TOX-IT

(Neuromodulator, Neurotoxin, Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Jeuveau, Anti-Wrinkle Injections)

SMOOTH, REFRESH and REFINE with a neuromodulator treatment. A lite “sprinkler” of neuromodulator aka botox in the face and neck helps improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Neurotoxins are injectable compounds that relax muscles and smooth out lines and wrinkles. There are several brands of neuromodulators; one of the most well-known is BOTOX. Dysport, like Botox, helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles that appear over time. All brands contain a small amount of the active ingredient, which temporarily halts the communication muscles and nerves in the areas treated.

What is a neuromodulator, aka Botox?

Botulinum toxin A aka Botox is a medication that relaxes the muscles and nerves involved in facial expression and sweat production. This prevents wrinkles that are caused by muscular contraction and also helps to smooth existing creases or wrinkles. The Forehead, the frown lines between our brows, and crow feet around the eyes are the Popular areas to be treated. Botox can also be used to lift the brows, reduce a gummy smile, slim the lower face by injecting the masseters, define the jawline, and treat excessive sweating and TMJ.

Are there differences between various types of neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau)?

All neuromodulators are composed of botulinum toxin A. Each type of neuromodulator has a different protein coating (except for Xeomin, which does not have a protein coating). Let’s be honest, if you’re not a medical professional or some scientist, that doesn’t mean a thing, Am I right? This protein coating leads to very slight differences in the characteristics of the neuromodulators. We can compare the differences between neuromodulators to the differences between brands of tissues (i.e., Puffs, Kleenex, etc.) or types of soda (i.e., Coke, Dr. Pepper, Mr. Pibb, etc.). They all do the same thing, but you might have a preference for one or another.

Who is a candidate for neuromodulators such as Botox?

  • Anyone that would like to prevent wrinkles or smooth existing wrinkles caused by muscular contraction.
  • Anyone interested in anti-aging and skin quality. (Wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows around the eyes, are the most popular areas to reduce wrinkles.)
  • Neurotoxins can also be used to lift the brows, reduce a gummy smile, slim the lower face, define the jawline, and treat excessive sweating or TMJ.

Is there any pre-care before a Botox treatment?

We highly recommend not working out on the day of. We also recommend not skipping a meal before injections.

What can be expected during treatment?

Treatment typically takes 15-30 minutes and consists of multiple injections with a small needle. Minor bruising is possible.

What is the discomfort/pain associated with Botox treatments?

Discomfort and pain during treatment are minimal. Some describe the injections as feeling like a small pinch. A slight headache and mild tingling and itching can occur. Flu-like symptoms can also occur but are more uncommon. These symptoms typically resolve very quickly. Tylenol can be used as needed for pain.

What is the downtime after a Botox procedure?

 At Skin Deep Cosmetics & Aesthetics, we define downtime as being unable to work or go out in public. Downtime after a neuromodulator treatment will be unique to every patient. Typically neuromodulator treatment has no downtime. Redness, swelling, and bruising can occur. Redness and swelling will typically resolve within an hour. Bruising is usually minimal and will resolve in 1-2 weeks. Arnica can be taken by mouth to help bruising resolve more quickly. 

What are the aftercare instructions after a Botox treatment? 

  • Remain in an upright position for 4 hours after a Botox treatment.
  • Refrain from using makeup or other facial products or touching your face for 4-6 hours after treatment.  
  • Avoid wearing hats and rubbing/massaging the treated area for 24 hours after treatment. 
  • Avoid excess alcohol consumption, smoking, exercise, UV light, and heat (saunas, steam, tanning beds, hot showers, etc.) for 24 hours after treatment. 

When will I see results from a Botox neuromodulator session? 

The initial effects from the neuromodulator, Botox can be seen 3-10 days after treatment. Peak results occur at 14 days. It is not uncommon to feel the slight heaviness of the Forehead and brows for 2-3 weeks after treatment. Results will continue to improve for four weeks or more.

How long will results for Botox neuromodulator treatments last? 

Results of a Botox treatment should last 3-4 months on average. We like to educate and make it clear that DOSE = DURATION. So what does that mean? If you prefer a more natural appearance that will entail a lighter dose, you might not get an entire 3-4 month duration.
