Patient: Hi,Can you tell me how dysport is metabolized in the body ?Does it go through the liver or the kidneys?Or does it stay where it is injected?

Doctor: Thank you for your question. Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) is derived from botulium toxin. It is injected into muscles to temporary reduce muscle activity. This medication is intended to stay locally but in some cases can get to other parts of the body and can potentially cause adverse effects. Dysport’s effects wears off as the body’s immune system clears the toxin from the area it is injected.Thank you for choosing AskTheDoctor.com
