One of the easiest and most affordable ways to look years younger is treatment with a neuromodulator. The most commonly used products are Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau. These simple treatments are now the #1 non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the world.
What are Neuromodulators?
These products are highly purified natural proteins that relax wrinkle-causing muscles, creating a smother and improved appearance.
How does it work?
Botox, Dysport and Jeuveau are delivered via a few tiny injections directly in the area of concern. This causes a local effect that blocks the message from the nerve to the muscle, so that the muscle doesn’t contract. This creates a smoother more relaxed look.
Where are they used?
Neuromodulators can be used in many places on the face. While they have gained official approval to smooth out dynamic wrinkles between the eyes (frown lines) and crow’s feet, the list of areas where neuromodulators are utilized in our practice is fairly extensive and includes:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Bunny lines
- Gummy smile
- Lip lines
- Jaw lines
- Chin Dimpling
- Neck bands
- Sweaty armpits and hands
Neuromodulators have also been used with great success to treat blephrospam (muscular spasms around the eyes) and migraine headaches.
What is the difference between the various neuromodulators?
These products are very similar to each other and have the same active central core. They are made by different companies, both competing for the same patients and treating the same cosmetic concerns. Botox has been around the longest is more widely known. The units are not interchangeable (as you need more units of Dysport to get the same effect as a given number of units of Botox or Jeuveau). The price per unit is also not the same, and varies from practice to practice. Some patients find that one product performs better for them than another (with a more aesthetically pleasing result, quicker onset of action or longer lasting results), but this varies from patient to patient. When it comes right down to it, it’s a personal choice that is best made with your provider.
What is a treatment like?
The treatment is quick and minimally invasive, and usually takes just a few minutes. A few tiny punctures are made on the skin and the medication is superficially injected. There is minimal discomfort, no downtime, and you can return to work immediately afterwards.
When will I see results?
You can begin to see results as early as 2-3 days after treatment, with maximum effects seen at day 10-14. Results typically last 3-4 months after the first treatment. With regular treatments, results can last even longer.
Can I afford it?
The better question is, can you afford not to do it? Botox, Dysport and Jeuveau can truly change the way you look and feel. Treatment with one of these neuromodulators is one of the best values of all cosmetic treatments, and can help you to look young longer. You owe it to yourself. Schedule your treatment now!
