What are Neuromodulators? (Botox®, Dysport®)
Neuromodulators are a safe and common method of smoothing lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox® and Dysport® are the only FDA approved products in the United States. They use the power of nature tempered by science to relax away wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. Neuromodulators are FDA approved to treat the frown line, but are often used to treat the horizontal forehead lines, squint lines, vertical lip lines, rough texture of the chin, down turned corners of the mouth and neck banding.
How do Neuromodulators work?
Neuromodulators work by blocking the release of a chemical called acetylcholine that causes the muscles to contract. When the muscles are relaxed the skin lays flat which greatly reduces the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Neuromodulators only work in areas where lines and wrinkles are forms through consistent repetitive movement.
Are Neuromodulators safe?
Neuromodulator injections are very safe treatments to have. There is no down time and the most common complication that occurs is minimal discomfort or a small bruise at the injection site. Mild headaches, body aches, and brow or lid relaxation are rare side effects that typically last anywhere between 1-2 weeks.
What should I expect after a Neuromodulator treatment?
