What Are Neuromodulators?

Neuromodulators are wrinkle-relaxing injections of botulinum toxin such as Botox®  or Xeomin® used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, around the eyes, and along the bridge of the nose. Only a tiny amount of the neuromodulator needs to be injected into the muscle for effect, which causes it to relax, smoothing the overlying skin. If you are interested in learning more about how neuromodulators can diminish your lines and wrinkles, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our expert dermatology providers at your earliest convenience.

What are the Benefits of Neuromodulators?

There are many benefits to receiving neuromodulator treatments with Botox® and Xeomin® a by the expert medical professionals at Scottsdale Skin Boutique & Dermatology, including:

  • Smoothes away lines and wrinkles along the forehead
  • Reduces frown lines between the brows (the “11s”)
  • Improves crow's feet around the eyes
  • Reduces upper nose wrinkles (bunny/wolf lines)
  • Lifts the upper lip to give illusion of fullness (“lip flip”)
  • Reduces mouth frowning and chin dimpling
  • Slims the face by reducing prominence of the jaw muscle
  • Smoothes muscle bands (vertical lines) on the neck
  • Minimally invasive aesthetic procedure
  • Results last three to four months
  • No downtime or recovery period

What Can I Expect During My Neuromodulator Treatment?

Tiny amounts of Botox® and Xeomin® are carefully and strategically injected into specific facial muscles, causing a local relaxation. The lines and wrinkles gradually smooth and new creases are prevented from forming. Other facial muscles not targeted, such as those that allow for smiling and laughing maintain complete function and are not affected, so natural expressions that convey warmth and friendliness remain.

What Can I Expect After my Neuromodulator Treatment?

Because neuromodulators (Botox® and Xeomin®) are a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment, there is no downtime or recovery period expected. Most patients report returning back to their normal daily activities including work immediately following their neuromodulator treatments. Mild redness, swelling, and bruising around the injection sites is normal and generally subsides on its own within a day or two of treatment. The results of your neuromodulator treatment usually take between three to seven days to become visible, and typically last between three and four months. The expert dermatology providers at Scottsdale Skin Boutique & Dermatology recommend regular quarterly treatments to maintain your desired results.
