Neuromodulators...how do they work? What do they do? How long do they last? How much does it cost?

Botox is the most trusted of several neuromodulators that all act in a similar way. Neuromodulators work by changing the way messaging is conducted between nerves and muscles. Used in very small amounts for cosmetic purposes, they relax facial muscles that cause excessive animation of the face. Animation of the face is, of course, a good thing. Excessive animation, however, causes wrinkles that eventually become permanently etched into our features. Even those who have not yet developed wrinkles love the cosmetic improvements neuromodulators can offer to one’s appearance. As a means of anti-aging, starting early is a brilliant form of prevention.

Do you ever wonder why some of your friends look so much younger than you do? Maybe they are using Botox! Neuromodulators are the #1 aesthetics treatment in the world!  Women and men worldwide are using them to improve their appearance. If you want to reverse the signs of facial aging, these tiny injections can erase years off your appearance within days of treatment. Dynamic wrinkles disappear! Deeper wrinkles will gradually soften and fade with continued use for further anti-aging benefits!  

The age you start is the age you stay! 

Young people are using neuromodulators as a means of preventing wrinkles, and for the many other cosmetic benefits, they offer. It seems that everyone looks better after a little Vitamin B, as it is fondly called! Even those who have not yet developed wrinkles love the improvements this treatment can offer to one’s appearance. As a means of anti-aging, starting early is a brilliant form of prevention.

Look relaxed, happy and refreshed!

Neuromodulators are also known as neurotoxins, and they work by changing the way messaging is conducted between nerves and muscles.  Don’t let the word toxin scare you. As a medication, it is extremely safe, and cosmetically it is used in very small doses. The toxin works by relaxing facial muscles that cause excessive animation of the face. Animation of the face is, of course, a good thing. Excessive animation, however, causes wrinkles that eventually become permanently etched into our features. Not only can these lines age us in appearance, but they can also make us appear angry, sad, tired or stressed out. Neuromodulators can smooth the muscles that cause this and relax other muscles for cosmetic benefit as well.

How much does it cost?

The cost of neuromodulators can vary greatly from clinic to clinic. At Skinpossible the price is based on dosing and you only pay for what you use. The amount of medication required varies from person to person based on the degree of relaxation desired and the strength of the muscles being treated. Those with stronger muscles generally require higher dosing and some metabolize the toxin faster than others. The cost for maintenance may come down with extended use, as excessively strong muscles will usually weaken over time and require lower dosing.  

Comfortable, fast and long-lasting!

Neuromodulators are administered by injection, but the syringes are so tiny they don’t feel like much more than a mosquito bite. After the treatment, the medication will start to relax the treated muscles within three to five days and be fully effective within two weeks. The benefits wear off gradually, lasting an average of four months!  For the first few weeks, the muscle may be completely immobilized. Some people like this but it is not the long-term goal. As the neurotoxin loses its effect, the ability to animate the features becomes possible, but facial lines remain subtle.  

You don’t need to do it forever!

There is a misconception that once you start using neuromodulators you can’t stop, or you will look worse. Nothing could be further from the truth! If you use this class of medications for a few years and then stop, the muscles will eventually strengthen again. Wrinkles and lines will gradually return but they will always be less extreme than they otherwise would have if you had never relaxed them for a period of time. To maintain the beautiful age-defying effects of this amazing treatment it is recommended that you return for treatment before the visible benefits wear off completely.

You don’t need to continue, but you will want to!

 

Approved and off-label uses for cosmetic purposes include:

  • Frown Lines: As we concentrate or frown, vertical lines appear between the brows. Over time, these lines tend to deepen and make us appear angry or stressed.
  • Forehead Lines: As we raise our eyebrows, horizontal lines appear across the forehead. As these lines become permanently etched, they age us in appearance.
  • Crow’s Feet: Creases that appear at the outer corners of our eyes when we smile and squint tend to deepen and lengthen as we age. These can easily be relaxed.
  • Eyebrow Shaping: A subtle elevation and arch in the brow can be created to reduce hooding of the lid and open up the eyes for a rested and refreshed appearance. 
  • Lip Lines: Smoking, puckering or just talking can cause lines to develop around our mouth. Also known as a lip flip, relaxing this muscle reduces lip lines. 
  • Bunny Lines: Squinting of the eyes and flaring of the nostrils cause lines on the sides of the nose that are extreme for some people. These can be relaxed.
  • Downturned lips: Strong oral depressor muscles can turn the lips downward and cause creases at the corners of the mouth. This is another inexpensive fix.

    Gummy Smile: The beauty of a smile can be diminished if too much gum is visible above the teeth. This can be fixed with a small amount of toxin.
  • Neck Bands: Bands in the neck can be relaxed for dramatic improvement in face and definition of the jawline. This popular treatment is known as a Nefertiti Neck Lift. 
  • Face Slimming: Strong masseters can make the jawline appear masculine. Relaxing them feminizes features and reduces teeth grinding as an added benefit.
