Neuromodulators and Botox Treatments

At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Newport Beach, our board-certified dermatologists offer neuromodulators, including Botox, to help you achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance. These non-surgical treatments can effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with smoother, more radiant skin.

What are Neuromodulators?

Neuromodulators are a type of injectable treatment that works by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for creating dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines, forehead creases, and crow's feet. The most well-known neuromodulator is Botox, but other options include Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.

These treatments are derived from a purified form of botulinum toxin, which, when injected in small doses, blocks the nerve signals that cause muscle contractions. By relaxing these muscles, neuromodulators can help smooth out existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming.

The Benefits of Neuromodulator Treatments

Neuromodulators like Botox offer numerous benefits for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance and combat the signs of aging. Some of the key advantages include:

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Prevents new wrinkles from forming
  • Creates a more youthful, refreshed look
  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive
  • Quick treatment with no downtime
  • Customizable to target specific areas of concern
  • Can be combined with other treatments for enhanced results

Our experienced dermatologists will assess your skin and discuss your goals to determine if neuromodulator treatments are right for you and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.

Common Treatment Areas for Neuromodulators

Neuromodulators like Botox are most commonly used to treat wrinkles and fine lines in the upper face, including:

  • Frown lines (glabellar lines) between the eyebrows
  • Forehead creases
  • Crow's feet around the eyes

In addition to these areas, neuromodulators can also be used to treat other concerns, such as:

  • Bunny lines on the sides of the nose
  • Lip lines (smoker's lines)
  • Chin dimpling
  • Neck bands
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the underarms, hands, or feet

Our skilled dermatologists will work with you to identify the areas that concern you most and create a treatment plan that targets these specific regions for optimal results.

What to Expect During and After Your Neuromodulator Treatment

Neuromodulator treatments are performed in our state-of-the-art facility by our board-certified dermatologists. The procedure typically takes 15-30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated.

Before your treatment, your dermatologist will cleanse your skin and may apply a topical numbing cream for your comfort. They will then use a fine needle to inject the neuromodulator into the targeted muscles. You may feel a slight pinch or pressure during the injections, but most patients find the treatment very tolerable.

After your treatment, you may experience some mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, but these side effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days. You can return to your normal activities immediately, but your dermatologist may advise you to avoid strenuous exercise and lying down for a few hours to prevent the product from migrating to other areas.

Results from neuromodulator treatments typically appear within 3-7 days and can last up to 3-4 months. To maintain your results, your dermatologist will recommend a personalized treatment schedule, which may include touch-up treatments every few months.

Combining Neuromodulators with Other Treatments

While neuromodulators like Botox are highly effective on their own, they can also be combined with other cosmetic treatments for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Some popular combination treatments include:

  • Dermal fillers to restore volume and smooth out deeper wrinkles
  • Laser resurfacing to improve skin texture and tone
  • Microneedling to stimulate collagen production and enhance skin quality
  • Chemical peels to exfoliate and brighten the skin

Our experienced dermatologists will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses all of your concerns and helps you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
