Dysport is a form of botulinum type A (abobotulinumtoxinA), an injectable neuromuscular blocking agent that is used to temporarily relax the facial muscles, similar to Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA). Botulinum type A has been approved for treating facial wrinkles as well as a wide range of medical conditions. Over time, with repeated motion to form facial expressions, muscular activities produce undesirable lines and wrinkles, creating an aged appearance. To soften these lines, Dysport is injected directly into the facial muscles, temporarily relaxing the targeted muscles and preventing them from contracting and causing the lines and wrinkles. The glabella (vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows), forehead, and/or crow’s feet are areas most commonly treated. It is important to keep in mind that Dysport and Botox are two distinct products – they are not interchangeable. Once injected, botulinum type A agents spread from the injection site and each product diffuses differently. Also, the number of required injections will vary depending on the drug selected. Consequently, injections should be carried out by a skilled physician to ensure correct administration and that the drug does not spread to nearby muscles. Side-effects are generally minor and include headache and drooping eyelids or eyebrows.
