FDA-approved Dysport injectable dermatology treatment is designed to mitigate frown lines and other facial wrinkles. It is an ideal, although temporary, solution for patients who seek a more youthful appearance in a nonsurgical manner.
At the time of the pre-treatment consultation, the Dysport injection provider will explain various facets of the procedure to the patient, including its approximate costs.
Texas Surgical Dermatology, led by board certified dermatologist Dr. Tri H. Nguyen, provides anti-aging skin care treatments to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Dysport is among the more affordable dermatology treatment options compared to various other non-surgical as well as surgical facial rejuvenation procedures.
Plastic surgery options to reduce facials signs of aging such as a traditional or mini facelift can cost much more than a temporary injectable treatment such as Dysport. In fact, even an upper face surgical procedure such as forehead lift, brow lift, or eyelid lift will be significantly more expensive than Dysport injections.
Non-surgical procedures for facial rejuvenation include chemical peels, laser skin tightening, dermal fillers, and other innovative treatments. But most of these treatments will also cost significantly more than the Dysport injectable procedure.
Many of these treatments will involve downtime. However, the patient will not need to take time off work following Dysport injections. There are no other associated post-treatment costs as well.
Factors Affecting the Cost
Dysport injectable treatment costs can vary between practices. A key reason for this difference is the geographical location of the practice.
The cost of living in prime urban centers and major cities will typically be higher causing a variation in costs between different states. For example, a cosmetic procedure in The Woodlands, TX, and neighboring locations may not cost the same as in a city such as San Diego.
The credentials and background of the treatment provider is also another vital factor affecting the cost of Dysport treatment. The procedure may cost more in the hands of a highly skilled and experienced medical practitioner.
The main ingredient in Dysport is botulinum toxin. This is a powerful biological agent which has the potential to cause serious complications if delivered incorrectly. For this reason, patients should seek Dysport treatment only from a skilled and established expert in the area of facial aesthetic procedures.
The actual monetary amount of Dysport will differ between practices depending on whether they charge per treatment area or per vial. While some patients may need only small improvements in specific facial areas, others may need more extensive treatment in multiple areas of the face.
The patient can also benefit from the manufacturer or practitioner promotional offers, if any.
Each patient will require a different number of Dysport injections. This will affect the sticker price of the procedure between two patients, even at the same practice. The patient should discuss the cost implications with the provider during the initial consultation to make a well-considered decision.
Patients can seek financing from various avenues such as professional medical care finance firms, credit cards, and private loans from friends and family for their Dysport injectable treatment.
