What are Injectable Neuromodulators?
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are two of the most popular injectable neuromodulators available today. While facial fillers target wrinkles caused by collagen depletion, neuromodulators address a different contributing factor to wrinkles: muscle movement. Most of the wrinkles that appear between the eyebrows, in the corner of the eyes, and across the forehead are dynamic wrinkles or wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® address these wrinkles by targeting the muscles that cause them to form. This is done by injecting a formula of botulinum toxin into the affected area. Botulinum toxin slows down the neural activity of these muscles, allowing the wrinkles above them to soften and smooth over. Only specific muscles are precisely targeted so that patients are still able to move their faces naturally after treatment. Because the effects of the botulinum toxin only last for four months, repeated injections will be need to be undergoing to maintain results.
The most popular product of its kind, BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied aesthetic treatments available today. It has been approved for use in 78 countries and has been administered for over 17 years. BOTOX® Cosmetic can successfully treat frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, vertical lip lines, and chin dimpling.
Each BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment takes between 10-20 minutes to complete, with initial results appearing within 48 hours. The results of an injection session last up to four months, after which the botulinum toxin is mostly eliminated from the body. In order to sustain any results seen from treatment, periodic injections of are BOTOX® Cosmetic required.
Approved for use in 57 countries, Dysport® is a reputable injectable neuromodulator with over 25 years of clinical experience. It is especially effective for use in softening wrinkles and fine lines between the eyebrows. Each treatment takes as little as 10 minutes, and improvements can be seen 2-3 days after you leave our office. Because the results of a Dysport® injection session last up to four months, periodic treatments will be necessary to maintain any visible changes.
