Botox and Dysport (neuromodulators) are injectable neurotoxins, which are used to smooth dynamic wrinkles, or those wrinkles that form as a result of facial movements like frowning, squinting, smiling, and other expressions we tend to make day after day. Its most basic action is to relax causing temporary weakness. Wrinkles and lines become smoother or disappear altogether. As a result, your expressions soften and the dynamic wrinkles are greatly reduced.
Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that are minimized, not your expressions.
Patients who feel they look tired, angry or even sad, find that softening frown lines through neuromodulator treatment leaves them looking happier, more optimistic, and well-rested
