Dysport in Syracuse, Rochester, and Ithaca, NY

Double board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics feature Dysport® treatments for patients residing in the Syracuse metropolitan area and Central New York area including Ithaca, and Rochester.

Over time, the small adjustments of your facial muscles can lead to long-term changes in your appearance, including frown lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles, and worry lines. These lines in the face get etched into the forehead, near the eyes, and in the space between your eyebrows. Fortunately, these unattractive developments can be reduced or erased with Dysport®, an FDA-approved non-surgical dermal filler.

What is Dysport®?

Dysport® is a revolutionary new treatment that works similarly to Botox® by relaxing facial muscles to smooth out the skin, greatly reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the face.

Used on its own, Dysport® can minimize or erase the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the upper part of the face. Even greater results in contouring and volume can be achieved when Dysport® is used in combination with a dermal filler. During your treatment, Dysport® will be injected into the underlying facial muscles to relax them and immobilize them, preventing the muscles from contracting to achieve a smoother and rejuvenated appearance.

Dysport® vs. Botox®

Although similar, there are some key differences between Botox® and Dysport®. Botox® is a more powerful numbing agent, and most patients receive just a single dose of Botox® to achieve the same appearance-enhancing effects that would require three doses of Dysport®. The principle advantage of choosing Dysport® is that it produces results more quickly than Botox®. Dysport® treatments usually can be seen within 24 hours while Botox® generally requires between five to seven days to begin taking effect. Another benefit of Dysport® is that each injection affects a wider area, an important aspect that we take into consideration during the administration of treatments.

Overall, Dysport® and Botox® are approximately equal in terms of value and price.

Why Choose Dysport®?

Although there are a number of benefits to choosing Dysport®, the main factor motivating the popularity of Dysport® is its ability to achieve stunning transformations in a person’s appearance. Dysport® treatments result in a youthful, refreshed appearance without the risks and expense of surgery. Dysport® can be used to treat every manner of line and wrinkle in the face, including issues with worry lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, frown lines, and lip and neck wrinkles. Most patients begin to see excellent results within a day of receiving a Dysport® treatment, and side effects and discomfort are very rare.

Dysport® was first authorized by the FDA in 1991 for use in treating muscle spasms and has since become one of the most popular treatment methods available. Hundreds of thousands of doctors in 75 countries around the world rely on Dysport® to relax muscles and improve a person’s appearance.

When you come in for your initial consultation, we will evaluate your overall health and cosmetic conditions. If you qualify as an individual who would benefit from a Dysport® treatment, we can begin work immediately. First, one of our board-certified doctors will analyze your face’s exact requirements and then a carefully titrated dose of Dysport® will be injected via a syringe into the targeted area. Most Dysport® treatments take less than 15 minutes to administer, and the majority of our patients report little or no discomfort during the procedure. Furthermore, Dysport® is well-renowned for causing very few side effects or complications. Although the occasional case of temporary bruising does sometimes occur, it usually resolves itself within three days or less. Other patients have, in rare cases, experienced headaches or localized inflammation following a Dysport® treatment.

Are You a Candidate for Dysport®?

If you see fine lines or wrinkles on the upper part of your nose or around your eyes and forehead, you may be eligible to benefit from Dysport®. Dysport® works best on individuals in generally good health who have realistic expectations about what Dysport® can accomplish. Individuals allergic to abobotulinumtoxin are recommended to avoid Dysport®.

What Can I Expect After the Dysport® Procedure?

Dysport® treatments usually take 15 minutes or less. Following the procedure, results will become visible over the course of the next 24 hours. Any discomfort experienced following the procedure should subside very quickly.

How Soon Can I Return to Work After Dysport®?

There is no recovery time required for Dysport® treatments, but we do recommend waiting for 24 hours before exercising or participating in vigorous physical activities.

The price of Dysport® varies on the amount needed to improve the patient’s appearance. At Natural Face™ Clinics, we accept all major credit cards as well as provide financing through CareCredit®. Do not hesitate to give us a call if you need assistance with financing.

I was working in Central New York and had an upcoming event and needed to get 2 areas of Dystport done. They were able to accommodate my schedule( as it was short notice) Dr. Kim’s entire staff was so friendly and welcoming!! During the procedure , even Nurse Dan held my hand and kept me smiling the whole time!! I was incredibly impressed with Dr Kim as he made sure he took the time to explain the process as well as not “ being rushed” something I have experienced with previous Doctors. I live in Florida but will be seeing Dr Kim from now on, and will be recommending their office to my fellow New Yorkers! It’s been almost 2 weeks since my appointment and the results are amazing!!! So happy! Thank you so much Dr Kim, Mary and the rest of the staff !

Dr. Kim is a world-class facial plastic surgeon. I’ve been to the top surgeons in the country from Beverly Hills to Miami and I found Dr. Kim to be superior. His face and neck lift were flawless and so natural that no one could tell I had anything done, but everyone said I looked ten years younger. As Syracuse is a discreet location, I would highly recommend anyone who wants a top notch face and neck lift to fly in. His bedside manner is as fantastic as his work. I can’t recommend Dr. Kim enough. I think he is the best Facial plastic surgeon in the country.

I am very happy with Dr. Kim and all of his staff. Not only did I have a surgical procedure done but I also go there every week for allergy shots and they couldn't be nicer. And Dr. Kim is awesome - - great bedside manner! I highly recommend them!!!

57 years old and wanted to start my new path in life retired...not looking tired! I did extensive research and sought out 5 surgeon recommendations. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Sang Kim for several reasons: 1 - He specialized in and only performs /neck surgeries, 2 - Dr. Kim is younger and probably more newly established, but there was no doubt that he is a perfectionist and a professional in his field, 3 - He is patient and really listens. I felt confident and trusted that he was giving me his best recommendation for my concerns, 4 - He didn't try to push unnecessary or extra procedures, 5 - I was impressed by how obvious it was that Dr. Kim's administrative and medical staff liked him and respected his work. But most of all, I am extremely satisfied with the results of my face lift!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kim. He is the most patient, professional, and personable physician I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Instead of being rushed through the practice, every member of his staff made me feel welcome and important from the moment I walked through the door. He wouldn't perform a single procedure on me until he fully answered every minute question I had (all of which he eloquently and candidly answered); you can tell that his formal training was exceptional. His bedside manner and skilled technique easily make him one of the best kept secrets in Syracuse. I have referred numerous friends to him who have also, in turn, referred their friends. Make the consult and see for yourself... you won't be disappointed!

Dr. Kim and his staff were incredible. I had a face lift done this past summer and I was treated with dignity and respect by everyone. Dr. Kim is an exceptional surgeon and one of the nicest and kindest doctors I have ever met. I had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his entire staff. I recently went back to Dr. Kim for injections. Again my experience was wonderful. He explains everything he is going to do and what to expect. I didn't bruise and I love the fact that he doesn't overdo. He and his staff are just incredible. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
