BOTOX COSMETIC® and Dysport®
At Visage Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in Toronto and Richmond Hill, BOTOX and Dysport injections are available.
If you are considering BOTOX COSMETIC or Dysport, request a consultation or call us at [phome] to book your personalized appointment with Royal College-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marc DuPéré.
Three neuromodulator medications exist on the Canadian market that utilize botulinum toxin A as an active ingredient. Botulinum toxin has been used for medical indications for more than 30 years and for cosmetic use for more than 15 years. To differentiate the 3 medications, each was given a different name: BOTOX COSMETIC (onabotulinumtoxin A), Dysport (abobotulinumtoxin A), and XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxin A).
Disclaimer: BOTOX COSMETIC, Dysport, and XEOMIN are Schedule F drugs in Canada under the Food and Drug Regulations. It is forbidden to advertise such medications. For this reason, we are restricted in the amount of information that we can provide to the public. It is best to contact our office with your questions or, even better, to come and visit us to learn more.
All 3 medications are injected in different doses, so 1 unit of BOTOX COSMETIC does not equal 1 unit of Dysport. This means BOTOX COSMETIC, Dysport, and XEOMIN are not directly interchangeable.
An average dose of BOTOX COSMETIC for women would be 50 to 75 units. An average dose for men would be 60 to 100 units.
Dr. DuPéré’s Neuromodulator Injection Techniques
The effectiveness and safety of any injectable treatments depend on the experience and training of the provider. Patients who choose to get Dysport or BOTOX injections in Toronto or Richmond Hill at Visage Clinic should consider that Dr. DuPéré personally performs the treatments. At many other clinics, aestheticians and nurses inject patients.
Neurotoxin injections require the attention to detail and knowledge of facial anatomy that Dr. DuPéré is known for. A Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, Dr. DuPéré is recognized for his expertise in cosmetic facial injections. He has trained numerous doctors in Canada and has been invited to present at several meetings across Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Precision and experience are essential components of getting the best results from neuromodulator injections.
Patients interested in injectable wrinkle treatments should call us to ask about our cost per unit.
