There is no contraindication to having Dysport injections if you have asthma.

There is no contraindication to having Dysport injections if you have asthma. Make sure to tell your injector about your condition, however, and always see a board-certified dermatologist for any injectable neuromodulator treatments.

Dysport and Asthma

Thank you for your question.  Having asthma is not a contra-indication to receiving Botox or Dysport injections. The neurotoxins act to paralyze the muscle they are injected into. No systemic effects result when injected by a competent professional. I always recommend seeing a board certified plastic surgeon who does a high volume of injectables.
