Many skincare products can offer temporary relief, but they don’t address the underlying cause of wrinkles: muscle activity beneath the skin’s surface. Neuromodulators, however, do just that. These injectable treatments target specific muscles responsible for causing creases and wrinkles, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin. And, because they work beneath the surface, they can even prevent future wrinkles from forming.
At BevelUp in Tampa, FL, we offer several options for injectable neuromodulators that can give you smoother, younger-looking skin. Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are all FDA-approved injectables that work to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. For those looking to improve on their journey for anti-aging, we recommend our neuromodulators for you.
What Are Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators, such as Botox and Xeomin, are injectable medications primarily used in cosmetic procedures to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. But they can also be used for various medical purposes, including chronic migraine prevention, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms.
How do neuromodulators work? They block signals from the nerves to the muscles, causing them to relax and soften. This decrease in muscle activity leads to a smoothing of the skin’s appearance. Results typically last about three to four months before the effects wear off and re-treatment is necessary.
Botox, a branded form of botulinum toxin, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures used to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The toxin blocks nerve signals to the injected muscles, causing them to relax and appear smoother. Botox can be used for many cosmetic benefits, such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead wrinkles
- Nasolabial folds
- Preventative treatments for future wrinkles
- Smoother, tighter skin overall
While commonly associated with facial features like crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles, Botox can also be used for medical purposes such as treating excessive sweating or muscle spasms. It’s important to note that Botox results are not permanent, lasting anywhere from three to six months on average before touch-up injections are needed.
Xeomin, also known as incobotulinum toxin A, is a minimally invasive injectable treatment option. Xeomin injectables can treat dynamic wrinkles in adults, such as frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes. Xeomin can also be used for cosmetic purposes, including lifting the brows and increasing fullness in the lips.
Like other neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport, Xeomin injectables work by temporarily blocking nerve signals in the treated muscles, causing them to relax and soften the appearance of wrinkles. Xeomin differs from its competitors in that it does not contain any additional proteins, making it less likely to cause an immune reaction in certain patients.
Dysport is a popular injectable treatment that helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dysport works similarly to other injectables like Botox, as it relaxes the muscles in the targeted area to create a smoother appearance. However, many people find that Dysport injectables have a quicker onset of action and can last up to four months.
Dysport injectables are commonly used on areas like the forehead and around the eyes. However, they can also be used for forehead creases, bunny lines on the nose, and even to create a slimmer jawline or diminish neck bands. Ultimately, Dysport can be an excellent option for those looking for minimally invasive ways to address signs of aging.
How Do Neuromodulators Work?
Neuromodulators, commonly known as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, work by blocking the signals that cause muscle contraction. This temporary inhibition of muscle movement can reduce unwanted wrinkles and lines on the face. In addition to being used for facial wrinkle reduction, these neuromodulators can also help with excessive sweating, migraines, and muscle spasms. While they are frequently used in cosmetic procedures, they also have significant medical benefits.
What Are the Benefits of Using Injectable Neuromodulators for Skin Care?
Injectable neuromodulators temporarily block the nerves’ signals that cause muscle contractions, leading to softer lines and wrinkles. Neuromodulators smooth out dynamic wrinkles due to repetitive facial expressions, such as frown lines or crow’s feet. Unlike more invasive procedures like fillers or surgery, neuromodulators are minimally invasive, with little to no downtime.
Regular treatment can even help prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming in the first place. In addition to smoothing lines and wrinkles, neuromodulators can also improve the appearance of vertical neck bands and define the jawline for a more lifted, youthful appearance. When you work with us, neuromodulator treatments can provide stunning results without an overly “frozen” appearance.
How Can You Tell If Neuromodulators Are Right for You?
It is essential to consider whether or not you are a good candidate for the treatment. Some clients choose neuromodulators to address existing wrinkles and fine lines, while others use them for preventative measures. The best way to determine whether this treatment is right for you is by scheduling a consultation with us. We can assess your skin and discuss your desired outcome to determine if neuromodulators could be a good fit for you.
