Neuromodulators: Botox Treatments
One of the most popular neuromodulators is BOTOX. The injections block nerve activity in the desired muscle groups, allowing them to relax and help the skin appear smooth and youthful. If you are hoping to restore your skin this could be the perfect treatment for you.
BOTOX has been the longest used neuromodulator for years and has just recently seen competition, while they are very similar products, there are small differences that may help you choose one over the other. To compare the products, see our page about Dysport.
For now, BOTOX is believed to have longer lasting results, but this is still being studied. With BOTOX injections, the results will be apparent after about four to seven days. These injections also are more focused, staying within a tighter area of the injection.

How does the Botox treatment work?
This in-office-procedure is quick and easy but provides incomparable results. As a neuromodulator, the treatment that we administer affects groups of neurons to create a specific result. In the case of Botox, the injection will cause the extra skin to tighten, which eliminates any wrinkles that are currently visible. While your skin may feel tight for a little after the procedure, the skin will loosen to a comfortable state in the days following the procedure.
What types of wrinkles can Botox treat?
The Botox procedure can treat a variety of wrinkles including
- Dynamic wrinkles
- Wrinkles caused by movement
- Frown Lines
- Forehead Lines
- Crow’s Feet
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Wrinkles around jaw muscles
What does the procedure look like?
When you come in for your Botox appointment, you will be taken into a treatment room and we will walk you through what we are going to complete. From there, we will ensure that you are comfortable so that you can be at ease while we administer the Botox injections.
