Our Pittsburgh Dysport treatments usually only takes 10-15 minutes and will last approximately 4 months. It can be a great non-surgical wrinkle treatment for those looking to replace an angry or tired appearance with a livelier and more energetic look!


What is Dysport®?

Dysport® temporarily evens out wrinkles and creases to create softer, younger-looking skin. Every time you make a facial expression (such as laughing, smiling or squinting) different areas of your face deepen into folds and creases. As we get older and lose our skin elasticity, those lines and wrinkles become more pronounced.

Dysport® is often injected into many of the same areas where Botox® Cosmetic is used, such as the forehead, crow’s feet, lines between eyebrows, frown lines, lines running alongside of nose, wrinkles above the lip and creases around the neck. Treatment only takes approximately 15 minutes, but the effects can last as long as 4 months. Dysport® offers a quick and easy non-surgical solution to address bothersome signs of aging. The following will give you some additional information on Dysport®. If you would like to schedule a consultation to talk about this procedure, please contact Sistine Facial Plastic Surgery.

What other conditions is Dysport® used for?

  • Dysport® is FDA approved for the treatment of migraine headaches
  • Dysport® can reduce overactive sweat glands in patients with hyperhidrosis
  • Dysport® can be injected into the masseter muscle to slim the appearance of the face and improve the look of the cheeks and jaw
  • Dysport® can be injected into the muscles of the upper lip to reduce the elevation that causes a “gummy smile”

I have been going to Dr. Leong for Dysport injections for over a year and I can’t recommend him enough. I was developing heavy frown lines and thanks to him they are completely gone. Dr. Leong is just great all around. Knowledgable, happy to educate or reassure, gives no pressure on anything. His main concern is definitely the patient and what is best for them.

Review from RateMds.com

The history of Dysport®

Dysport® was originally created as a treatment for disorders involving involuntary movement (i.e. cervical dystonia and blepharospasm) and later for cosmetic purposes (once doctors recognized its ability to smooth out creases in the skin). In the United States, it has been used as an aesthetic enhancement since 2009 and is now used in 57 countries. Dysport® was approved for use in Europe for many years prior to its approval in the United States. A study in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery revealed that 87% of patients who received Dysport® injections noticed a decrease in their wrinkles.

How does Dysport® work?

Dysport® works much in the same that BOTOX® Cosmetic works. Both agents are neurotoxins (a form of botulinum toxin type A) that restrict movement in the muscles. When muscles are softened and relaxed, the skin is able to smooth out, eliminating lines and wrinkles. After treatment, most patients are able to see a difference within 48-72 hours, but it takes approximately 2 weeks to see the true result.

Paul Leong MD FACS

The Facial Specialist

Dr. Leong completed his medical degree at the Yale University School of Medicine. He then dedicated the next seven years honing his skills specifically in head, face, and neck surgery at the University of Pittsburgh—a university consistently ranked among the top five otolaryngology programs in the country. Dr. Leong continued to develop his surgical skills through a fellowship in Advanced Oncologic Surgery of the Head and Neck at the Pittsburgh Medical Center. This was followed by yet another fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Oregon Health Sciences University.

What is the cost of Dysport® Injections in Pittsburgh?

The price of Dysport® typically varies due to the injector’s skill level as well as their geographic location. The cost of Dysport® is generally calculated one of two ways: by the unit or per area. The three most common areas to get Dysport® injected into are the glabella, crow’s feet, and forehead.

The cost of Dysport® in Pittsburgh ranges from $300-$600 with the average being $450 for each area injected. The cost of Dysport® with Dr. Leong is priced by the area: $350 for the first area, $300 for the second area, and $225 for the third area. Dr. Leong also extends a discount for returning Dysport® patients that get treated recurrently.
