Helpful Information About Dysport For Medical Professionals
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a neuromodulating toxin produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium.

It is used in the facial region, neck, shoulders, and upper and lower limbs.
The units of Dysport are specific to the preparation and are not interchangeable with other preparations of botulinum toxin. Dysport should only be administered by appropriately trained physicians.

What are the benefits of this product?
Dysport treats a variety of cosmetic and medical indications. It is similar in many respects to its more notable counterpart Botox, with minor differences in cost, dosage, and effect. While some patients and doctors prefer the look of Dysport when treating crow's feet, and claim that Dysport takes effect quicker and lasts longer, some notice no difference between the two. Some cosmetic surgeons alternate between using Dysport and Botox, since some patients may get "Botox burnout" and stop responding to it over time.
How does this product work?
Dysport, also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, is a neuromuscular blocking agent made from botulinum toxin type A. Over time, wrinkles and lines such as frown lines form on your patient's face as muscles repeatedly contract and tighten. When you inject Dysport into your patient's skin, this neurotoxin blocks the signal between your patient's nerves and their muscles. The muscles beneath your patient's skin relax, and since they are not contracting, they do not form frown lines on the surface. This results in smoother skin for your patients and a younger appearance.
What are the ingredients?
Dysport contains abobotulinumtoxinA, human albumin, and lactose.
How to inject this product

For the treatment of glabellar lines, administer a total dose of 50 units in equally divided aliquots to 5 sites using a 30-gauge needle: 2 in each corrugator muscle, and 1 in the procerus muscle.
