DYSPORT FAQ 1
We get our Original Dysport® directly from Galderma, USA. Some places get their Dysport from Canada or Europe, which is unsafe, and illegal. You can check for Happy Clinic Denver's status on www.dysportusa.com.
Dysport® is the protein Botulinum Toxin A made by Galderma, a world leader in prescription cosmetic medicines including Dysport, Restylane, Perlane, and Sculptra. Dysport® is FDA approved to reduce the appearance of glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows), but can also be used for forehead lines, crows feet, and anywhere else that Botox® would normally be placed.
What is the difference between Botox® and Dysport®?
Both are botulinum toxins. Both have the same effects in the body. Some studies report that Dysport® may produce faster results - in 1-3 days as opposed to 3-5 days for Botox® Cosmetic. As to longevity, I find that to be dependent upon the patient. Some patients report that Dysport® lasts 2 weeks longer and other patients will report the opposite.
Dysport® is also dosed differently as far as the number of units used. The medical community agrees that in an apples to apples comparison, 1 unit of Botox® is equal to 3 units of Dysport®, so you have to use 3 times the units of Dysport® to get the same effectiveness. Happy Clinic Denver sells our Dysport® in Botox® Equivalent Units to make it easier for patients to compare apples to apples. So when we say that Dysport is $9 per Equivalent Botox® Unit, we are actually saying it is $9 per 3 actual Dysport® Units, or $3 per unit of Dysport®.
When injected into the muscle or tissue, Dysport® impairs the nerves from telling the muscles to contract or the sweat glands to produce sweat.
You will notice some initial redness and swelling in the treated area that will subside in the next hour. Within 1-5 days, you will start to notice a more rested appearance, with the best effects noticed in 1 week. Contrary to popular belief, you can have a full range of facial expressions with Dysport® treatments.

Remain upright for 4 hours. Keep your head and neck straight. Avoid touching the treated area.
Most people compare the injection sensation to a bug bite. Overall discomfort is minimal and temporary.
Traditionally it is used to treat frown lines between the eye brows, forehead creases, crows feet around the eyes and fine lines above the lips. Dysport® Cosmetic can also be injected into the underarms, the palms of the hands, and the soles of the feet to treat hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating).
