Neuromodulators work to temporarily relax specific muscles of the face which create wrinkles. Neuromodulators will improve the appearance of wrinkles. Treatment areas include forehead, 11 lines, crows feet, bunny lines, frown lines, etc. Neuromodulators can also be used therapeutically for TMJ, and Excessive Sweating.
Neuromodulators are a class of Health Canada approved drugs commonly referred to by their trade names which include Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Nucieva and Letybo. Neuromodulators work to temporarily relax specific muscles of the face which create wrinkles. When we relax these muscles, they no longer form a line which can become etched into your skin over time with repetitive expression.
At Vivid Cosmetic Clinic we most commonly use Dysport, and Nucieva products. Results vary by individual and typically last between 3-4 months, which is when maintenance appointments should be booked.
