Dysport is a fast-acting injectable neuromodulator, similar to Botox®, that is proven to help smooth the frown lines between the eyebrows.
Both Dysport and Botox are types of neurotoxins that block muscle contractions.
While both injections are sometimes used to treat spasms from neurological disorders and other medical conditions, they’re more widely used as facial wrinkle treatments. They’re both derived from botulinum toxins, which are safe in small amounts.

WHO SHOULD GET DYSPORT
We offer Dysport in Northern California as an outpatient procedure at Allegro MedSpa.
If it is your first time visiting us in Santa Rosa, California, for BOTOX, you can elect to have Dysport at the same appointment as your consultation. We will ask you to make various facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, which will allow us to mark where the injections are to be placed. We will cleanse the skin will and inject Dysport under the skin using a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help decrease swelling and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it is generally not needed. Dysport injections in Santa Rosa typically take about 10–15 minutes, after which you can get back to your normal day almost right away.
What to Expect
Here’s what to expect when undergoing Dysport in Northern California.
After your treatment
After the Dysport injection, you can return to your usual schedule, but strenuous activities, including exercise, should be postponed for at least a day. We will ask you to avoid yoga and hot yoga for 24 hours, sleep with your head propped up for the first night, and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas.
The treated areas could have some swelling or bruising for a couple of days.
Usually, it takes about 4–7 days before the full effects of Dysport become visible. The results generally last 3–6 months.
You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule a follow-up appointment at Allegro MedSpa.

How much does Dysport cost?
The total cost for Dysport in northern California will depend on how much product we use. During your consultation, we will form your personal treatment plan before we can estimate your costs. Dysport can produce excellent results when performed by a skilled injector, but it can be unsafe if performed by someone without training, which is why it is better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections.
How long will my results last?
Improvements from Dysport can last up to four months. Most patients schedule a visit every season to sustain their results, but you may come back sooner. If get Dysport while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may schedule visits further apart.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers (like Dysport) and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm® and Restylane®) are both treatments that improve the appearance of wrinkles and smooth fine lines. Dysport relaxes overused small facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines between the eyebrows, Crow’s feet (in the outer corner’s of the eyes), forehead wrinkles, and smile lines. Dermal fillers add volume under the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease fine lines throughout your face.
What’s the difference between BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin?
BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin® are brands of injectable wrinkle relaxers that use botulinum toxin (type A). They all relax facial muscles to reduce dynamic wrinkles, but each formula is designed to suit specific areas and needs. There are subtle differences between them, including the amount in each dose, treatment spread, and length of results. We will choose the best one to achieve your goals.
Is DYSPORT safe?
When applied properly, Dysport rarely causes any complications. With that said, it is important to choose someone who has experience and training in handling this medication. A skilled injector will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected.
