Neuromodulators (Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport®, Xeomin®)

The Basics

Expressions are natural. At Entière Dermatology, maintaining a natural look is important to us. With repetitive movement and age, sometimes expressions become exaggerated, making you look more upset or worried than you actually are. Neuromodulators block nerves from signaling to the underlying muscles to soften contraction. Our customized approach not only treats forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, or frown lines, but also the chin wrinkles, lift the nose, raise the brow, corners of the mouth, bunny nose lines, under the eyes, enlarged masseter muscles, and the neck. These toxins are all derived from safe, highly purified, and controlled doses of botulinum toxin. Since the 1980s, over millions of injections have been performed safely and effectively.

What to Expect

  • It takes about 1-2 weeks to see the full effect. We schedule a complimentary follow-up at 2 weeks after the treatment for any small tweaks if needed.
  • The small red bumps disappear minutes after your treatment.
  • Results lasts up to 3-4 months.

Our Recommendations

  • Avoid bending forward, getting a massage, napping, putting your face into a pillow, or strenuous exercise 4 hours after treatment.
  • Don’t book a facial or massage the same day as your treatment.
  • Avoid any unnecessary blood thinners such as vitamins, fish oil, vitamin E, supplements, aspirin, ibuprofen, Advil, Aleve, and alcohol for 3-7 days before to minimize the chances of bruising.
  • If you’re on aspirin or blood thinners for a medical indication, please continue them.
  • Neuromodulator injections are currently not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
