Dysport Uses

Can Children Use It?

Dysport is not approved for use in individuals under the age of 18 years old. If you think your child may benefit from Dysport injections, be sure to discuss the possible risks, as well as the benefits, with your child's healthcare provider.

Off-Label Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Dysport for something other than the conditions discussed in this article. This is called an "off-label" use. At this time, off-label Dysport uses include treating the following conditions:
  • Severe underarm sweating
  • Eyelid twitching or spasms (known medically as blepharospasm)
  • Misaligned eyes, such as crossed eyes (known medically as strabismus)
  • Achalasia (a condition involving difficulty swallowing)
  • Drooling
  • Muscle spasms in children with cerebral palsy
  • Neurogenic bladder (bladder disorders caused by nerve problems)
  • Migraine headaches.
Also, using Dysport for other cosmetic uses other than frown lines between the eyebrows would be considered an off-label use.
