At our Radiant Skin Aesthetic & Beauty Studio locations in Zionsville and Danville, IN, we offer several different neuromodulators that temporarily eliminate expression lines. They provide both men and women the ability to reverse the aging process temporarily and enjoy smoother skin for several months at a time.
Neuromodulators are anti-aging injectables that smooth lines and wrinkles on the upper half of the face. They have cosmetic and medical uses and provide a safe solution for patients to meet their unique treatment goals. We offer the most popular and effective neuromodulators here at our offices, and we can design a treatment plan using one or more to address your areas of concern.
Almost everyone has heard of Botox, regardless of whether they have undergone treatment with this injectable before. Botox is the oldest and most well-known cosmetic injectable and has been smoothing lines and wrinkles on the upper half of the face for over 20 years. It can treat three specific areas of the face: the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the outer corners of the eyes.
Once you receive injections, you will see the best results after seven days. For some, results appear sooner, and once they do, they last anywhere from three to four months. Regular follow-up treatments will ensure that you don’t have to live with expression lines but can maintain a wrinkle-free appearance long-term.
Treating Medical Concerns
We can use Botox for more than just cosmetic concerns; we can use it to treat medical conditions, including TMJ and hyperhidrosis. By injecting Botox into specific muscles around the jawline, we can temporarily relax the muscles that often contribute to the pain that results from this condition. We can also use Botox to alleviate the symptoms of hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis is an embarrassing condition that affects many men and women. It causes excess sweat from the underarm area even when a person is not active or working out. Hyperhidrosis can cause self-esteem issues and embarrassment, but we can help resolve this condition with Botox. Injections into specific areas of the underarms will temporarily suppress the sweat glands to reduce sweating.
Dysport is a popular cosmetic injectable that qualifies as a neuromodulator. It’s designed to treat frown lines between the eyebrows. Injections into different muscles above and between the eyebrows will temporarily relax those muscles to smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Once injected with Dysport, you can expect results within the first three to four days, but the best results will be evident a week post-treatment and typically last three to four months.
Xeomin is a highly purified neuromodulator that is different from other similar treatment options because it doesn’t have any additional proteins in its formula. It can smooth frown lines without impacting the appearance or mobility of other areas of the face. Once injected with Xeomin, you can expect to see an improvement in the appearance of your frown lines within the first three days of treatment, and your results can last three to six months.
Jeuveau is another neuromodulator designed to treat frown lines. It will temporarily block the nerve signals from communicating with the facial muscles, allowing the skin to relax. This temporarily improves the appearance of frown lines. Some patients see results as quickly as two days post-treatment, and results may last five months.
Determining the Best Treatment Options
These neuromodulators provide a safe and effective solution to treating lines and wrinkles and enjoying long-term results. However, some options may be better for certain patients than others. If you’re unsure which injectable is right for you, we will determine the best treatment option. An initial consultation is the perfect way to learn more about these treatments and allows us to evaluate your areas of concern in person.
The Importance of a Pre-Treatment Consultation
During this consultation, we will ask you about your medical history, if you have any allergies to the ingredients in these injectables, and if you’ve ever had any experience with them in the past. It’s important that patients are not currently pregnant or nursing at the time of treatment and don’t have an infection in the planned treatment area.
Once we confirm that one or more of these injectables is right for you, we will design a treatment plan with the right number of units and products to target your areas of concern. We will give you instructions about preparing for the treatment process and schedule your appointment.
What To Expect From the Treatment Process
When you arrive at your appointment, you can expect the entire treatment to take less than 30 minutes from start to finish. Once your treatment is over, you can resume your typical daily activities. Still, you may be asked to avoid certain environments, activities, and medications or supplements to promote the best results. We will provide a complete list of aftercare instructions so that you know how to care for the treatment sites to ensure the best post-treatment results.
Say Goodbye to Lines and Wrinkles
Thanks to these incredibly effective neuromodulators, your forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines are now completely optional. You don’t have to live with lines and wrinkles, and you don’t have to let them affect your confidence. We will design a unique treatment plan that will improve your appearance and help you look younger, well-rested, and more confident.
