Better Than Botox

The Neuromodulators

Are you beginning to notice the early signs of aging on your face? Do you see “frown lines” between your eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, or perhaps “crow’s feet” radiating from the corners of your eyes? The outward signs of getting older often affect the way we see ourselves. It is possible to overcome the telltale signs of aging and regain our youthful complexion with the use of neuromodulators.

Are you beginning to notice the early signs of aging on your face? Do you see “frown lines” between your eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, or perhaps “crow’s feet” radiating from the corners of your eyes? The outward signs of getting older often affect the way we see ourselves. It is possible to overcome the telltale signs of aging and regain our youthful complexion with the use of neuromodulators.

Neuromodulator injections work by relaxing the muscles that contract and cause wrinkles, helping reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the facial area caused by smiling, frowning, and other facial movements. Patients achieve skin that is smoother, tighter, and more youthful looking.

“I consider neuromodulators to be a sculpting tool. When injected precisely, I can lift the tail of the eyebrow, turn up the corners of the mouth and much more.”

At Plush.MD we offer both Dysport and Xeomin treatments. According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, “neuromodulator treatments are the most popular single cosmetic procedure in the U.S.”

The most commonly used neuromodulators include Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox. Although each formula differs slightly, they all work in approximately the same way.

All of these neuromodulator treatments last from three to four months. Patients who repeat the treatments every few months over a period of time typically see longer-lasting results.

DYSPORT

The face is often the first place to display signs of aging with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging as the skin overlying facial muscles lose its elasticity with repeated motion. Dysport works by countering the effects of the muscles under skin, and by weakening its ability to contract. It stops the skin from creasing, leaving you with even, smooth skin you’ll love to show off.

Xeomin

Xeomin is a wrinkle-reducing neuromodulator that is the preferred choice for many patients. Often referred to as the “Pure-Tox”, Xeomin is the only neuromodulator with a double-filtered formula that removes unnecessary proteins. Xeomin works very similarly to Botox.  It is considered the “Naked” neuromodulator because it does not use “complexing

Botox Lip Flip

A few units of Dysport or Xeomin are precisely placed along the upper lip to relax and “flip” the lip to make more of the upper lip visible. This creates a fuller, plumper, but natural-appearing upper lip. The lip flip gives the illusion of fuller lips without increasing volume. The lip flip can also be used to accentuate the results of your lip filler, either in a combined procedure or as a touch-up. The results are subtle and highly personalized, looking less “I’ve had something done” and more “I woke up like this.”

The Nefertiti Lift

A defined, sharply contoured jawline and neck is a hallmark of beauty and youth. With age, as the skin begins to lose its natural suppleness and plumpness, the muscles under the jaw tend to pull down the cheeks, leading to loss of jawline definition and flattened cheeks.

A Nefertiti Lift (named after the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, who was renowned for her beautiful, elongated neckline), is a non-invasive neck lift treatment that uses Botox, Dysport or Xeomin to relax the neck muscle, creating a longer, thinner-looking neck. This makes the jawline appear tighter and more defined and can provide a slight lift to the corners of the mouth, softening the appearance of frown lines and contributing to a more youthful, contoured jawline.

Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Sweating is the body’s natural cooling mechanism, but when the body produces more sweat than is necessary to cool the body, this may be an indicator of a condition called hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is marked by excessive sweating.

Neuromodulators are safely and effectively used to treat hyperhidrosis. These neuromodulators block the chemicals used by overstimulated nerves that tell sweat glands to produce more perspiration.

Before the procedure, a topical anesthetic is used under the arms for 20-30 minutes for maximum comfort. Then, multiple tiny injections are delivered, using a micro-needle, throughout the axillary area. Once this process is complete, you can return to work and your daily activities without any downtime required. Results take effect approximately 5 to 7 days after treatment and typically last up to six months.

Gold Microinfusion

Gold Microinfusion delivers small amounts of neuromodulator below the skin surface in a more diluted and superficial dose. This treatment works on the upper layers of the skin for a softer and more natural look instead of a frozen look created by injecting muscles to block movement. The result is that the skin appears relaxed, smoother, and glowing, with improved skin tone and tighter pore size. In addition, this can decrease oil production and the redness of rosacea.
