Neuromodulators are injectable wrinkle reducing medications that block the signals sent from the brain telling muscles to contract. This allows for the reduction of lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements, known as dynamic wrinkles. Muscles are responsible for all of our facial expressions like smiling, frowning, and laughing. Over the years, these repetitive movements contribute to the formation of wrinkles and lines in the face because they continuously fold and crush the skin.
Neuromodulators help to stop the formation of these wrinkles and lines by weakening the muscles that cause them. The lines that are most treatable with neuromodulators are in the forehead, near the eyes (a.k.a crows feet), and between the eyebrows (a.k.a ‘The 11s”).
Patients treated by Dr. Plant with neuromodulators will still make natural facial expressions, but the weaker muscles will not form lasting wrinkles and lines.
If you are looking to reduce wrinkles and lines in the face for a younger appearance, you may be a candidate for a neuromodulator treatment with either Botox Cosmetic ® or Dysport ®. These Wrinkle Reducers are available for both men and women seeking nonsurgical, minimally invasive facial rejuvenation solutions.
A consultation with Dr. Plant is necessary to determine if this treatment is right for you. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an allergy to these products then you should not undergo treatment with neuromodulators.
Dr. Plant offers Botox Cosmetic ® and Dysport ® which are the two most recognized brands in the field. There are slight differences between the two and after speaking with Dr. Plant, he can help to recommend the best product for you.
If you are considering neuromodulators, you should book a consult with Dr. Plant at his Toronto office so he can personally go over the different options available to get the results you desire, while also answering any questions you may have about your treatment. His office is conveniently located in central Toronto near both the 401 and the Don Valley Parkway which has allowed him to serve patients from the entire greater Toronto area, including Scarborough, Mississauga, Vaughan and Markham.
