Dysport in Fort Worth, TX

Dr. Y. Anthony Nakamura, a board-certified plastic surgeon and recognized expert in plastic surgery and body contouring, offers Dysport® injections to the residents of Arlington, Fort Worth, and the surrounding communities in Texas.

Dysport® is a treatment for individuals under age 65 who want to eliminate their moderate to severe frown lines without changing the overall appearance of their face.

Who Is a Candidate for Dysport®?

Men and women between the ages of 18 and 65 who are in good overall health and who want to decrease the appearance of their moderate to severe frown lines are good candidates for Dysport®.

The Consultation

Dr. Nakamura and his certified injection nurse will review your medical history and talk with you about your treatment goals. They also will determine your candidacy for this particular type of procedure and, if desired, can provide you with information on pricing.

What Can I Expect?

Just one injection of Dysport® into each of five points between and above a patient’s eyebrows will help block a signal from the nerve to the muscles, resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing the muscles that form frown lines from contracting. You should not be treated with Dysport® any more frequently than every 90 days.

The total amount of time involved in a Dysport® treatment is just 10 to 20 minutes, and the most common side effects are headache, throat irritation, pain or irritation at the injection site, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling or drooping, and nausea.

It is important to note that in some cases, Dysport® and all botulinum toxin products may affect areas of the body distant from the injection site and in rare cases can cause symptoms of a serious condition called botulism. These symptoms can occur hours, days, or weeks after treatment and can include swallowing and breathing problems, loss of strength or increased weakness, double vision, trouble talking, and hoarseness. You should call your doctor immediately upon experiencing any of these conditions.

At Accent On You, we take pride in delivering the utmost quality of care with a personalized approach. Our patients in Arlington, Fort Worth, and the surrounding communities in Texas receive nothing but the most comprehensive information on the procedures we perform because we believe that an informed decision is the best decision.
