Dysport is a brand name for abobotulinumtoxinA, an injection for temporary improvement of moderate to severe lines on the face, particularly the frown lines between the eyebrows. It is a prescription-only medicine, meaning it must be prescribed by a qualified medical professional to each individual.
It works by reducing the activity of the treated muscles, preventing the overlying skin from folding on itself and creating wrinkles.
