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.
