What is the treatment about?
Dysport is an injection containing abobotulinumtoxinA (Botulinum toxin type A). AbobotulinumtoxinA is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.
Dysport is used to treat cervical dystonia (severe spasms in the neck muscles).
Dysport is also used to treat muscle spasms (stiffness) in the upper limbs (elbows, wrists, fingers) or lower limbs (ankles, toes).
Dysport is also used to temporarily lessen the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Dysport may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What are the benefits of this treatment?
There is no need to have any surgery using this treatment because of the nature of the injection. The doctor will inject the ABO directly into the muscles of the affected area, so there is no need to cut through any skin or tissues to get to any muscles. This also keeps the post-treatment downtime and recovery period to a minimum.
Neurotoxins are safe when injected in small amounts, and each injection typically only contains up to 0.05 milliliters of ABO. This ensures that you will not receive too much and prevent negative effects on your skin and muscles.
The treatment is all done in-office without requiring hospitalization or an overnight stay. In fact, one treatment may take only 10-20 minutes, allowing you to move on with the rest of your day!
Though it only takes a short time to complete the injections, most patients see improvements in as little as 2-3 days. And you won’t have to retreat often, because initial results can last for up to four months before you may need another injection.
Improved Quality of Life
Having wrinkles, lines, or sagging skin can cause you to feel self-conscious as you live your life. Using this injection can help to improve the way you feel about your appearance and make you feel more self-confident. And if you’re looking for the treatment as a means of therapy, you can have relief from painful muscle stiffness and spasms for months at a time.
What all is included in this treatment?
Dysport is more commonly used as a cosmetic treatment for wrinkles and lines in the face as a result of aging. One of the most commonly known conditions is glabellar lines, which are the vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows as a result of scowling, frowning, or even intently focusing while listening or reading. The injection will keep the muscles involved in these actions from moving, preventing the lines from worsening.
It can also be used to prevent and get rid of crow’s feet, droopy noses or mouth corners, and sagging neck skin. The injection will fill in the area around the muscles, reducing and eventually eliminating their appearance for a more youthful, smoother look.
There are many neurological disorders that can cause involuntary muscle spasms, and these spasms can have a major detrimental effect on one’s quality of life. One of these conditions is cervical dystonia, which is also known as spasmodic torticollis.
This painful condition causes the muscles in the neck to contract involuntarily, which causes your head to turn or twist to one side and even tilt forward or backward uncontrollably. By using the injection to block the movement of the muscles, you can avoid the painful sudden muscle spasms that come with this condition.
Limb spasticity can occur in both children and adults when the nerve cells that are responsible for carrying messages from the brain to different body parts are damaged. This can cause the affected muscles in the limbs to receive the wrong signals, making them tense up and contract. This leads to tightness and stiffness in the muscles and can affect your ability to perform even the simplest of tasks. Some common health conditions that cause limb spasticity include cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis (MS), and stroke.
The botulinum injection can be used as therapy for this condition. It is injected directly into the affected leg or arm muscles by one of our qualified specialists, allowing it to block these wrong signals from the brain temporarily. This keeps the muscles from tightening or contracting for months at a time. It can be used for the upper and lower limbs for adults and for the lower limbs for pediatric patients over two years old.

Q. Who Is a Candidate
If you have wrinkles or sagging skin on your face or neck and would like to achieve a more youthful look, then you can benefit from this treatment. ABO is typically recommended for people who have moderate to severe glabellar lines. If you’re looking to the injection as therapy for a muscle condition, then you may qualify as long as you are two years of age or older depending on your health condition.
Q. Who Is Not a Candidate
Though it can be used for other conditions like spasticity for children, this injection can not be used on children younger than two years of age. It also can not be used on adults with a cow milk protein allergy, an allergy to any of the ingredients in the ABO, or an infection of the skin at the injection site.
