Dysport Los Angeles
Like Botox, Dysport is used to treat the signs of aging. Though approved in the United States in April 2009, Dysport has a history of use in other countries since 1991. First approved for aesthetic use outside the U.S. in 2001, Dysport has steadily gained popularity around the world. Today Dysport is marketed and sold for aesthetic use in 36 countries (as of October 2009).
Currently Dysport is an injection treatment that competes with Botox, and is often used for the treatment of frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). Patients can typically see an improvement in their frown lines within about 4-7 days of having the treatment. The longevity of the results varies, depending on the individual, with some people seeing results that last from 3-8 months.
Dysport acts as a muscle relaxant in the areas of the face that are treated, thereby preventing those areas from tensing and creating lines and wrinkles. The treatment is effective for lines and wrinkles that are considered moderate to severe. . Most patients that opt for Dysport are adults under the age of 65 who are seeking a temporary treatment for lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows.
Dysport in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills
As with all such treatments and procedures, there are minor risks and side effects. In some cases, individuals have mild side effects, including headaches or slight swelling or bruising around the area of injection. In treatments that take place around the eyes, patients may very rarely experience temporary drooping of eyelids. Dr. Behroozan is one of the most qualified and sought-after doctors for these procedures because he is highly experienced and respected for his contribution to the field.
The Dermatology Institute of Southern California has two offices for your convenience. One is located in Santa Monica and the other in Beverly Hills. Both practices specialize in providing advanced dermatology treatments, care and procedures for the entire Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills area, in addition to the West Hollywood, West Los Angeles, Brentwood, Malibu, Marina Del Rey, Pacific Palisades, Hollywood, Playa Vista, Bel Air, and Culver City areas.
How is Dysport Different from Botox?
Botox and Dysport are both derived from a pure form of the botulinum A toxin. When injected into the skin they temporarily relax targeted muscles to fade wrinkles. The results of Dysport are noticed in 2-5 days as opposed to 4-7 days for Botox. Dysport is composed of a diluted solution that spreads more quickly to a wider area so it’s able to treat a broader area with fewer injections. When determining whether Botox or Dysport is best for you, it’s important to seek the assistance of a board-certified dermatologist.
Dysport injection treatments
The Dermatology Institute of Southern California is excited to offer Dysport, an innovative injection used to lift skin and smooth out wrinkles. Akin to Botox, Dysport is a safe and quick procedure that is a popular alternative to cosmetic surgery. It has real results that are natural looking and easy to achieve.
Dysport, also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, is a versatile injection option used for many different purposes. Administered directly into the skin at several strategically placed locations through a fine needle, the Dysport injection procedure is specifically used to target the following conditions:
- Cervical dystonia, an abnormal positioning of the head
- Crow’s feet
- Wrinkles between the eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines
- Sagging necklines
- Wrinkle lines around the mouth
- Wrinkles on the chest
FDA approved, Dysport injections quickly smooth out skin, leaving it firm and youthful looking. It is a quick procedure with no downtime, causing no disruption in a person’s busy daily activities. It is long lasting, and if desired, individuals may repeat treatment after about 3-4 months.
The Dermatology Institute of Southern California takes pride in helping you look and feel great. We believe that everyone should be comfortable in his or her skin. At your consultation, Dr. Behroozan, a board certified dermatologist, will discuss your skin care needs, determining if Dysport can work for you.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Dysport
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a FDA-approved botulinum type A treatment that contains smaller molecules and a more diluted solution than Botox. Dyport’s unique composition allows it to spread more widely when injected. It is ideal for treating areas such as forehead lines and crow’s feet. Dysport allows for fewer injections and provides immediate results.
Which lasts longer, Botox or Dysport?
As a neurotoxin, Dysport relaxes the appearance of wrinkles that occur as facial muscles contract. Clinical studies report that Dysport and Botox results last for 4 months, but some patients experience results that last for up to 8 months. Results vary upon the recipient, injection sites and aesthetic goals.
What are the risks associated with Dysport?
Since the composition of Dysport is diluted, the neurotoxin has the potential to feather when injected, inadvertently softening a nearby muscle. Precise treatment from a board-certified dermatologist is key to preventing feathering and ensuring a natural appearance. Dr. Behroozan is a board-certified Los Angeles dermatologist and Dysport injection specialist. In addition, he completed his advanced fellowship in cosmetic dermatology.
