Interested in improving fine lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines that can make you appear tired, stressed or angry? Neuromodulators from our Toronto-based practice are injections that are used to diminish the appearance of unwanted expression wrinkles on the face to give a more refreshed and youthful appearance. These injections have been used safely for over 35 years in cosmetic procedures as well as in medical treatments for conditions such as blepharospasm, migraines and excessive sweating.

  • What Are Neuromodulators?

Neuromodulators are purified proteins derived from the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. They work by preventing the muscles from recognizing nerve signals to contract so the muscle remains relaxed. Miniscule amounts are injected into specific areas of muscles causing the unwanted movements and the skin overlying these muscles remains smooth. The effects usually last three to four months and are then repeated for maintenance. If you decide at some point to discontinue the treatment, your muscles will gradually regain their contracting action and the lines will slowly redevelop as before.

  • What Areas Can Be Treated?

Neuromodulators can be used in several other areas besides frown lines. They can improve lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, bunny lines on the nose, lip lines, a downturned mouth, a dimpled chin and neck bands.

  • Who Can Have Treatment?

Women and men who would like a more relaxed appearance can benefit from neuromodulator injections. They not only treat lines and wrinkles that have already developed, but also prevent existing lines from deepening. As soon as fine lines are noticed at rest, it is time to start treatment. Many individuals begin injections in their 20s to prevent the formation of lines and maintain a youthful appearance.

  • Can Neuromodulators be Combined With Other Treatments?

Definitely! Neuromodulators can be used with fillers which restore facial volume for a youthful appearance. They can be combined with radio frequency skin tightening, lasers and microneedling to minimize unwanted muscle movement and keep areas smooth while new collagen is being deposited.
