Dysport is newer in the U.S. (on the market since only April, 2009), but it has been a popular treatment for fine lines and wrinkles in Europe and elsewhere for several years already. Although the results it produces are similar to other more known botulinum toxin type A proteins on the market , there are some slight differences.
Dysport mirrors BOTOX in cost even though Dysport does require more units per treatment . It has actually been found to spread a bit more during the injection, which can be beneficial when treating larger areas such as the forehead or armpit (to eliminate excessive sweating).
Another great advantage of Dysport is that it has shown to take effect faster than it’s competition. This benefit makes it a great solution if you want to soften fine lines and wrinkles just in time for an upcoming special event!
