Dysport – Treating Facial Wrinkles and Other Skin Problems With Botox and Injectable Medication
Dysport is an umbrella term for a group of related diseases that include a wide variety of conditions which all affect the central nervous system and the respiratory system. Botox is a toxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botox. It blocks the release of an important neurotransmitter called acetylcholine by blocking the nerve receptor axon. This allows the nerve cells to function normally and so the patient can breathe normally. Botox works by blocking the communication between nerves. It is injected into the affected area or affected muscles so that they do not work.
Inhalation is one of the important ways of treating dysport since it takes three to ten minutes for the liquid to reach the lungs. Inhalation therapy involves pumping a small amount of saline water through the nose to help with the breathing and one also needs to breathe out through the mouth. In some patients, a higher dosage may be needed to achieve an adequate result. Botox injections work by relaxing the muscles of facial muscles so that they do not twitch, which in turn reduces the inflammation in the treated areas and reduces the elasticity of the muscles.
There are two types of injectable form of dysport treatment, namely, subcutaneous and intramuscular injection. Subcutaneous injections are used on facial muscles and areas which are difficult to reach via oral medication. Intramuscular injections are usually used to treat more severe forms of dysport such as epicondylitis and ophthalmoplegia. The drug enters the blood stream via the vein and is absorbed by the body muscles, which then reduce the inflammation and contract. These injections will not have any visible effects on the skin of the person taking it, but it might take up to three weeks before any visible results can be observed.
