BOTOX COSMETIC® & Neuromodulators: smooth wrinkles without downtime
Slowing down the aging process without changing your look.
With neuromodulator treatments (such as BOTOX COSMETIC®, Xeomin and Dysport) at our Calgary clinic, you can age the way you want to.
How BOTOX COSMETIC® Works
There are many factors that can cause facial lines. Repeated muscle contractions from squinting, frowning, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines.
A neuromodulator treatment likeBOTOX® Cosmetic or Xeomin utilizes tiny needles to relax targeted muscles around the treatment area; transmission of motor signals from the nerves are temporarily stopped. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle contraction. In the absence of signals from the nerves, the muscles aren’t able to contract, leading to a softening of the wrinkles.
What To Expect
Prior to treatment our expertly trained injectors will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine which areas need to be treated. Some patients who have received neuromodulator treatment like BOTOX® Cosmetic or Xeomin indicate that the injections feel like a pinch.
Following treatment, patients experience little more than pinpoint redness around treatment sites, which can be easily concealed with a complimentary mineral makeup touchup. Results take effect, subtly and gradually, between three and 14 days of treatment. There is minimal downtime with neuromodulator treatment so that you can return to you daily activities after you leave our office.
Neuromodulator treatments are Health Canada approved for frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and have given millions of people around the world the youthful look they wanted. It is also widely used to treat other facial wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles, caused by repeated muscle contractions. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkles.
When expertly provided, neuromodulator treatments help you look fabulous for your age and soften lines that might make you look tired, angry or stressed. It’s an easy way to get that well-rested, energized glow so how you look on the outside matches how you feel on the inside.
