Neuromodulators (Botox, Daxxify, Dysport, Jeaveau, Myobloc, Xeomin) are nonsurgical, cosmetic injectables that are used to temporarily lessen or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Commonly treated areas include frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet. These cosmetic injections work by blocking signals sent between nerves and muscles leading to paralysis of the muscle and smoothening of the overlying skin. The end result is diminished wrinkles. The results are temporary, typically lasting about 3 months. In addition to treating fine lines and wrinkles, botulinum toxin injections have also been used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
