Neuromodulators are a purified protein that blocks receptors at nerve endings, preventing release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, thereby preventing muscle contraction. Neuromodulators are used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles of the face into which it is injected, and to prevent future wrinkles.
It takes from 4-7 days to see optimum results for Neuromodulators. You may require additional units at a subsequent follow-up visit within two weeks to complete the injection series to obtain the goals we have discussed. 10-20 units per area is only an average and is by no means the standard. Males usually require more than females. People with stronger muscles may require more. Neuromodulators will not fill any wrinkles/lines; they relax and smooth the moving lines, not stationary wrinkles. The results from a Neuromodulators can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 4 months or more. The duration will vary from patient to patient.
