Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Reuel Aspacio offers both men and women numerous nonsurgical alternatives for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable treatment that works similarly to BOTOX to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are created by repetitive facial movements and expressions (like frowning, smiling, and laughing) that eventually make the facial muscles tight. This causes the overlying skin to have an etched line that is visible even when your face is relaxed. Dysport is specifically formulated to treat one of the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows.
Dysport is an FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. After your appointment, you will notice the facial muscles gradually relaxing over the next few days as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles diminish. Learn more about Dysport wrinkle relaxer treatments at Summerlin Dermatology in Las Vegas, NV to help you look more refreshed.
Dysport is ideal if you are looking for a nonsurgical treatment to correct moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by repetitive use, they can develop at any age and make you look sad, tired, or mad. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that smoothes dynamic wrinkles without giving you a "frozen" face. Since Dysport spreads to treat a cluster of wrinkles, it is also ideal for Crow's feet, the fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes. Most patients at Summerlin Dermatology see visible improvements a few days after their treatment that typically last up to four months.
Here are some of the areas we can improve with Dysport:
- Forehead wrinkles: Small amounts are injected into the forehead muscle to soften horizontal forehead lines
- Crow’s feet: Wrinkles around the eyes that are accentuated by smiling and squinting
- Lateral eyebrows: Injections near the side of the eyebrows can keep eyebrows elevated and give a pleasing position to the eyebrow and a more open appearance
- Bunny lines: Wrinkles along the sides of the nose that appear when you crinkle your nose
- Gummy smile: A smile that is too "toothy" in which a person’s upper gum appears
- Downturned mouth: Small amounts of Dysport can help to correct downturned corners of the mouth
- Pebbled chin: A wrinkly or pebbled chin with changes sometimes referred to as "orange skin"

"Before beginning this review, I took time to read several of the reviews posted. A very mixed bag of issues and emotions. Well, here is why I gave this group of working professionals a "5 STAR" rating. I was referred to Summerlin Dermatology by my so called medical PCP. I had concern about a mole like growth on my back which appeared to be getting larger. I was concerned it could be cancerous. I received a call from Summerlin Dermatology on 9/26/2018 regarding this referral. It seemed they had a cancellation for that day and asked if this was convenient for me. Yep. Sure was. However, I told the young lady on the phone, Daisy, I didn't want to sit there filling out new patient paperwork. She explained their website with the on-line forms was down at the time and offered to email me the forms to complete before I arrived. She was so upbeat and professional. When I arrived for my appointment (with my completed paperwork) I was greeted by, not one, but two front office staffers, Jose and Desiree. They were professional with a smile. Again, upbeat. I signed in and waited about 10-15 minutes before I was taken into the examining room. During my wait time I had the opportunity to chat with each of these individuals. Very professional, yet not "starchy" if you know what I mean. Real people with a job to do the best they can. I met with Dr. Aspacio and his assistant. I felt at ease with both. I told the doctor why I was there. Doctor Aspacio examined the mole growth. Then asked me for my cell phone. He took a picture of this mole on my back. It was not easy for me to see since it was on my back. He showed me the picture and explained that it was typical of getting older. Such moles are common at "our age". I laughed. He even showed me a couple of areas where he has developed similar moles. He made me feel at ease. I was sooo relieved. I have lived in Las Vegas for 43 years. I am 67 years old with Medicare insurance. If you want to experience REALLY BAD medical treatment just wait until you become a senior and on Medicare! I thank heaven that Summerlin Dermatology was an outside referral and NOT part of my primary care network!! I haven't seen my PCP in 2 years! All I see are PAC's or a Nurse Practitioner! Summerlin Dermatology, in my experience/opinion, is only 1 of 3 local medical facilities with whom I would consider professional, to the point and personable. I would recommend them highly!!!"- L.H. / Yelp / Sep 27, 2018
"Very knowledgeable professional and detailed. The staff is very attentive and the doctor was incredibly informative taking the time to make sure I understood the procedure. When the results came in he recommended a plastic surgeon to do the surgery. I really felt very confident in the diagnosis and appreciated everyone's help."- S.S. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
Dysport injections are performed in one of our treatment rooms after your consultation with Dr. Aspacio, taking about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually not needed since the injections are made with a fine-gauge needle that causes minimal discomfort, but it can be requested. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and five carefully placed injections of Dysport will be administered along the brow, followed by a cold compress to minimize swelling and bruising. After your treatment at Summerlin Dermatology, you are free to resume normal tasks, but you should try to avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect
After a Dysport treatment, you may have mild swelling and redness around the injection sites, but this should dissipate on its own in a few days. You should sleep upright the night of your appointment and continue to use a cold compress as needed. Results are usually seen within a few days as the visibility of your frown lines is reduced for a smoother, softer appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months and follow-up treatments can be performed at Summerlin Dermatology to maintain your results.
