What is Neuromodulator?
A neuromodulator is a substance that alters nerve impulse transmission. It is commonly used in cosmetics, in the form of Botox® and Dysport®, to temporarily treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. During the aging process, collagen breaks down causing lines and wrinkles to form. However, these lines can start appearing earlier as a result of muscle activity. To smooth out the skin, botulinum toxin is injected directly into selected muscles to block the transmission of nerve impulses causing temporary paralysis in the injection site. This reduces activity of selected facial muscles and subsequently improves wrinkles.
