Neuromodulators (Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin® etc.) are injectable medications that block nerve signals allowing targeted muscles in the face to relax. As a result, wrinkles in these areas just fade away!
Neuromodulators have thus become an indispensable part of maintaining a more youthful appearance. This therapy is most commonly utilized in the upper face to relax forehead wrinkles. The procedure is very well tolerated and can be completed in just a few minutes. The effects commonly last for three or more months.
After treatment of the forehead and brow regions, patients often comment that they appear less angry and more refreshed. An added benefit of neuromodulator therapy can also include fewer tension and migraine headaches.
Another subtle, but desirable effect with neuromodulator treatment of the forehead is the elegant lateral lift given to the brow.
Don't forget about your eyes! Just a light touch of neuromodulator around the eyes can reduce or even eliminate those "crow's feet" wrinkles. This helps to prevent them from becoming etched in place over time.
Finally, another helpful treatment effect of neuromodulators is th at they can help minimze the appearance of "gummy smile". This condition is defined as the appearance of more than 3 or 4 mm of gum line above the teeth on smiling. The cause is overactive muscles in the upper lip.
