Although most people are very familiar with BOTOX® Cosmetic, clients are often surprised to learn that there are other neurotoxin wrinkle treatments available. Dysport® and XEOMIN® are very closely related to BOTOX®, and generally, they treat the same conditions. We have extensive experience with all three products and can guide you in choosing the best treatment for your needs.

BOTOX® VERSUS DYSPORT®, WHICH IS BETTER?
For years, my patients have asked; Botox® vs Dysport®, Dysport® vs Botox®. My personal alternative to Botox® is Dysport®! While BOTOX® has been FDA approved for cosmetic use since 2002, Dysport® was approved in 2009 but has been in wide use in Europe for many years prior to 2009. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, millions of non-surgical aesthetics & cosmetic procedures take place in the U.S. Since 2008, over 80% of these represented procedures use products like Dysport®. Competition in this “in-demand” area has been driving the interest in products like Dysport®.
Similarities and Differences. The most notable difference between Dysport® and BOTOX is that Dysport® seems to diffuse a bit more. For this reason, injectors must be highly trained when injecting areas such as the brow, as the effects of the product may spread. This quality makes Dysport® an excellent option for broader areas of wrinkling such as forehead furrows. Also a great choice for hands, feet & armpit areas to control excessive sweating.
Dysport® dosage is also different from BOTOX®, and for some individuals, the results emerge more quickly and last longer. Thomas uses the highest concentration available to ensure greatest efficacy and pin point accuracy.
HOW MUCH DOES DYSPORT® COST PER UNIT?
Dysport® price versus Botox Price is not as straight forward as one would think. Although Botox® costs approximately $10/unit, the DYSPORT® cost per unit is $3.00. But that doesn’t mean Botox® is 70% higher in price. It comes down to “how many units of dysport® per area” are required. The Botox® frown lines in a women usually require 20 units of Botox. Comparing Botox® vs Dysport®, the same area requires 50 units of Dysport®. As it turns out Dysport® is approximately 20-25% less expensive.
