Neuromodulators also commonly referred to as ‘Wrinkle Relaxers’ are a form of facial injectables used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, facial sculpting, and more! Wrinkle Relaxers – Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Jeuveau – are expertly injected directly under the muscle causing it to relax and smooth overlying skin.
What’s the difference between BOTOX® and ‘Wrinkle Relaxers’?
BOTOX® came onto the market in 1989 and saw its popularization in the 90s and early 2000s. Most people hear the word ‘Botox’ and instantly picture an over-tightened and expressionless face. While also associating the term as the end all be all of cosmetic treatments and Wrinkle Relaxers.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first of its kind but the world of Wrinkle Relaxers has expanded into a variety of new products like Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau. These products are all classified as neuromodulators and produce the same muscle relaxing effect as their flagship counterpart BOTOX®.
