Wrinkles and fine lines can be some of the most frustrating parts of getting older. To help our clients combat dynamic wrinkles, Improve Health Solutions offers the neuromodulators BOTOX® and Xeomin® to temporarily smooth the skin and improve overall appearance.
What are Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators are physician-administered injectable treatments that are used to remove wrinkles and fine lines temporarily. These products are so widely used because they effectively attack wrinkles at their source: the muscles.
As you go about your day-to-day life, you make a broad range of facial expressions and movements. While these are a natural part of a full life, over time these facial expressions can cause the skin to become looser. In turn, this begins the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Neuromodulators like BOTOX® and Xeomin® paralyze these muscles, giving your skin time to smooth over once prominent wrinkles. Neuromodulators temporarily paralyze the muscles using different formulations of botulinum toxin. Since these neuromodulators eventually leave the body, the results they bring only last between 3-6 months.
FDA approved for the treatment of fine lines and dynamic wrinkles in 2002, BOTOX® is one of the most widely known injectable products available today. BOTOX® are extremely safe, fast, and effective. The injections themselves only take a few minutes, making it a convenient lunchtime procedure. Results take 3-7 days to show, and last between 3-6 months.
Xeomin® is another popular neuromodulator. Unlike BOTOX®, Xeomin® is chemically purified, consisting only of botulinum toxin with no additional additives. While this reduces the chance of an adverse reaction, it also causes the toxin to be flushed out of the body more quickly. Because of this, the results of Xeomin® injections typically only last for 3-4 months. Like BOTOX®, Xeomin® injections are so easy to administer and can be performed over a period of only a couple of minutes, so you can receive them during your lunch break and be back at work with time to spare.
Similar to the effects of other neuromodulators, Dysport® is has been tested and approved for the temporary of reduction of moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows without looking exaggerated, frozen, or overdone. Treatment with Dysport® ensures that you will still maintain your normal range of facial expressions without any tell-tale signs that you have had an aesthetic procedure done.
How Do I Know Which is Right for Me?
Before you receive either injection, you need to schedule a consultation appointment at our office. During this appointment, a member of our trained medical staff will take into account your aesthetic goals, medical history, and current state of health and help decide which neuromodulator is right for you.
