is great... so is how I look and feel when I come out."- J.W. / Google / Jan 18, 2020

"I've lived in five cities including NYC and have had a long life of experiences and I can say with 100 percent conviction that you will never get a better more honest and thorough consultation and more professional care and procedure than with Dr Bensimon. I've had two procedures and he has literally changed the way I see my body and has returned my self esteem and confidence. What he recommended was not the most complicated or the most expensive option because he thought it was the right one for me instead. The results have been been even better than he predicted. His staff is helpful friendly and professional. If I moved back to NY I would fly back here for anything I needed done. You will literally be in the very best hands."- M.H. / Yelp / Dec 25, 2019
Dysport Relax and Refresh
Dysport injections are performed in one of our treatment rooms after your consultation with Dr. Bensimon, taking about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually not needed since the injections are made with a fine-gauge needle that causes minimal discomfort, but it can be requested. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and a specified number of carefully placed injections of Dysport will be administered followed by a gentle cold compress to minimize swelling and bruising. After your treatment at Bensimon Center, you are free to resume normal tasks, but you should try to avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect with Dysport®
After a Dysport treatment, you may have mild swelling and redness around the injection sites, but this should dissipate on its own in a few days. You should sleep upright the night of your appointment and continue to use a cold compress as needed. Results are usually seen within a few days as the visibility of your frown lines is reduced for a smoother, softer appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months and follow-up treatments can be performed at Bensimon Center in Portland, OR to maintain your results.
Dysport Ideal Candidates
How much does it cost?
Dysport is priced very similarly to BOTOX and will range, depending on how many units (or syringes) are needed to attain the right results. Most of our patients who visit us on a regular basis for their Dysport injections take advantage of reward points, which offers savings to Dysport patients.
Dysport or BOTOX?
BOTOX and Dysport are both highly effective wrinkle relaxer treatments that are safe and widely available. An experienced practitioner will be able to recommend the best treatment option, depending on your needs and the condition and makeup of your skin. While both Dysport and BOTOX have similar lasting outcomes, the results of a Dysport injection typically become visible within 2 - 3 days, which is faster than BOTOX. It is also known to spread further, which is helpful in areas with more lines.
Dysport or filler?
Both wrinkle relaxers and injectable fillers are skin treatments that work to soften and decrease facial lines and wrinkles but use varying approaches. While products, like Dysport, relax the underlying muscles to create a softer appearance, an injectable filler adds volume to certain facial features, which creates a smooth result on the surface. To avoid surgery or other invasive treatments for as long as possible, it is common today to combine skin rejuvenation treatments, such as Dysport and fillers, for an all-around liquid facelift. This offers outstanding results for those who do not want or need surgery.
How often for treatment?
Portland area men and women usually return to Dr. Bensimon about 3 – 4 months after treatment to receive their touch-up treatment. This varies by patient. Continuing to have injections means you will have results year-round, which is why our patients return on a regular basis.
