A neuromodulator is a type of injectable neurotoxin, also known as Botox or Dysport, that when injected block signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing the muscle from contracting. These products can be safely injected into the face in order to cause temporary paralysis of the muscles softening wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming. This is a great non-surgical treatment for both men and women to give the ability to smooth out dynamic wrinkles or wrinkles that form as a result of facial movements like frowning, squinting, smiling, or other facial movements we perform every day. Over time these contractions can begin to create fine lines and wrinkles on the surface skin. Both Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved products that can treat these lines around your eyes, between your brows, forehead and more. At Stiller Aesthetics, neuromodulator injections are a quick and easy way to feel refreshed and leave you with results that are natural.
If your concern more closely aligns with deeper wrinkles or volume loss in areas such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, parentheses lines, cheek volume loss, or thin lips then dermal filler injections may be a better option for you.
During your consultation, we will review your goals and help guide you in defining what is most bothersome for you. The details of Botox and Dysport will be reviewed so we can best choose what is right for you. Often times, treatment can occur the same day. The process is quick and easy and takes no more than 30 minutes. The skin is cleansed, injection points are mapped out and multiple injections are made based on the number of areas treated.
After your treatment, there may be a small degree of redness or swelling at the injection site however this will fade shortly. Due to the fact that this treatment is minimally invasive, patients are able to return to their normal activities right away. However, it's encouraged to refrain from lying face down, working out or applying makeup to the area for 4 hours after your treatment. Depending on your neuromodulator, you can begin to see results at 3 days however full results can take 10-14 days. For most patients, the results of your injections will last 3-4 months. For best results, it is recommended to stay on a 3-4 month regimen for neuromodulators as deep resting wrinkles do not vanish after one treatment.
