BOTOX and other Wrinkle Relaxers (Dysport, Jeuveau)
Botox and other wrinkle relaxers such as Dysport and Jeuveau are the most popular aesthetic services in the United States. These wrinkle relaxers are FDA approved to help improve the signs of aging by diminishing fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck.
How does Botox work?
Botox works by relaxing the muscles where it is placed, blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. When the muscles are relaxed, as a result of the wrinkles they were forming soften, and sometimes completely disappear. Botox also works by making the muscles smaller, so it can also be used for jaw slimming and for sweat reduction under the arms.
