Dysport is used in adults to treat muscle spasms around the eyes, face, neck, arm and shoulders, and in the legs. Dysport is also used for the treatment of excess sweating of the armpits, which interferes with daily living. In children (two years and above), Dysport is used for the treatment of muscle spasms associated with cerebral palsy to improve their walking.
Dysport reduces muscle spasms (abnormal contractions) by stopping muscles from contracting. Dysport prevents the release of a chemical which acts between the nerves and muscles that makes these muscles contract.
