Dysport in Indianapolis | Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?
The difference between Botox and Dysport lies within the formulation of the medications. Both formulas contain botulinum toxin A, and Dysport is much more diluted than Botox. This allows Dysport to spread faster and further, so it’s excellent for larger areas, like the forehead.
How long does Dysport last in the forehead?
How long Dysport lasts in the forehead varies between patients, though typically results last 4–5 months. Patients can prolong results with good skincare and sunscreen habits. Ultimately, your body chemistry plays a major role in how long Dysport lasts.
Are Dysport and Botox interchangeable?
No, Dysport and Botox are not interchangeable. The formulas are different, the impacts are different, and the dosing is different.
Are there any side effects from Dysport?
The most common side effects from Dysport include nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, and slight swelling and redness at the injection site. Like any medical procedure, additional risks are associated, though rare.
How much does Dysport cost?
How much Dysport costs depends on several factors. Per-unit cost is determined by your healthcare professional and each patient will need a personalized treatment, so the amount of product used can’t be estimated until a consultation.
How many injections of Dysport do I need?
