Neuromodulators are temporary muscle relaxers that can last 3 to 4 months (or more). Botox® and Dysport® are types of Botulinum Toxin type A, they are Health Canada Approved injectable medications.
Cosmetically, neuromodulators can freshen your look by softening fine lines on the face that are caused by commonly used facial expressions. These injectables are made from highly purified, naturally occurring proteins. They are able to relax the targeted muscles and gradually smoothen wrinkles as the muscles relax.
There are many uses for neuromodulators, our clients most commonly use these injections to treat:
- Frown lines (aka "11's")
- Forehead Wrinkles
- Bunny Lines (sides of the upper nose)
- Crow's Feet (around the eyes)
- Smoker's Lines (above the lips)
- "Lip flips", to create the appearance of fuller lips without the need for dermal fillers
