What Are Neuromodulators?
Injectable neuromodulator treatments aim to temporarily block nerve signals to the underlying muscles that cause the skin to wrinkle, relaxing those wrinkles and smoothing skin. Neuromodulators are FDA-approved and safely formulated with purified forms of the botulinum toxin A to reduce moderate and severe lines and wrinkles.
By relaxing muscles only in the treated areas, neuromodulators help reduce the appearance of deep lines and prevent new fine lines from forming without hampering other facial movements. To create natural-looking results for each patient, our aesthetic experts are meticulous in their treatment of the muscles that cause the skin to wrinkle.
In the upper facial region, neuromodulators can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in various areas, including:
- Eyes, or crow’s feet
- Glabellar region, also known as frown lines or the 11s, caused by the procerus muscle
- Nose, or bunny lines
- Brows for a non-surgical brow lift
In the lower face, neuromodulators can relax specific muscles to improve the appearance of:
- Gummy smile by relaxing the upper lip
- DAO, the Depressor Anguli Oris muscle, which pulls the corners of the mouth down
- Masseter muscles for facial slimming and reducing muscle clenching of the jawline
- Vertical neck bands or cords
Types of Neuromodulators
At Florida Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, our aesthetic specialists offer:
Neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Daxxify work in a similar manner to smooth the appearance of fine lines and create a youthful appearance by preventing repetitive muscular movements. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin use similar formulas, but Daxxify is the first and only FDA-approved, peptide-powered neuromodulator.
Results typically appear in ten to fourteen days following a neuromodulator treatment, and patients will continue to see improvements for up to a month. Neuromodulator treatments take only a few minutes, require no downtime, and have minimal discomfort.
When it comes to neuromodulators, one important factor is the longevity of their results. Typically, results from Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin last 2 to 4 months. Daxxify, the newest brand of neuromodulator, offers results that last around 6 months.
Good Candidates for Neuromodulators
The adverse effects of aging can impact our self-esteem and our overall feelings of wellness. Neuromodulators help you diminish the physical signs of aging for a refreshed, revitalized, and more youthful-looking appearance that can boost your confidence.
Ideal candidates for neuromodulators are women and men who are generally healthy and are looking to improve the signs of aging in the face. They want minimally invasive rejuvenation options to restore their more youthful appearance.
Candidates should also:
- Be at least 18 years of age
- Be non-smokers, or willing to quit prior to beginning treatment
- Live a healthy lifestyle, including an exercise program and healthy diet
- Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
- Have no history of neuromuscular diseases
- Understand the risks of the treatment
- Have a positive outlook and realistic goals
- Be prepared to closely follow instructions
Preparing for Your Neuromodulator Treatment
For a few days prior to your procedure, our aesthetic experts recommend stopping medications or supplements that contain aspirin, vitamin E, garlic, fish oil, or zinc as these can cause bleeding or bruising. Be sure to discuss any medical conditions you have or medications that you’re taking with our MedSpa experts prior to beginning a neuromodulator procedure. For 24 to 48 hours prior to your neuromodulator treatment, avoid consuming alcohol.
For at least 48 hours prior to and following your neuromodulator procedure, smoking, vaping, or any other nicotine products are prohibited. Nicotine constricts blood vessels and affects the body’s ability to heal itself, potentially impacting your recovery. Smoking or other nicotine products can negatively affect your neuromodulator results.
Neuromodulator Procedure and Recovery
Neuromodulator procedures are typically quick and relatively pain-free, with patients reporting only minimal discomfort. Injectable neuromodulator procedures may take from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the treatment areas.
With minimal downtime, many patients can resume most normal activities following a neuromodulator treatment. Patients may experience redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site; however, these effects resolve in a few hours to a few days.
It is important to thoroughly follow our MedSpa experts’ instructions after your neuromodulator treatment, including avoiding:
- Lying supine for at least 4 hours
- Massaging or touching the treated area for 6 to 12 hours
- Heat exposure, such as hot showers, saunas, or tanning beds, to the treated area for 24 hours
- Strenuous activities, like exercise, for 24 hours
- Alcohol consumption for 24 hours to avoid bruising
