Neuromodulators are injectables that use botulinum toxin to target various areas of the face and body. These injectables effectively reduce the appearance of forehead lines, glabella lines, crow’s feet, and bunny lines while also offering solutions like the lip flip to improve lip shape and a Nefertiti neck lift for platysma bands. Neuromodulators can even alleviate migraines and combat excessive sweating. Inspire Aesthetics offers personalized neuromodulator treatments to address various aesthetic and therapeutic concerns.
The Versatile Uses of Neurotoxin Injections
Neuromodulators are a class of medical and cosmetic treatments that utilize botulinum toxin injections, such as Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, Jeuveau®, and Daxxify®, to temporarily paralyze or relax specific muscles. By blocking nerve signals in the targeted areas, neuromodulators can smooth wrinkles and fine lines, addressing issues like forehead lines, crow’s feet, and glabella lines. Neuromodulators can also offer therapeutic relief for conditions like migraines and excessive sweating. Our providers carefully select the most appropriate neuromodulators for your specific needs after a consultation.
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Bunny lines around the bridge of the nose
- Perioral lines around the lips
- Platysma bands and neck wrinkles (Nefertiti neck lift)
- TMJ pain and discomfort
- Insufficient lip volume (lip flip)
- Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
Types of Neuromodulator Treatments
Neuromodulators effectively treat dynamic wrinkles by interfering with the communication between nerves and muscles. When injected, botulinum toxin inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. This blocking action causes the targeted muscles to relax, preventing them from contracting vigorously. As a result, dynamic wrinkles, such as those formed during facial expressions like smiling or frowning, become less prominent and gradually smooth away.
Nefertiti Neck Lift
The Nefertiti Neck Lift is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes neuromodulators to achieve a more youthful and defined neck appearance. By strategically injecting the toxin into the platysma muscle of the neck, it induces muscle relaxation, causing a lifting effect. This treatment counteracts the downward pull of the platysma muscle, reducing sagging and creating a smoother, tighter neck contour. Over time, it helps restore a graceful and elegant neck profile.
Smile correction involves the injection of Botox into the Depressor Anguli Oris (DAO) muscle, which plays a key role in pulling down the corners of the mouth. Botox temporarily inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contraction. By targeting the DAO muscle, Botox reduces its activity, allowing the opposing muscles to exert greater upward force on the mouth’s corners. This effectively lifts the corners of the mouth.
The lip flip is a cosmetic procedure that uses neuromodulators, usually Botox, to enhance the appearance of the upper lip. Injecting Botox into the orbicularis oris muscle surrounding the lips relaxes the muscle’s tension, causing a slight upward curl of the lip’s edge. This subtle lifting effect exposes more of the upper lip, making it appear fuller and more defined. Unlike dermal fillers, which add volume, the lip flip accentuates the natural shape of the lips.
Neuromodulators offer relief for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) by targeting the muscles involved in jaw movement. These injectables work by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the masseter jaw muscles. This prevents excessive muscle contractions, reducing tension and alleviating the symptoms of TMD, such as jaw pain, headaches, and teeth grinding. Neuromodulators provide a non-invasive solution to manage TMJ discomfort.
Neuromodulators can effectively treat migraines through their impact on muscle tension. When injected into specific areas of the head and neck, they block the release of neurotransmitters involved in pain signaling. Additionally, they relax the surrounding muscles, reducing tension and pressure on nerves. This combination of effects results in a significant reduction in the frequency and intensity of migraines for many individuals.
Neuromodulators provide relief for hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating, by interrupting the communication between nerves and sweat glands. When injected into the affected areas, usually the underarms, palms, or soles of the feet, they inhibit the release of the neurotransmitter that triggers sweat gland activation. This temporary blockage results in reduced sweat production, alleviating the symptoms of hyperhidrosis.
