Dysport® in San Francisco
Dysport® is an FDA-approved injectable used to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the brow and forehead. Made from a purified version of the protein found in botulinum toxin, the injectable blocks nerve impulses, weakening muscles to relax wrinkles and give the face a rejuvenated look. It temporarily paralyzes the muscles, allowing the surface skin to smooth over for a more youthful and attractive appearance.
Like BOTOX®, Dysport® contains botulinum toxin type A, but in a slightly different formulation. After a week, you should see visible changes from the neuromodulator, with results lasting three to four months.
At Dermatology Medical Group of San Francisco, our board-certified dermatologists and dedicated team offer Dysport®, BOTOX®, and Kybella® injectables for wrinkle relaxation and resolving a double chin.
Who Should Get Dysport®?
Men and women who wish to soften their forehead wrinkles and the lines around their eyes should consider Dysport® to achieve a youthful complexion. Our highly skilled injectors will consult with you to determine if the injectable treatment is well-suited to address your cosmetic concerns.
Our Dysport® Injection Technique
To achieve optimal results with Dysport®, your injector must administer the treatment with precision, expertise, and care. Each of our board-certified dermatologists has advanced training and extensive experience in customizing your experience. Before administering the injections, they will apply a topical analgesic cream. Then, they will use a tiny needle to inject Dysport® into the targeted muscles on your forehead, between your brows, and around your eyes. Most patients find the treatment highly tolerable.
What Happens After Dysport®
You may experience some swelling and redness around the injection sites. This typical effect will typically dissipate within an hour of the treatment. After the injections, you may immediately return to work and your daily activities. Patients usually see a noticeable improvement with softened lines and wrinkles within a week of the treatment, with benefits lasting three to four months.

Your total price tag will depend on how many units of Dysport® are necessary to provide your ideal results. During your initial consultation, we will create a customized treatment plan and estimate your cost. Ask about current specials on Dysport® at DMGSF and the payment methods we accept.
What’s the difference between BOTOX® and Dysport®?
BOTOX® and Dysport® are chemically similar injectable treatments used to correct dynamic wrinkles. After a Dysport® treatment, patients typically see results a little bit sooner. Also, Dysport® has longer-lasting benefits compared to other wrinkle relaxers and is better for more extensive treatment areas. We will help you choose between BOTOX® and Dysport® during your consultation depending on your specific needs and goals.
Should I get Dysport® or a dermal filler?
A neuromodulator like Dysport® corrects dynamic wrinkles from repetitive facial expressions like smiling, laughing, and squinting. Dysport® relaxes facial muscles to reduce etched lines.
In contrast, dermal fillers provide underlying volume to address wrinkles and lines resulting. During your initial consultation, we will ask about your concerns and goals to help determine if a wrinkle relaxer like Dysport®, a dermal filler, or a combination of the two will deliver your best results.
Can I combine Dysport® with other treatments?
At Dermatology Medical Group of San Francisco, we offer several complementary cosmetic treatments to boost your Dysport® benefits. Based on your concerns and goals, your individualized plan may include Dysport® injections, an injectable filler for static wrinkles in your lips and cheeks, and a skin treatment like microdermabrasion or a chemical peel.
How often should I get Dysport® treatments?
The effects of Dysport® may last for as long as four months. During your consultation, we will recommend a follow-up treatment regimen to maintain your results.
