Neuromodulator Injections Reduce Wrinkles
Neuromodulator is a protein that prevents the movement of muscles, it can be used with great precision and in tiny quantities to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles in the face and neck. When we think about wrinkles, we define them as dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by muscle movement and static lines are caused by aging, gravity, loss of collagen, loss of elastin, and loss of mass. Neuromodulators treat dynamic wrinkles. Interestingly, neuromodulator injections can also be used to treat migraines and excessive sweating.
During a treatment of neuromodulator, the tiny injections are targeted to smooth out lines and wrinkles. In general, it takes 2-7 days to start taking effect, we recommend giving it 2 weeks to see the results. It is not permanent and on average lasts 3-4 months, but it may last 2-6 months. There is also new clinical data emerging showing that starting early has a preventative effect on developing wrinkles and also new data showing that using higher dosages results in longer duration of results. Neuromodulator has been approved in the U.S. for nearly 20 years to be a safe and effective cosmetic and medical treatment.
CURRENTLY, THERE ARE FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF NEUROMODULATOR THAT WE USE. THEY ARE BOTOX, DYSPORT, XEOMIN, AND JEUVEAU.
AGING + WRINKLES: Understand Your Skin
The more you know about your skin’s aging process, the better you’ll be able to keep it looking its best. Scroll down for helpful information and tips about between the brow frown lines and wrinkles so you and your healthcare provider can decide if Dysport is right for you.
Frown Line Facts
FACT 1: CREAMS & LOTIONS AREN’T YOUR ONLY OPTIONS
When it comes to improving the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, a prescription treatment may be the right choice for lasting results.
FACT 2: IT’S NOT JUST AN AGE THING
Wrinkles and frown lines between the brows are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions1, which means they can even develop in younger adults.
Dysport helps you soften frown lines between your brows—with natural-looking, long-lasting results.
FACT 3: YOU CAN FIGHT FROWN LINES
Life happens – and so do wrinkles. Dysport is here to help you soften lines between your eyebrows, so you can live the look that’s expressly you.
LET’S GET SERIOUS ABOUT SKIN
Yes, there’s a science behind youthful-looking skin. It starts with hyaluronic acid, the naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps give it a full, youthful look.2 As we age, hyaluronic acid diminishes, causing our skin to look thinner, drier and more wrinkled.2,3 Several other scientific factors may lead to less youthful skin with more wrinkles, including:
- Redistribution of facial fat3
- Loss of fat in the forehead and cheeks
- Gain of fat in the mouth and jaw area, which can cause sagging
- Bone loss throughout your face4
- Muscle laxity4
- External factors, such as sun damage or smoking
AVOID UV EXPOSURE
Excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays is thought to be a major culprit for rapidly aging skin. Sun damages your skin and causes a loss of collagen, which can lead to drooping and wrinkles.2 If you’re the outdoorsy type, think sunblock and shade to help keep your skin as healthy and young-looking as possible.
Drinking plenty of water will help prevent your skin from becoming overly dry.
AVOID PROCESSED FOODS AND SUGARS
When sugar comes in contact with collagen (a protein), a reaction called glycation occurs. Glycation can damage collagen, compromise the integrity and regeneration of skin tissue, and accelerate aging of the skin.
AGING IN MEN
Gentlemen, congratulations on making the bold choice to treat your frown lines between your eyebrows. The fact is, because your face moves when you frown, smile or squint, frown lines can still appear even if you use the best men’s skin care products. And, as a man, your expression lines tend to be deeper, so a prescription injection could be the treatment you need to get the natural look you want. Check out our gallery to see how Dysport can help improve the appearance of between-the-brow frown lines for men.
AGING IN WOMEN
Work out. Eat right. Take care of your skin. Rinse. Repeat. It’s your every day. Everything you do in your daily routine can help you stay happy and healthy. But sometimes, for those inevitable things in life — like frown lines between the eyebrows — a step outside the routine may be in order. Everybody ages differently, but if you express yourself through movements in your face (like most people do), Dysport can help smooth those frown lines and get the natural look you want
Fillers are naturally occurring substances that can be injected to restore, create, contour, and enhance volume. As we age, we lose volume in the form of bone, fat, muscle, and collagen. This results in loss of structure and support in the face, which also causes us to look older and more tired. Common areas that lose volume include the cheeks, temples, and lips. Simply restoring this volume loss with filler, can recreate a more youthful appearance. In addition, filler can be used to create contour in the cheek bone and jaw to further enhance your appearance. Lip filler can be used to enhance the shape and volume of the lips.
We primarily use hyaluronic acid fillers, which is a substance found naturally in the body. These fillers are not permanent and can easily be dissolved with an enzyme. In general, they last anywhere from 6-24 months. The longevity of filler depends on where it is injected and your metabolism as well as other factors, such as heat,sun exposure, and dehydration.
