Board-certified dermatologist Joseph P. Housel, M.D. offers Liverpool, NY patients several nonsurgical options for rejuvenating the skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that acts just like BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive facial expressions and movements (like laughing, frowning, and smiling) that over several decades make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a grooved line that can be seen even when the face is resting. Dysport is specially created to correct the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. It temporarily blocks signals to the treated muscle so the line smooths out and gives you natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen. Housel Dermatology, P.C. can tell you more about Dysport injectable wrinkle relaxer treatments to make your face look more youthful.
Dysport is a good choice if you want a nonsurgical option to improve mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Because dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by chronic use, they may become visible even in younger patients and make you appear mad, sad, or tired. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without leaving a "frozen" appearance. Since Dysport's formula expands beyond frown lines to reach a group of wrinkles, it's also great for Crow's feet, which are the small wrinkles in the corners of the eyes. Many patients at Housel Dermatology, P.C. notice visible improvements in their appearance 1 – 3 days following their procedure, and these improvements can remain for as long as four months.

"It’s a well run professional practice. I’ve been there several times and everyone there has been very helpful. I had my first appointment with Liz (a physician assistant) who did a very thorough job and removed several atypical moles. This is the place to go for any skin problems. The doctor and his staff have great reviews and there’s a reason for that. The office is beautiful and everyone working there seems happy."- D.T. / Yelp / Jul 30, 2020
"This office is beautiful. The staff is caring, efficient and first rate. I was calling in right away and Jennifer was great. After my visit, Kara, who is also great, told me to crack the door when I was dressed and ready to leave, as soon as that door was cracked she was there with my samples and my refills already called in to the pharmacy. This office is wonderful."- M.F. / Google / Jul 24, 2020
"Took my 92 year old mother to Housel Dermatology for a lesion on her face. It was biopsied and found to be skin cancer. She is now scheduled for surgery with Dr. Housel. Our experience with this office was excellent. The office staff, nurse and Elizabeth were wonderful. They were kind and put my Mom at ease from the moment they met her. I expect her surgical procedure to be done with expertise by Dr. Housel as I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about his skills."- C.P. / Google / Jul 24, 2020
"Dr. Housel removed a basal cell on my leg. I have never in my life of 86 years experienced such a caring doctor and his staff. He talks to you and treats you like a human being. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Definitely a top rate doctor."- M.A. / Healthgrades / Jun 24, 2020
Injections of Dysport are administered in one of our private treatment rooms following your consultation with Dr. Housel and last around 15 – 30 minutes. Dysport is injected using a fine needle and creates little pain making local anesthetic or numbing cream generally unnecessary, though it may be applied if requested. The treatment area will be cleaned and five well-placed injections will be done across the eyebrows. Once the injections are complete, a cold compress will be applied to lessen bruising and swelling. Following your injections at Housel Dermatology, P.C., you can go back to your regular tasks, but you should avoid taxing activities for at least one day.
What to Expect
Following a Dysport session, you may see light redness and swelling at and around the injected area, but this generally will disappear within 1 – 3 days. You should sleep propped up for at least one night and may want to apply cold compresses. Improvements are commonly noticeable in 1 – 3 days as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a softer, smoother appearance. Your results should last for around 3 – 4 months. More injections may be done at Housel Dermatology, P.C. to extend your results.
