BOTOX® & Neuromodulators

Showing expressions of joy or sadness on our faces is a natural part of life, but sometimes frequent facial expressions can lead to expression lines, also called dynamic wrinkles. As we age, these dynamic wrinkles settle deeper into our skin, creating a tired or grumpy appearance. We can smooth these lines and restore a more youthful look with neuromodulators like Dysport®, XEOMIN®, Jeuveau®, DAXXIFY®, and of course, BOTOX. People from Toledo, Ohio, and surrounding areas like Sylvania, Perrysburg, and Sandusky trust us for neuromodulator injections that produce natural-looking results.

What Are BOTOX, Dysport, XEOMIN, Jeuveau, and DAXXIFY?

All of these are botulinum toxin products called neuromodulators that are commonly used to smooth frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and other dynamic wrinkles. They are extremely popular due to their effectiveness, price point, and simplicity.

How Do Neuromodulators Work?

BOTOX and other neuromodulators work by targeting the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. The active ingredient in these treatments prevents the nerves from sending signals to these muscles making the lines or wrinkles less noticeable.

What Areas Do BOTOX and Other Neuromodulators Treat?

We use neuromodulator injections to improve the following areas:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows
  • Lines around the lips
  • Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
  • Neck bands
  • Chin wrinkles

BOTOX also improves non-cosmetic concerns such as excessive sweating, migraine relief, and teeth grinding. You can combine your neuromodulator treatment with dermal fillers to add natural-looking volume and smooth creases like nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

What To Expect During Your BOTOX Treatment

Your injector will ask you to flex the muscles in the treatment area in order to mark the precise location of the injections. We use a short, fine needle and typically start by injecting a small amount of BOTOX or another neuromodulator of your choice so your results look soft and natural.

Your session should last around 15 minutes, depending on the areas treated. Depending on the neuromodulator and the person, you may able to see results as soon as 24 to 48 hours, but it’s more commonly 7 to 14 days for full results.

How Long Will My BOTOX Results Last?

Most neuromodulator results typically last around 3 to 4 months. However, DAXXIFY results may last about 6 months or more. It’s a good idea to schedule a maintenance treatment before the effects of your initial treatment wear off. Your injector will advise you on the best neuromodulator option based on your aesthetic goals.
