There are a number of factors that can contribute to aging of the skin, including stress, diet and exercise routines, sun exposure, environmental conditions and more. One of the most common areas where wrinkles develop is the space between the eyebrows. Wrinkles and fine lines in this area can cause individuals to look aged, tired and even angry. As a renowned cosmetic dermatologist in South Miami, Dr. Alonso is proud to offer a range of injectable treatments, including Dysport®, to combat these signs of aging. Learn more about this injectable treatment below. To schedule a consultation contact Dr. Alonso’s practice today at (305) 403-1181 .


Dysport is a facial injectable treatment that works similarly to Botox®Cosmetic . The injectable gel consists of bacterium clostridium botulinum, a muscle-relaxing agent which works to prevent underlying muscles in the face from contracting. By reducing the number of muscle contractions, Dysport simultaneously eliminates existing wrinkles and prevents new wrinkles from forming. This prescription treatment is recommended for patients who are unhappy with mild to moderate “frown lines” between the brows. Other areas that benefit from the results of Dysport are the forehead and just outside the eyes, erasing the lines and creases in those areas. Contrary to popular belief, Dysport does not affect the ability to show facial expressions or freely move other facial muscles. Rather, Dysport creates a youthful, natural-looking result.


Dysport is FDA-approved for use in patients 18 years or older who are unhappy with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles between their brows. During a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Alonso evaluates each patient’s aesthetic goals and health history to determine if Dysport injections are appropriate. It is important to disclose all medications, allergies and health conditions to Dr. Alonso in order to avoid any treatment complications. Patients who suffer from muscle spasms or other muscle-related conditions should consider other injectable treatments such as Perlane or Restylane , as these do not contain muscle-relaxing agents.


Dr. Alonso administers Dysport injections in the comfort of her state-of-the-art practice in South Miami / Coconut Grove. The entire treatment process can be completed in less than one half hour. Dr. Alonso’s targeted injections of Dysport reduce muscle contractions temporarily. In the ensuing days, as the facial muscles begin to relax, patients will notice a diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Final results from Dysport injections are noticeable within one week, and can last for several months.


Patients who receive Dysport injections may experience slight redness, tenderness and/or swelling in the treated area. These symptoms, as well as any muscle tension, subside on their own. Because Dysport is a minimally invasive treatment, patients can return to routine activities directly after their appointments. Dr. Alonso provides thorough post-treatment instructions and is available to address any questions or concerns that may arise after treatment.


Dr. Alonso is an experienced cosmetic dermatologist who has helped countless patients enhance their appearance through facial injectables such as Dysport. If you are unhappy with the onset of wrinkles or fine lines and would like to learn more about your non-surgical treatment options, contact her practice at 305-403-1181 to schedule a consultation. Dr. Alonso can help you decide between a number of injectable treatments, including Perlane, Restylane, and Juvederm.
