Feeling youthful and comfortable in your skin can boost your confidence and emotionally security. Investigating procedures that can improve the appearance of certain areas of your body can help you determine your skincare goals. There are a few different minimally-invasive treatments that help smooth wrinkles on the face. The Botox vs. Dysport debate has been heated for a long time. The two treatments are very similar, but they don’t always provide the same results for different areas of the face.

When deciding if Dysport treatment is right for you, make sure you seek out doctors you can trust. The talented team at Bella Medical Spa are some of the most qualified doctors in the Philadelphia area and are here to answer any questions you may have about Dysport treatment and how the process works. Cosmetic surgery can be a scary proposition for some people, and it’s important to know which treatment will work best for you. While Botox and Dysport are similar, there are some key differences that you should take into account before opting for one or the other.

Dysport vs. Botox

Dysport and Botox are injectable treatments intended for adults to help address moderate to severe lines on the face including forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. They are similar procedures, but they do have some notable differences. Both are known to be treatments for wrinkles and are minimally-invasive injectable treatments. Also, Dysport and Botox are both highly effective procedures that help give the skin a more youthful appearance. They only take a few minutes to administer, and Dysport injections only take a few days to produce results.

Differences between the two procedures include; dosage, dilution, molecule size, diffusion, and onset. Botox and Dysport are implemented in different dosages. It takes about three units of Dysport to achieve the same muscle-relaxing effect as Botox. Dysport is more diluted than Botox, but that doesn’t mean that it is less effective. It just takes a higher quantity to achieve the same results. Dysport is 80% effective when it comes to treating and smoothing wrinkles.

The dilution processes of both procedures are also different. Dysport is more diluted than Botox. The molecule sizes of Dysport and Botox are also different—Dysport’s smaller molecules help it work faster and spread over a larger area. It also means that Dysport is less likely to be broken down by antibodies. No matter what, though, it’s always important to consult a licensed provider to discuss your options before choosing a procedure.

Botox and Dysport also diffuse differently. After injection, Dysport will diffuse more and spread to a larger area around the injection site. This means that it requires fewer injections than Botox. Since Dysport spreads to larger areas, it has been deemed less effective for smaller areas that require more precision and areas that have thicker muscle. After a Dysport injection, patients must wait about 24 hours to see results. With Botox, patients sometimes have to wait up to 72 hours. While Botox takes longer to materialize, it does last longer. The treatment that’s best for you will depend on the location of the trouble spots on your face. The experienced cosmetic injectors at Bella Medspa can help you make that decision with peace of mind.

Dysport Cost

According to Healthline, the average cost per Dysport session is about $400 which, in most cases, is less expensive than Botox. Still, that price can vary depending on the area in which you’re seeking treatment. It is also important to remember that men have larger muscles than women, meaning they’ll need more treatment to cover the same area. It’s important to note that plastic surgery, including dermal fillers and other types of injectable treatment, is not covered by health insurance.

What Does Dysport Treat?

Wrinkles and fine lines can age the face, causing many to feel dissatisfied with their appearance. Dysport helps smooth wrinkles and fix skin texture, thereby creating a more youthful appearance. It’s known to be a very effective procedure for treating lines between the eyebrows as well. Dysport gives skin a youthful and even appearance. During the procedure, injections are strategically made to spread over trouble areas, making crow’s feet and frown lines fade away. Dysport treats a wide variety of areas and smooths wrinkles beautifully, but repeated injections are required to maintain results. Listed below are a few areas that can be treated with Dysport injections:

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet start as small wrinkles at the corners of the eyes that can only be seen when squinting. As time passes, the wrinkles grow deeper and deeper until they’re apparent even when the face is in a resting position. Crow’s feet can make people look older than they are. Fortunately, Dysport is a fantastic way to diminish the appearance of crow’s feet. The injection will relax the muscles around your eyes, obfuscating wrinkles and giving the skin a smoother, more youthful look.

Frown Lines

Many of the wrinkles that appear on our faces over time are caused by the repetitive use of our facial muscles. As we age and use the muscles on our faces, that skin starts to lose its elasticity, causing our faces to look older than they really are. Dysport can help make frown lines less noticeable and restore patients’ confidence. When treating frown lines, our goal is to smooth the skin so the injections can allow the muscles responsible for the wrinkles to relax. This treatment can give the skin a smooth look for three to four months after the initial injection.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Getting wrinkles is a normal part of the aging process and nothing about which you should be embarrassed, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Getting Dysport treatment to smooth wrinkles can help you feel more youthful and confident in your own skin. Fine lines and wrinkles can form on the face due to the repetition of muscle contractions while using different facial expressions. Those wrinkles on the face form over time and start as lines that, as the muscles contract repeatedly, slowly progress into deep wrinkles. But don’t worry—a Dysport treatment for fine lines and wrinkles will address their underlying causes, smooth out your skin, and improve its overall texture.

Dysport Before and After

If done correctly by a trained professional, no one will be able to tell the difference after you receive a Dysport treatment. Dysport treatments temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines and other types of wrinkles. A single treatment can last up to five months depending on where it’s injected, and after a patient’s injected they can expect to enjoy an improvement in their skin’s texture and overall feel. Side effects from Dysport may not appear until a few days after the treatment and can last for about four months post-injection.

Both Dysport and Botox are very cost-effective cosmetic procedures that can give the face a more youthful look. Dysport is a treatment that has been proven to be a quick and easy way to temporarily smooth wrinkles on a treated area. Smoothing wrinkles on the face while making sure the results still look natural can boost patients’ confidence self-esteem. Also, having a trusted and trained professional help you through the process will reduce the stress and anxiety that often accompanies cosmetic procedures. Dysport is a treatment that has been proven to be a quick and easy way to temporarily smooth wrinkles on the face.

When debating whether Botox or Dysport is the best facial rejuvenation treatment for you, it’s crucial that you consult a trained, highly qualified plastic surgeon. For example, the helpful staff at Bella Medical Spa can ensure that you feel more comfortable in your skin and restore your youthful appearance. We offer a wide variety of treatments and are always here to help you feel your best. Contact us today to make an appointment at the best location in Philadelphia, PA for your Dysport treatment.


Sometimes referred to as a ” non-surgical facelift“, BOTOX has helped many people who would not have otherwise had access to a truly effective treatment for wrinkles, frown lines, and crows feet.

Benefits of Dysport

Dysport’s primary advantage lies in its fast-acting results–patients often notice improvements within 2-4 days of their treatment. Moreover, Dysport is known to deliver a more natural look than some of its counterparts, allowing patients to maintain their basic facial features and continue making natural expressions.

The treatment is also minimally invasive with very little downtime, making it a preferred choice for many seeking cosmetic enhancements.

Side Effects of Dysport

Dysport has a good safety profile, but like any medical procedure it does involve some potential side effects. The most common side effects are temporary and can include swelling, redness, and pain at the injection site. Some patients might also experience a headache or feel flu-like symptoms.

How Long Does Dysport Last?

Dysport results typically last for three to four months. The exact duration can vary depending on several factors, including the individual’s metabolism, the area treated, and the amount of Dysport used during the treatment.

It’s important to note that the results are not permanent and follow-up treatments are necessary to maintain them. Over time, some patients may notice that their results last slightly longer after each treatment session as their treated muscles become trained to relax.

What Makes a Good Candidate for Dysport?

A good candidate for Dysport is typically someone who is in generally good health and has moderate to severe fine lines and/or wrinkles on their face. It’s also important that candidates have realistic expectations about the results of this treatment, understanding that while Dysport can help to soften facial wrinkles, it does not guarantee a complete eradication of them.

As always, consultation with a qualified professional like Bella Medspa is essential to determining your eligibility for Dysport.

Who Shouldn't Use Dysport?

Dysport is not recommended for individuals who have an allergy or sensitivity to cow’s milk protein or any of the other ingredients in Dysport. It’s also unsuitable for those with a bacterial infection at the injection site or a muscle or nerve condition such as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome.

Pregnant women, or women planning to become pregnant, as well as breastfeeding mothers should not use Dysport either. Always consult a healthcare professional before beginning any new cosmetic treatment.

How to Prepare for Dysport Treatment

To prepare for a Dysport treatment, it’s important to stop taking any blood-thinning medications a week before your scheduled treatment, as these may increase your risk of bruising. You should also abstain from alcohol and nicotine for at least 24 hours leading up to the treatment.

On the day of the procedure, arrive with a clean face free of makeup, cream, and lotion. Lastly, it’s important to be well-rested and hydrated before the treatment, for this will yield the best results.

What Happens During the Dysport Procedure?

During the Dysport procedure, your injector will begin by cleansing the area to be treated. They will then use a thin needle to administer small amounts of the Dysport solution into the specific muscles causing your wrinkles.

The injections only take a few minutes and are usually well tolerated. You may experience a slight stinging or burning sensation, but it will be temporary. Patients are generally able to continue with their days after Dysport treatment, making it an ideal lunchtime procedure.

Dysport Recovery

Dysport recovery is generally rapid and uncomplicated, with most patients able to resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment. However, there are a few guidelines providers recommend to ensure you achieve optimal results.

Patients should avoid touching, rubbing, or applying makeup to their treated area(s) for at least four hours following the procedure. Mild side effects such as swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site are common but typically subside within a few days.

It’s also advisable to avoid rigorous physical exercise for 24 hours post-treatment. The final results of Dysport treatment are usually visible within two weeks of the injections, and they can last for up to four months. After this period, follow-up treatments may be required to maintain them.
