Jeuveau/Botox

Jeuveau and Botox are a type of neuromodulator that contains the active ingredient botulinum A toxin. Aesthetically, these neuromodulators are used in the area of the glabella muscles to paralyze these muscles temporarily, the forehead or crow’s feet around the lateral area of the eyes, or other areas of the face. Injection of a neuromodulator into the small muscles between the brows causes those specific muscles to halt their function (be paralyzed), thereby improving the appearance of the wrinkles muscles in the face.
