Conveniently located to serve New York City

At MOMADerm in New York City, neuromodulators, such as Botox®, are often recommended to minimize and prevent facial wrinkles. Board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Charles has helped many men and women achieve and maintain a more youthful-looking facial appearance with this convenient, non-surgical treatment.

What AreNeuromodulators?

Neuromodulators refer to cosmetic injectables that contain the neurotoxin, botulinum toxin type A, as their active ingredient. Botox® is the most widely known and used neuromodulator for aesthetic treatments.

These cosmetic injectables offer patients a minimally invasive solution for lines and creases caused by repetitive facial muscle movements, such as those associated with making various facial expressions. Facial expression lines, which are often referred to as dynamic wrinkles, include frown lines, bunny lines, horizontal forehead creases, and crow’s feet.

How DoNeuromodulators Work?

Neuromodulators are injected into specific facial muscles to interfere with the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract. Stopping the muscles from receiving these signals works to hold them in a relaxed state, which means the overlying skin can remain smooth, as well. This makes neuromodulators a great option for patients with visible dynamic wrinkles and for younger patients who want to prevent these lines from forming.

Am I aCandidate?

If you are unhappy with your facial appearance due to dynamic wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for neuromodulator injections. Dr. Charles can determine your candidacy for this treatment during your initial consultation. At this appointment, he will evaluate the area(s) of concern and learn about your facial rejuvenation goals. He will also review your medical history and known allergies. Using this information, he will create a customized treatment plan that aligns with your needs.

What to Expect During aNeuromodulator Treatment

First, the treatment site will be cleansed and sterilized. A topical numbing cream can then be applied, if requested, to minimize discomfort during the injections.

Dr. Charles will draw from his advanced knowledge of facial anatomy and vast experience with cosmetic injectables to identify the optimal injection sites for accomplishing your desired results. He will then use a fine gauge needle to inject small amounts of Botox®, as needed.

Recovery and Results

There is no need for downtime after your neuromodulator injections, though you’ll be advised to remain in an upright position for four hours after your appointment. You will also want to postpone strenuous exercise and direct sun exposure for 24 hours.

It takes about two weeks to see the full effect of Botox®. Initial improvements may be noticeable within a week.

Neuromodulators provide temporary enhancement, so plan to schedule periodic follow-up appointments to maintain your rejuvenated look. Depending on the type of neuromodulator used, results can last from three to six months before retreatment is needed.

Cost of Neuromodulator Treatments

The price associated with your neuromodulator procedure will be determined during your consultation. Factors that can impact the overall cost include the number of areas being treated, the number of units needed to achieve your aesthetic goals, and the type of neuromodulator used.
