What are Neuromodulators?

Neuromodulators are a category of aesthetic products that are utilized to temporarily relax facial muscles, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the face. An extremely versatile option that can be used on any patient, neuromodulators are an excellent way to treat problem areas and prevent further visible signs of aging in a minimally invasive manner!
