WHAT IS A NEUROMODULATOR?
As we age, fine lines or wrinkles tend to become more visible on the forehead and around the eyes. Known as dynamic lines, these skin concerns develop from repetitive facial movements, such as frowning, squinting, and smiling, and can make us look older, tired, and even angry. Our med spa team may be able to temporarily diminish the appearance of Crow’s feet, frown lines, and horizontal forehead creases for a more youthful, vibrant appearance with this treatment. Horizon Medical Center is proud to offer cosmetic injections as a nonsurgical cosmetic option to help women and men attain a smoother, refreshed result. Contact our Schaumburg, IL practice today to learn more about the benefits of this service!
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR NEUROMODULATORS?
Anyone who would like to improve the appearance of their facial lines and wrinkles without undergoing plastic surgery is a candidate for neuromodulation treatment. This procedure is most commonly used in the upper face and around the eyes, though it can be utilized in other areas to help reduce signs of aging. Patients at Horizon Medical Center must attend an assessment before we determine if they are a good fit for this service. We can only treat the areas of the face which are free from skin conditions or infections. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not receive cosmetic injections at this time.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A neuromodulator derived from purified type A botulinum toxin, this treatment works to temporarily relax the muscles that assist with facial contractions, allowing the overlying skin to become smoother over time. This is often a great option for adults who want to relax Crow’s feet around the eyes, forehead wrinkles, or frown lines between the brows (known as glabellar lines or “elevens”), and younger men and women who wish to ward off the signs of aging. Administered by one of our skilled physicians, these treatments only take around 5 – 10 minutes to perform and can provide up to four months of natural-looking, smoother skin. During your visit to our Schaumburg, IL office, we can help you determine the number of treatments needed to reach and maintain your aesthetic goals.
How many injections/units will I need?
The number of injections given will vary based on individual needs and the extent of your lines. Our team will suggest the correct quantity of injections based on your desired treatment outcomes and whether you wish to treat the brow area, forehead, or Crow’s feet. To maintain your cosmetic outcomes, we may suggest receiving every 3 – 4 months at Horizon Medical Center.
Can I have BOTOX with additional cosmetic treatments?
BOTOX generally pairs well with other aesthetic options for patients who wish to reduce aging concerns. If you notice more pronounced and severe facial wrinkles and lines, our team could suggest adding a filler for maximum outcomes. To further enhance your younger-looking, radiant appearance, we could provide other complementary treatments, like microneedling with PRP or facials.
Are there comparable cosmetic injections?
BOTOX is a certain type of wrinkle reducer that competes within a multitude of other comparable brands, including Jeuveau®, XEOMIN®, and Dysport®. All of these wrinkle relaxer options contain botulinum toxin type A; however, each is formulated a little differently to target specific problems.
Is there a difference between fillers and wrinkle relaxers?
While wrinkle reducers are provided to diminish facial lines by temporarily preventing your muscle contractions, fillers are a different collection of cosmetic formulations that improve facial volume. Dermal fillers are designed to plump sunken features and reduce static wrinkles. We can discuss whether you could benefit from a filler (like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) to further enhance your neuromodulator results.
