Neuromodulator injections

Constant use of forehead and eyebrow muscles can cause the development of deep vertical lines between the eyes (glabella) and horizontal frowning lines on the forehead. These lines can lead to a serious, stressed or anxious facial expression, while increasing the signs of aging. Furthermore, frequent use of the muscles around the eyes while smiling can result in the formation of crow’s feet. These wrinkles can be smoothed out or even eliminated with neuromodulator injections. How long do neuromodulator injections last? The treatment usually lasts 4 to 6 months, after which other injections are required. The effect may last longer after several treatments.

TREATED AREAS

Administration of botulinum-type A molecule, a purified toxin derived from Clostridium botulinum bacteria, into specific muscles prevents the nerve impulse from reaching these tissues, causing the muscles to relax. As the muscles relax, frown lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead are smoothed out, and crow’s feet disappear.

The treatment begins to act between 3 to 7 days after the injection, and its results can last for 4 to 6 months.
