According to the American Academy of Facial and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery (AAFRPS),
injectable neuromodulators are the number one cosmetic procedure for both women and men. Adults of all ages use neuromodulators to erase:
Neuromodulators are so popular, in fact, that Rachel Spieldoch, MD, FACOG, and our aesthetics team at McDowell Mountain Gynecology in Scottsdale, Arizona,
offer a full menu of Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA)-approved neuromodulators. Depending on your needs and preferences, you can choose from:
Neuromodulators can be used alone or in combination with other therapies, including dermal fillers and MORPHEUS8 RF resurfacing microneedling. Here are just a few reasons why neuromodulators are the gold-standard in beauty and anti-aging treatments.
Two of the first areas to show the signs of facial aging are the forehead and the sides of the eyes. One reason is because the skin tends to be quite thin in those areas, and isn’t supported underneath by a lot of fat.
The other reason is that forehead and eye wrinkles are the result of many, many years of making the same expressions over and over. Unlike static wrinkles, which only occur because of skin degradation from sun damage and aging, dynamic wrinkles can start to appear even in your early 20s.
Neuromodulators use a purified form of various botulinum toxins to block the messages the brain sends to dynamic muscles in your forehead and around your eyes. So, instead of pressing your brows into an extreme frown that creates 11 lines, those dyamic muscles move just enough to show concentration or annoyance.
Similarly, if you have crow’s feet from years or decades of squinting or smiling, neuromodulators stop your dynamic muscles from reinforcing them. Without the stress of constant dynamic muscle pressure, your skin smooths out, erasing those pesky expression lines.
After your modulators take effect, your face looks less stressed and more relaxed. Your skin is smooth and silky, just like it used to be.
If you opt for surgical facial corrections, you could be facing weeks of recovery and months before you see your final results. In contrast, you can get neuromodulator injections during your lunch break.
While you may have a little soreness, redness, or swelling around the injection sites for a few hours to a couple of days, you can go back to normal activities directly after your treatment. You erase years from your face without erasing hours or weeks from your schedule.
In expert hands, neuromodulators tame your most extreme expressions so that you won’t create wrinkles. But you’re still able to move your face beautifully and naturally and to show every emotion that you feel.
To get optimal results, it’s important to work with an expert injector. We know exactly where to place your injections and how many units you should receive to alleviate your wrinkles but allow natural expressions.
If you want the most bang for your buck, regular neuromodulator injections prevent the years from etching themselves onto your face. Literally.
When compared with a facelift — which can cost $8,000 or more — it’s easy to see why so many women and men turn to neuromodulators instead. Each treatment of Botox treatment costs just $150-$600 and can last for many months.
Of course, many women and men who’ve had face lifts or brow lifts also opt for Botox. Facelifts only treat the lower face, which means you could still have forehead and eye wrinkles that need treatment. Brow lifts smooth the forehead, but Botox extends those good effects.
