Neuromodulators: Neuromodulators (such as Botox, Dysport, Newtox, and Xeomin) are prescription medications injected into facial muscles to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. There are four brands of neuromodulators and your nurse injector will help you decide which one is best for you at your appointment. They are all essentially the same thing and will give you the same result…just different brands. Facial anatomy varies slightly per person and the strength of your muscles must be assessed in person. So please do not ask for specific pricing prior to your consultation. Clients above 21 years of age are candidates for neuromodulators. While it does correct wrinkles, it is also a preventative treatment. Each time you are treated, your muscles atrophy and it helps to prevent the onset of deeper wrinkles setting in.
Process: five minutes to inject
Pain: the needles are so small most clients report they dont even feel the injections.
Duration: results take two weeks to improve fine lines and wrinkles. It’s important to be conservative while injecting, so some clients may need to come back in two weeks for a touch up if your muscles are stronger and your wrinkles are more severe. Results will last 3-4 months.
Masseter injections: clients who suffer from TMJ or grind their teeth can benefit significantly from injections into the masseter muscle. This helps to decrease pain and relieve the need to grind your teeth. Added bonus: it helps slim your face! 30-40 units.
Lip Flip: a lip flip is neurotoxin such as Botox injected above the upper lip. This causes your upper lip to “flip” upwards and show more volume. Results last 6-8 weeks. This is not significant volume. If you’d like volume or correction due to asymmetries then lip filler is needed.
