Dysport is a cosmetic injectable that greatly reduce the appearance of creases between the brows, on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth. Dysport can also be used to decrease excessive sweating in the armpits and palms, a condition known as hyperhidrosis. The purified protein products in injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport, work by inhibiting the muscle movement that leads to wrinkles. Small injections of Dysport into these muscles temporarily diminishes movement. At his Houston MedSpa, triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Mentz supervises the use of Dysport, BOTOX, and wrinkle fillers by his licensed nurse injectors to help every patient gets a natural, youthful results.
"Dr. Mentz is nothing short of a magician. I went to him for an abdominoplasty in November of 2015 and his work has been life changing. His "bedside manner" is equal to his skill. I did not, for one moment, feel spoken down to or intimidated by his brilliance. He was kind, professional and has a great sense of humor. This man is an artist."- J.R. / Facebook / Aug 16, 2017
"Dr. Mentz and his staff are the best! I have been a patient of Dr. Mentz for about 15 years now and will continue to use his facility because there are many different services available. I am almost 71 years old and people always tell me that I look so much younger than my age. Thank you Dr. Mentz Janet L."- J.L. / Yelp / Feb 27, 2020
"I was a client of his 25 years ago when he did my nose and a bit of lipo. I have thoroughly enjoyed my nose after all these years. It was a tricky surgery, as I had broken it before in a riding accident. Now, 25 years later, I am going back to fix my breasts. I can't say enough good things about him; Many of my friends and clients went to have their surgeries with him after seeing my results and they had no problems."- L.W. / Yelp / Feb 03, 2020

"Dr Mentz is an incredibly talented and gracious doctor! With Wonderful bedside manner! He was able to work magic with a rhinoplasty revision from the previous botched nose job I had received from a doctor before him. My nose looks better than it ever has!! He also did a breast augmentation. Upsizing my 10 yr old implants from saline to silicone and a larger implant. And I finally have the breasts I always wanted!! And a testament to his generosity and commitment to perfection, originally I had a smaller implant chosen and after the original surgery was not happy with the size after all. Dr Mentz was kind enough to allow me to go back under the knife only a couple of days after the initial surgery and obtain the larger implants I desired...FREE OF CHARGE!! Only charging me for the price of the implants. His compassion and understanding made me feel like he really cares and his commitment to perfection rivals my own I am about to have a Brazilian butt lift done with him in a month or two and I am so excited!! Because I know what a talented doctor he is!! I would not entrust my body or face to another doctor EVER AGAIN! If your looking for your "happily ever after", look no further! Thank you again Dr Mentz!! For making me feel (and look) whole again!!"- C.B. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2019

Most patients will begin to see an improvement in their dynamic wrinkles about 2-3 days after their Dysport treatment. Results usually last for about 4 months, so patients are encouraged to schedule treatments about 3-4 months apart to maintain their results.
Dysport Vs. BOTOX?
Dysport and BOTOX are both injectable wrinkle relaxers made with botulinum toxin type A for temporary relief from dynamic wrinkles. The main difference between Dysport and BOTOX is that the results of Dysport usually appear about 1-2 days before the results of BOTOX. For patients who have become resistant to BOTOX treatments or who are beginning to see diminished results, switching to Dysport may help restore their initial results.
Allergies and Conditions?
Dysport should not be used by anyone who has an allergy to cow’s milk or any of the ingredients in Dysport. During the consultation, patients should disclose their full medical history, including any conditions, current medications, and allergies to help determine if Dysport is safe for them and their best choice.
While most patients will tolerate Dysport treatments without any problems, some of the most common side effects include irritation at the injection site, headache, swelling, inflammation, and nausea. Patients should contact our office immediately if they are concerned about any side effects after their treatment.
