Dysport Frequently Asked Questions
Board-certified physician Dr. Ian Levenson offers men and women in Greenwood Village, CO several nonsurgical alternatives for rejuvenating the skin. Dysport is an injectable treatment that acts like BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are created by repetitive facial expressions and movements (like laughing, smiling, and frowning) that eventually make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the skin over the muscle to have an etched line that can be seen even when the face is resting. Dysport is specifically formulated to treat the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows. It temporarily relaxes the treated muscle so the skin is smooth but with natural-looking results that don't "freeze" your face. Learn more about Dysport injectable treatments at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity that can make your face look smooth and refreshed.
Dysport Procedure Technique
Dysport is a good choice if you want a nonsurgical treatment to correct mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Because dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by repetitive use, they may become visible in younger patients and make you appear mad, tired, or sad. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that smoothes 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 Colorado Center for Health and Longevity notice visible improvements 1 – 3 days following their treatment that may remain for as long as four months.

"Simply put Dr. Levenson is the BEST! His over the top knowledge when it comes to medicine and diagnosing an illness is second to none. His availability is second to none and his ability to prescribe a solution to an illness is second to none. He has helped heal ALL four of my kids, my wife and myself more than once. Just last week I was struck with a case of vertigo in the middle of a parking lot. I had no idea what had hit me. I called Doc L and within in two rings he picked up. Over the phone, yes over the phone he accurately diagnosed the problem, and had me go to hospital where the ER Doc came to same conclusion Doc L came to over the phone. He truly saved my life. His physicals are in depth, giving us the confidence to keep on living actively. There is no one better than Doc Levenson when it comes to taking care of the health of my family and me!"- T.M. / Google / Sep 18, 2019

"Dr. Levenson is so amazing! He does my Botox, filler, oh shot, and prescribed me my skin routine. Can I just tell you this man transformed my life! Lol. In 2011 I had broken my upper jaw that forced my teeth back (I know horrific) and as a result my top lip lost a lot of volume. When I finally got the courage to do filler..(I was scared because I didn’t want to look fake) Dr. Levinson WOULD NEVER make anyone look over done. I feel like I got my beauty back after feeling very insecure from the trauma I experienced from my accident. As far as the oh shot, can I just say... I have spent YEARS in bladder pain. Chronic, constant bladder pain. I got so used to it... I didn’t know what it felt like to not have my bladder “on” 24/7. That’s not an exaggeration. I told Dr. L this and he said let’s try the oh shot for you to help regenerate that tissue around the urethra. Well can I tell you after YEARS of dealing with this I have had such an amazing reduction that I can enjoy normal activities like the gym, the movies, meditation class. All those things suffered because my life revolves around trickling urine. I don’t have leakage anymore, I don’t get up constantly in the night. I used to get up to use the restroom 3-5 times a night. It WAS AWFUL. I feel like a normal human being again!!!!!!! Oh, also I used to have horrible acne in my teens and 20s and now at 33 I feel and look healthier & younger than I did then!!!!"- J.C. / Google / Jul 21, 2019

Dysport Relax and Refresh
Injections of Dysport are performed in one of our treatment rooms following your consultation with Dr. Levenson, lasting around 15 – 30 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is generally unnecessary because the Dysport is injected using a fine needle that creates minimal pain, but it may be applied if requested. Following your treatment at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity, you are free to perform normal tasks, but you should avoid taxing activities for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect with Dysport®
Following a Dysport session, you may have light redness and swelling around the injected area, but this should dissipate on its own within 1 – 3 days. You should sleep propped up the night of your appointment and may want to apply cold compresses if needed. Improvements are usually noticeable in 1 – 3 days as the visibility of your frown lines is reduced for a softer, smoother appearance. Your results should remain for around 3 – 4 months and follow-up injections may be performed at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity in Greenwood Village to extend your results.
Dysport Ideal Candidates
How much does Dysport cost?
The cost depends on the number of Dysport injections needed to attain your desired results. During your consult, Dr. Levenson will discuss your estimated costs and go over all your payment options.
Should I get Dysport or BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are safe and effective to treat facial wrinkles and both are widely available. A skilled practitioner like Dr. Levenson can tell which medication may offer the best benefit based on your goals. The results of a Dysport injection typically become visible faster, last a bit longer, and spread to a larger coverage area compared to BOTOX.
Should I get Dysport or a dermal 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 as a “liquid facelift” and provides outstanding results for individuals who do not want surgery.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
Many patients elect to combine Dysport with a dermal filler for a "liquid facelift" or along with another facial treatment. During your consultation, tell Dr. Levenson about all your concerns so he can develop a comprehensive treatment plan that achieves all your cosmetic goals.
How often should I get Dysport treatments?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3 – 4 months after treatment. However, this varies in every patient depending on their goals. Dr. Levenson will talk to you about when to schedule your next appointment when he develops your custom Dysport treatment plan.
If you want a nonsurgical way to rejuvenate your appearance by smoothing dynamic wrinkles, Dysport is a wonderful treatment. You will be able to discuss Dysport injections and other procedures at your consultation with Dr. Ian Levenson to develop your custom anti-aging plan that meets your goals. We encourage you to contact The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity in Greenwood Village to find out more about Dysport and schedule a consultation.
