What Is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a type of botulinum toxin that temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The active ingredient in Dysport® is abobotulinumtoxinA, which is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This protein blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which is responsible for transmitting nerve signals to the muscles. When injected into specific areas of the face, Dysport® blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract, which in turn causes them to relax and become less active. This reduces wrinkles and fine lines on the face, creating a smoother and more youthful appearance.
