SMOOTH WRINKLES AND FINE LINES with neuromodulator treatments of BOTOX® and Dysport®.

Why Wrinkles Form

Wrinkles are a natural part of aging. Repeated muscle contractions, ultraviolet rays, air pollution, smoking, and genetics contribute to facial wrinkling. Youthful skin is robust with healthy connective tissue that resists the force of muscle contractions. With age and sun exposure, the skin thins and supporting connective tissue weakens. Simultaneously, the facial muscles remain hearty, resulting in an imbalance between the muscles of repetitive gestures (squinting, smiling, and raising eyebrows) and the dermis. The result — wrinkles.

Protecting your skin from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation is first and foremost since UV rays degrade the skin in multiple fashions, including break-down of elastin and collagen as well as prevention of new collagen. Avoiding tobacco smoke is also essential. Treating overactive muscles with prescription neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, or Xeomin) reduces wrinkles associated with repetitive muscle contractions and helps restore the dynamic balance between muscles and connective tissue.

What You Can Do

How It Works

Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin) temporarily impede nerve signal transmission to muscle fibers. When expressing (squinting, concentrating, looking perplexed, smiling), the muscle contraction is weaker, resulting in improved equilibrium between the skin and musculature. The result — smooth skin.

FAQs

How much does a wrinkle reducing treatment cost?
The average cost ranges between $250 to $550, depending on the neuromodulator used and the amount needed. During your consultation, ask your provider what to expect regarding the price of your treatment.
How long do the results of wrinkle reduction treatment last?
Neuromodulators are not permanent. The results typically last between two to four months and gradually wear off.
Is wrinkle reduction treatment painful?
On a ten-point pain scale, with ten being extreme pain, most clients rate a neuromodulator treatment as a one. We recommend taking two 500mg Tylenol capsules 45 minutes before your treatment to aid treatment tolerance.
Interested in wrinkle reduction treatment, what do I do next?
Book a consultation (video or in-person) with Dr. Brigham to determine if you are a candidate for treatment. Or, book a treatment directly with Nurse Stephanie, and a video consultation with Dr. Brigham will be included in your appointment.
