Can Dysport Dermalift help to lift the face and shrink pores?

Doctor's Answers 2

Hi there!

Yes it does. Dysport in a diluted form has been well known by many doctors to be able to create a facelift effect by injecting it in the intradermal plane (into the skin level instead of the muscle ). However, it is an off-label use.

It was invented by a Korean plastic surgeon called Dr Lee Young Seob. It can also potentially have the effect of shrinking pores.

It’s great for looking fresh and lifted 1-2 days before an important event when other treatments would not be suitable due to the possible downtime.


Yes Dysport in diluted dose given at dermis level not into muscle has shown collagen remodeling and tightening of skin in the direction of injection.

At the dermal level it also reduce pores like microbotox effect.

Hope it answers your question.

Are facials recommended for big facial pores?

Pores are a major concern for many of my patients and can be quite tricky to treat. Instead of facials, another way to reduce pore size would be through the use of lasers: 1. Carbon laser peel The carbon laser peel is a laser procedure that works together with a thin layer of fine liquid carbon that is applied to the skin. When applied, the liquid carbon penetrates into the pores. As the laser is applied to the skin, the liquid carbon vaporises, reducing the pore size and removing bacteria and dirt along with it. This laser has no downtime and can be done every 2 weeks. 2.

Are there any risks of hypopigmentation after Q-switched laser to remove a birthmark?

It does look like a bit of hypopigmentation and you are correct that it is difficult to treat (most of the time we will have to rely on our own cells to re-pigmentate the area unless you explore other medical repigmentation options). I would suggest laying off the “gentler” laser treatment that you have every 2 weeks for the hypopigmented areas. That being said, the “stronger” laser treatment that you have every 6 weeks should be able to treat the Naevus of Ota (to avoid the hypopigmented areas). Usually, treatment of Naevus of Ota does not leave a white patch.
