Botulinum (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin):
Botulinum toxin is the active ingredient in Botox and similar injectables that are designed to relax wrinkles and provide a more youthful appearance. Though botulinum can be used for other purposes, such as reducing excessive sweating by inhibiting sweat glands, it is far more commonly used for cosmetic purposes. It works by blocking the nerves in specific parts of the face that can cause a bevy of fine lines and wrinkles. Contrary to popular belief, botulinum does not “freeze” your face and renders you unable to express emotions. When administered by a licensed and board-certified dermatologist at Premier Dermatology, botulinum toxin is considered safe for cosmetic use.
