At Bergen Dermatology Specialists the primary neuromodulators we use are BOTOX® and Dysport® to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the underlying muscles. Botox helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles that form on the forehead, between the eyebrows, or around the eyes. Botox is a neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum, an organism found in the natural environment where it is largely inactive and non-toxic. This is the most popular cosmetic treatment, with more than 6 million botox treatments administered each year.
As skin loses elasticity, repeated facial expressions cause lines and wrinkles to be “etched” into the skin. Our goal at Bergen Dermatology specialists is to give the skin a youthful refreshed look, while still having the ability to make facial expressions.
