Botox Dysport Ratio
Botox vs Dysport Units
Dysport vs. Botox
Yes, the ratio of units for Dysport versus Botox is generally 3 units of Dysport for 1 unit of Botox to give similar results. When beginning Dysport it is helpful to go with standard doses and then you can customize it to your needs as you get further treatments. Many patients report seeing the results of Dysport faster than Botox and that for some it lasts longer.

Dysport vs. Botox Units
When we used this 2.5:1 ratio for several months after the launch of Dysport, we were finding it to be a little short of the duration for Botox. Since we have switched over to a 3:1 conversion ratio, we have been able to match the duration of 20 units of Botox by using 60 units of Dysport.
Dysport also takes effect more quickly and we can use less equivalent units in the forehead because it disperses more widely.
Yes of course.
Dysport vs Botox
The answer is yes. Both Botox and Dysport are Botulinum Toxin A. That is the substance that temporarily causes muscles to be paralyzed and smooth out wrinkles. They are formulated differently in regards to strength. It takes more units of Dysport to attain the same effect as that of Botox. However, Dysport is less expensive per unit than Botox. Basically equals out in regards to total cost.
Some physicians purchase more of one than the other and may receive a lower cost which is passed on to patients or is used for specials throughout the year that may save one some money.
Both are supposed to provide a reduction in wrinkles for around 4 months. If the substance is diluted more than what the manufacturer suggests, the patient may not see as good of a result or it may not last as long.
Hope this helps.
