Dysport (Dysport ®) is a botulinum toxin type A preparation manufactured by the UK company Ipsen Products. According to the mechanism of action, it is analogous to Botox ®, having exactly the same indications for use, as well as a similar high safety profile. In Russia, the drug is sold in bottles of 300 and 500 U.
