SKINLIFE’S expertise in Neuromodulators – BOTOX Cosmetic®/Dysport®/Xeomin®

Neuromodulator injections have a quick procedure duration and a nearly non-existent downtime, and are therefore widely understood as an easy and simple anti-aging and contouring treatment. While such advantages prove to be true, as the treatment benefits derive from the tweaking of the intricate system of muscles, a comprehensive knowledge of the anatomy of the body is mandatory for consistently safe and natural results. At SKINLIFE Clinic, wrinkle relaxation and contour slimming via neuromodulators are provided by a highly trained and experienced physician, who also doubles as an educator and a certifying body for other doctors in neuromdulator injections. SKINLIFE also holds the status of being Galderma Canada’s Top Injector Champion in 2016 and 2017. Dr. Choi, being the sole injector of the entire practice, has produced the highest volume of aesthetic injectables portfolio of Restylane® fillers and Dysport® botulinum toxin type A among all practices throughout Canada for 2 consecutive years, and is counting for the ongoing year of 2018. The injecting physician performs each procedure with an informed understanding of adequate injection depths and locations, usage of various needles, and effective yet conservative amount needed per each treatment area. In addition to the use of neuromodulators for treating dynamic wrinkles, SKINLIFE also offers specialized and experienced procedures such as gummy smile and pebble chin correction, lip corner elevation, nose profile enhancement, facial slimming, and body contour smoothing and reduction (shoulder line and calves) with neuromodulator injections.


What are Neuromodulators?

Botulinum Type A Toxin Neuromodulators, such as BOTOX Cosmetic®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, are made of very low doses of purified protein produced by Clostridium botulinum bacterium. This Health Canada-approved medication is used for specific therapeutic uses, including non-surgical and temporary relaxation of muscles.


Neurmodulators such as BOTOX Cosmetic®, Dysport®, and/or Xeomin® are injected directly into muscles to block the transmission of nerve impulses to reduce the activity of the injected muscles. This temporary prevention of muscle contraction results in the reduction of facial lines; namely, the dynamic wrinkles in areas such as the forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet. When neuromodulators are injected with a purpose of size reduction for larger muscles for contour slimming, the relative inactivity of the injected muscles leads to the gradual reduction of the muscle size, yielding results of temporary slimming.

Results & Benefits

There is minimal to no downtime following neuromodulator injections. The results of BOTOX Cosmetic®, Dysport®, and/or Xeomin® take an average of 5-7 days to come into effect. The treatment duration itself is rather quick, lasting approximately 15 minutes depending on the area(s) treated. Because neuromodulators are not for permanent changes to the body, injected muscles, especially those that are strong and frequently used, gradually return to their pre-treatment state without periodic repeat treatments. Most patients repeat injections every 3-6 months for the maintenance of treatment benefits, depending on the treatment area(s), existing muscle movement, and patient preference.
