Is Dysport available in the United States?

by Bellevue | Seattle’s Dr. Philip Young | Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery:

Dysport has been available since April of 2009. But has been used in other countries for much longer and has a proven safety record.  I have been using this in my office since April of 2009 as well.  General differences are that Dysport acts quicker getting max affects in around 4-5 days, while botox takes about a 1 1/2 -2 weeks.  They generally last about the same time around 3-4 months. Although Dysport has been approved by the FDA to last 4 months and Botox 3 months, I feel they are about the same.  Dysport seems to spread a little more and give more of a generally larger effect for each shot given than Botox.

Thanks for reading, Dr Young
