What Is a Neuromodulator?

Neuromodulators, like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, are prescription medicines that doctors inject into your muscles to improve and smooth the appearance of wrinkles that are caused by your face's natural expressions, like smiling or laughing. These can include frown lines, forehead lines, and fine lines around the eyes. Botox treatments are simple and precise with almost no pain.

Neuromodulators block the signal between your nerve and muscle cells. Relaxing the muscles in these areas can help get rid of unwanted wrinkles and burrows or crow's feet that can give off a tired or angry expression. The most common areas treated are the lines between the:

  • eyebrow,
  • forehead,
  • crow's feet, lip lines, and
  • neck.

Doctors can also treat excessive perspiration under arms (hyperhidrosis) with neuromodulators.
