How can I get wrinkle relief?
The most popular nonsurgical aesthetic treatment continues to be wrinkle relief with Botox. As with the other main neuromodulators — Dysport and Xeomin — Botox is made with a minute, highly purified type of botulinum toxin A. You can use the neuromodulators to erase:
- Crow’s feet around your eyes
- Frown lines between your brows
- Horizontal lines on your forehead
- Bunny lines at the top of your nose
Wrinkle-relief treatments take only a few minutes and can last up to four months. All of the neuromodulators available at Sanctuary Medical Center are FDA approved.
How do neuromodulators work?
When dynamic muscles contract as you raise your brows, frown, or squint, they fold and press your skin, creating wrinkles. The neuromodulators block signals to the nerves that tell them to contract. If they can’t contract fully, your skin smooths out again, wrinkle-free.
What are the advantages of Botox?
Botox is the best known, most popular neuromodulator, and has a more than 30-year safety profile in cosmetic dermatology. Most women and men notice Botox’s effects within 3-4 days, but it may take up to two weeks to fully smooth out your wrinkles.
What are the advantages of Dysport?
Dysport can work as quickly as one day. Dysport also spreads farther from the injection site than Botox, which means you need fewer injections to get the same effects. Dysport lasts from four months to one year.
What are the advantages of Xeomin?
Xeomin contains only purified neurotoxin and saline, so it may be your best choice if you have sensitive skin. Xeomin takes about four days to work. Some women and men say that it has softer-looking and -feeling results than Botox.
Does wrinkle relief make my face look frozen?
The experts at Sanctuary Medical Center are highly skilled injectors who know just where to place the neuromodulators and how much to administer for a natural look. They relax your muscles enough to stop you from making extreme expressions, but not enough to prevent you from making attractive, natural expressions.
Can I use wrinkle relief with other therapies?
All of the neuromodulators pair well with other rejuvenating treatments. Your aesthetician may recommend combining them with dermal fillers from the Juvéderm collection or laser treatments.
