Botulinum Toxin

Dysport™ is a simple non-surgical procedure that temporarily paralyzes targeted muscles to soften lines and restore a more youthful expression to your face.

Dysport™ is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Dysport™ is a botulinum toxin type A and is a temporary nerve toxin that targets underlying muscles which contract to form wrinkles and creases. Treatment consists of tiny injections containing botulinum type A, such as Dysport™. Treatment is performed in office and generally takes about 10-20 minutes. Dysport™ is fast acting and effects, on average, are noticed 2-3 days after treatment. Dysport™ treatments may last up to 4 months. After Dysport™ is administered you will be able to go about your normal daily routine immediately after your treatment.

Dysport™ and Botox™ are very comparable but made by different companies. They have the same basic structure by blocking communication between targeted muscles and the nerves so that muscle contraction is reduced. When being treated by Dysport™ you will notice that Dysport™ diffuses over a wider area from the area being injected than Botox™. The advantage of using Dysport™ is that you can achieve a more natural look while treating broader areas. In addition to cosmetic purposes, Dysport™, like Botox™ can also be used to treat a variety of medical conditions such as chronic muscle spasms in hemifacial spasm or blepharospasm.

When comparing Botox™ and Dysport™, you will discover that the price per unit is higher for Botox™. However, the two products end up being very comparable in cost because less units of Botox™ are administered in comparison to the number of Dysport™ units administered for an average treatment. In fact, Dysport™ is slightly less expensive yet the net effect is essentially the same, or in some cases, better.
