If you’re looking for a way to refresh your face and erase the evidence of aging and stress, one of our neuromodulators may be the solution for you. Different from facial fillers, neuromodulators relax tense muscles that cause wrinkles and defined expression lines. When done by a board-certified provider, neuromodulators safely and effectively diminish wrinkles and lines without leaving you “frozen-faced.”
Neuromodulators and Fillers are a prescription-only medicines administered by a qualified medical professional. The main uses for the treatments include the relaxation of forehead lines (horizontal lines that form raising your eyebrows) crow’s feet (lines that form at the corner of your eye when you smile), and glabellar lines (vertical lines between your eyebrows when you frown). Other uses can include jaw slimming, dimpling chins, gummy smiles, nasal wrinkle, and excessive under arm perspiration.
How it works?
The protein is administered into selected facial muscles using a very fine needle, by multiple injection sites within a concentrated area, over span of about 5-10 minutes. Patients can expect minimal discomfort during the administration process and can expect post-treatment effects to settle within 3-5 days. A week after administration, patients can expect to realize maximum effects of the procedure.
Patients may resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. Common side effects, as with all injectable products, include swelling, bruising, bleeding, and itching at the injection site. Most side effects resolve themselves naturally within 24 hours.
Results will vary slightly depending on each patient’s muscularity, but most experience that the procedure can last 4-6 months. Repeat treatments tend to work shorter amounts of time due to the body forming a resistance to the product.
