What is it?
Neuromodulators are injectables with botulinum toxin type A as the active ingredient. Dysport® is one of the most popular neuromodulators brands used in cosmetic procedures worldwide. NP Aesthetics Las Vegas proudly offers and uses these brands based on the specific patient’s needs.
In this procedure, very small amounts of purified botulinum toxin are injected into the targeted muscles of the problem areas. This results in a temporary relaxation of the targeted muscles which visibly reduces wrinkles and fine lines. When such muscles relax, wrinkles diminish or
even disappear altogether. Book your consultation today!
