Board-certified orthodontist Dr. Saoly Benson offers Las Vegas, NV patients several nonsurgical options for rejuvenating their appearance. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that acts like BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by reiterated facial expressions and movements (like laughing, smiling, and frowning) that, over several decades, make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a grooved line that can be seen even when the face is resting. Dysport is specially created to correct the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. It temporarily blocks signals to the treated muscle so the line is smooth but with natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen. Learn more about Dysport injectable treatments at The Art of Braces to make your face appear more youthful.
Dysport is a good choice if you want a nonsurgical option to improve mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Because dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by chronic use, they may become visible in younger patients and make you appear mad, tired, or sad. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without leaving a "frozen" appearance. Since Dysport's formula expands to reach a group of wrinkles, it's also great for Crow's feet, the small wrinkles in the corners of the eyes. Many patients at The Art of Braces notice visible improvements in their appearance 1 – 3 days following their procedure that may remain for as long as four months.
"Thank you to The Art of Braces for making this smile even more beautiful and making the experience of having braces so positive that Sofia did want to take them off! To top it off Sofia even got a special board from Dr Benson and her staff! ??????"- N.B. / Facebook / Feb 05, 2019
"I had a lower permanent retainer for over 20+ years (how did I age this much?), it broke and I had another orthodontist in town replace it. This one only lasted a couple years and broke on me. I called them to have it replaced and apparently he does not do permanent retainers any longer. I looked around to find someone that did and came across Dr. Benson-yay!The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Every person there was very professional and kind. Dr. Benson and I discussed my lower retainer and she called every lab she could to find a similar to my original retainer since I loved it so much! When I came in for the replacement installation, it was quick and easy. You can tell that Dr. Benson is very knowledgeable. She was the one that did my install and was very gentle. The new permanent retainer is nicer than the last one I had, and was very smooth unlike my last one. It actually feels like my original one that I loved so much. It is very nice that Dr. Benson took the time to listen and execute on finding something that would fit what I was looking for. If you want someone that is knowledgeable, cares and willing to go the extra mile for you-this is your place. You won’t regret it. Highly recommend!"- T.B. / Yelp / Apr 29, 2021
"They do the very best job on working on my braces as well as having such nice and amazing staff. I have seen great improvement to my teeth, especially because whenever I have a bracket that has broken off, they are one text away from scheduling me to get it fixed."- L.J. / Yelp / Feb 09, 2021
"As a patient in treatment, I've been delightfully surprised how quality of care and patient experience consistently warrant a 5-star review. I believe it's a reflection of such a special team behind Dr. Benson. Marlou was simply exceptional! Extremely fast, intentionally accurate, all of which was wrapped with thoughtfulness and care. The Art of Braces is certainly fortunate to have her. Thank you Marlou!"- B.B. / Google / Feb 02, 2021
"I highly recommend the art of braces . The girls are all so kind and detail oriented with what they do, I always feel like I’m in safe hands. My smile has never been more beautiful thanks to the treatment Dr. Benson chose for me, my braces have been on for maybe 4-5 months and my teeth have already straightened significantly. This lady knows what she’s doin. Also this goes without saying, out of the technicians a girl that stands out, and goes above and beyond to make me feel welcomed is Sarah Joy! She’s so enthusiastic about the progress my teeth make, and she is always so kind and pleasant to talk to. I can tell she genuinely cares and that means a lot to me! I’ve had nothing but great experiences at my appointments, I look forward to the rest!"- M.C. / Facebook / Dec 24, 2020
What to Expect
Injections of Dysport are administered in our clinic following your consultation with Dr. Benson, lasting around 15 – 30 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is generally unnecessary because the Dysport is injected using a fine needle that creates little pain, but it may be applied if requested. The treatment area will be cleaned and five well-placed injections will be made across the eyebrows, followed with a cold compress to lessen bruising and swelling. Following your injections at The Art of Braces, you can perform regular tasks, but you should avoid taxing activities for at least one day.
Following a Dysport session, you may see light redness and swelling at and around the injected area, but this generally will disappear within 1 – 3 days. You should sleep propped up for at least one night and may want to apply cold compresses if needed. Improvements are commonly noticeable in 1 –3 days as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a softer, smoother appearance. Your results should remain for around 3 – 4 months and more injections may be done at The Art of Braces in Las Vegas, NV to extend your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Dysport cost?
The cost depends on the amount of Dysport needed to achieve your goals. During your consult, Dr. Benson can discuss your estimated costs and go over all your payment options before your Dysport treatment is performed.
Should I get Dysport or BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are safe and effective to treat facial wrinkles and both are widely available. A skilled practitioner, like Dr. Benson, can tell which treatment may offer the best benefit. The results of a Dysport injection typically becomes visible faster than BOTOX. Dysport also tends to last a bit longer and spread to a larger coverage area.

To rejuvenate your facial appearance, you may consider injectable fillers, as well as products, such as Dysport, to attain results. Both skin treatments work to decrease facial wrinkles but use varying approaches. Injectable fillers can add volume or improve static lines, while Dysport relaxes dynamic wrinkles.
Can it be combined with other treatments?
If you are looking to refresh your appearance without surgery, Dr. Benson will create a custom wrinkle treatment plan. This may include both Dysport to relax wrinkles, as well as a dermal filler to correct lines and add volume.
How often for treatment?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3 – 4 months after treatment, but this will vary. During your consultation, Dr. Benson will recommend how long you should wait before scheduling your next injection based on your goals.
