How Much Does a Dysport Injection Cost?

The cost of Dysport® injections are from $8 per unit (depending on the number of units injected and specials). While Dysport is less expensive than Botox, patients may need an increased amount as it contains a smaller amount of botulinum toxin.

How Long Does it Take to Recover From a Dysport Injection?

There is minimal discomfort and, in most cases, little to no bruising caused by Dysport Injectables. You can apply makeup immediately after your procedure.

How Long Does a Dysport Injection Take?

A Dysport injection typically takes 10-20 minutes.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable treatment made from botulinum toxin type A acts very similarly to Allergan Botox injection. Dysport successfully reduces the facial signs of aging by blocking the nerve signals to the facial muscles, smoothing facial wrinkles and other facial animation lines.

Who is a Dysport Candidate?

As we age, our skin undergoes several changes that increase facial wrinkles and lines. If you would like to reduce these signs of aging and appear younger than Dysport treatments are for you.

Benefits of Dysport Injections

Lasts As Long As Botox
The results of Dysport injections last for months. Results will become prominent a week after the injection and will last as long as 3 -5  months!

Reduce the Signs of Aging
Dysport is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dysport doesn’t just manage the look of existing wrinkles — it can also help prevent new ones from developing. 

Little Downtime
As a nonsurgical procedure, there is little to no downtime. With Dysport, you don’t even need to take a day off. There’s virtually no recovery time required from this procedure, as it’s minimally invasive. Many undergo Dysport injections during their lunch and return to work!

Works When Botox Doesn’t
Over the years, Botox injections can become less effective as your body creates an immune response to the toxin. Luckily, Dysport can work wonders for those suffering from Botox, as there aren’t as many proteins.

Dysport Risks

Like all procedures, Dysport comes with the risk of potential complications. Dr. Mulholland and the SpaMedica plastic surgeons and dermatologists have been performing Dysport injections for years, and the risk of a significant complication is very minimal. Although Dr. Mulholland has not seen most of the risks listed below, these Dysport risks have been reported:

  • ● Muscle weakness near the injection site
  • ● Injection site reactions (bruising, bleeding, pain, redness, or swelling)
  • ● Headache
  • ● Muscle pain or stiffness
  • ● Flu symptoms
  • ● Dizziness
  • ● Nausea

Why Choose SpaMedica for Dysport?

SpaMedica has been specializing in high tech medical skincare for the past 20 years. SpaMedica and Dr. Mulholland have developed several fractional laser programs that can significantly improve the quality, texture and appearance of your skin. They also diminish fine lines, smooth moderate wrinkles, refine enlarged or visible pores and tightening the overall complexion to supplement your Dysport injection treatment.

Furthermore, soft tissue dermal and subcutaneous fillers such as Sculptra, Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Teosyal and Voluma can be used to enhance the appearance and support of your skin.

Different Types of Dysport

There are 4 basic manufactures of Botox Injection, Allergan (Botox), Evolus (Nucieve, Juveau), Galderma (Dysport) and Merz (Xeomine). They all achieve very similar results and use the same injection techniques. Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica carry and can inject all types of Botox Injection, but will determine which will be the best for you.

Nonsurgical Dysport Alternatives

Dermal Fillers, Morpheus8, and fractional Energy based devices, like Fractional RF and CO2 resurfacing, can all reduce lines, wrinkles and tighten skin.

How are Dysport Injections Performed by Dr. Mulholland?

Dysport is similar to Botox Injection in chemical structure with slightly different cross-linking, meaning the number of units to treat a particular area is somewhat different. Once it’s injected, it works almost the same as Botox Injectable and can be used as a substitute. Dysport Injectable treatments take between 10 to 20 minutes. The results last up to 4 months.

How to Prepare for a Dysport Injectable?

Before your Dysport Injection treatment, your SpaMedica consultant will discuss all necessary pre-treatment Do’s and Don’ts during your initial Dysport Injectable consultation.

What to Expect After a Dysport Injection

You can go home or back to work immediately after Dysport injections. While you may experience slight side effects, there’s virtually no recovery time needed.

Dysport Recovery & Timeline

  • Try to utilize your treated muscles for the first 30 minutes after treatment. Frowning, raising eyebrows or squinting will help work the Dysport into your muscles.
  • Do not rub or massage the injection site for 4 hours after your treatment.
  • Avoid facials and saunas for at least 4 hours after your treatment – this will reduce the risk of temporary bruising. 
  • Do not lie down for 4 hours after treatment. This is to avoid the risk of pressure on the treated areas (from your pillow) and to avoid the risk of having the area rubbed accidentally.
  • The results of your treatment can take up to 14 days to take full effect. Please wait until 14 days have passed to assess the results of your Botox Injectable and Dysport procedure.

Best Procedures Paired with Dysport

Combination treatments with dermal soft tissue fillers, bulk heating RF skin tightening devices and fractional RF and/or laser systems can be used in combination with any of the Botox Injection products and can achieve amazing summative and synergistic results.

How Painful is it to Get Dysport Injections?

For most people, receiving Dysport injections is extremely tolerable! It is similar to a tiny mosquito bite that lasts for less than a second. To prevent discomfort, your doctor may apply a small amount of topical cream or gel. While you may feel a bit of pressure, the procedure shouldn’t cause any pain or discomfort.

How Long do Dysport Injections Last?

Dysport injections can last anywhere from 3 to 5 months.

How Is Dysport Different from Botox Injectable?

Dysport is an injectable treatment made from botulinum toxin type A. This is the same neurotoxin that Botox Injectable is made from. While it can take 1 to 2 weeks for Botox Injectable to become noticeable, Dysport works within hours.
