Dysport 1×500 iu
Dysport 1×500 iu uses its neurotoxin active ingredient derived from bacteria to inhibit the release of an important chemical in the nervous system. The effects are that corresponding muscles don’t receive the chemical messenger which will usually make muscles begin to contract and spasm.
