Dysport is a strain of botulinum toxin type A that has a wide range of medical applications due to its ability to inhibit muscle contractions by blocking nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract. Dysport works to block other nerve signals, including those that lead to excessive sweating. Some of the many medical conditions that Dysport can treat are:
- Cervical dystonia
- Muscle spasticity
If you suffer from any of these medical conditions, then schedule a consultation with a member of our team at Flawless Skin by Abby to see if Dysport could help you live a happier, more comfortable life.
Cervical dystonia is the involuntary contraction of the neck muscles, also known as spasmodic torticollis. This condition causes your head and neck to turn to one side or the other as the result of muscle contractions, which are often painful.
This condition has been found to respond to treatments with Dysport. Dysport is a neurotoxin that inhibits the ability of the muscles in the neck to contract. It must be administered carefully and systematically so that the target muscles are affected, without compromising the supportive muscles of the neck. If you are prone to muscle weakness, then this treatment may not be right for you. Schedule a consultation to find out if you are a candidate for Dysport to treat cervical dystonia.
Spasticity in adults
Spasticity in adults can greatly interfere with work and your day to day life. The condition is characterized by an abnormal stiffening of muscles, especially those in the upper or lower limbs. This stiffening can affect:
- Daily comfort
Dysport offers a long-lasting treatment that can relax spastic muscles by inhibiting muscle contraction in target areas. Our professional medical team at Flawless Skin by Abby can help you achieve relief from the condition with a customized Dysport treatment.
Lower limb spasticity in children over the age of two
Children with lower limb spasticity who are over the age of two may be candidates for treatment with Dysport. Children require specific care and dosages when it comes to treatment with Dysport, so it is vital that these treatments performed by highly-skilled medical professionals such as those on our team at Flawless Skin by Abby.
Dysport can alleviate the spasticity of muscles in the lower limbs by targeting the muscles in need of treatment, blocking the nerve impulse that causes the muscle to contract. During a consultation, our team members will be able to answer any questions that you may have about treatment with Dysport when it comes to the health and wellness of your child.
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
Hyperhidrosis is the term given to the condition of excessive sweating. It can stem from many causes, including:
- Anxiety or emotional distress
- Hormonal issues or endocrine conditions
- Overactive thyroid
- Low blood sugar
Many people choose Dysport as an option to help manage excessive sweating. You may be prone to focal hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating in a particular area, such as the armpits, or more general sweating in many areas around the body. In both cases, Dysport could be a good treatment for you, as the injections inhibit the production of sweat at the glandular level.
Migraines are a source of chronic pain and discomfort for many people. If you suffer from migraines or tension headaches fifteen or more days out of the month, then you may be a candidate for treatment with Dysport to alleviate the condition. Treatments with Dysport reduce the frequency and severity of headaches for many patients. Schedule a consultation at Flawless Skin by Abby to see how we can help you with your chronic migraines.
