Dysport Type A (2×500 Units)
Dysport Type A (2×500 Units). When it’s the nervous system and muscles that are causing facial expressions to cause wrinkles and frown lines, Botulinums are the easy solution and answer to correct this.
Botulinums, with the most popular known as Botox, act to inhibit chemicals inside the nervous system which normally cause muscle contraction and frowning. Without the chemical signal, muscles are relaxed and the face is frown and wrinkle-free and expressions are normal. Botulinums are also used to treat neck or head pain and treat eye muscle spasms.
Dysport contains the active substance Clostridium botulinum type A toxin-haemagglutinin complex.

How Dysport works:
Dysport contains a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It works by stopping your muscles from contracting. It does this by stopping the release of a chemical that acts between the nerves and muscles that makes the muscles contract. This helps to reduce abnormal muscle contractions known as spasms.
