As the first FDA-approved alternative filler to BOTOX®, Dysport is a highly effective injectable used to treat moderate to severe frown lines found in between the eyebrows. Since these lines and winkles are caused by muscle activity, Houston cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Sumpter, uses Dysport to control this activity. Dysport is injected into these muscles in order to diminish the lines and wrinkles to produce a smoother appearance. While it may take between 3 and 7 days to see the full effects, skin can be improved for up to 4 months with Dysport.
"I could not have imagined a better experience. The doctor was extremely upfront and detailed about the pricing as well as what to expect during the procedure. She even suggested we go a cheaper route on my mother in laws Botox which was refreshing to say the least not to feel like you're being up sold instead of genuinely counseled. My pain tolerance level is lower than low and she went to every length possible to make me comfortable all while being very friendly and reassuring. My results for lip injections were absolutely fantastic. My entire family now wants to make an appointment here to have theirs done! I will be back for all of my cosmetic needs and so will all my family."- C.S. / Yelp / May 27, 2016
"I am turning 65 Aug 16th 2017. Also, I live in Florida now. Everyone I meet comments on on, "not ;ooking my age"! Dr Sumpter not only is responsible for ALL my compliments but was so fun to work with. Making the decision as a man to have cosmetic work done was made so much easier by Dr Sumpters laid back, of course we can do it, attitude. Dr Sumpter is not just a cosmetic surgeon, she is a true artist with compassion and desire to help. I came to truly love Dr Sumpter and her husband, Tim."- M. / Healthgrades / Jul 29, 2017
"In a nutshell, Dr. Sumpter's skill and bedside manner put together make her the perfect plastic surgeon. I trust her like family because of how real she is. She has never told me I "need" to have anything done and has always been honest with me about what she feels I need to stay away from. She has done my botox and Juvederm injections in addition to my permanent lip implants which I could not be happier with! Also, the entire staff is not only professional and kind but also really funny!"- C.S. / Healthgrades / Jun 27, 2017
"Dr. Sumpter is the BEST choice for ANY procedure! - I will start off with a disclaimer that I am the world's worst patient. I have a panic/anxiety disorder that causes panic attacks often unwarranted so you can imagine when needles are involved how frantic it becomes. Dr. Kristi Sumpter from day 1 consultation about Juvederm injections to the day of surgery for permanent lip implants was sensitive to my anxiety and single-handedly comforted and..."- C. / RealSelf / Jun 26, 2017

What to Expect
Dysport is administered during an in-office appointment that generally lasts about 30 minutes to an hour. The medication is injected through a small needle to identified areas on the face that are marked with ink prior to injection. To help control discomfort, a numbing anesthetic may be applied and cold compresses are used to help control bruising and swelling. The amount of medicine injected varies by patient as some individuals will have deeper, broader wrinkles while others will only have fine lines to address.
After treatment, there will be some mild redness and swelling, but this goes away within a couple of hours. Another difference between BOTOX and Dysport, is that the results from a Dysport injection has shown to take effect a day or two sooner. In addition, some say it lasts just a bit longer and diffuses further from the injection site.
The cost for a Dysport treatment session varies by patient depending on how many syringes of the product are needed to attain the desired results. The cost for one full syringe usually averages about $250 -$400. Some patients will require several syringes, while others may only need a single syringe.
