Resolve & Suppress Unwanted Expression Lines

Dynamic wrinkles are the types of wrinkles that appear on your face while making certain expressions, such as laughing or frowning. That’s why they’re also called expression lines. When you’re young, expression lines only appear when you actively communicate certain expressions. But as you grow older, the underlying facial muscles deepen, leading to the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on your face, making you look frustrated and upset. Neuromodulators allow us to reduce and soften these dynamic wrinkles.

What are Neuromodulators?

Neuromodulators, such as Botox and Dysport, are cosmetic injections of botulinum toxin type A, which can temporarily paralyze targeted facial muscles. When injected into the facial muscles responsible for your expression lines, such as the forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet, neuromodulators temporarily block communication between your muscles and nerve fibers. Consequently, the facial muscles stop contracting, which reduces the prominence of the unwanted dynamic wrinkles. The results appear gradually over several days.

Botox vs. Dysport

Dysport and Botox are different brands for the same substance — botulinum toxin type A. Besides the primary neurotoxin protein, both products have slightly different formulations that can lead to slightly different results. While Botox is FDA-approved to correct forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet, Dysport is only FDA-approved for frown lines. However, both neuromodulators can be used for numerous other dynamic wrinkles on the face. The differences in results are negligible — our medical providers will select the appropriate product for you.

The Complete Neuromodulator Treatment

Your neuromodulator treatment starts with a consultation, during which the medical provider carefully examines your facial skin and discusses your goals. The medical provider curates a personalized treatment plan, marking the injection points and selecting the appropriate neurotoxin and units. The chosen product is carefully injected into the targeted facial muscles using extremely small needles, causing little to no discomfort. After injecting the product, a facial massager is used to reduce swelling.

Neuromodulators: Recovery & Downtime

Thanks to our unique neuromodulator technique, you don’t have to worry about harsh side effects. You can expect mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection points. However, since we limit the number of injection points, the post-treatment side effects are minimal. There’s no downtime, so you can resume your daily activities immediately, but you must avoid strenuous workouts for a few days.

Neuromodulators: Results & Longevity

The results of your neuromodulators will gradually appear over several days. You might start noticing a reduction in wrinkles after 3 to 4 days, but the results will finalize after 2 weeks. The final results last for 3 to 4 months, following which you need additional treatments. Most patients opt for 2 to 4 treatments per year to maintain youthful skin and prevent new wrinkles.
