  • Overview

    What does the future hold for aesthetics? The 4 four available neuromodulators share a similar mechanism of action and efficacy profiles, but they each have their own unique characteristics, and now an emerging agent is about to enter the scene. Dr. Joel Cohen and Dr. Carolyn Jacob discuss the subtle differences among neuromodulators and the importance of dosing for duration, specifically for the glabella and upper face. They also explore potential adverse events and strategies to minimize your patients’ risks.
