How Much Does Dysport Cost?

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.

Dysport and cost savings when compared to Botox

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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.

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

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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 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.

Cost of Dysport versus Botox

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Thank you for your question. There are two elements to the answer. First, it typically takes 2.5 to 3 times the number of units as Botox to achieve an equal response. For the frown lines a typical Botox dose would be 20 units. I use 3 times as many units of Dysport as Botox - hence 60 units. As you would expect the cost per unit of Dysport is usually about 1/3 the cost of Botox per unit. Therefore, the price charged for an area is usually very similar. Around the country, Botox can vary from $10-$15/unit depending on the area of the country and the injector. Dysport is likely to range from $3.50/unit to $5/unit.

Dysport pricing will vary depending on the geographic market, local market conditions, and injector expertise. Most injectors will price Dysport from $3.50 - $5.00 per unit. Keep in mind while comparing pricing to Botox that Botox and Dysport units are not equivalent. Most injectors will equate 2.5 - 3 Dysport units to be equivalent to 1 Botox unit. 

Most of the time, Dysport and Botox will be priced relatively close to one another with respect to equivalent unit dosing. Some injectors will also price the products by injection area rather than by unit in order to avoid the unit discussion altogether.

All the best,

Here in Tijuana Mexico, in my office we charge for Dysport $300.00 USD for full face (glabella, forehead and crows feet). Have a great day!

Dysport Pricing

I agree with most of the other panelist in describing the pricing between Botox and Dysport. The most important factor is understanding the ratio between Dysport and Botox. I would also like to mention that also incorporated into the price is the experience of the injector. So a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon would more likely be more expensive than a non Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. 

The cost of dysport depends on several factors

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

The cost of dysport (or any aesthetic injection) depends on:

1) the skill, training, and credentials of the injector

2) the amount of time the injection takes

3) the geography / the local market
