Difference between Dysport and Botox
Abdolutely not. You should require about 2.5 times the dose. For example 10 units of Botox is roughly equivalent to 25 units of Dysport. 20 Units of Botox compares with 50 units of Dysport. There may be some differences in length of time to onset, longevity of results, and diffusion patterns once injected.
Dysport Units and Botox Units Are Not the Same
Dysport and Botox units do not equally correspond to each other. In fact, there is no specific magic ratio of comparing the two. They are both excellent botulinium toxin neuromuscular regulators, but their units have been established in separate labs using different experiemental animals, etc.
The ratios that are often quoted are 1 unit of Botox Cosmetic is "equivalent" to 2.5 to 3 units of Dysport. These are estimates for physicians to be able to approximate how much Dysport to use in certain areas. It has been shown that the ratio can be variable between patients as well as in different areas on the same patient's face.
Choose your injecting physician carefully.
Dysport in the Same Quantity as Botox
Dysport units and Botox units are not equivalent. This also affects pricing per unit by injectors who price these products by the unit. While there is no exact conversion rate, most injectors consider 2.5 - 3 units of Dysport to be equivalent to 1 unit of Botox.
This mean that if a patient requires 50 units of Botox to achieve the desired result, they are likely to need approximately 150 units of Dysport to achieve similar results.
All the best,
