Botulinum Toxin Injectable Treatment in Costa Mesa


Like Botox, Dysport is a botulinum toxin based injectable treatment designed to help patients better manage and prevent facial lines and wrinkles.

Reasons to Choose Dysport

Imagine how many times per day you smile, frown, squint, laugh, or do just about anything aside from a blank stare with your face. Now, multiply that number by 365 days a year and then by however many years old you are. That is how many times the muscles within your face are pulled, contracted, and pushed in every which way, ultimately leaving behind their marks in the form of forehead lines, crow’s feet, and seemingly endless other lines and wrinkles.

Dysport works to address the causes of these dynamic signs of aging. At UCI Plastic Surgery, we can use Dysport for the correction of common concerns, such as:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines (glabellar lines)
  • Forehead lines

If you are on the fence about which injectable or filler is best for you, we can help provide you with our own professional recommendation during your consultation. Your Costa Mesa plastic surgeon will carefully analyze your face to determine if Dysport is right for you, or if another injectable or filler would be best to address your unique concerns.

How Dysport Works

Dysport works very similarly to Botox. Once your problem lines and wrinkles are identified, your Southern California plastic surgeon will inject the botulinum toxin based solution into the muscle beneath the skin. Over time, the Dysport injection will cause the underlying facial muscle to relax and to soften the intensity of your expressions.

This relaxing of the muscle will not only help to slow and prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming, but it will also improve the appearance of existing marks. To treat other areas of the face—such as the cheeks, mouth, or lips—we recommend combining Dysport with a series of fillers for your best results. Dysport can be paired with dermal fillers offered here at UCI Plastic Surgery, such as Juvéderm® or Restylane®.

Your Dysport treatment should last no longer than half an hour and will not require you to spend any time away from your normal routine for recovery. We strongly advise you to avoid any unnecessary sun exposure for the first few days after your treatment. You should always use sunscreen for protection when outdoors—especially if you just can’t say “no” to a day at the California coast.

You should begin seeing noticeable results within about a week of treatment. Most patients continue to see improvements in their appearance for about 3-6 months. Once you feel the effects of your treatment fading, you can maintain your youthful look with further Dysport injections. Most patients undergoing regular treatments will have about two or three per year.
