What is Dysport?
Dr. Ben Schultz, ABPS Certified, offers women and men numerous nonsurgical options for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that works similarly to BOTOX® to soften and reduce dynamic lines and wrinkles throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repeated facial movements and expressions (like smiling, laughing, and frowning) that, over time, make the muscles of the face tight. This causes the skin over the muscle to have an etched line that can be seen even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specially created to address one of the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows. Dr. Ben Schultz prefers Dysport for its long duration (up to 4 months) and faster onset (just under a week!). It temporarily blocks signals to the muscle — so the dynamic wrinkle is smoother, but with natural-looking results that don't "freeze" your face. All of Dr. Ben Schultz's patients will receive indivisualized treatments based on their specific anatomy and meds.

Who is a Candidate for Dysport?

"How do I even begin to say how wonderful Dr. Ben Schultz is … he is simply the best physician/surgeon I’ve ever encountered! He is extremely knowledgeable, cares deeply about his patients, and has an impeccable bedside manner! He provided excellent care before, during, and after my nasal surgery. He is very attentive and always answered all of my questions. I know he has several patients, but he made me feel like I was his only one! I had a few complications after the surgery and he was very accommodating and understanding. It's rare to find a physician so caring and concerned about my health!"- K.W. / Google / Jun 02, 2023
"Right from the beginning I knew I would be in good hands with Dr. Ben. I was really nervous about my surgery but he put my mind at ease. From initially meeting him he was friendly, compassionate and easy to talk to. He was very thorough and answered any concerns I had. You can tell he truly cares for his patients. He would always check up on me to see how I was doing and was available when I needed him. I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for me. Dr.Ben is truly an amazing surgeon!"- E.H. / Google / Apr 17, 2023
"Wow...where should I start??!! I was diagnosed with breast cancer July of 2022. My GYN referred me to Drs. Ben and Michael Schultz (I will leave a separate review for Dr. Michael). From the time of my first consultation until today, Dr. Ben has been a God send. He is meticulous, and set realistic expectations. He texted me daily after my surgery to ensure I was feeling ok and healing properly. He did an amazing job on my reconstruction. EVERY doctor and staff person that has seen my results say, "Wow, your surgeon did an amazing job!" I usually question EVERYTHING I am told. However, he provided information in a way that was clear and concise. and.... best of all... his work proved exactly what he said he was going to do. Thanks Dr. Ben! ~Chevel God Speed!"- C.V. / Google / Apr 07, 2023
"Dr. Ben is amazing at what he does. And, amazingly, he gets back to me immediately with every question and concern. He always has a smile on his face to put you at ease. He and his father are the kindest doctors I’ve ever dealt with."- R.L. / Google / Mar 24, 2023
"Dr Ben, I can’t even put in words how appreciative I am of this man. I’ve been wanting a reduction for over 8 years now, I was at the point where the size literally weighed me down. He sympathized with me so much immediately and set himself apart from other surgeons I’ve met with by not downplaying my pain. I was so nervous about my surgery but he reassured me at every single step, he gave me his personal number for any post op questions which made me feel even better about choosing him. Every time I had a question, I waited no more than 30 mins for a response which was surprising given the amount of patients I’ve met at his practice. As a black woman, anything dealing with medical professionals is scary but Dr. Ben is the best I’ve ever interacted with. He restored my confidence in my body, went from a 36H to about a D cup. I have had absolutely no complications with my surgery, I felt like I was back to myself about 3-4 weeks post op. Thank you so much Dr. Ben! May God bless you infinitely"- M.M. / Google / Mar 18, 2023
How Do Dysport Injections Work?
Dysport injections are performed in one of our treatment rooms after your consultation with Dr. Schultz, taking about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream can be requested for application prior to injection; however, Dr. Ben Schultz uses a special distraction device that allows for a near-painless experience. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed, and five well-placed injections will be administered along the brow, followed by a cold compress to minimize bruising and swelling. Following your procedure with Dr. Ben Schultz, you may resume normal tasks, but you should avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours.
How much does Dysport cost?
The price depends on how much Dysport is required to attain your desired results. In your initial consultation, you will receive a personalized Dysport treatment plan and then offer a cost estimate. Ask if we have any specials on Dysport at Dr. Ben Schultz and which payment methods we take.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are injections that treat dynamic facial wrinkles. Results from Dysport generally become visible faster than BOTOX. Additionally, Dysport results tend to last longer compared to other wrinkle relaxers, and it has a better spread. During your consultation, your injector will help you decide if BOTOX or Dysport is better for your needs and goals.
Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Many patients don't know the different uses for injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport and fillers. A wrinkle relaxer corrects dynamic wrinkles, whereas a dermal filler treats static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are created by repetitive movements, for example, smiling, laughing, frowning, and other expressions. Dysport relaxes the creased muscle under the skin to smooth the dynamic wrinkle. Static lines are the result of low skin elasticity, so a dermal filler plumps the area — so it looks even. In your consultation, your injector will listen to your goals to help you decide whether a wrinkle relaxer, a filler, or both will deliver your desired outcome.
Can Dysport be combined with other treatments?
At Ben Schultz, M.D., we offer a number of aesthetic treatments that can be added to complement your Dysport results. Based on your needs and goals, your custom plan might include Dysport injections for dynamic wrinkles, a filler for static wrinkles or volume in your cheeks and lips, as well as a skin treatment. Be honest during your consultation so we can create a plan that will deliver an outcome that leaves you thrilled.
How often should I get Dysport injections?
The results of Dysport may be visible for up to four months. In your consultation, your injector will recommend how often you should return to our office in Baltimore, MD, to sustain your results. You may get treatments more often or further apart after you know how Dysport works on your wrinkles.
