Houston facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Russell Kridel is an expert in facial rejuvenation treatments, including non-invasive Dysport treatments. At FPSA, our physician designs and perform Dysport treatments tailored to the individual’s aesthetic goals. In the hands of this skilled specialist, Dysport can eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows and along the forehead, as well as crow’s feet, laugh lines and re-shape eyebrows to give patients a more vibrant and youthful look.
Dysport is also an FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer just like BOTOX®. The chemical formula is just slightly different. Also known as a neurotoxin (or neuromodulator), Dysport decreases the visual appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in areas on the face that show expression, such as the forehead, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet. Dr. Kridel also uses Dysport to shape eyebrows. It can also help relieve medical issues such as, excessive sweating and migraine headaches. Once injected, the medication causes the underlying muscles to relax with a localized reduction of the muscle activity in the injected area. The result creates a smoother surface and more youthful appearance.
What Sets Us Apart
At FPSA, your Dysport treatments are performed by board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Russell Kridel, or a registered nurse under the direct supervision of our surgeon. This provides patients with the peace of mind that they are in the hands of a physician who focuses solely on the face and neck and the procedure is done in the safety and comfort of a medical office environment. In addition, Dr. Kridel makes sure patients are comfortable and experience very little discomfort during their treatment session, so patients can be given numbing cream or a dental block if they desire. At FPSA, Dr. Kridel takes facial injections quite seriously and believe it is important for patients to have highly skilled and trained hands that can tailor injections to your specific needs with greater finesse, rather than a one size fits all approach at many medical spas.
Dysport is administered by Dr. Kridel during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 30-45 minutes. The depth, length, quantity, and location of wrinkles vary for each patient. Therefore, the injection treatment, including the dosage and injection location, is tailored specifically to your facial structure and aesthetic goals. Dr. Kridel will mark the specific areas on the face that are going to be treated with a washable marker. There is no downtime and patients can return home or to work after their appointment.

Dr.Kridel and his staff are the most amazing team out there. He performed my rhinoplasty and took care of each one of my concerns. As a senior in high school, I had no confidence when it came to my nose but after the surgery I look amazing and I’m actually more outgoing. I truly recommend him and his work. He is a very genuine person and cares for every patient. Honestly the best surgeon in Houston.

Dr. Delaney performed my otoplasty surgery and I’m so happy and thankful for my results! From my first consultation visit, Dr. Delany and his staff were very welcoming – I immediately felt comfortable and trusted his expertise and recommendation to book my surgery. Going into the surgery I was a bit nervous, but Dr. Delaney and his team made sure I was in good hands and put me at ease. He’s genuinely kind, friendly, professional and takes the time to explain the process and addresses any of my concerns. If you’re looking to have any facial procedures done, I highly recommend you check out the wonderful Dr. Delaney!

What To Expect
Immediately following a series of Dysport injections, there may be some mild swelling and redness at the injection site. This will subside a few hours after the procedure. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for a few hours. It typically takes 4-7 days for Dysport to take effect after treatment. Dysport typically acts faster than Botox because it generally spreads farther from the injection site. The result is wrinkles will cease to appear and skin appears smooth and soft.
Treatment costs vary for each patient depending on how much Dysport is used. For men, it may take a larger dose to achieve the desired effect. A treatment session typically takes 1-3 syringes, with costs ranging between $360-$800 per session.

Dysport or BOTOX?
Dysport and Botox can be used interchangeably. Both Dysport and Botox are FDA-approved, safe and effective for facial wrinkles, and are widely available. Dr. Kridel can discuss both options at your consultation.
Dysport or Filler?
Wrinkle relaxers, like Botox and Dysport, temporarily freeze the underlying muscle. They do not fill in any lines and are more effective at removing wrinkles in the upper third of the face. Conversely, injectable fillers such as, Restylane®, Juvederm® and Perlane®, are not wrinkle relaxers. Fillers help decrease wrinkles by adding volume to certain facial structures, which creates the appearance of smooth skin. Fillers are more effective in the bottom 2/3rds of the face. During your consultation, Dr. Kridel will do a thorough examination and discuss your aesthetic goals. he will design a treatment plan specific to your needs which may include wrinkle relaxers, wrinkle fillers or a combination of both.
Dysport is not a permanent fix. Results will last for three to six months – sometimes longer – but they will not last forever. To maintain the youthful effects, patients have repeat injections as soon as they see signs that frown lines or wrinkles are returning, normally about 2 to 3 times a year.
Is it Safe?
Dysport is approved by the FDA and has a long, safe history. Along with Botox, it is a very popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure. However, even with its popularity, Dysport is a drug and should only be administered by a qualified medical practitioner. Botox is not recommended for patients with some medical conditions. You should review these with the physician at the time of your consultation.
Botox is similar to Dysport and is also considered a wrinkle relaxer. Since the chemical balance is just slightly different between Dysport and Botox, patients can react differently. One may be more effective than another depending on the patient. Plus, patients can develop a tolerance to one specific brand over time and can switch to another neurotoxin brand option.
Men and women who wish to soften and decrease facial lines and wrinkles may be candidates for Dysport. The most common age to receive Dysport injections is between 34-55. However, many patients in their late twenties and early thirties, have Dysport injections at the early signs of aging to help timeshift the aging process. There are also a wide range of patients over the age of 55 who effectively use Dysport to reduce the signs of aging and better match their youthful spirit.
