Why Should I Consider Neuromodulators?
The aging process impacts not only our skin but also underlying facial structures. While collagen depletion and environmental factors can contribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles, repeated facial muscle contractions cause permanent etching in the skin that manifests as forehead lines, crow’s feet, and “angry”-appearing furrows between the brows. Dynamic wrinkles caused by expressive facial muscles can be softened with neuromodulators, and their progression can be delayed with consistent treatments.
What are Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators are injectable treatments derived from the botulinum toxin type A, which function to weaken the action of a particular muscle, decreasing their pull on the overlying skin and preventing the permanent etching of deep-set wrinkles in the skin. Neuromodulators are sometimes used to treat spasms from neurological disorders, migraines, sweating, muscle spasticity, voice problems, and other medical conditions. However, they are more widely used as facial wrinkle treatments.
How Do Neurotoxins Work?
Neuromodulators temporarily reduce signals from the nerves to the muscles that lead to facial expression. After injecting a precise amount of toxin into the skin, facial muscles will relax, softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin’s surface. The treatment is most effective when addressing lines and wrinkles caused by frowning, squinting, smiling, and other expressions. Muscle movement returns gradually after several months as the body naturally metabolizes the treatment. Neuromodulators often provide the best results when patients schedule routine maintenance treatments.
What are the Types of Neuromodulators?
There are a variety of neuromodulator brands, each with unique qualities. The most popular neuromodulators include:
