Neurotoxins (like Botox)

Neurotoxins, like Botox, are substances that target the nervous system, disrupting the signaling processes that allow neurons to communicate effectively. In aesthetics, neurotoxins are used in small, controlled amounts to temporarily reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. They work by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing the muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles.

Botox, or Botulinum toxin type A, is the most well-known and widely used neurotoxin in aesthetic treatments. However, there are other popular neurotoxins used in the industry as well. These include Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA), Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA), and Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA). Each of these products has a slightly different formulation, but they all work in a similar way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and create a smoother, more youthful appearance.
