Neurotoxins, when used in cosmetic treatments, are designed to temporarily relax specific muscles by blocking nerve signals that cause them to contract. One of the most common uses of these agents is in the reduction of facial wrinkles.
By relaxing targeted facial muscles, neurotoxins can smooth out expression lines and wrinkles, such as those seen between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and around the eyes. Botulinum toxin, commonly known by brand names like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, is one of the most recognized neurotoxins used in aesthetic medicine. The effects of these treatments are temporary, generally lasting 3 months, after which repeat treatments are required to maintain results.
Therapeutic uses with neuromodulators include;- migraines, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), TMJ (temporomandibular joint)
