What is DYSPORT?

DYSPORT in San Diego

Botox® is no longer the only wrinkle eraser available to San Diego residents. Dysport, made by the makers of Restylane®, is another injectable that smoothes crow’s feet, forehead lines and vertical frown lines using a variation of the active ingredient in Botox.

While Dysport has been used in Europe for over 20 years, it was approved by the FDA in April 2009 for use in the US. Since then, Dysport has proven to be as safe and effective as Botox and is quickly gaining popularity among providers and their patients. If you are interested in getting some of the best injections of Dysport San Diego has, Lanoi Cosmetic Dermatology is the place to go.

Best Uses

DYSPORT Treatment Areas

DYSPORT works best in the upper third of the face: frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal bands of wrinkles across the forehead, and crow’s feet at the corners of the eye. DYSPORT can also be used to soften or erase lines around the mouth, to sculpt the face by raising one or both eyebrows, as well as to smooth vertical and horizontal neck lines by relaxing the platysmal (neck) muscles.

DYSPORT injections can be used to treat:

  • Frown lines in the forehead
  • Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
  • Lipstick lines around the mouth
  • Neck
  • Excessive perspiration (underarms)


Many facial wrinkles are the result of nerve cells that have been conditioned to tell muscles to contract. Because we so often contract muscles in the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth, the nerves begin telling the muscles to remain contracted. DYSPORT® blocks these signals from the nerves, allowing the muscles to relax and smoothing the wrinkles that they cause. Habitual muscle contractions are blocked, but after a short time the nerve extends new branches to the muscle that allow for voluntary muscle contraction, so you don’t lose expressiveness in treated areas.

The key to successful DYSPORT® treatment is precise injection into the muscles requiring treatment, which depends on the skill of the injector. Initially, physicians were reluctant to use DYSPORT® around the mouth where ‘static’ wrinkles predominate and where injections would be needed so close to muscles that are needed for talking, eating and kissing. However, after more than a decade of experience with DYSPORT® procedures, the technique has been perfected to a higher skill level. Tiny DYSPORT®injections into certain oral muscles can safely prevent the mouth from creasing the skin and forming the deep vertical lines caused by habitual over-pursing. Dr. Maria Bonilla has extensive experience treating the lower third of the face and neck areas, which require a great deal of finesse in technique.
