Neuromodulators, also known as neurotoxins or wrinkle relaxers, are anti-aging cosmetic injectables that work on the muscular level to reduce muscle activity and soften expression lines. The active ingredients in these products are slightly different, but all work the same, temporarily blocking nerve impulses to the muscles so that patients can enjoy wrinkle-free skin.
We offer four of the most popular injectable neuromodulators: BOTOX®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Daxxify®. These products can be used to treat the most common expression lines on the upper half of the face, enhance certain facial features, and correct aesthetic imperfections. We design customized treatments for each patient and can address:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Bunny lines
- Lip lines
- DAO (downturned smile)
- Chin dimples
- Drooping brow
- Thin lips
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
Injectable neuromodulators have become a go-to treatment for patients who want to reduce the signs of aging and enjoy long-lasting results. They are safe and FDA-approved to treat multiple expression lines on the upper half of the face. They also make a noticeable difference in the overall appearance and can address different cosmetic concerns. Some other treatment benefits include:
- Injections are virtually painless
- Treatments are quick and only take minutes to complete
- Treatments are combinable
- Results appear quickly and are long-lasting
Slimming the Jawline
Patients who want to achieve a slimmer jawline can undergo treatment with one of our injectable wrinkle relaxers to reduce the size of the masseter muscle to reshape the jawline. The result is a slimmer, contoured jawline promoting a youthful appearance.
The Nefertiti Lift is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment with one of our neuromodulators that can improve the appearance of neck lines. During treatment, we administer BOTOX®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® into the lower part of the face, jaw, and neck to address the platysma band of muscles that run vertically from the bottom of the face to the collarbone. The treatment promotes a tighter neck and jawline. Patients may need multiple sessions for the best results, and individual results may vary.
Excessive sweating is a condition also known as hyperhidrosis that can affect many men and women. However, patients who experience this condition don’t have to simply live with the embarrassment and self-consciousness it can cause. Neurotoxins can be used to target the sweat glands in the axilla to reduce sweating. After initial treatment, results can last up to six months.
The Lip Flip
Neuromodulators can also enhance the lips through a treatment called the lip flip. During the lip flip treatment, we inject one of our wrinkle relaxing products into the upper part of the lip to relax the lip muscle and flip the lip outward. The result is the appearance of fuller lips. Patients can enjoy the effects of the lip flip four to six weeks after initial treatment. Individual results may vary.
Our Treatment Options
BOTOX® is the most popular cosmetic injectable that is FDA-approved to treat expression lines in multiple areas, including frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. It also can treat muscular-related medical conditions to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.
Once patients undergo treatment, results appear within 24 to 48 hours, but patients typically see the most noticeable improvements in their expression lines within three to four days, with the best results visible within 30 days. BOTOX® results last three to six months, and regular treatments will extend results long-term.
Dysport® is another popular cosmetic injectable specifically designed to treat frown lines. We can also use it to help patients reach additional aesthetic goals. After the initial injection, results appear within two to three days of treatment and can last up to five months. Regular follow-up treatments can extend results indefinitely.
Daxxify is a newer neuromodulator product that can be injected into the muscle to soften facial expression lines. Treatment areas include the “11s” (glabella lines), crow’s feet (smile lines), forehead lines, lip lines or smoker lines. Daxxify can also be used to soften lines in the upper nose (“bunny lines”), help with a downturn smile (DAO), smooth skin on the chin with an “orange peel” appearance, and provide brow lift.
Frequently Asked Questions
We take every step to ensure your treatment process is comfortable and enjoyable. Most patients easily tolerate neuromodulator treatments, but if you have any concerns, we can apply topical numbing cream before administering the injections. We administer treatments with a very thin, small needle, and the treatment process is quick and complete within minutes.
When you trust Wise Aesthetics with all of your cosmetic injectable treatments, you can rest assured that you’ll be treated by expert injectors who have an artistic eye, understand facial anatomy, and know exactly how much product to inject to naturally treat your concerns without making you look overdone, plastic, or like a completely different person.
If at any point, you need to temporally discontinue treatments with one or more of our cosmetic injectables, you don’t have to worry about any risk or adverse reactions. For instance, many women temporarily discontinue treatment before, during, and after pregnancy and can safely resume treatment when cleared by their primary care provider. Other patients may temporarily discontinue neuromodulator treatments for different reasons but can resume at any point without risk.
