Neuromodulators like BOTOX and Dysport are injectables that target facial muscles to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Commonly used in areas like the forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines, they restore a youthful appearance by relaxing muscle contractions. XO Aesthetics offers personalized neuromodulators in Shelby Township to help you restore a youthful complexion.

facial wrinkles

Neuromodulators are injectable substances that target nerve endings to temporarily relax muscles, commonly used in cosmetic procedures to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. BOTOX and Dysport are popular examples, consisting of botulinum toxin type A. By blocking nerve signals to muscles, they smooth out facial lines in areas like the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows (frown lines), helping you achieve a more youthful appearance.

Neuromodulators treat:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Bunny lines on the nose
  • Vertical lip lines (smoker’s lines)
  • Chin dimpling
  • Neck bands

How neuromodulators work

Neuromodulators work by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. They target the neuromuscular junction, where nerves meet muscles, blocking the transmission of signals from nerves to muscles. By preventing muscle contractions, they relax the overactive muscles responsible for wrinkles and fine lines. The temporary paralysis induced by neuromodulators in Shelby Township lasts several months, after which nerve function gradually returns, allowing muscle activity—and thus wrinkles—to gradually reappear.

Benefits of neuromodulators:

  • Non-invasive treatment
  • Quick procedure with little to no downtime
  • Results visible within days
  • Results last up to 6 months
  • Versatile application for various facial areas and concerns
  • Generally safe with few side effects
  • Can be combined with other cosmetic treatments

BOTOX vs. Dysport

We offer a range of neuromodulators, including BOTOX and Dysport, to address your cosmetic needs. BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) is renowned for its efficacy in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Its precise formulation allows for targeted treatment, offering smooth and natural-looking results. Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) is another popular option known for its fast-acting nature, with results often visible sooner than those from BOTOX. Its diffusion properties make it particularly suitable for larger treatment areas, such as the forehead.

  • Refrain from strenuous exercise or activities that increase blood flow to the face for 24 hours.
  • Stay upright for at least 4 hours after treatment to prevent the migration of the neurotoxin.
  • Avoid excessive heat exposure, including saunas and hot baths, for the first few days.

Neuromodulators FAQs

Are neuromodulators safe?

When administered by our aesthetic providers, neuromodulators are generally safe. Like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, such as bruising or temporary drooping of nearby muscles, but these are rare and temporary.

How long do neuromodulators last?

The effects of neuromodulators in Shelby Township typically last between 3 and 6 months, varying from person to person based on factors such as metabolism and treatment area.

Is there any downtime after a neuromodulator treatment?

There is minimal downtime associated with neuromodulator treatments. You can resume your normal activities immediately afterward, although it’s advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and certain facial treatments for the first 24 hours.

Are neuromodulator injections painful?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during neuromodulator injections, often described as a slight pinch or sting. We can also offer numbing cream or ice to alleviate any discomfort.

Can neuromodulators be used for preventive purposes?

Some individuals opt for neuromodulators in their late 20s or early 30s to prevent the formation of wrinkles. Since neuromodulators can temporarily paralyze targeted facial muscles, they help prevent the contractions that gradually lead to dynamic wrinkles. This approach, referred to as “preventative BOTOX,” can help maintain a youthful appearance over time.
