Neuromodulators

SKINLIFE: Galderma Canada’s No. 1  Botulinum Toxin Clinic – 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 an experienced injector certified by the provincial licensing authority. SKINLIFE also holds the status of being Galderma Canada’s Top Injector Champion in 2016, 2017, and 2018. SKINLIFE is the largest provider of Restylane® (injectable HA fillers), Dysport® (injectable botulinum toxin type A), and Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) among all practices throughout Canada for 3 consecutive years. For a single injector clinic like SKINLIFE, achieving the top volume status is a remarkable feat on its own merit. Medical research confirms that when doctors and institutions perform procedures more frequently, they do so with greater skill and improved safety. While the case volume is certainly not the only factor of consideration when selecting one’s cosmetic injector, SKINLIFE believes this may be an indicator of the level of skills, knowledge, and artistry behind each injection at our clinic. Our injection services are grounded firmly on in-depth anatomical knowledge and extensive clinical experience. We carefully select appropriate injection depth, location, delivery method, and dose. Our philosophy is to achieve natural and conservative improvement. In addition to the use of neuromodulators for dynamic wrinkles of forehead, frown lines, and crows feet, SKINLIFE also provides injection to improve gummy smile, smooth out pebble chin, elevate lip corner, enhance nose profile, slim jawline, and contour body (e.g.: neck/shoulder line adjustment, and leg/calf size reduction).

 

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.

HOW NEUROMODULATORS WORK

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. Neuromodulators are used to reduce the size of hypertrophic salivary glands (enlarged salivary glands) for defined jawline. The injected glands gradually reduce in size, resulting slimmer appearance of jawline and upper neck.

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.
