What is Dysport™?

Dysport™ is a prescription injection that, like Botox®, reduces frown lines and other wrinkles.

How does Dysport™ work?

Dysport™ is injected directly into the overactive facial muscles, relaxing the muscles for three to six months. This process smooths out lines and creases, and gives your face a more youthful, less stern and less tired expression.

What is the difference between DYSPORT™ and BOTOX COSMETIC®?

Both Botox® and Dysport™ help reduce wrinkles by relaxing overactive muscles.  However, they have completely different formulations and offer different benefits. Dysport™ has a faster onset and a greater field of action.  In contrast, Botox® tends to remain more localized, allowing for greater precision but possibly requiring more injections. Dr. Selene, who regularly works with both products, will choose the one that is best for you.

What is the cost of DYSPORT™?

Both Dysport™ and Botox® injections are measured and charged by the number of units used. Dr. Selene will customize your treatment to provide the best effect for your specific muscles.

Is DYSPORT™ safe?

Yes! Dysport™ has been available in Europe, Asia, and South America for more than ten years. Dysport™ was developed in the United Kingdom in the early 1990′s to successfully treat a number of neurological and ophthalmic conditions. Its use was further expanded to treat a wide variety of neuromuscular disorders, for which it is licensed in over 60 countries.
