What are neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators are neurotoxin treatments that reduce wrinkles and fine lines formed from the aging process and by hyper-functional muscles. Most of these injectables are composed of botulinum, a substance that provides aesthetic benefits when administered in small doses. These treatments are an excellent choice for certain areas of the face, like the forehead, around the mouth, and the eyes.
Which neuromodulators are offered at Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is backed by more than 16 years of published studies. This tried, and true neuromodulator can stop dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines, worry lines, laugh lines, and neck bands. Sessions take 15-30 minutes to perform.
Xeomin® is commonly used for reducing wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, forehead, and nose. Xeomin® injections are perhaps the best alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic, being composed of a similar, but “naked” botulinum toxin compound free of added proteins. This lack of additives means that you are less likely to develop a resistance to Xeomin®.
DAXXIFY® is FDA-approved to smooth moderate to severe lines between the brows. It is the only long-lasting frown line treatment powered by a peptide. The active ingredient in DAXXIFY® is a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A.
Am I a candidate?
Most adults can be candidates for neuromodulators. If you have moderate to severe facial wrinkles and the wrinkles are located in areas that BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin®, and DAXXIFY® can treat, such as around or between the eyes, on the forehead, or around the neck, you likely qualify.
What Results Can I Expect?
Depending on the individual, BOTOX® Cosmetic results can be seen within 5-10 days after treatment; it peaks in 2-4 weeks and will last for 3-6 months.
Results of Xeomin® can be seen in just 2-7 days after your session. Best of all, there’s little, if any, downtime needed after treatments. You can stop by, get your injections, then return to your daily routine immediately. The benefits tend to last an average of 3-4 months but have been reported to last up to six months in some cases.
Results of Daxify can be seen 2-5 days after injection. Depending on the individual can last on average 6 months and up to 9 months.
