Neuromodulators, also known as wrinkle relaxers, are commonly used to relax wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause them. Neuromodulators are made of botulinum toxin, a specialized neurotoxin protein that blocks communications between nerve endings and muscles. Botox and Dysport work by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. This prevents the muscles from being able to crease the skin.
Neuromodulators are typically used to treat wrinkles on the face, including the forehead, around the eyes, and on the crow’s feet. They can also be used to treat wrinkles on the neck and other parts of the body. Botulinum toxin injections are FDA-approved for the treatment of wrinkles. They are safe and effective and allow you to reverse the signs of aging within a few days. The results usually last for 3 to 4 months.
