Neuromodulator Injectables

At SkinPerfected in Naperville, IL, we understand the subtle art of enhancing natural beauty with neuromodulators. These treatments can diminish the appearance of wrinkles, offering a more youthful and refreshed look. Our approach focuses on delivering results that harmonize with each patient’s unique facial and musculature structure, striving for a look that is both elegant and natural.

When considering neuromodulator treatments, it’s important to think about the duration of their effects. The longevity of these treatments varies based on several factors, including the individual’s skin type, lifestyle, and the specifics of the treatment itself. We provide comprehensive information and guidance to help our patients understand what to expect in terms of treatment duration and results.

What Are Neuromodulator Injectables?

Neuromodulators are injectables designed to temporarily ease the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Acting on nerve signals, these agents relax facial muscles, smoothing out skin for a more youthful appearance. The results are long-lasting but temporary, giving our patients more flexible options when it comes to their aesthetics.

How Are Neuromodulators Used?

Neuromodulators are effective anti-aging injections, targeting specific areas prone to dynamic wrinkles, like crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. By carefully administering these injections, we work to achieve a delicate balance between natural expression and aesthetic improvement. We make sure each patient receives a personalized treatment plan, focusing on their unique facial features and anti-aging goals.

Different Types of Neuromodulators

Botox®

As one of the most recognizable neuromodulator injectables, Botox is known for its effectiveness in reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines. Its classic formulation offers predictable results, and it is FDA-approved for use in many different areas, including on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows.

How Long Does Botox Last?

The impact of Botox on wrinkle reduction is both rapid and enduring. Patients may begin to notice results in five to seven days, with full results visible within 14 days of treatment. Typically, the effects of Botox last three to four months, varying from patient to patient based on individual factors and aesthetic goals​​.

Dysport®

Dysport, another type of neuromodulator, is designed to treat frown lines between the eyebrows. It’s known for its natural-looking results, helping patients maintain their facial expressions while reducing wrinkles. Dysport is a go-to option for patients seeking a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.

How Long Does Dysport Last?

Dysport’s effects on wrinkle reduction can be both significant and durable. A single treatment, which typically takes about 10-20 minutes, can improve the look of frown lines for three to four months. The longevity of the results, coupled with minimal downtime, makes Dysport a favorable choice for patients looking for more convenient wrinkle solutions​​.

Daxxify®

Daxxify is a newer addition to the family of neuromodulators and stands out for its prolonged effectiveness. It is specifically formulated to address frown lines, providing a significant improvement in their appearance. Daxxify’s unique formulation caters to patients looking for a longer-lasting solution to their aesthetic concerns.

How Long Does Daxxify Last?

The results of Daxxify last up to six months on average. Daxxify also stands out as one of the fastest-acting neuromodulators, delivering noticeable results in as little as 24 hours. This combination of extended duration and quick action makes Daxxify an especially attractive option for those seeking longer-lasting and prompt results.

What Factors Can Impact Longevity?

The Speed of Your Metabolism

The speed at which your body metabolizes substances can influence the duration of a neuromodulator treatment. Faster metabolic rates may lead to a quicker breakdown of the neuromodulator, potentially shortening its effectiveness.

The Dosage Administered

The amount of neuromodulator used in the treatment may play a role in how long the results last. Higher dosages may extend the duration of effects, while lower dosages might lead to shorter-lasting results.

Your Muscle Strength and Activity

Muscle strength and facial muscle activity are key factors in wrinkle reduction. Stronger muscles or those that are more active might require more frequent treatments, as they can metabolize the neuromodulator more quickly.

The Area Treated

Different areas of the face respond differently to neuromodulators. Areas with finer lines might retain the effects longer than those with deeper wrinkles, where muscle activity is more pronounced.

Sun Exposure and Skincare

Exposure to the sun and your skincare regimen can also affect the longevity of neuromodulator effects. Proper skincare and sun protection can prolong the smooth appearance achieved by the treatment.

Certain Lifestyle Factors

Lifestyle choices, such as diet, exercise, and smoking, can impact the duration of a neuromodulator treatment. A healthier lifestyle may contribute to longer-lasting results.

The Frequency of Past Treatments

The history and frequency of past neuromodulator treatments can affect how long current treatments last. Repeated treatments may lead to longer-lasting effects, as the muscles become accustomed to the neuromodulator.
