Neuromodulators are injected into the skin and work by disengaging the contraction function of the muscle there by allowing the muscle to release, relax and smooth out which gives the skin a chance to soften; by doing it has the effect of decreasing or eliminating the tension in the tissue, giving the look of less wrinkled skin and decreasing oil production.
Typically neuromodulators for cosmetic reasons includes the reduction or elimination of fine line and wrinkles but they also have valid use for therapeutic reasons, such as TMJ, migraines and hyperhidrosis to name some.
