Wrinkles? Relax… there's Dysport®
Every microexpression our faces make begins with the twitch of a muscle beneath the skin. Over time, those muscles tend to stay tense longer, creating what are known as dynamic wrinkles. For patients in Darien, Dysport® injections from the licensed injectors at David Passaretti, MD, FACS are a simple, reliable way to stave off the signs of aging for months per treatment.
Dysport® is a treatment for dynamic wrinkles and fine lines on the skin, particularly around the face. When facial muscles fold or crease the skin in the same place repeatedly, it breaks down collagen. The skin loses its elasticity, and the creases remain.
Dysport® gives your skin and muscles a little break. When injected into the muscle, it prevents the muscle from firing the same way over and over, softening wrinkles and fine lines in the process. You'll still be able to express yourself. But, you will be able to do so without worrying about deepening those creases.
When you arrive at David Passaretti MD, FACS, you’ll meet with Cassandra Esposito, N.P., and our aesthetic team. We’ll work with you to assess your situation and determine the exact locations of the injection sites that will trigger the best results. It could be “the 11s” (those pesky frown lines between the eyebrows) or crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.
Then, using sterile syringes, our expert injectors insert a tiny needle directly into the muscles that cause those creases. Following each treatment, we’ll evaluate your results. That way, we can ensure your dosage always hits just the right level of correction.
The process takes just a few moments per injection. Occasionally, a patient feels a twinge of discomfort during the injection process, but it goes away as fast as it appears.
Most Dysport® patients experience no down time following their treatments, and resume normal activities almost immediately. Rarely, patients experience side effects, but they are usually limited to bruising, swelling, redness, or tenderness at the injection site.
Before your treatment, the aesthetic team at David Passaretti MD, FACS will review your medical status and history, to make sure you know the risks and are able to receive Dysport® safely.
Once your treatment is complete, be sure to avoid lying down or touching or massaging your face for at least four hours, and do not sleep on the treated area for the first few nights. You will receive detailed instructions on how to maximize the effectiveness of your treatment from our aesthetic team before your procedure.
You should start to see the results of your Dysport® injection within a few days of treatment. By the end of the first month, your final results should be apparent. You should be able to maintain this new look with follow-up injections every three months or so, depending on your results. Over time, our aesthetic team will be able to calibrate your doses to maximize the benefits using the data from previous injections.
Dysport® requires the trained hands of medical professionals like the ones at David Passaretti, MD, FACS to properly administer. Cassandra Esposito, N.P. understands Dysport® and its effects, and she can make sure that you receive the proper dosage for natural-looking results.
Dr. David Passaretti and his trained aesthetics team offer multiple surgical and non-surgical treatment options that can reduce the appearance of dynamic facial wrinkles. These include everything from other injectables like Botox and Xeomin to surgical solutions like facial sculpting, brow lifts, and eyelid surgery.

Our customizable treatment plans are as diverse as the patients we see.
