The “Neuromodulators”

Jump To:

Have you been thinking about getting Botox® injections? Aging issues can be easily addressed with the most common non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the world: injections of Botox® and Dysport® These neuromodulators take care of a number of signs of facial aging. At Beach Aesthetics, we offer amazing Botox® results in El Segundo.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to look your absolute best. Unfortunately, aging has a way of making things difficult. As we age, fine lines and wrinkles seem to appear out of nowhere and rob the face of its youthful beauty. This can be very troubling, particularly when you feel much younger than you think you look.

Certain problematic wrinkles are common to many patients, including frown lines (vertical lines that form between the eyebrows and are also called “The Elevens”), crow’s feet (fine lines that form at the corners of the eyes), and horizontal forehead lines.

At Beach Aesthetics, we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of care in restoring our patients to a more youthful and refreshed appearance. We do so with an individualized approach, carefully assessing each patient’s anatomy to help them achieve the best results possible – safely, comfortably, and reliably.

How Do Neuromodulators (Botox®/Dysport®) Work?

Botox® and Dysport® are prescription medications that contain a substance known as botulinum toxin type A. This substance is a neurotoxin capable of causing temporary local relaxation of the muscle into which it is injected.

How does this help with frown lines, crows’ feet, and forehead lines? First, it is important to understand the difference between dynamic and static lines.

Dynamic lines are indentations that form on the face when the muscles are contracting (such as when you are making a worried or surprised expression). In contrast, static lines are severe and are permanently etched on the face even when your muscles are at rest. It is the dynamic lines that Botox® and Dysport® can improve or erase.

These products reduce the appearance of dynamic lines by temporarily affecting the muscles that are causing the lines to form. Once injected, the muscles become relaxed, which results in the reduction or disappearance of these wrinkles, leading to a much smoother appearance of the skin. If these products are used early enough, they may also help prevent static lines.

Studies and years of clinical results have proven these injectable products to be safe for use in achieving cosmetic improvement in facial lines. Smoothing away these lines restores the face to a more youthful appearance.

    What to Expect from Your Treatment

    After pictures are taken and the facial muscles are assessed, the treatment sites are carefully injected with the precise amount of product needed. The injections only take about 20 to 30 minutes to perform and produce very little discomfort. There is no need for any bandages or dressings, and no downtime will be required afterward; patients can go right back to their day.

    It typically takes around three to four days to begin to see the results of your treatment. The full results of your treatment are seen 10 to 14 days after injection. In most cases, results last three to four months, though the exact length can vary from patient to patient. After this time, patients can usually return for follow-up treatments to maintain their youthful results.

    Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®/Dysport®?

    There’s a reason why it seems that everyone is doing it. In all likelihood, if you have dynamic lines, you are a good candidate for neuromodulators like Botox. The treatments are safe, effective, and affordable. The good news is that in the unlikely event that you don’t like your results, the medication eventually wears off and your appearance returns to baseline.

    Of course, there are some individuals who are not good candidates for neuromodulators. Contraindications include pregnancy, rare individuals who are hypersensitive to these products, and those with an infection at the treatment site.

    Additionally, if you have harsh midface wrinkles like the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, or parentheses lines, you may be better served by choosing a dermal filler instead of a neuromodulator. Dr. Rayman can let you know if you are a good candidate when you come in for your Botox consultation in El Segundo.

  • Treatment Cost

    The cost of your Botox treatment in El Segundo will depend on several factors like the types of issues being treated, the number of areas being treated, and the amount of Botox needed for optimal results. Price and payment options for your Botox treatment will be discussed during your consultation.

    I decided to begin treatments for Botox with Marissa, the in-house RN. Wow! She is impressive. Truly meticulous and extremely skilled. Prior to seeing Marissa, I had five years under my belt of facial fillers and Botox from various cosmetic surgeons in Beverly Hills. I have never been this happy with my Botox results. Marissa is honest and tells you what you need and what you DON’T. I have stuck with her for one year and I will continue to do so for as long as I continue aging.
