Dysport is a cosmetic injection with FDA approval to correct moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, also known as the glabellar lines or angry 11s. While Dysport is FDA-approved for frown lines, its off-label uses also extend to other dynamic wrinkles on the face, such as the forehead lines and crow’s feet. With a few strategic injections, we can diminish the unwanted facial wrinkles, making you look significantly younger.
How does Dysport work?
Dysport is a neuromodulator, i.e., a type of cosmetic injection that can temporarily relax targeted muscles. Dysport is made of botulinum toxin type a, which can temporarily block communications between nerve endings and muscles. Dynamic wrinkles appear because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to produce expressions, such as laughing and frowning. When injected into targeted facial muscles, Dysport in San Carlos relaxes them and softens the associated dynamic wrinkles, taking several years off your face.

We personalize the dose to ensure soft and natural-looking results — no frozen expressions.
