At Emmanuel Skinscience Medspa in West Bloomfield, MI, we offer a comprehensive range of neurotoxins, including Botox®, Dysport®, Juveau®, and Xeomin®, designed to address both fine and deep-set expression lines and wrinkles. These lines commonly appear on the face as we age due to the skin’s thinning and reduced elasticity caused by repetitive facial expressions and the natural aging process, leading to the loss of collagen and elastin that contribute to etched-in expression lines.
Neurotoxins such as Botox and others target the root cause of expression lines at the muscular level. By injecting specific muscles responsible for wrinkles, these neurotoxins induce muscle relaxation, resulting in a reduction in wrinkles and, if treated early, even complete removal of wrinkles over time.
Neuromodulators treat aesthetic concerns like wrinkle removal and wrinkle reduction, but it can also treat some health conditions like hyperhidrosis and TMJ pain. Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which individuals experience excessive sweating, typically from the armpits. This condition can easily drain confidence and make individuals feel self-conscious.
Injections into the area and muscles of the armpit can relax them and keep the sweat glands from overproducing sweat. TMJ pain is another common condition that’s caused by different factors, including teeth grinding, tension, and stress. Those who can’t find relief from TMJ pain often turn to this injectable, which relaxes the jaw muscles and, in doing so, decreases pain. In addition, here are a few more benefits of Botox and Neuromodulators:
If you want to treat expression lines and wrinkles to achieve younger-looking skin or resolve TMJ pain or hyperhidrosis, we offer the most effective injectables that can help you reach your wrinkle removal, aesthetic and medical goals. Our expert injector will create a unique treatment plan that helps safely and effectively meet each of your unique needs. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
A neuromodulator, sometimes called a neurotoxin, is a highly purified protein and is the active ingredient in all of our anti-aging injectables. It works by blocking the communication between the muscles injected during treatment and the brain.
When the nerve signals can’t carry the message to the muscles to contract, they remain relaxed, which leads to wrinkle reduction and wrinkle removal. Neurotoxins are safe, highly purified, and effective active ingredients that can reverse the signs of aging and help alleviate symptoms of muscular-related health conditions.
The injection process is quick and virtually painless. It only takes approximately ten minutes to receive treatment. Our injector will administer a series of quick and virtually painless treatments with a thin, fine needle. Some patients request a topical numbing solution before beginning the injections; others do not. Our injector can discuss the treatment with you to determine if you would benefit from a topical numbing solution or if it is unnecessary for you.
You won’t have to plan around downtime after your injections, but our injector will provide you with a list of detailed post-treatment instructions to ensure the best outcome. You must avoid strenuous workouts for 24 hours post-treatment, so if you plan on working out on the day of your appointment, be sure to schedule your workout before your treatment.
You also must avoid environments or activities that increase your body temperature as well as excess sun exposure. After your treatment:
All our neuromodulators are fast-acting treatments. Most patients begin to notice an improvement in their treatment areas and younger-looking skin within three to four days of their initial injections; for others, it takes closer to seven days.
The best results appear within 30 days of the initial treatment and last anywhere from three to four months. Regular follow-up treatments once your results begin to wear off will ensure that you can continue to live wrinkle-free long-term.
Botox can help treat a number of areas on the face, including the forehead, around the eyes, above the lips, around the mouth, the chin, and more.
Candidates generally range between the ages of 20 and 65, as wrinkles in individuals over 65 are considered “static” and do not disappear when the skin relaxes. There are other procedures that target static wrinkles. However, each patient is unique, and private consultations are recommended to determine the best and most effective treatment plan.
Botox is overall a safe cosmetic and even medical treatment.
Botox is NOT safe for those pregnant or breastfeeding, people with neuromodulator disorders, those allergic to Botox.
