What is “Botox” vs “Neuromodulator”?
“Botox” is commonly used interchangeably with “neuromodulator”. Botox, however, is the actual brand name of a particular product. There are several neuromodulators on the market including Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau. They are all essentially purified protein derived from a bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum, a naturally occuring substance, that is then manufactured into a Botulinum Toxin A product.
How are Neuromodulators used to help me look rejuvenated?
When administered in small doses and injected into targeted muscles, they work to relax facial muscles that cause wrinkles. By minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles the result is a complexion that appears more smooth and youthful.
Why choose brand name Botox Cosmetic?
- Botox is the first FDA approved neuromodulator indicated to temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
- It is an established brand that produces predictable subtle results.
- Botox cosmetic is backed by more than 16 years of published clinical studies
- It uses a unique manufacturing process that is measured in units that cannot be compared to any other product.
- Botox offers The Brilliant Distinctions program which supports its patients by offering discounts on future treatments.
What areas can Botox Treat?
Botox Cosmetic, like all neuromodulators, is most commonly used to relieve forehead wrinkles, glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows), and crow’s feet. Neuromodulator (Botox) is FDA approved to relieve wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. It is also commonly used “off-label” (not officially FDA approved) to treat wrinkles on the nose (bunny lines), chin dimpling, and wrinkles that form around the lips. Neuromodulators can also have an added effect of easing migraines and jaw tension.
How Long Does Botox Last?
- Onset is gradual with facial lines reducing markedly over a two week period.
- Typically treatments last 3-4 months. Duration depends on dosage and your unique metabolism.
- Botox diminishes gradually over time, so there is not a drastic change in your appearance.
- Retreatment is necessary to maintain a desired correction.
