If you’re considering Botox and other neuromodulator injections, read on to learn how they can benefit adult clients of nearly any age.
What Is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® is a neuromodulator, a treatment that utilizes Clostridium Botulinum toxin to reduce nerve activity in the muscles. When injected, neuromodulators can reduce wrinkles in the targeted area and give the client a more youthful, refreshed look.
Botox® was the first neuromodulator available to the public, and has been extensively studied in over 16 years of peer-reviewed scientific and medical journals. To this day, Allergan’s Botox® Cosmetic is the most renowned neuromodulator on the market. This FDA-approved cosmetic treatment is a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, specifically between the brows, forehead and outer eyes.
Derived from the botulinum toxin A, Botox® Cosmetic is injected into targeted muscles which blocks the nerve impulses from releasing the substance acetylcholine. As acetylcholine is responsible for activating muscle activity, blocking it with Botox® Cosmetic results in weaker muscle contractions. This in turn, diminishes the presence of wrinkles and improves facial appearance.
How Does My Age Impact The Benefits Of Botox?
Botox® injections are particularly beneficial for clients in their 20s and 30s, as they can help to prevent the formation of wrinkles and lines. At Youthology, our experts can assess muscle tone and observe how the face moves during different expressions in order to predict where wrinkles or lines may develop in the future, and treat those areas preemptively.
While starting Botox® treatments at an earlier age can have its benefits, it is never too late to receive these injectable cosmetic treatments. Clients in their 40s, 50s, and 60s can still experience a lift in their appearance from Botox®. This is due to the fact that Botox® relaxes the muscles, which can help to minimize wrinkles and firm the skin. Furthermore, the collagen-stimulating effects of Botox® can be exceptionally beneficial. In receiving Botox® injections, mature clients can target both wrinkles and reduced collagen production.
What Other Neuromodulators Are Available At Youthology Medical?
- Dysport® by Galderma is a popular neuromodulator treatment that boasts some unique advantages. It has a smaller molecular size than other treatments, which allows it to spread quicker over a larger area. This results in Dysport® having a faster time of onset, and in turn, faster results in diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.
- XEOMIN® is an appealing treatment option for some patients due to its single-ingredient composition. While both Botox® and Dysport® both contain additional ingredients, XEOMIN® contains Incobotulinum Toxin Type A and no other additional additives or preservatives. It is used to reduce muscle contractions in the face and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
