Botox ® & neuromodulators

If you are like most people, you’d like to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, furrows, and lines. Botox – a treatment that most people are familiar with – is in a class of injectable medications called neuromodulators, which help reduce dynamic lines caused by repeated facial expressions such as squinting, smiling, and frowning. Botox is also used to treat medical conditions like excessive sweating and migraines. Other neuromodulators include Xeomin ®, and Dysport ®.

The treatments takes approximately 30 minutes and 4 treatments are usually required for optimal results.
