Del Mar Botox and Dysport

Botulinum Type A injections (which include Botox Cosmetic®, and Dysport®) are by far the most popular cosmetic treatments nationwide, due to their long safety profile and effectiveness at fighting dynamic wrinkles and lines of expression and the power to truly rejuvenate one’s appearance. They work by temporarily preventing communication from the nerves to targeted muscles of expression, causing them to relax, thereby reducing dynamic lines and preventing their progression. Areas commonly treated with Botulinum Type A injections are:

  • Glabellar lines (“elevens” or “frown lines”)
  • Crows feet (wrinkles around the eyes)
  • Bunny lines (vertical lines on the nose)
  • Horizontal forehead creases
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Cobblestone appearance of the chin
  • Platysmal bands of the neck
  • Hyperhydrosis (overactive sweating)

Effects begin after several days and peak in 1 – 2 weeks. Results typically last 2 – 4 months. We are often asked which product works better. Actually, the differences are subtle and aesthetic results depend less on which Botulinum Toxin A product is used and more on how it is applied. Del Mar Aesthetic Clinic is recognized as one of the most experienced Botox providers in the country (Allergan Black Diamond distinction), we apply our clinical expertise to achieve the right balance in softening lines of expression and creating a refreshed appearance, while still maintaining natural-appearing and balanced facial expression.
