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.

"Amazing orthodontic care ✔️ Incredibly kind doctor and staff ✔️ Beautiful aesthetic office environment ✔️ Needless to say, we have absolutely loved our experience with Art of Braces! A year ago our pediatric dentist gave us a heads-up that our daughter had a crossbite, a very small mouth and a good deal of crowding and that we'd want to schedule a consultation with an orthodontist for early orthodontic intervention. We then scheduled a consultation with Art of Braces and a few other (very popular) orthodontists in town. After attending all the consultations we knew that Art of Braces was the place for us. Not only is Dr. Benson is incredibly knowledgeable but she is so kind. She answers any questions that we have, she takes her time with her patients and she has never talked "down" to either my daughter or I. While other orthodontists in town jumped right into recommending thousands of dollars worth of "round one" braces, Dr. Benson was forthright and said that she believed my young daughter's current orthodontic needs could be solved with an expander (and one set of braces a few years in the future.) She was right. My daughter's crossbite and crowding are no longer an issue. She's now has room for her adult teeth to grow in and has a centered (though currently half toothless 😉) smile. Dr. Benson's staff is also fantastic! You can tell that Januari, the office manager, knows what she's doing. She is helpful, kind and answered allllll of our consultation questions! Allison, the scheduling coordinator, is just so stinking nice and easy to work with! (I want to be her friend.) Marlou, who has been our orthodontic assistant at almost every appointment, is incredible!! She sent my daughter a letter after her final expander check with encouragement from the tooth fairy - I mean how sweet is that?! On to the office environment. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the aesthetic experience of The Art of Braces. Dr. Benson is not only a orthodontist but also a fantastic photographer. The Art of Braces is basically an art gallery with orthodontic equipment in it. Truly. There are hug glass landscape photos on every wall. You just feel like you can take a deep breath when you walk inside. (With your mask on, of course, because we're still living in 2020 😉). Her photography is absolutely stunning. On the note of coronavirus - The Art of Braces has gone above and beyond to keep the patients and staff safe during this pandemic. I am incredibly grateful for the detail and standard of care that they display. I feel safe in their office, and we can't say that about most places right now. I know that this may be a drawback for some but it was really a selling point for us - other orthodontists entice kids to their offices with "prizes" and incentives and video games in the lobby...The Art of Braces doesn't do that, but it's because they don't have to. I feel like their office offers an excape from consumerism and a chance for all patients to simply be present. (But they do have snacks that you can grab on the way out ❤️). My daughter doesn't need to feel the pressure of "competing" for a prize or the temporary "high" of "winning" a "reward" and can simply appreciate the fact that her teeth are being cared for. Quality and minimalism are very important to me and The Art of Braces is a place where that is beautifully reflected and mirrored to my daughter. All of that to say - we are so grateful to have found The Art of Braces and would 10/10 recommended Dr. Benson and her staff for all your orthodontic needs! ✨"- A.M. / Google / Jul 30, 2020
"After searching for an Orthodontist online, I stumbled across The Art of Braces on Instagram. Their Instagram page is awesome, it really shows exactly what the clinic is like and who the staff members are. There are numerous videos that discuss orthodontics, as well as progress photos of some patients. There are also great photos that Dr. Benson takes, which shows she really is an artist! After finding their Instagram, I was really excited to schedule an appointment for a consultation. When scheduling my appointment, the process was so easy. All paperwork was completed online, so I filled everything out prior to my appointment. They also have a texting system, so you can text back and forth with the staff which is so convenient!I had my consultation yesterday, and I can’t express how excited I am to come back to start my treatment! The office is beautiful and clean, Januari is so nice, and Dr. Benson is very knowledgable and has great bedside manner. She really cares about you and it really shows. Dr. Benson discussed my couple options regarding braces, and I expressed some of my anxieties. Dr. Benson calmed my nerves and told me the details of what the treatment will be and how it really isn’t a big deal. Once I decided on a treatment plan, Januari walked me through the finance details. Their clinic offers their own payment plan, but they also work with companies like Care Credit if you’d prefer that as well.I cannot wait to start my treatment with Dr. Benson, I am so happy I found her! It’s also a plus that their clinic is so close to me, but seriously I would drive far to this clinic for their care."- S.L. / Yelp / Jun 11, 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.
Should I get Dysport or a dermal filler?
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.
If you want a nonsurgical option to revitalize your appearance by correcting dynamic lines, Dysport wrinkle relaxer is a wonderful treatment.
