Neuromodulators: Treating Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Neuromodulators are the most widely used injectable treatment. They work by blocking chemical signals from nerves that tell muscles to contract. Neuromodulators are most commonly used to temporarily relax facial muscles. As a result, you are able to diminish the look of deep and soft expression lines.
Dynamic and Static Wrinkles:
Dynamic wrinkles are formed by repetitive facial movements like smiling, frowning, and squinting your eyes. The skin in these areas will begin to stretch from a similar constant movement. Collagen and elastin have a large presence in the skin when are young. But as we age these numbers begin to slowly decrease and our skin will not bounce back to its original state as easily as it used to. Neuromodulators are certainly an excellent option for treating dynamic lines.
Static wrinkles are the lines that almost everyone get. For example, laugh lines, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. These lines are a result of aging and the loss of collagen, meaning static lines are formed regardless of facial movements. Static lines can be reduced through the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers help to plumpen the skin and restore volume that has been lost over time.
Neuromodulators At Papillon Medical:
At Papillon Medical, we offer injectable treatments to reduce and improve the signs of aging. The early signs of aging, both intrinsic and extrinsic, become more apparent in our skin with each passing year. Our bodies produce less of the key components that keep our skin looking firm and youthful as we age.
Fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead, lower face, or the delicate skin around your eyes may start to become more noticeable. Our physicians are known for their gentle touch, providing beautiful, natural results. Most importantly, all of our patients are unique, meaning each treatment is created specifically to meet their needs.
Neuromodulators & Medical Conditions:
Neuromodulators can also be used to treat medical conditions. Common indications for injectable therapy include hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraines, and bruxism/TMJ disorders (teeth grinding, clenching, etc.). These options are fast and effective and have little or no downtime.
We use two types of neuromodulators for approved and off label treatments within our clinics- Botox and Dysport. Our highly-skilled injectors understand that every patient comes through our doors with unique concerns. Therefore, we offer complimentary consultations to determine which product will deliver the best results for you!
