Dysport is an injectable wrinkle reducer similar to BOTOX that acts between the nerve muscle junction to cause temporary relaxation of overactive muscles in order to enhance the facial skin smoothness, reduce dynamic wrinkles, and in some cases reverse static lines. Our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Chiu, provides Dysport to his Pittsburgh, PA patients as a nonsurgical alternative to help reduce wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging. If patients are wishing to achieve a long-lasting solution to resolve their dynamic wrinkles, then they can schedule a consult at Today's Cosmetic Surgery in order to discuss all of the benefits of Dysport.
"I was very upset with my previous plastic surgeon in regards to his rude bed side manner. I googled plastic surgeons, and came across Dr. Chiu. It took sometime to get in there, though it's worth it. His wife works the front office, and she is a very nice woman. She'll remind you about your doctors visits and if you have any concerns or such. I have never seen a doctor like Dr Chiu, and I am saying that in a positive manner. I want to keep a youthful experience. The first visit with Dr. Chiu took around an hour long. I believe that Dr. Chiu wants to convey that he will make patients look natural. And that's how it should be. I really wish that I had went to him for my nose job, the pictures look incredible. I regularly get dysport, and then I started to see him for other procedures. First off his technique with botox/dysport is amazing. He uses ice in combination with the injections, so it really doesn't hurt. And I have to say, great job. After a few rounds of dysport, I was curious about having my lips done. The doctor was very happy to do them, I think this is one of his specialties. The injections did not hurt at all. He made them look so natural and sexy. The doctor even put filler in my upper chin, to face look symmetrical. 5 stars. I have a red scar on my back that we are working on, hoping that it blends in well. The only thing neg that I will say. I think the amount that I was quoted for the laser and what I paid were not the same. Though, it could have been my fault. Anyways, this doctor will give you the "natural" you..as it should be. The doctor has a wonderful bed side manner with such a sweet wife. I would tell all ladies...if you want to get your lips done, definitely see him. I would like to fix certain things that happens with prior procedures. Fillers/dysport are important to me and he is the guy plain and simple."- M.R. / Google / Nov 19, 2018
"Perfectionist, Natural, Conservative. - Dr. Chiu is a magician! He’s truly amazing. He’s a total perfectionist, always takes his time, listens to your concerns with a conservative approach & natural results. I’ve been elsewhere and will never trust anyone else with my face again. He specializes in the face not the whole body like so many others. Plus I love the fact that a medical doctor is doing the injections not just an “injector”. Highly recommend him in every way!"- F. / RealSelf / Mar 05, 2020
Dysport is a great wrinkle treatment for patients who have:
- Wrinkles around the corners of the eyes ("crow’s feet")
- Frown lines (1's, 11's, 111's)
- Smile lines
- Other dynamic wrinkles
- Static rhytids (lines at rest) that are not overly deep
- Temporary headaches to BOTOX
What to Expect
Dr. Chiu will perform the Dysport injection onsite in our Pittsburgh, PA office after the initial consult. The procedure is a safe, quick process that will involve inserting a tiny needle and depositing the Dysport in selected sites. The entire process should take only between 15-30 minutes to administer, and patients can return to their normal activities right after treatment, as long as strenuous exercise is avoided. Some minor swelling and redness is to be expected, but will subside very quickly.
Dysport is a fast-acting and far-reaching injectable wrinkle relaxer, making noticeable changes to the forehead frown and crow's feet lines. Results typically take a 3-10 days to appear, and vary per patient. Dysport can be combined with wrinkle fillers to produce more drastic changes and more long lasting results. In general, patients can expect their results to last for around 3 - 6 months before a follow-up injection is needed.
