What is Dysport?
Dysport is a type of muscle-relaxing medication that contains botulinum toxin type A as its active ingredient. This potent neurotoxin is extracted and purified from fermented Clostridium botulinum bacteria before being purified extensively to be free from any offending impurities. Dysport can be purchased with either 300 or 500 units. Before administering into problematic areas, the white powder must be dissolved in an appropriate amount of sterile sodium chloride solution. The resulting solution should appear colourless and transparent, free from any suspended particles or particulate sedimentation. The prepared toxin solution must be used immediately or stored in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Any unopened vials must also be stored in the refrigerator where the temperature ranges between 2℃ to 8℃, away from freezing conditions, until it is ready to be used.

Although many patients think of Botox as just a treatment for wrinkles, this injectable solution is much more than a cosmetic treatment: it also works to treat overactive bladder (OAB), a condition in which the urge to urinate is frequent and abnormal. In these treatments, Botox’s muscle-relaxing qualities are used to paralyze the bladder muscle, controlling its contractions and reducing the urge to urinate.
Botox treatments for OAB are quick and non-invasive, requiring minimal downtime and little effort. During this process, the solution is injected into the bladder muscle by a trained, licensed medical professional. After the treatment is complete, you should observe the patient until urination occurs to ensure that no adverse effects have transpired. Generally, the full effects of this procedure will be felt 2 weeks after the first injection.
This treatment is expected to last for around 8 months. After this period, your patient will need to have a consultation to determi ...
