Are Neuromodulators Safe?

Yes, as long as you go to a licensed and experienced certified injector. We have all heard horror stories about Botox gone wrong, it is essential that the person injecting you is certified and experienced.

Do the Injections Hurt?

Most people will feel a tiny pinch. If you are sensitive we can use some ice to numb the area or apply numbing cream before beginning. You may have some minor irritation afterwards.

What Does It Do?

Neuromodulators relax muscles to smooth out lines and wrinkles. When injected, they temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet, frown lines, and lines between the eyebrows.

How Much Downtime Is Needed After a Botox Cosmetic Procedure?

There is virtually no downtime after injections. You can have it done during your lunch hour and go back to work immediately. The only exceptions are that you should not exercise or lie down for several hours after having Botox.  In both cases these activities can activate the muscles and cause Botox to move to nearby muscles.

How Long Does Last?

Typically the effects will last 3 to 4 months. You won’t see the effects immediately and it normally takes a few weeks to see the final result. After 4 months, additional injections will be needed to maintain the effects. If you are planning a special event, be sure to allow enough time to see the full effects.

When should I start getting injections?

There is no set age to begin using neuromodulators. It all depends on genetics, how much sun exposure you have had in your life, and your skincare regimen.  These things are primary determinants of when lines will begin to appear on your face. When you are young, lines may only show up when you move your face, like smiling. As you age, these lines can become permanent, but fortunately, neuromodulators help to prevent them from becoming established.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Neuromodulators?

Anyone with moderate to severe wrinkles and lines in the forehead, and crows feet is a good candidate. In addition, you should also be generally healthy to limit any potential complications after receiving the injections. If you have lines and wrinkles while being expressionless, you are most likely a good candidate. We are able to give you recommendations on how neuromodulators may be best suited for you.
