What Are Neuromodulators, And How Do They Work?
Neuromodulators, such as Botox and Dysport, chemically alter nerve activity to relax targeted muscles. As a cosmetic treatment, these injectable solutions temporarily and partially paralyze muscles that contribute to dynamic wrinkles or wrinkles that appear as a result of repetitive facial movements.
Frown lines, smile lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet are common examples of dynamic wrinkles. Upon neuromodulator injection, these solutions inhibit the contraction of muscles that produce facial movements that cause wrinkles. The relaxation of these muscles allows fine lines and wrinkles to fade and prevents the development of new lines. Botox and Dysport are effective as a treatment for existing wrinkles and as a preventative treatment against signs of aging.
Neuromodulator Beauty Benefits
Smooth and prevent wrinkles
Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport smooth and prevent wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle contractions. Treatment takes only a few minutes and produces results that last for months, offering an excellent return on your time and financial investments. Furthermore, there is no downtime following neuromodulator injections, so your treatment will not interrupt your busy schedule.
You can even schedule your treatment over your lunch break and return to work immediately after your appointment. In addition to these shared benefits, Botox and Dysport offer their own advantages, which may make one of these neuromodulators more suitable than its counterpart for specific concerns.
Botox And Dysport Procedure
Neuromodulator injections take only minutes to perform
Once the target area is sufficiently numb, the injection process will begin. The number of injections you will need to achieve your desired results will depend on the treatment area and the product used. You will feel a pinch upon each injection, though this sensation is very tolerable for most patients. The entire process typically takes 15 to 30 minutes. As soon as your injections are complete, you will be free to return to your day.
Botox And Dysport Recovery
While this measure may seem counterintuitive, contracting the targeted muscles draws the solution to the most active areas, expediting your results and increasing the effectiveness of your treatment. For example, patients who receive either Botox or Dysport for frown lines can repeatedly raise their brown and frown to guide the product where it’s most needed. You can perform this movement in three sets of 40 repetitions, spaced 10 minutes apart for the best results. For four hours after your treatment, you should avoid lying down. For 24-48 hours, you should avoid strenuous exercise, as well as touching, rubbing, or applying pressure to the treated area. These simple measures can prevent infection and product dispersion to other areas.
Botox is the original wrinkle releaser
Botox delivers targeted botulinum toxin to the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, and offering focused treatment. Botox is ideal for treating multiple areas of concern, such as vertical lines around the lips and crow’s feet.
Dysport is an excellent treatment for glabellar lines
Dysport is an excellent treatment for glabellar lines and forehead wrinkles. As Dysport is formulated slightly differently than Botox, it spreads farther beneath the skin and is a great alternative in the event that Botox proves to be less effective. This will depend on your areas of concern and your body’s reaction to Botox.
Dysport And Botox Results & Maintenance
What to expect after your treatment
However, in both cases, facial exercises can dramatically speed up the time for your results to reach their full potential. You can best maintain your results with follow-up treatment and regular skincare. Results from either of these treatments typically last three to four months, though some patients find that they can go up to six months between treatments.
