Dysport in San Diego

Look like you, with less wrinkles.

What is DYSPORT?

We are proud to be a premier provider for Dysport in San Diego. DYSPORT (abobotulinumtoxin A) is another great product that has been around for several years outside the United States. Ever since obtaining FDA-approval in 2009, Americans now have another option to treat lines and wrinkles of their faces.  DYSPORT is often used for smoothing the appearance of the vertical wrinkles and glabellar lines most prominent on your forehead in between your eyebrows. Let Allurant Medical be your first choice for Dysport in San Diego!

A mistaken belief is that neuromodulators such as BOTOX or DYSPORT will entirely inhibit our facial motion and expression. The purpose of a BOTOX or DYSPORT treatment is to smooth out facial lines, while still offering a natural appearance and the ability to show emotion. When injected into the exact appropriate location and given in the correct amount, BOTOX or DYSPORT will modify the degree of muscle contraction in order to minimize lines while allowing some movement to display expressions.

Botox or Dysport can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane and also with PRP to bring added effect in restoring and rejuvenating the facial shape and skin. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane lift the facial tissue and make the patient’s face look younger. PRP rejuvenates the tissue naturally bringing lasting volume and glow to the facial skin.

Dysport Injections

Dysport is great for eliminating facial lines. The doctor often injects the filler at five different areas of the forehead, causing its deep expression lines to be flattened and more even with the rest of the skin. In doing so, you won’t look as old, upset, or tired anymore. In other words, Dysport fights against wrinkles which are caused by frequent facial muscle contractions. These contractions occur the most in the middle of the eyebrows and on the forehead.

Dysport injections work the best for treating crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, hyperhidrosis under the arms, and neck bands.

Qualifying Candidates to Receive Dysport Treatment

As a premier provider for Dysport in San Diego, the doctor always puts your safety first. During your consultation, talk to the doctor about your medical history and any allergies that you have. This ensures that no complications will arise from the Dysport treatment. The best candidate is someone who is in perfect health and simply doesn’t like the wrinkles on their facial skin. In this case, a Dysport treatment can help this candidate to make their skin more youthful and vibrant.

Customized Dysport Treatment

Each patient is treated differently based on their current skin’s condition. Once the doctor has evaluated your skin, he will determine the best way to enhance the look of your facial skin. His feedback will be 100 percent truthful, so Dysport may not be recommended if he believes that it will not be beneficial for you. But if he thinks it can help you, then he will certainly recommend it. Of course, the areas of the injection and the amount of solution injected is customized to accommodate your personal needs.


Like Botox, Dysport injections do not create permanent results. The results will last between three and six months for most patients. It all depends on the severity of your wrinkles. Some patients require more maintenance and rejuvenation than others. The great thing about Dysport is that it gives you natural-looking results. Whether this is your first time receiving Dysport injections or not, the doctor is an expert at planning and administering this treatment to patients. For Dysport in San Diego, you are in the best of hands at Allurant Medical.

Dysport Recovery Period

During the recovery period, you can continue to go to work, exercise, and perform your regular daily activities. Just be prepared to deal with the swelling, bruising, and redness which remains for about a couple of days after injection. These symptoms can be covered with make-up if necessary.

Dysport Potential Side Effects

Patients usually experience some side effects after receiving the Dysport injection. Some of these side effects include irritation in the injected area, headaches, swelling, and redness. These are temporary symptoms that usually subside after two to three days.

There is a rare chance that you may develop botulism after receiving Dysport injections. This side effect causes you to lose muscle strength and promotes breathing troubles and blurred vision. You may develop botulism just hours after the procedure, or it could develop within the days or weeks after the treatment. Therefore, you need to recognize these symptoms as they occur so that you can seek treatment for them.

Botox or Dysport Frequently Asked Questions:

What causes wrinkles?

When we smile, laugh, or make other expressions, muscles in our face create creases. Over time this can result in a variety of lines and wrinkles, including crow’s feet, and laugh lines.   As we age, our skin becomes drier, thinner and our skin’s elasticity also decreases. Combined with the repetitive usage of our facial muscles, these changes could cause wrinkles and lines to be deeper and even more pronounced.

During the treatment, Botox or Dysport will get injected into your specific facial muscles using a syringe with a tiny needle.
