What Are Muscle Relaxers, And How Do They Work?
Most people have heard of BOTOX by now, but not many understand how it works.
BOTOX is a neuromodulator, which is a chemical that inhibits messages that nerve cells send to muscles, directing them to contract. When the muscle fails to receive this direction, it remains in a temporary state of relaxation.
BOTOX and other neuromodulators like Jeaveau, Dysport, and Xeomin are FDA-approved to treat deep lines and wrinkles in the face, and are completely safe to use. Each muscle relaxer has its own unique formula, though they all share the common active ingredient of botulinum toxin type A. At Zenn Plastic Surgery, our Master Injector Tara Cypher RN, MSN, CANS, is well-versed in all the neuromodulators we offer, though BOTOX is used in most cases.
