It’s time to think about Botox®! Botox is considered a neuromodulator – it blocks the nerve impulses to specific muscles. At Visconti Medical Spa, we have three different neuromodulators available – Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin®. They are all FDA-approved purified proteins that are injected into specific muscles to reduce their activity.
We specifically target muscles that aren’t essential for facial expression, such as your frown muscles or muscles that wrinkle the forehead. You will see dramatic results without looking “done”. It normally takes several days for the neuromodulator to take effect (anywhere from 3-7 days). We strongly recommend these neuromodulators to clients in their 30s for preventative purposes – otherwise, those stubborn wrinkles will eventually turn into permanent lines and scars if left untreated.
If you have a specific neuromodulator that you prefer, simply inform our office staff and we will take care of the rest! And if it’s your first time? Don’t worry about a thing! We will discuss all of your options at your initial consultation and help you decide which neuromodulator is right for you. Some patients don’t notice a difference among the products, while others have a slight preference over the others.
You’ll notice the first results after a few days, and they typically last 3-4 months. Some wrinkles, especially in younger patients, may go away completely. Other patients may require dermal fillers, such as Radiesse®, for optimal results. So schedule your consultation and find out how fast and simple the injections are! You’ll be in and out in no time!
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin all work beautifully to smooth away wrinkles in multiple areas including crow’s feet and forehead lines!
