Love It - Got Exactly the Results That I Wanted - Darien, CT

This was my first experience with Dysport. I have tried Botox a couple of times maybe 2 or 3 years ago and that was also good, but I was going to a different physician ( I saw a plastic surgeon this time, the previous 2 times I saw a dermatologist) and he had Dysport. He told me it is the same medication just a different manufacturer so that was fine with me.

I was injected in my forehead to address one horizontal line that really bothered me. He did a couple of "pokes" above the line and then a smaller dose just above each eyebrow, really almost in the outer eyebrow itself he said to add a little lift in that area.

Well, I am very pleased with the results. We used a very very small dose - I asked for that because I figure you can always add more but obviously can't take away... and it was just enough. It has been about 2 1/2 months and I have noticed a teeny bit that the line is just starting to come back. I will definitely do it again in a month or two once I feel like the line is more visible. Maybe the line is coming back a little faster than with Botox, but I can't say that for sure.

I just went back for another injection today. I did it on 1/16 so considering today is 5/6 I would say it lasted a solid 3 months which is the same as when I did Botox in the past. I hope that if I keep this up I can go longer in between injections bc of cost which was $399 today. I know I live in an expensive part of the country and I think this cost is the going rate around here. I had 75 units of Dysport which I was told is the equivalent of 25 units of Botox. So a small amount I'm told. After doing both Botox and Dysport I'll say the only difference I noticed is that the Dysport kicked in a little sooner.

Just wanted to update to say that this kicked in...

just wanted to update to say that this kicked in after 2 days this time. Much faster than botox has in the past.

Another update on dysport

I got dysport in September 2013 which was 5 months after my last injection, then got another dose today which was 6 months so I really feel like this is lasting longer than Botox at least for me. And it kicks in faster. I'm told I'm getting the equivalent of 20 units of Botox and the cost today was $319.
