WRINKLE RELAXERS

What are wrinkle relaxers?

Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin make muscles in the face and neck relax, flattening wrinkles, lines, and deep furrows in the process.  The effect is temporary, but over time wrinkles will actually fade.

How do neuromodulators work?

Neuromodulators are a therapeutic agent derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum.  Small doses target muscles contraction that leads to wrinkles.  The neuromodulator blocks the electrical communication between your nerve cells and muscles, which normally tells the muscles to contract.  By reducing the ability of muscle contraction, wrinkles are decreased.  

How long does the effect of neuromodulator last?

About 3-4 months depending on the individual, but with time, less neuromodulator may be required as the muscles causing the wrinkles will weaken.

When will I see results?

Results usually are noticed in 3-5 days, but the full effect isn’t seen for about 2 weeks.

What does treatment cost?

Each brand of neuromodulator has different pricing.  Pricing will vary throughout the year, depending on office specials and company promotions. For the most up to date pricing, please call our office.

For new patients, a short consultation with our doctor or PA is required before neuromodulator treatment.  Consultations are complimentary, and neuromodulator treatment can immediately follow the consultation.

How many units will I need?

Men, on average need more units per site than women. Each “site” has a range of units needed to get the desired effect:

Most common sites:

Glabella  (10-50 units) – The frown lines between the eyes. This is the most popular site to treat.

Crow’s feet (10-20 units)-  Let us remove the wrinkle lines from around your eyes!

Forehead lines (6-20 units)-  Relax those horizontal forehead lines for a more relaxed, youthful appearance.

Around the mouth (4-10) units- Relax downturned corners of the mouth and relax wrinkles around the lips.  We can also relax the lips, giving a “lip flip”  for a  fuller appearance.                                 

Bunny lines (5-10 units)- The lines on either side of your nose when you scrunch your face

“Chemical” Brow lift (5-10 units)- We can place a small amount of neuromodulator to bring the outside of the brow up, giving you a more lively appearance.
