What is the average cost of getting Dysport injections for wrinkles? I'm hoping the cost of Dysport injections will be cheaper than the Botox price.

Cost of Dysport in Seattle
Dysport and Botox are basically the same price. However, 1 unit of botox is between 2.5 to 3 units of dysport, so it is not a one to one dosing. Some clinics are still trying to figure out how to price dysport, but most are trying to keep the pricing about the same as botox.
In Seattle, you will find that the cost for dysport is about $4 to $6 dollars per unit.
If you usually use between 20 to 25 units of botox to treat your "11"s, then you would use about 55 to 65 units of dysport.
In our experience, we have found that dysport may be a little "stronger" than botox. In other words, it seems to freeze the area a little bit more. However, they seem to last about the same amount of time.

Cost of Dysport vs Botox
We've made it simple in our practice and priced Dysport and Botox the same. We've found that some people prefer Dysport over Botox and others prefer Botox over Dysport. It's an individual choice and to not complicate the situation any further, we've priced them equally per area. However, being that Botox came out first in the US, Dysport is offering manufacturer mail in rebates and specials that we pass down to our patients. Visit Dysports main website for details. Hope this helps!
Dysport cost in Plano, Texas
We charge $325 for the first syringe of Dysport and $225 for the second syringe. Each syringe is 75 units (equivalent of 30 units of Botox).
Medicis, the manufacturer, usually offers a rebate on the first syringe (currently $50), which may cut the cost to $275 for the first Dysport syringe. (In equivalent Botox units, this corresponds to just over $9 per unit for the first syringe and $7.50 per unit for the second syringe.)

Dysport vs. Botox
The costs per unit of dysport is less than that of Botox, b/c you have to inject more units total, usually a 2.5 to 3 ratio. For example, if you usually get 20 units/area of Botox, you'll be getting 50-60 units of dysport/area. I've used dysport overseas for about 4 years and in the US for a year since it was FDA approved. Its as good or better than botox, and we charge on average $300-400/area.
Dysport and Botox are the same price
While it’s true that the cost per unit of Dysport is less than per unit of Botox, the cost ends up being about the same because you need more Dysport to get the same result you would get with less Botox. That doesn’t mean one is better than the other, just different. I offer both Dysport and Botox, and the cost ends up being about the same.
Also, keep in mind you are not paying for a *product*. You are paying for a *service*, and the cost will vary based on the training, experience, and skill level of who is injecting the product. You want to have this done by someone with a complete understanding of facial anatomy. The injections are not placed at random, and the knowledge and skill of your injector will appear directly on your face, so you want to choose carefully, and not just based on cost.
Dysport and cost savings when compared to Botox
Dysport typically requires 2.5 times the dosage for the same effect. For example, the glabellar frown wrinkles is 20 units for Botox but 50 units for Dysport. So if you pay 12 dollars per unit for Botox, paying $5 per unit for Dysport is roughly equivalent.
The manufacturers are currently offering rebates to incentivize patients. Dysport can last slightly longer and may therefore require 3 injections a year rather than the common 4 for Botox. This can result in substantial cost savings of 25%. When compare without discounts or rebates the difference in cost can be 5-10% in favor of Dysport.

Dysport and Botox are the same price
Dysport is out now and doing great. Botox and Dysport are the same price in most offices even tho Dysport may last 3-5 months and Botox 3-4 month. Dysport and botox both cost roughly $300 an area which would be crows feet or frown lines or forehead creases.

Dysport price not yet determined
The price has not been announced yet. Of course, Dysport has yet to be approved in the U.S. I am sure I agree with nearly all my colleagues that I hope too that it will be cheaper.
Dysport cost Atlanta
Dysport and Botox costs are similar now as both products seem to provide the same effectiveness. However, because of the popularity of Botox, Dysport can sometimes be found cheaper though not always the case. They are essentially the same active ingredient with different preservatives.

Botox vs. Dysport costs
Costs for Dysport vary like costs for Botox do. Geographic area and who is performing the injections play a role in determining cost. In my practice, I am the only injector, though in New York state, there are very few laws governing who can legally inject. Some office may price treatments by area like they do for Botox, but I have always felt that pricing by unit (the actual amount used) is more fair to everyone, and also easier to understand. Since for some patients, Dysport lasts longer (it does kick in about a week faster) and may have a bit of a stronger hold in some cases, it may be that for some patients Dysport ends up being cheaper over the long run, though this is not a hard and fast rule, and some people prefer their experiences with Botox.
