Neuromodulators

$9 / Unit

Botox ® (onabotulinumtoxinA) and Dysport ® (abobotulinumtoxinA), are both Neuromodulators, a purified protein used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by decreasing muscle movement in a desired area. These products are Health Canada Approved.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Neuromodulator cosmetic treatments use tiny needles to inject this purified protein into targeted muscles to relax them. Transmission of motor signals from the nerves in the muscles reduce and temporarily stop. In this absence, muscles are not able to contract, thus softening the appearance of the face, reducing wrinkles and fine line formation.

Did you know that Botox® can be used for more than wrinkles? When treated correctly, it can actually correct brow asymmetry, minimize fullness above the eyes, turn up the corners of the mouth, and create less of a gummy smile. However, this does involve an in-depth facial analysis to identify your own dominant movements with your anatomical musculature.

Treatments helpful in reducing the appearance of:

  • Crows Feet
  • Glabellar (in between the eyebrows)
  • Frown lines
  • Downward lines around mouth

Treatment takes 15-20 minutes, typically lasting 3-4 months (varied per person)
