Some of the most popular anatomical landmarks for Dysport include the glabella, forehead, and crow’s feet, but did you know that Dysport can be used for more than just the wrinkles on your forehead and around the eyes? Dysport can be injected into various areas of the face and neck for an aesthetically pleasing appearance. These areas include:
The jelly roll is the area located directly below the eyes that creates horizontal wrinkles when smiling. These lines can be smoothed out with just a few units of Dysport.
As cute as the bunny scrunch sounds, this is an area of wrinkle to avoid. Bunny scrunch is the area on the upper nose that creates horizontal lines when squinting.
Lip Flip/Perioral lines
This is becoming an increasingly popular area for Dysport as it relaxes the upper lip muscle, preventing it from flipping under when smiling and giving it a slightly larger, flipped-outward appearance. It also prevents the lips from pursing together, creating vertical lines also known as perioral lines.
Do your gums show when you smile? This could be due to hyperfunctional lip elevator muscles. Injecting Dysport to this area will help relax the muscle without freezing your smile or limiting the expression around your mouth. By targeting the elevating muscles, you can confidently smile bigger and brighter.
Do your lips naturally draw down in the corner of your mouth at rest? This could be due to an overactive Depressor Anguli Oris (DAO) muscle. A few units of Dysport help by temporarily relaxing the downward pulling action of the DAO muscle, preventing future marionette lines.
When a neuromodulator is injected into the jaw muscles, also known as the masseters, the muscles respond by losing some of their bulk, creating a slimming effect on your face. Masseter injections have also been beneficial with clients experiencing pain from TMJ.
Have you been considering a neck lift, but don’t want to commit to the cost and downtime that comes with surgery? Injected into the platysma bands, Dysport helps smooth the bands and decrease the lines on the neck to give the neck a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Let’s see how Dysport can help you!

Allergan strives to be a bold global pharmaceutical company with the vast majority of its products being some of the most popular products on the market and number one in the country. My favorite products come from the Allergan Aesthetics line. These products can accomplish amazing structural foundations and enhancements. My favorites are Voluma, Vollure, Juvéderm Ultra Plus, and Kybella. Let me explain why these have been the best products I have worked with for the past several years of my career.
My favorite is Voluma and Kybella. Voluma can accomplish results that no other filler in the Allergan aesthetics line can accomplish. It can rebuild and change facial structure non-surgically. Voluma has a large amount of g-prime which supports volume loss and structure in the face, especially in the cheeks, temples, jawline, and chin. It has been known to create a beautiful, desired heart-shaped facial structure and is long-lasting for up to 12 to 18 months in most areas of the face. Also, it can help soften lines as it rebuilds facial structure in the temples and cheeks by pulling up in the surrounding area of the skin to reduce laugh lines and help reduce jowls, especially when introduced into the jawline via cannula. In women chin structure can be redefined with Voluma creating the point of the heart or in Men it can be used to create a more masculine chiseled chin/jawline, filling in butt chins, and chin dimples. Though probably controversial in a blog about favorite Allergan products I also love Sculptra which is not part of the Allergan line. My favorite combination is using Voluma to get the results I need now but a few weeks later to introduce Sculptra in the temples, cheeks, and jawline to achieve the longevity I want later.

Kybella can also help define the facial structure in the jawline by reducing the submental fat pad, also known as the double chin so that your natural jawline becomes visible again and reappears as the fat cells are permanently destroyed. Kybella is very versatile and has also been used to reduce the fat around the belly, inner thighs, and bra fat regions which are very stubborn areas to reduce in other ways with traditional methods of exercise and diet.
My last two favorite products from Allergan are Vollure and Juvéderm Ultra Plus. After redefining facial structure with Voluma and Kybella, Vollure and Juvéderm Ultra Plus can be used to enhance, fine-tune and airbrush other areas of concern. My favorite is using Vollure for natural plump lips and to reduce any remaining volume loss in the laugh lines, also known as the nasal labial folds. Juvéderm Ultra Plus is also a favorite of mine because it’s very malleable and easy to use to create lush juicy lips with various techniques. It can be used to keep your natural lip shape while enhancing them, correct asymmetry and a trend called ‘keyhole design’ for the lips creates a very desired look in young Americans today. I also love to use Juvéderm Ultra Plus in the laugh lines if more volume replacement is needed and cannot be accomplished enough with Voluma alone and it is great to use in the marionette lines for a smooth defined look.
