Animation of the face is, of course, a good thing. Excessive animation, however, causes wrinkles that can eventually become static and permanently etched into our features. Not only can these deep lines age us in appearance, but they can also make us appear angry, sad, tired or stressed out when we are, in fact, happy, awake and relaxed. A class of medications known as neuromodulators can relax muscles to create a more relaxed and more youthful appearance.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 ageing, 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.
Neuromodulators are a class of medications that change the way that messaging is conducted between nerves and muscles. Neuromodulators have many uses within medicine including the treatment of chronic migraines, severe underarm sweating, blepharospasm (eyelid spasm), strabismus (misalignment of the eyes when one or both eyes turn inward or outward) and more. Cosmetically, they are used in very small doses to relax muscles that cause excessive animation of the face.The goal is to relax the muscles to smooth out animation lines. Dosing that is too high can freeze features and create a rather odd-looking appearance. Moderate dosing, on the other hand, creates a natural, youthful-looking appearance that you will love.
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.
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.
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!

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 the 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.
