Are you trying to find an injectable that provides natural-looking results yet can handle deep dynamic wrinkles in your forehead? Are you looking for something that will begin to reveal results right away? Dysport is the friendly alternative that can help you achieve a friendly, youthful glow.
At Self Care LA, our goal is to offer a highly curated, customized list of treatments that we can provide to our patients with the highest level of excellence. Part of the active team, as well as our medical director and owner, Dr. Kothakota, understands that every patient has unique needs and may not have a clear direction on how to address them. That's why our Santa Monica Dysport option is just one of several safe, innovative, and effective treatments that we can provide to our patients as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
Dysport is an injectable neuromodulator that contains abobotulinumtoxinA, a form of botulinum toxin type A, that is designed to address dynamic frown lines by creating temporary paralysis in the tiny facial muscles of the forehead. Dysport is unique due to its distinct manufacturing process, which results in exceptionally small molecules and a thin consistency. This specific formulation not only yields remarkably natural-looking outcomes but also facilitates rapid dispersion, delivering visible results in as little as two days.
While Dysport and Botox are both injectable treatments commonly used to address forehead lines and frown lines between the eyebrows, and they share a common active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, there are distinct differences.
While Botox is known for its denser formulation, which offers stability, some patients feel that it can result in a somewhat "frozen" or less expressive appearance. On the other hand, Dysport has a more diluted composition, which consistently delivers a softer and exceptionally natural, wrinkle-free appearance. The thinner solution also allows for swifter distribution within the treatment area, often providing quicker results on average compared to Botox.
See a refined, softer, more pleasantly neutral expression in the mirror every morning instead of harsh frown lines. Neuromodulators can provide a more youthful, smooth look between your eyebrows, along with a boost of confidence. Our Santa Monica Dysport clients can:
Am I a candidate for Dysport?
Patients who want to address glabellar lines with a simple, in-office, minimally invasive procedure are most likely great candidates for treatment. Our Dysport patients are typically over 25 years old, and it's great for both women and men. If you've ever had a severe reaction using Botox, you should consult with your provider prior to using Dysport.
We are passionate about complete customization for our patients. At a consultation, we'll learn about your specific aesthetic and self-care needs to ensure your treatment plan will be exactly what you're looking for. If we decide that Dysport is the best option for you, we will create a personalized and comprehensive plan for treatment, including all preparation and post-treatment instructions.
Dysport appointments typically only take about 10-15 minutes and are fairly simple. Your skin will be prepared, numbing cream will be applied, and then the serum will be skillfully injected into the treatment area by one of our trained aesthetic medical professionals.
Mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites could occur for some patients, but ice and sleeping with your head elevated will help speed recovery. Following injections with Dysport Santa Monica patients do not usually require any downtime. Patients should see some results within just one to two days, which will last on average between four to six months.
At Self Care LA, we want to ensure our patients receive high-quality, completely personalized aesthetic care in a friendly and luxurious environment. Led by Dr. Bharat Kothakota, or "Dr. K," and staffed by some of the most skilled and proficient PAs in Santa Monica, our team is genuinely excited to see our patients achieve their aesthetic goals.
Possible minor side effects such as swelling, redness, or bruising can occur with the treatment but typically resolve on their own in a few days. Allergic reactions are rare but possible.
No, Dysport is not permanent, and most patients see results for about four to six months.
While many patients opt for follow-up treatments once they start to see results fade, it is best to wait at least 90 days between each treatment.
No anesthesia or sedation is used with Dysport, so you will be free to drive and resume your daily activities immediately following the procedure.
The total cost of Dysport will depend on how much of the product is needed to address your individual concerns.
