Do not mix two different botulinum products. Dysport is mixed with sterile saline solution. Be sure you're going to a reputable physician who uses the real products.

Botox and Dysport should not be mixed together, but should be reconstituted with preservative free sterile saline solution and used separately.

Dysport, just like the other toxins(Botox and Xeomin) are mixed with Saline. Depending on the number of units contained in the vial, this will determine the ratio in which the product should be mixed. Botulinum toxins should not be mixed with anything else other than sterile saline.

Thank you for sharing your question. Both Dysport and Botox come in a powder form and are reconstituted with sterile saline. They are not mixed together. I hope this helps.

Dysport must be reconstituted prior to use.  It is mixed with sterile saline before it can be injected.  The manufacturer provides guidelines as to the amount of saline to use for reconstitution.

Thank you for your question! Dysport (and Botox) is available in a powder form and must be reconstituted with saline prior to injection. By reconstituting the physician or nurse is preparing the medication to be injected, not diluting it. I hope this is helpful to you!

Be well,

Dysport is a neuromodulator which relaxes muscles, and prevents them from contracting and forming wrinkles.  It comes as a powder, and is reconstituted with saline (salt water) to make it injectable.
