Our team provides Dysport treatments in Santa Monica, CA, to help you look younger by reducing wrinkles as signs of aging.

Discover everything you need to know about this effective, safe, FDA-approved treatment.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is just like Botox because both are neurotoxin treatments that achieve fast results.

For instance, a Dysport injection temporarily reduces muscle activity in the targeted areas areas of your face. We might look at frown lines around the eyebrows for such a treatment. Dysport will help take care of the muscle contractions that cause those frown lines.

Dysport received FDA approval in 2009. The substance has aesthetic uses in addition to its medical and therapeutic ones.

How does Dysport work?

Dysport relaxes and soften muscles in the face to lessen the signs of fine lines and wrinkles.

Our clinician will inject a minuscule amount of Dysport into your facial muscle using a very small needle. As the muscle relaxes, your skin smooths out, and your face diminishes the wrinkles naturally without any invasive procedures.

How is Dysport different from Botox?

Dysport sets faster while utilizing less protein for long-lasting results.

What areas of the face does Dysport treat?

Dysport originally was intended to treat wrinkles around your eyebrows.

Now, clinicians treat four areas of your face with Dysport:

  • Eyebrows, especially any frown lines
  • Upper lip for lipstick lines
  • Upper forehead
  • Crow’s feet on the outside of the eyes

The number of injections you receive for your treatment depends on the area you want to improve.
