What are Neuromodulators and how do they work?
Neuromodulators, such as Xeomin, Dysport, and Botox®, are used to reduce or even eliminate the lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes, by relaxing the muscles responsible for the development of lines and/or wrinkles.
Who is a good candidate for a Neuromodulator treatment?
The best candidates for a Neuromodulator or Botox treatment are individuals who have fine lines or wrinkles that they would like to diminish the appearance of. At our clinic we require patients to be physically healthy, and whom have no history of neuromuscular diseases. Botox or Dysport must only be done on those who are not pregnant or nursing, and who are at least 18 years old.
What results can be expected and how soon after the treatment will I see results and can I return to my regular activities?
At the Derma Lounge we recommend to avoid rubbing, massaging, or applying any pressure to the treated area for at least 6 hours after the treatment as these gestures can cause the Neuromodulator
Avoid rubbing, massaging, or applying any pressure to the treated area. These actions can cause Botox Cosmetic to spread to other areas of the body. This can negatively affect your results. When being injected between the brows, do not lie down or bend over for three to four hour. Doing so may cause the Botox to slip under the orbital rim. This could possibly cause an eyelid droop.
There is little to no downtime expected after the treatment. You should be able to resume normal activities immediately in most cases.
It’s important to understand possible improvements and have realistic expectations. Noticeable results can be expected within 1-2 days post-treatment. The full effect of Botox Cosmetic typically lasts up to four months. It can also help prevent the return of fine lines through relaxing the muscles.
