1What do neurotoxins do?
Neurotoxins also known as neuromodulators are an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure used to treat permanent furrows also known as ‘The Elevens’ between the brow, it is also often used for deep wrinkles like crows feet and much, much more. It contains a purified and safe form of neurotoxin, which when injected, relaxes the facial muscles.
2How do neurotoxins work?
The neurotoxins work by relaxing the facial lines that create wrinkles, leaving the skin looking smoother and younger. It also prevents new lines from forming by blocking muscle contractions beneath the skin that causes wrinkles to form. Without these muscle contractions, your skin appears smoother and more youthful.
