Botox® (manufactured by Allergan) has been FDA-approved for wrinkle-reduction since 2002.  It is a highly effective product that reduces wrinkles between the eyes (glabella), in the forehead, and in the crows’ feet (smile lines adjacent to the eyes).

Dysport® (manufactured by Medicis) was approved by the FDA for wrinkle reduction in April 2009.  Dysport is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), in the forehead and crows' feet (smile lines adjacent to the eyes). It is essentially a variation on Botox with a very similar set of properties.   

 

 Are You Confused?

Botox® Vs. Dysport®

 Neuromodulator choices and their cost:

  When it comes to Neuromodulators (Botox/Dysport) the most important thing for you to know is, "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!" If you are the one that is always looking for a better deal then "Beware" as it is not advisable when dealing with injectables and your health. Most likely the lowest or (2 for 1) deals are non-FDA approved products and/or they were purchased outside of the United States and in some instances you may even come across a dishonest injector who over dilutes the product and injects half the amount you actually paid for. Therefore, your results last half the time it should. One way to know for sure if you are getting the real thing is to educate yourself about the product and the manufacturer. For example, Allergan (Botox) has a program called "Brilliant Distinctions" and with every treatment you get that product has a lot/serial number on it and you use that number to redeem points that gives you cash discounts towards future treatments. If the product is not from Allergan then you will not be eligible for these discounts and promotions. Dysport has a similar promotions which require lot/serial numbers to qualify for the discounts and promotions. With the economy situation it is understandable that you are going to look for ways to save your money, but when it comes to your body and health it is just not worth it.

What is the difference between Botox® and Dysport®?

Exactly how the two wrinkle-relaxers differ is not fully understood. Initial reports suggest that Dysport may act quicker. Botox takes three to five days to work, while Dysport seems to work within one to two days. Like Botox Cosmetic, Dysport is an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A. Your plastic surgery specialist will inject small amounts of the toxin into specific wrinkle-causing muscles, paralyzing them. There may be some downsides to Dysport. Botox manufacturer Allergan points out that Dysport may be more likely to cause antibody formation. The body develops antibodies when it recognizes a foreign invader and attacks it. If you develop antibodies to Dysport, your body neutralizes the toxin, potentially preventing it from working. (PSP Plastic Surgery Practice article January 2010 issue)

How much does Botox® and Dysport® Cost?

The cost of Dysport compared to Botox is Dysport is approximately 1/3 the cost of Botox; however, it is also 1/3 the strength. This means you will need about three times as many units of Dysport to get the same results as you would with one unit of Botox. As a result, the costs of Dysport treatment will likely end up being similar to Botox. If the cost is more than you can pay all at once, ask us about payment plan options. When shopping around you will see Botox cost ranges from $10/unit to $16/unit with each treatment area requiring 15-30units. Dysport cost ranges from $4/unit to $8/unit with each treatment area requiring 50-75units.

Our prices are $4-5/unit for Dysport

and $10-11/unit for Botox.

 

The Bottom Line is...     

The aesthetic world has become very competitive and the price ranges only encourage the shopper to hunt for better bargains and this has resulted in some very advanced, talented and artistic Plastic Surgery Injectors to lower their prices in order to draw the aesthetic business shoppers to their practice. With this in mind there are also practices that have resorted to purchasing the black market or internationally purchased non-FDA products to compete with the lower cost range but maintain their profit margin on the higher end. The only one that gets the dishonest, potentially life threatening end of this deal is you…. "The Bargain Shopper" The best thing you could do for yourself is research and educate yourself and find a reputable practice that you can trust and this should be your priority over saving a dollar. Remember, we are talking about your body, your health and......"Your Life".
