Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators, which work by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can’t contract or can only contract so much, making the wrinkles relax and soften. In this way, neuromodulators can be used to treat existing wrinkles, but they can also be used preventatively. Preventative treatments target these muscle groups to prevent that wrinkle from appearing.
Many clients worry that they will look too “frozen” after a Botox treatment. The degree of muscle movement you wish to maintain is up to you, and your practitioner can adjust your treatment accordingly.
