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.

How Much Does Dysport® Cost in Syracuse?

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.

As of this date, the results are great and I am happy with the end result. Dr. Kim has been very kind and professional. He is a great doctor. The staff is very kind and caring. They are always friendly and accommodating on the phone and in the office. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kim to my family and friends. Thank you for everything!

Everything about the procedure was well explained and it was a breeze! The chin surgery came out well and as expected. The doctor was very professional and put me at ease. He explained everything that he was doing. The staff is top notch and Karen was outstanding.

- Carl – East Syracuse, NY


The initial visit was informative and reassuring. I was given options and a clear understanding as to what to expect. It was very comforting. I received excellent care and I am thrilled with my results! I’ve already booked my next procedure. I was pleasantly surprised with how little pain there was and how quickly I recovered.
Dr. Halliday is wonderful! He is knowledgeable and professional. I wouldn’t trust my face to just anyone. He is an excellent plastic surgeon. The staff is professional, caring and attentive. Appointment times are honored and the visits are never rushed. I am so grateful for the outstanding care I received.

- Susan – East Syracuse, NY


My experience was very professional and helpful. My questions were answered that I did not think to ask. They were very friendly and accommodating. The procedure went smoothly. Post-op care was especially spoiling, considering it was during the holidays. Everything was done to ensure I had an optimal outcome.
My results are splendid! I am receiving compliments that I look 15-20 years younger than prior to my procedure. My doctor was outstanding and genuinely concerned. He wanted me to understand what was being done and why. I had clear and concise answers to questions and received excellent bedside manner. The staff is friendly, efficient, on time and on task. They are eager to assist! I would recommend and would use again when needing cosmetic enhancements. I am very, very pleased with my experience and results.

- D.L. – East Syracuse, NY


When I look in the mirror, I know I made a great choice. Dr. Halliday and his exceptional staff were thoughtful, knowledgeable, and caring. My results were very good and not over-done like some actress on TV. I have referred friends and they also had great results.

- Mary - New York Mills, NY


I cannot begin to tell you how happy I was and continue to be with Dr. Halliday and his staff. I felt very comfortable the first time I met him and talked with his staff. I was treated professionally and with dignity. I originally met Dr. Halliday to discuss fillers. After talking to him and discussing all my options, I decided to have a face lift and surgery on my upper and lower eye lids. He never pushed me into making a decision, in fact, he told me to think about it. I left and headed to work and I called the same day and booked my surgery. He is an artist and a master at what he does. I am extremely happy with my results. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Halliday and his staff to anyone interested in improving their appearance.

- Debbie - Syracuse, NY


This whole process has been an amazing experience. The staff and Dr. Halliday treat you with respect and also assure your privacy. The staff is efficient and communicates well; you have complete knowledge of the process and the outcome is absolutely awesome. Thank you!

- Dale - Ilion, NY


At my initial visit I was met with a short wait time and a friendly staff. Throughout the whole procedure I was comfortable and I healed well and had no problems; I am happy with my results. Dr. Kim is so nice and friendly. He answered all my questions and made me feel safe and comfortable. The office staff has been very friendly and helpful as well. Everyone is so nice here.

- Karen – Syracuse, NY


When I met Dr. Kim and the staff, everyone was friendly. Dr. Kim did a good job with my procedure and made me feel comfortable. My hair has started to grow and I feel like the procedure has worked. Everyone here is nice and I liked Dr. Kim’s honesty with me. My doctor wanted me to go to a different doctor for my nose but I told him “no I want to go to Dr. Kim”.

- Ljupco – Syracuse, NY


At my initial visit Dr. Kim and the staff were very informative on what was going to happen with the surgery. He removed Melanoma from the left side of my nose and it very good. All of the Melanoma has been removed and is healing well. Dr. Kim has been very informative on all that has taken place and what is in the future after surgery. The staff has also been very helpful throughout the whole process. I would see Dr. Kim again if I had any more cancer to be removed.

- Eugene – Syracuse, NY


My initial consultation was very informative. The doctor was honest about the procedure, as well as, the cost and I felt no pressure to make a commitment. The office itself is very comfortable and the staff is friendly and welcoming. My procedure went smooth and the doctor was very cautious to not release me until he was sure I was ready to leave. I am very happy with my results and the healing time was even better than expected. Dr. Kim has an excellent bed side manner and his staff made the whole process enjoyable. He is easy to talk to and very informative about the procedure, as well as, advice on the healing process. I would definitely refer my family and friends to this practice.

- Linda – East Syracuse, NY


Dr. Kim and the entire staff are nice. Dr. Kim did a good job and everything is 100%.

- Nevzad – East Syracuse, NY


My husband and I met with Dr. Halliday and Terri. We arrived to a very clean and inviting office and did not have to wait long. Dr. Halliday and Terri did not tell me what should be done but were interested in what my goals were for a cosmetic procedure. They answered all my questions and explained their recommendations clearly. On the day of my procedure everyone went out of their way to make sure I was as comfortable as possible. I liked the “privacy” of the operating and recovery area. I feel like l look years younger while still looking “age appropriate”. Friends and family have commented I look good and the natural lift is exactly that; very natural. The only way people know I had a procedure is because I told them. Dr. Halliday was very professional and friendly the entire time. I completely trusted all the decisions he made during the procedure. He took his time and even took time to put my husband at ease about having the procedure done. Everyone at the office is extremely friendly and I have never had to wait long for my appointment. I feel like I have made an investment in my face and while I am happy to be my age I am even happier to have a face that matches the body I have. I will continue to make enhancements along the way with Dr. Halliday, Terri, and everyone in his office who made me feel and look special.

- Nicki – East Syracuse, NY


The staff is very pleasant and helpful. I am very pleased with Dr. Hallidays expertise.

- Debra Victor - East Syracuse, NY


This is a wonderful place to come, everyone is great and happy. I had the best care and will recommend this surgery center to my friends.

- Linda - Syracuse, NY


I was very worried about my surgery. However, the doctor and staff were wonderful and my surgery and recovery were well worth it.
