LOCATED IN BEACHWOOD | SERVING CLEVELAND AND NORTHEAST OHIO
Neuromodulators, including Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify, are FDA-approved treatments designed to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines temporarily. By relaxing targeted facial muscles, these treatments offer a smoother, refreshed complexion without surgery. Popular among individuals seeking non-invasive anti-aging solutions, neuromodulators have become a cornerstone in modern aesthetic medicine.
How It Helps
Neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify block the nerve impulses that contract muscles. This interruption helps minimize dynamic wrinkle formation and softens lines at rest. In cosmetic surgery, they are often used in the upper third of the face, specifically, the vertical lines between the brows, crow’s feet, and horizontal forehead creases.
What to expect before an injectable procedure
Double-board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Diana Ponsky and her highly skilled clinical staff will begin your consultation by asking about your goals and expectations, then discuss any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors. After examining, photographing, and analyzing your face, the surgeon will discuss potential options, a recommended course of treatment, and outcomes, risks, or potential complications.
What to expect during an injectable procedure
Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify injections can be done at a lunchtime appointment. The injection sites will be mapped, your skin will be cleansed, and injections will be performed. Most patients describe the injections as a slight pinch.
What to expect after an injectable procedure
Keep your head elevated and avoid vigorous exercise for four hours after treatment. Avoid rubbing the injection site because it can cause the solution to migrate. These neuromodulators typically begin to work in 3-5 days, with the full effect at about 10 days, as the facial muscles cause wrinkles to relax. As bruising can occur from any injection, make appointments at least several days before significant events. Makeup can be used to cover any bruising that may occur.
