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

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 Cost, Connecticut

Dysport Cost less then Botox, therefore, most offices pass that saving on to their patients. Our office charges  $199.00 per area of Dysport and $229 per area of Botox.

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 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.

The cost of dysport depends on several factors

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

Please remember that you are buying a service as well as a product.  (Just like when you buy a photographer's services, you are buying photographs, but you are really paying for the "eye" of the photographer).

Cost of Dysport Vs. Botox

Dysport does require more units compared to Botox, but it is priced much lower. In most cases, the cost ends up being very similar to one another. Dysport does take affect quicker than Botox.

Cost of Dysport

Depending on where you live, Dysport and Botox (toxins) can be priced by either unit or area. Dysport is about the equivalent of 2.5 to 3 units compared to 1 unit of Botox. Thus, the pricing can seem lower for Dysport, when you need more units to get similar results. Call your local specialist for pricing!

Price for Dysport

We charge $13 for 3 units of Dysport and the same $13 price for a unit of Botox.  I think both products work wonders for the dynamic frown lines smile lines or forehead lines.
