While you may worry about the onset of facial lines that will appear as time passes, you should know that scientists have developed non-invasive injectables known as Neuromodulators that help to keep you looking as young as you feel. Treatments can hide and even retard the effects of aging on one’s appearance.

Administered by a cosmetic surgery professional, injections of botulinum toxin, commercially known as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, or Jeuveau, will reduce or even eliminate fine facial lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead creases. These substances can also slow the increasing intensity of those lines as you age. 

How Do Neuromodulators Work?

Over time, repetitive muscle action from common facial expressions will cause lines and wrinkles to appear. Injecting Botulinum toxin (or Botox), a purified wrinkle-relaxing solution, blocks the nerve signals to the muscles nearest the injection. When this occurs, the muscles will not contract, and the unwanted facial lines and wrinkles will begin to disappear.

Neurotoxin treatments work best on “dynamic” lines that result from particular facial expressions. More permanent or “static” lines are better treated with fillers or plastic surgery procedures, completely different medical approaches.

Botox or neuromodulator treatments are effective for glabellar lines or furrows between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, bunny lines on the nose, TMJ (jaw) disorders, masseter hypertrophy bruxism, neck bands, and even excessive sweating.

Also, “micro-botox” treatments, injections of a smaller dose of neurotoxin, will diminish less prominent fine lines, texture issues, large pores, and rosacea.

Consultation with a plastic surgery specialist at Napa Solano Plastic Surgery will help you determine which procedure is best. Factors like metabolism and the amount of neuromodulation and muscle relaxation you may need will help determine the amount of product to be injected.

When to Consider a Neuromodulator Discussion and Treatment

Subjects should not wait until those facial lines and creases become severe before considering treatments. Many people forestall the development of severe lines and wrinkles by undergoing Botox treatments before those lines become apparent. Waiting longer, after the creases are more notably etched into the skin, makes erasing them more difficult.
