What Is Botox?

Botox is a purified protein which relaxes muscles by preventing transmission of nerve signals to the muscle. Xeomin and Dysport, like Botox are neuromodulators derived the same protein, which prevent muscle contraction and thus smooth out wrinkles. It is the repeated contraction of muscles that causes wrinkles and creases to form. Neuromodulators will not improve lines from sun damage or gravity. Besides cosmetic uses, neuromodulators are also used to alleviate migraines, jaw pain,severe underarm sweating, uncontrollable blinking and, maybe, even depression.
