Dysport is a drug that is similar to BOTOX that relaxes the underlying facial muscles to stop them from contracting, an activity that naturally forms wrinkles on the face. Dr. Khorsandi generally uses Dysport during cosmetic treatments aimed to smoothen out the wrinkles on the upper third section of the face, as well as diminish the appearance of crow’s feet, thin lips or neck wrinkles. It is injected in tiny doses with precision so it does not affect unintended muscles. The results, compared to BOTOX, are quicker as the diffusion is much faster. Dr. Khorsandi may recommend a combination of both drugs to attain the best results for his Las Vegas area patients.
"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017
"Awesome - Such a talented doctor. He was able to take my breasts which were in bad shape after my previous surgeon messed them up, and make them look pretty again. I didn't take my top off for over two years in front of my husband. Now I can't wait for pool season. He is compassionate and caring to boot. Love Dr. Khorsandi."- Anonymous / Vitals / May 05, 2017
"First off I would love to thank patty for recommending me dr Khorsandi and also thank you for answering all my questions and making me feel so comfortable ! Idk where to start off by , but basically I'm 28 turning 29 and I just felt that I needed to feel more "womanly" so it's been years that I wanted a Breast agumentation i had what every woman has , one breast smaller than the other but to me it was such a big insecurity of mine like anyone else that has insecurities. So I finally decided I wanted to do this for myself . Went In for my consultation on March 2nd 2017. First of the place it's self LOVE it! The front desk girls super nice and professional and beautiful by the way :) I waited for Dr Khorsandi and first impression is that he made me feel comfortable I asked questions told him what I wanted , I did showed him what I thought I wanted but what I honestly loved about him is the fact that he kept it real with me and educated me on the implant placement , measurements, cc's and how because I was so small I couldn't risk putting a wrong implant size on me . He took pictures of me on the 3D simulator and I couldn't believe seeing myself with breast. We decided to do 450 on my left and 485 due to symmetry .After all that I set my apt to proceed to my final decision. Surgery was April 12th the day of surgery I was freaking out since I never had gone through no big surgeries ever but everyone at the surgery center was amazing ! Dr Khorsandi came in to mark me and just told me that everything will be fine and I'm going to look amazing so that just made me feel calm (I mean he does this like everyday ) I woke up feeling great! No pain at all I had a great recovery so far I'm loving my new girls, my scar is looking so good I'm now 3 weeks post op , I'm not just saying this to sound cliche but dr Khorsandi really has changed my life not just physically but now I feel so much happier and I feel like a brand new woman thank you dr Khorsandi again !"- D.C. / Yelp / May 03, 2017

"I love VIP Plastic Surgery. Dr. K and his staff are so helpful and friendly. I came in for lip fillers, laser hair removal, and tattoo removal. I am in love with how my lips turned out and at no point during all the procedures did I feel any pain! Melanie performed the tattoo removal and my second session of laser hair removal. She made sure I was comfortable, at ease, and felt no pain. She is absolutely amazing!!! Everyone is amazing!!"- J.Y. / Yelp / May 01, 2017
As Dysport affects nerve and muscular function, injection sites must be marked for the purpose of accuracy. This is to avoid any unintended muscle to receive a dose. A tiny needle is used and the product is injected into specific spots on the face. Normally, topical anesthetic is applied to help with any discomfort during treatment. The medicine can target fine lines or the deeper creases by means of adjusting the amount of medication. A typical session can last up to 30 minutes. Depending on how severe the skin condition is, multiple treatments may be recommended.
What to Expect@headingTag>
One advantage to Dysport is that the results are visible within 2-3 days. Similar to any injection, mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites, but cold ice packs are applied immediately after the injection to help with this. After treatment, the patient will be able to go back to a normal routine without any downtime, but should refrain from any strenuous exercise for about 24 hours. Patients who have this treatment find results satisfying as the skin will appear softer and smoother.
A full syringe cost of Dysport averages about $350. Sometimes, a patient may only need a single syringe while others may need several. This will affect the overall cost. The number of syringes used will be determined at the time of the consultation. Factors to consider include how severe the facial wrinkles are and how many areas on the face are being treated. Patients should also keep in mind that Dysport lasts, on average, about 4-6 months. Those who love their results may return for additional treatments at the appropriate time.

Dysport or Fillers?@headingTag>
Dysport, like BOTOX, is a safe alternative to correct facial wrinkles. Both of these drugs are known as muscle (or wrinkle) relaxers. Injectable fillers create a similar result, but the function behind the medicine is different. A filler works to add volume under the skin to improve facial fullness in areas where volume has been lost. This results in a smoother, softer surface. Many times, muscle relaxers are combined with an injectable filler to create maximum results.
Dysport or BOTOX?@headingTag>
Dysport and BOTOX are very similar to each other, both relax the underlying muscles to give the skin an appearance that is smoother. A couple of key differences are that Dysport diffuses faster than BOTOX and so the results become more evident sooner. Dysport has also been shown to work better in some areas of the face than BOTOX (for example, the crow’s feet). This varies by patient.
The results following a Dysport injection will last about 4-6 months. It is common for patients to return every quarter for follow-up treatment.
