Unlock the Power of Neurotoxins

Botox and Dysport are popular cosmetic treatments that use purified proteins to relax the muscles responsible for creating facial wrinkles. They are FDA-approved neurotoxins administered through a series of small injections into the treatment area. Botox and Dysport are commonly used to treat wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. With Botox and Dysport, you can unlock the power of youth and regain your confidence!

The Science Behind
Botox & Dysport

What is the science behind our wrinkle treatment in San Diego? Botox and Dysport work by temporarily blocking the signals that the nerves send to the muscles responsible for creating wrinkles. The active ingredient in these neuromodulators, botulinum toxin type A, inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that stimulates muscle contraction. As a result, the muscles cannot contract as strongly or as frequently, which leads to a reduction in wrinkles. The effects of Botox and Dysport typically last for several months, after which the body gradually metabolizes the proteins.

Prevent or Delay
Expression Lines

Expression lines, also known as dynamic wrinkles, are caused by repetitive muscle movements that occur when we make facial expressions. While Botox and Dysport are most commonly used to treat existing wrinkles, they can also be used preventatively to delay the formation of expression lines. By relaxing the muscles responsible for creating these movements, Botox and Dysport can prevent the skin from creasing and eventually developing wrinkles. Starting Botox or Dysport as part of our wrinkle treatment in San Diego can help maintain a smooth, youthful complexion for longer.

Benefits of Botox & Dysport:

  • Non-surgical treatment with no downtime
  • Quick and relatively painless procedure
  • Customizable treatment plan to achieve desired results
  • Proven to be safe and effective

  • Minimal side effects

Botox or Dysport:
What’s Right for Me?

Whether Botox or Dysport is right for you depends on your needs and goals. While both treatments use the same active ingredient and are similar in effectiveness and safety, there may be some differences in the onset and duration of their effects. At South Coast MedSpa, our experienced injectors can guide you in choosing the best treatment option based on factors such as the treatment area, your medical history, and your desired results.

Your Complete Botox & Dysport Experience

To prepare for Botox or Dysport wrinkle treatment in San Diego, avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements for at least a week before your appointment. This includes aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids. We recommend arriving with a clean, makeup-free face and informing your injector of any medical conditions or allergies.

During your Botox or Dysport session, you’ll meet an experienced injector who will examine your facial muscles and determine the appropriate injection sites. The injections are quick and relatively painless, and the session typically lasts 15-30 minutes. Afterward, you can return to your normal activities with no downtime.

Side Effects
Botox and Dysport are generally safe and well-tolerated, with minimal side effects. However, some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites may occur. Headaches, nausea, and flu-like symptoms are rare but can happen. These effects are temporary and resolve within a few days.

Another advantage is that there is no downtime or recovery process after Botox or Dysport wrinkle treatment in San Diego. You can immediately return to normal activities and even apply makeup to the treated area. However, we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise, alcohol, and blood-thinning medications for the first 24 hours to minimize the risk of bruising.

You can expect the results of your Botox or Dysport treatment within a few days to a week after the session. The effects typically last 3-4 months, after which the muscles gradually regain their normal function.

To maintain your desired results, we recommend follow-up treatments every 3-4 months. With repeated treatments, some patients may see longer-lasting effects. Our experienced injectors can create a personalized treatment plan to help you maintain your aesthetic goals.
