Dysport injectable treatment is an FDA approved facial anti-aging solution designed to reduce frown lines and other wrinkles from the face. For patients who are keen to avoid facial cosmetic surgery, the surgeon may recommend Dysport as a temporary, non-surgical alternative for facial rejuvenation.
During the initial consultation, the Dysport treatment provider will discuss various aspects of the procedure, including its estimated costs. Dr. Eric Yavrouian is a leading facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon providing state of the art aesthetic procedures, including Dysport. Dr. Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.
In comparison to various other facial anti-aging procedures, both cosmetic surgery-based and non-surgical, Dysport is among the most cost-effective treatment options. Surgical treatments such as a traditional or a mini facelift can cost substantially higher than a temporary injectable solution such as Dysport. Even an upper face procedure such as brow lift, forehead lift or eyelid lift will cost significantly more than a Dysport treatment.
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments include cosmetic dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser skin tightening, and other innovative techniques. However, most of these techniques will cost considerably more than Dysport injectables. Many of the procedures also involve downtime, but in case of Dysport, the patient will not have to take time off from work, and there are no other post-operative costs either.
Factors Impacting the Price
The dollar figure of Dysport injectable treatment can vary to some extent between two practices. One of the key factors is the geographical location of the practice. The cost of living in major urban centers will usually be higher as compared to smaller cities or semi-urban areas. For instance, the financial sacrifice of an aesthetic procedure in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and nearby locations may not be the same as the cost in, say, Michigan.
Another vital monetary consideration can be whether Dysport treatment is received from a highly trained and experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon or a physician. Dysport treatment is based on botulinum toxin, which is an extremely potent biological substance with severe risk of complications, if it is administered wrongly. Therefore, it is worthwhile to receive such sensitive treatments from an established expert in facial aesthetic procedures.
A single injection of Dysport anti-aging treatment may cost in the range of $400 to $600. The actual dollar figure will vary from one practice to another depending on various factors as discussed. Some patients may need only a minor improvement in a particular area of the face, while others may require more extensive treatment in multiple areas.
Accordingly, the number of Dysport injections required will differ in each case. Therefore, overall cost of the procedure is likely to differ between two patients even at the same practice. The patient should discuss the dollar amount aspects at the time of initial consultation in order to make an informed choice.
Most patients will have the option to get the procedure financed through a professional medical care finance company, credit card extended payments, crowd funding, or personal borrowings from family and/or friends.
