Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul S. Gill and board-certified dermatologist Dr. Anita A. Gill offer The Woodlands, TX patients several nonsurgical options for rejuvenating the skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that acts like BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by reiterated facial expressions and movements (like frowning, laughing, and smiling) that over several decades make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a grooved line that can be seen even when the face is resting. Dysport is specially created to correct the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. It temporarily blocks signals to the treated muscle so the line is smooth but with natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen. Hear more about Dysport injectable wrinkle relaxers at The Gill Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology to make your face appear more youthful.
Dysport is a good choice if you want a nonsurgical option to improve mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Because dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by chronic use, they may become visible in younger patients and make you appear sad, mad, or tired. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without leaving a "frozen" appearance. Since Dysport's formula expands to reach a group of wrinkles, it's also great for Crow's feet, the small wrinkles in the corners of the eyes. Many patients at The Gill Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology notice visible improvements in their appearance 1 – 3 days following their procedure that usually remain for as long as four months.
"My experiences with Dr. Paul Gill and his staff have been nothing short of fantastic! When choosing a plastic surgeon, you can be easily overwhelmed, but Dr. Gill and his staff immediately put me at ease and just after the first appointment, I knew he was the one I would be using for my procedure! He is super sweet, explains everything in detail, and he is always present for followups. His nurses are extremely helpful and the office staff are always so pleasant. I am absolutely in LOVE with my results as well!!!! I highly recommend!"- L.M. / Google / Feb 06, 2019
"I cannot even begin to explain how great my experience has been with Dr. Gill and his staff.

I am absolutely thrilled with my results! Thank you isn't enough! Y'all are the BEST!"- K.I. / Google / Jan 31, 2019
"I highly recommend Dr. Gill!Dr. Gill and his staff are very professional and they make you feel at home. The quality of care they provide is really top notch. I had never had surgery before or been under anesthesia but they made me feel at ease. I am still blown away by my results and what Dr. Gill was able to accomplish with my breast lift and implants; plastic surgery really is an art that he has mastered. I'm still in disbelief when I look in the mirror. I was recommended to Dr. Gill by two friends of mine who were also very pleased with their results. I'm so glad I pulled the trigger and finally did it! I feel more confident and I'm excited to wear clothes that I would not have felt comfortable in before. I will continue to go to The Gill Center for any plastic surgery or dermatology procedures."- J.B. / Google / Jan 31, 2019
"Dr. Gill is nothing shy of amazing! His bedside manners are everything and so is his staff! Dr. Gill took time to answer my questions and describe a plan of action that would work best for me. His craft and skill are remarkable and I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of undergoing a cosmetic procedure. I came in looking like a telly tubby and left out looking like an Instagram model. I can't wait to show off my new, non-visible tummy! Oh and did I mention that Dr. Gill is easy on the eye! Now he's married but it sure doesn't hurt to have a surgeon that's highly skilled and easy to look at :-)."- K.P. / Google / Jan 30, 2019

Injections of Dysport are administered in one of our private treatment rooms following your consultation. This can last around 15 – 30 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is generally unnecessary because the Dysport is injected using a fine needle that creates little pain, but it may be applied if requested. The treatment area will be cleaned and then several well-placed injections will be made across the eyebrows, followed with a cold compress to lessen bruising and swelling. Following your injections at The Gill Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology, you can perform regular tasks, but you should avoid taxing activities for at least one day. Topical lidocaine or an ice pack may be applied to the treatment site to increase your comfort.
What to Expect
Following a Dysport session, you may see light redness and a swelling at and around the injected area, but this generally will disappear within 1 – 3 days. You should sleep propped up for at least one night and may want to apply cold compresses if needed. Improvements are commonly noticeable in 1 –3 days as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a softer, smoother appearance. Your results should remain for around 3 – 4 months and more injections may be done at The Gill Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology in The Woodlands, TX to extend your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on the number of Dysport injections needed to obtain your desired results. During your consult, Dr. Gill or a member of the team, can discuss your estimated costs and go over all your payment options.
Dysport or BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are safe and effective to treat facial wrinkles, and both are widely available. A skilled practitioner can tell which medication may offer the best benefit. The results of a Dysport injection typically becomes visible faster than BOTOX, lasts a bit longer, and spreads to a larger coverage area.
Dysport or Filler?
Patients seeking to rejuvenate their facial appearance may look into injectable fillers, as well as products, such as Dysport, to attain results. Both skin treatments work to decrease facial wrinkles but use varying approaches. Injectable fillers add volume to certain facial structures, which creates a smooth result on the surface. It is common today to combine products, such as Dysport and BOTOX, with an injectable filler. This has been labeled a “liquid facelift” and provides outstanding results for individuals who do not want surgery.
Can it be combined with other treatments?
Yes. Many patients elect to combine Dysport with their surgical facelift, or skin resurfacing treatment for even more dramatic results. Dr. Gill can discuss your cosmetic goals during your consult and let you know which procedures can be incorporated with Dysport.
How often for treatment?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3 – 4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
