First Time Trying Dysport

I just turned 30 last month and I’ve had some small lines on my forehead that have been bothering me for a year or two now. I decided to go in to the Corpus Christi Institute of Cosmetic and Plastic surgery office for a consultation with Dr. Vijay. After speaking with the doctor about my problem areas and being evaluated, Dr. Vijay recommended 20 units of. Dysport in my forehead and glabella. He explained that Dysport can last longer than Botox and take effect sooner (full results within about one week). I was so excited that we were able to get started right away. I lightly numbed my forehead with an icepack for a few minutes before. Dr. Vijay was precise yet quick and with just 7 injection points he was done. The pain was very very low and immediately subsided after the needle was out. it really was no big deal at all!

The before photo on the left shows noticeable lines all across my forehead when I raise my eyebrows. The after photo on the right was taken one week later. I am still able to raise my eyebrows but the difference in wrinkles (or lack there of) is amazing! I am loving this smooth appearance!! Both photos were taken bare-faced with no foundation of any kind.
The before photo on the left was my frown face pre-Dysport. The after photo on the right was taken one week later. There are no longer any wrinkles in the area between my eyebrows. The red dots you may notice are old acne scars.
The before photo is on top. The after photo on bottom was taken one week later. The fine lines in the middle of my forehead are no longer visible and my entire forehead looks much smoother! Yay! Both photos were taken without foundation.

My entire experience with Dr. Vijay’s office was very pleasant. He explained everything to me throughly and answered all of my questions. I am extremely happy with the results and will go back for more Dysport in 3 months. He told me after the first window, the treatments will begin to last longer and I can go more months in between. I am going to see the esthetician Angelica this week to discuss my old acne scars and possibly get some type of microdermabrasion based on her recommendations. I will fill you in on that whole process as well! I am very glad I was able to get Dysport because my skin look so much better now, and it will help to prevent future wrinkles!!
