dysport_picLaser of Alabama is introducing Dysport, an affordable new product that is proven  to diminish signs of aging on the face such as:

  • furrows
  • crow’s feet, and
  • laugh lines


Dysport can effectively diminish crow’s feet, laugh and frown lines, and other dynamic wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions. With continued use, it can even completely eliminate some fine lines and wrinkles.

Dysport is injected into facial muscles around the eyes, across the forehead, around the mouth and along the neck. When these facial muscles contract, the skin wrinkles. Over time, these wrinkles become deeper and more permanent. Dysport paralyzes these muscles allowing the skin to lay flat for an extended period of time which effectively reduces lines and wrinkles.

Dysport is made from a purified form of protein made from botulism bacteria called, botulinum A toxin. Injections are safe, reliable and repeatable.

Not all Dysport treatments are the same. Your results are absolutely dependent on the skill of the doctor administering your injections.

At our state-of-the-art facilities in Birmingham, Dysport injections are administered by award winning, fellowship-trained and board certified Dermatologist, Sarah Sawyer, M.D. Dr. Sawyer is considered one of Alabama’s leading experts in Cosmetic Dermatology.

Your treatment will begin with a gentle cleansing of the skin followed by the application of a topical anesthetic for your comfort during the procedure.

Treatments take as little as 10 minutes so you can schedule a lunch time appointment, include an appointment while you’re out running errands, or stop by for an appointment on your way home from work.

Because Dr. Sawyer is a Dermatologist, she can also help you with all of your skin care needs and may suggest additional treatments to address your current skin care issues or to help prevent skin damage.

Dysport Recovery

Because injections are so simple and easy, returning to work or normal social activities is no problem immediately following treatment. You should keep your head elevated for at least 4 hours after the treatment and avoid rubbing or touching the treatment area. Rarely, slight bruising or swelling may appear at the injection site and ice will reduce this affect.

Your results will usually be visible within 3 to 5 days of treatment and results can last up to 3 months. If regular treatments are continued, your results may tend to last longer between treatments.
