How does it work?
Botulinum toxin can be injected into various areas of the face and body in concentrated amounts to temporarily inhibit muscle movement. They disrupt the signals in your nervous system, preventing the release of the chemical acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that sticks to muscle cell receptors, causing muscles to shorten or contract. This process occurs when you frown, squint, smile and so on, which is how these injectables address wrinkle formation. By preventing these muscles from contracting, BOTOX® and Xeomin® result in a smoother, more youthful appearance.
