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.

"Here’s my experIence with Dr Benson, I went into the consultation not sure of how to explain what has been bothering me about my teeth and smile. Ive had braces in high school which was in 2002 with a dif dr but wasn’t happy with the results and never confident with my smile this is my second time and it’s only been almost 3 months that I’ve gone to see Dr Benson and I’m shook!! My teeth are already getting straight. Still have 9 months and I can’t wait to see the results. She literally knew what she was talking about and def full of knowledge and so thorough with issues I didn’t even know how to explain that I hated about my smile! She was patient with all of my questions and was so professional, warm and understanding. Her staff is incredibly kind as well. I’ll do an update in the end cuz I still have months to go but so far, do not hesitate if u want to have great teeth again. I love her art work displayed all over! They’re so beautiful! Thank u Dr Benson and everyone else who has been kind.Our smile is one of our biggest asset. Def worth the investment so far. I hope to look as amazing as the after photos of the others she has helped."- S.S. / Yelp / Nov 16, 2021
"So Thankful for the Art of Braces!!! - I've been on a long braces journey with the Art Of Braces with no fault other than mine, but it has been a great experience. From my very first consultation everyone from the front desk receptionist to the dental hygenist, and especially Dr. Benson has been extremely nice and patient with me. I started with Invisalign. It was great. They take pictures at your appointments so you can see the progress your teeth are making and I think that's super cool. The only problem with the Invisalign was me. I never wore it. I would wear them constantly for 3 weeks then not wear them for about a month. It was not working due to the inactivity of me not wearing my trays. I finally decided I wanted to take responsibility for my teeth. I went over other options with Dr. Benson and she told me about Inbrace. It's like regular braces but instead of the brackets on the outside of your teeth, they are on the inside. Being that I am a bartender and in my late 20's I loved this option. I would wear my braces full-time without the option of taking them off and nobody would be able to see them. For inbrace, they take a 3d scan of your teeth and create a smart wire that helps move your teeth to where they need to go. Sofia called to schedule my appointment. She is always so cheerful and bright on the phone and in person! When I came in to get the inbrace, I was a bit freaked out and nervous. Sofia calmed me down and told me just to breathe. Amber took me back and started putting on the brackets. She knew I was nervous, so she started cracking jokes and acting like we were old-time friends. Took my nerves right out of me. I enjoyed hanging out with Amber while she put the brackets and the wire on. It's been about a week since I've had it on now and I couldn't be happier with my decision. The pain level is about 3 out of 10. No pain just soreness like every other braces. I'm teaching myself how to re-eat since the brackets are in the side, but I love that I can't take them off. I will be in them for about 15-18 months, but so happy to be doing with Dr Benson, Amber, and Sofia. Thank you so much to all of them! I will update my review at the end of my treatment!"- G. / RealSelf / Oct 26, 2021
"Could not recommend a more professional practice - I could not be happier with my treatment. Dr. Benson and staff are amazing. Personable, professional, kind. I’m halfway through my braces and already seeing amazing results. And I just had lip filler and I’m in love! I got the result I was hoping for, just a natural plump! Could not recommend a more professional practice for your teeth and filler needs!"- C. / RealSelf / Sep 02, 2021
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.
