When it comes to reducing the visible signs of aging, today’s cosmetic treatments can achieve natural, impressive results. The experts at Beach Cities Vein & Laser Center in El Segundo, CA can help you choose from a number of neuromodulator injectables, such as Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau. These injections are specially formulated to relax the facial muscles and minimize your wrinkles.
What Is a Neuromodulator?
A neuromodulator is a highly-purified natural protein that can soften your appearance by restricting the movement of specific facial muscles. When injected into the skin, a neuromodulator reduces the activity of facial muscles that cause deep lines, folds, and wrinkles to form. When these facial muscles weaken, wrinkles gradually soften, and you achieve a more refreshed, relaxed look.
Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are the most well-known cosmetic injectables that are excellent for minimizing the appearance of:
- Frown lines
- Laugh lines
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
When Should You Get Cosmetic Injections?
Many people choose to wait to see wrinkles before deciding to get a cosmetic treatment. But did you know that we can use cosmetic injections to delay the appearance of wrinkles? When injected into the muscles near the mouth, eye, and forehead areas, a neuromodulator can slow down the development of visible signs of aging. As a result, you can preserve a youthful look for many more years.
The area between the eyebrows and the forehead are the ideal places to get an early cosmetic injection. Deep lines and dynamic wrinkles that appear in these areas can be challenging to treat once they appear.
What You Can Expect From the Treatment
Do you want your face to look smooth and relaxed but not frozen? Thanks to developments in the technique used to perform cosmetic injections, you can achieve a smoother, more youthful look without worrying about looking unnatural. For example, we can soften your wrinkles instead of completely freezing or erasing them.
Short, Convenient Appointments
First, we will assess your skin condition and discuss your personal goals to determine the best technique to use. What you expect to achieve from the treatment will also determine how long exactly your appointments will take. The injection process, however, usually takes less than 15 minutes. There’s no need to block your schedule and interrupt your routine to receive treatments.
No Recovery Period
The treatment involves a superficial injection of neuromodulator proteins into the skin. We’ll make a few small punctures in the target areas and use a topical anesthetic to ensure you’re comfortable. There’s no downtime or recovery period associated with the treatments. You can resume your daily activities and work as soon as you have finished the appointment.
Within seven days, you’ll notice visible results from the injections. Expect to notice a smoother, refreshed appearance in the targeted areas. Your results will continue to improve, and you’ll see the best results after two weeks.
What Affects the Quality of Your Results?
When it comes to cosmetic injectables, the quality of the results you get mainly depends on the skill and expertise of the professional performing the injections. That’s why it’s crucial to find and choose a practice you can trust. With the correct technique and strategy, we can help you get natural-looking results and enhance your self-confidence. Here’s how we make sure that you get consistent, impressive results:
With years of experience in performing advanced cosmetic treatments, we can help you achieve a beautiful, natural result by using just the right amount of injectable. We can avoid “freezing” your facial muscles and restore a natural yet softened look by using the right amount or units of the cosmetic injectable.
Where exactly we place the injections will significantly affect your results. Therefore, each injection must be strategically and precisely done. You’ll get the best results when only the specific muscles that cause wrinkling and facial folds are treated. You can trust that our team will provide you with the best possible outcomes by using tried and proven techniques.
A month after the treatment, your results should still be visible and noticeable. Others may see some wrinkles and movements returning in the treated area, but how long exactly your results last can vary. To maintain your results, follow-up treatments are scheduled after four months following your last session.
Which Neuromodulator Is Best for You?
Adding injectables to your routine cosmetic treatments can be exciting. There are a few choices that we offer at our practice. We can help you decide which one is best for you after discussing your expectations and personal goals.
Do you have deep wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines? Botox is one of the solutions we offer. We inject this neuromodulating agent into the superficial muscles of expression to block nerve signals. Botox prevents deep wrinkles from forming when you laugh, smile, or frown. It’s also used to soften deep wrinkles and make you look younger without compromising your ability to make facial expressions.
With Botox, you can expect a smoother and more youthful appearance without the need for any surgery or downtime. Within a week after your injections, you should see visible results that will last for 3-4 months.
Over time, dynamic wrinkles develop and are caused by recurrent facial expressions, such as laughing, smiling, and frowning. When injected into the face, Dysport can relax wrinkles and reduce the dynamic lines that appear with age.
Dysport works similarly to Botox when it comes to achieving a softer, more youthful appearance. We use this neuromodulating agent to reduce furrowed lines that appear even when your face is relaxed. Dysport temporarily softens the targeted muscles, giving you natural-looking results. As a result, you get skin that appears younger and smoother.
Dysport injections are made of smaller molecules that diffuse more effectively once injected. Therefore, you can expect faster results from this treatment. As soon as two days after receiving the injection, you should see visible results that can last up to 2-4 months.
Are you looking for an alternative to Botox and Dysport? Jeuveau is a neuromodulator injectable that was formulated and developed strictly for cosmetic uses. It contains a purified form of botulinum toxin. Jeuveau is known for temporarily reducing muscle activity that causes severe frown lines. This injectable blocks nerve signals in the muscles, thus effectively decreasing movement lines.
The results from a Jeuveau injection appear gradually. After receiving injections, you can expect to see visible changes in five to seven days. The muscle activity that results in frown lines and wrinkles will slowly diminish. After two weeks, you should see the final results of your injections. Your smoother, more natural look can last anywhere from three to four months.
Who Are Ideal Candidates for Cosmetic Injectables?
Are you bothered by the visible signs of aging? Getting a cosmetic injection is a life-changing choice if you have moderate to severe facial wrinkles in the forehead, neck, or eye areas. You’re an ideal candidate for this treatment if you have good overall health and have realistic expectations about what the injections can achieve.
Those with skin infections, muscle or nerve diseases, or severe illnesses are not ideal candidates for the treatment. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are also not encouraged to get cosmetic injections.
