Anytime you laugh, frown, concentrate hard, or squint due to the blinding, bright sun, your facial muscles contract. Over time, these contractions create creases and lines which become etched into your face, making you look older than you are. Fortunately, there are several treatments that can help you reduce the appearance of wrinkles formed by these facial muscle contractions.
While BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular injectable option used to improve the appearance of these wrinkles, it isn’t your only option. At Rejuvalife Vitality Institute, we offer alternatives to BOTOX® Cosmetic such as Dysport® which can achieve equally dramatic results and help you look as young as you feel.
The best way to determine whether Dysport is the right facial rejuvenation option for you is to speak with Dr. Andre Berger in person. Please call 310.856.9173 today to schedule a consultation at our Beverly Hills office.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable used to treat specific wrinkle-causing muscles in the face in order to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and restore a more youthful look. It is derived from the same substance as BOTOX® Cosmetic, but it has a different formulation.
Dr. Berger injects small amounts of Dysport directly into the facial muscles which are causing the formation of your wrinkles. These painless injections will block the nerve impulses which cause the muscle contractions responsible for wrinkle formation. As your treatment takes effect, you will experience an improvement in the appearance of these wrinkles.
Dysport is most effective at treating:
- Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
Your results should last approximately 12-16 weeks. In order to maintain longer lasting results, you’ll need to return to our office for additional Dysport treatments with Dr. Berger.
Keep in mind that Dysport is only intended to improve the appearance of wrinkles that are caused by facial muscle contractions. If you would like to improve the appearance of wrinkles caused by aging or collagen depletion, Dr. Berger may recommend a dermal filler to achieve your desired results.
Benefits of Dysport
Dysport offers you the following benefits compared with BOTOX® Cosmetic:
- Wider area of effect, which allows for wider spaces between the injection sites
- Works faster than BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Can last longer than BOTOX® Cosmetic

Other Techniques Using Dysport
Dermafirm is a Dysport-based neck and facelift solution. Dr. Berger uses Dysport in micro-dilutions for dermal enhancements and skin tightening with no loss of mimetic motion or expression. Dermafirm produces tighter, firmer skin in the cheeks, face and neck. It is combined with traditional dermal fillers, skin care solutions, and standard Dysport to produce a more youthful look to your face.
Dysport brow lift is a non-surgical brow and forehead lift alternative. This technique can shape and lift the eyebrow area, correct minor brow ptosis, as well as reducing or eliminating forehead lines, frown or sad lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, and more.
Both of these procedures are performed without downtime or the risks and side effects associated with surgery.
