Cosmetic Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin)
“Dynamic wrinkles” are caused by repeated muscular contractions such as frowning, squinting and brow furrowing. For example, when we frown, we gather the tissue between our eyebrows into a fold. This can cause a chronic furrow which produces a frustrated, discouraged or angry facial expression. These frown lines can be eliminated without surgery and without scars, by a simple treatment with cosmetic neuromodulator injections.
• Eliminate wrinkles and frown lines
• Quick and painless treatment
• A more youthful appearance
• No downtime
About Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin)
Neuromodulator injections can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, around the eyes and mouth by causing the weakening of targeted muscles. During treatment, very low doses of the neuromodulator are injected directly into the muscles that cause stubborn lines. Neuromodulators work by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form. As the muscle weakens, the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear, giving the face a more relaxed and refreshed look.
The treatment will take roughly 10 minutes, and no recovery time is needed. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Your aesthetic professional may choose to numb the area with a cold pack prior to performing the injection to minimize any discomfort.
After treatment you may experience some mild redness which usually lasts for approximately an hour. Rarely, patients experience a mild headache or some minor bruising and swelling. Most patients return to regular activity immediately. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for 4 hours after injection and the treated areas should not be rubbed for 24 hours after treatment. You should contract your frowning muscles frequently for the first hour after treatment to work the product in.
Within days, you will see an improvement that can last up to 4 months. Although the results will be noticeable to you, neuromodulator injections will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles is reduced, so you are still able to frown or look surprised, but without the wrinkles and creases. Lines and wrinkles will continue to improve for up to a month, and results can last for up to 4 months.
Neuromodulators should not be administered to pregnant women, nursing mothers or individuals suffering with myasthenia gravis or muscle diseases.
