Like Botox Cosmetic, Dysport is a botulinum toxin. It was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in the USA in April 2009. It also has a history of use in other countries since 1991. First approved for aesthetic use outside the U.S. was in 2001. Dysport has steadily gained in popularity around the world ever since.

Like Botox, Dysport temporarily immobilizes the muscles that cause facial wrinkles. Dysport diffuses a bit farther than Botox from the injection point: one to three centimeters compared to Botox’s one centimeter. This means that fewer injections are needed
About 3 days after the injection, Dysport’s results begin to appear.
With Dysport containing less protein than Botox, the body breaks it down slower than with Botox. The jury is still out as to whether Dysport lasts longer than Botox. However, most injections last anywhere from four to six months.
Just like with Botox or any needle injection therapy, side effects may include bruising. Other related but less common side effects are headaches and in rare events, drooping eyelids or eyebrows which can easily be corrected. In general, after the treatment, there will be some reddening and swelling in the treated area.
Dysport is FDA approved and is as safe as Botox Cosmetic. Millions of patients around the world have been injected with Dysport.
The advantage is in the speed the injections take effect. Dysport could act faster. Botox typically takes 3-7 days, Dysport 1-2 days to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines.
The cost depends on how many units are needed based on the treatment sites. The number of units injected can depend on the number of areas treated and your goals. The procedure as well as the cost will be discussed with you at the time of your complimentary consult.
