What are BOTOX and Dysport?
Anytime you look at your face in a mirror, are you distressed about wrinkles and creases on your forehead and around your eyes? Frequently called dynamic lines, these skin concerns occur due to repetitive facial expressions, including squinting, frowning, and smiling. As women and men become more mature, these wrinkles and lines ultimately become more pronounced and can make them appear tired. With the use of BOTOX Cosmetic and/or Dysport, it is now possible to temporarily minimize the formation of moderate to severe forehead creases, Crow's feet, and frown lines. Both BOTOX and Dysport function to temporarily block the facial muscles that cause those contractions, allowing the overlying skin to recover on its own. At Fontaine MD, our team is proud to offer BOTOX and Dysport wrinkle relaxer treatments as a nonsurgical aesthetic option to help patients obtain a younger-looking, refreshed outcome. Our team invites you to get in touch with our facility in San Diego, CA, to further explore wrinkle relaxer treatments!

Do I qualify for BOTOX or Dysport?
Individuals who desire a nonsurgical option to relax frown lines, Crow's feet, or forehead wrinkles may be excellent candidates for BOTOX and Dysport services at Fontaine MD. These treatments can be a great aesthetic option if you are bothered by noticeable "11" lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) that give you a fatigued or older facial appearance. Recently, BOTOX Cosmetic has gained favor with younger populations, as well. Though younger adults between the ages of 20 – 30 may not yet notice the signs of aging, BOTOX may be utilized as a preventive treatment to fend off the natural process of aging by temporarily minimizing or delaying the proliferation of age-related lines.
How are wrinkles treated?
As we age, we develop wrinkles due to various factors, including skin laxity from loss of collagen and elastin, loss of the underlying supporting tissue, including bone and fat, recurrent facial expressions, sun damage, smoking, and poor hydration. At Fontaine MD, we have a variety of treatment options to treat wrinkles, also known as rhytides. We use neuromodulators such as BOTOX and Dysport to decrease facial muscle contractions that are causing wrinkles. We also use fillers to restore lost volume and lasers and radiofrequency to remove fine lines and wrinkles. Learn more about your treatment options by clicking on the following links:
Fontaine MD Reviews
I don’t give out 5 stars that often and especially to doctors.Had my fair share theses last two years having just recovered from throat cancer. Anyway , I found Dr.Fontaine to be very down to earth and friendly which gave me a lot of confidence in him. I visited the facility to get the health check for anti aging and living forever pills . After a full review of my blood test it was decided more tests were needed. I really did not expect to hear from him much after that as my prognosis was not what I expected.To the contrary he followed up with e-mails of advice, another tele conference to go through more test and we have a plan in place to fight the normal aging issues of cholesterol, body fat etc while I deal with the extra tests I needed.The simple fact is that the blood test that Dr. Fontaine performed on me were more detailed than the ones your primary care physician does. Theses test found a problem that I probably would not have found for years and maybe by then it would have been too late. In short , probably saved my life. Wow
I cannot say enough amazing things about this place. Doctor Fontaine and the other amazing staff create the most welcoming, comfortable environment. They truly care about you and the results of their patients. Will forever recommend this place to anyone.
I can’t thank Dr.Fontaine enough! Menopause is certainly a subject that is not talked about enough it changes lives and for some it destroys them. I was at a point in my life during menopause where I was ready to die, that’s how bad I felt, only six weeks later after Dr Fontaines program based on MY blood, MY hormones! Not a generalized version for every woman! 🤬WTF is that? I feel better than I have since 2017 which is when I began menopause. Why menopause is not talked about and not covered by insurance for this kind of treatment is beyond my comprehension but I am grateful for people like Dr. Fontaine and his staff! Life changer. If you are on the fence, do it!!!
Okay so I have been doing Botox and fillers for years. I have never considered doing fillers for my under eyes as I was always nervous to. But naturally with age things have started to droop. Finally I decided to bite the bullet and go in for a consultation. I met nurse Sam and after a detailed consultation I felt enough confidence to jump forward with the treatment. Sam made the entire experience fun, comfortable and educational. Not to mention the results are EXCEPTIONAL. I was afraid of looking fake or overfilled which Sam ensured me that I would not and that I would only look refreshed. Everything she said from the start to finish of what I should expect was on point! Her skill level of technique was so advanced and she made the treatment easy. I couldn’t be happier with my results and my overall experience. Sam isn’t just a nurse, she becomes your friend who will make you look and feel your best. Can’t wait for her to treat me again.
Dr. Fontaine has been amazing! I have seen several similar doctors in his field prior to seeing Dr. Fontaine, he is by far the best. I highly recommend Dr. Fontaine and his staff is also very professional and knowledgeable. Two Thumbs Up!!

BOTOX and Dysport FAQ
What is BOTOX/Dysport?
BOTOX and Dysport are both neuromodulators with similar indications. They are injectable medications that temporarily paralyze specific muscles, leading to benefits such as fewer wrinkles. While they can treat other conditions, BOTOX and Dysport are best known for reducing moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines in adults.
Will my results look natural?
BOTOX and Dysport treatments provided by Dr. Fontaine usually look very natural. The result is a more relaxed and rejuvenated look. These procedures may give you a more youthful, rested appearance. If you’re concerned about overly dramatic results, a smaller dose can be used initially and adjusted with further treatments, as needed.
Does BOTOX/Dysport hurt?
BOTOX and Dysport are injected with tiny needles. Most people experience only mild and brief discomfort. If you’re concerned about pain, you may take a pain reliever, such as Tylenol, beforehand. Avoid any medication that thins the blood, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, which can increase the risk of bruising. Ice can be applied during the procedure as well if needed.
How long do BOTOX/Dysport injections last?
Once injected, these products gradually begin working. Results may start to appear within 48 hours, with full results noticeable within a week or two. While results vary based on a variety of factors, results for both BOTOX and Dysport usually last about three months.
How many injections will I need?
Your ideal number of injections depends on factors such as your treatment goals and the current state of your skin, and the number of muscles you have that are creating the wrinkles. Before your treatment, Dr. Fontaine discusses the specifics with you and recommends a treatment plan. Each patient is treated individually and given the amount they need to achieve the best results. *Individual results may vary.
