WHAT IS A NEUROMODULATOR?
Works best on: Forehead lines, crows feet, “angry 11’s”
Neuromodulation treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that has become increasingly popular in recent years, thanks to its ability to produce a youthful and natural-looking appearance. Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Nuceiva are used to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, helping to smooth out the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and creases. The purified protein used in neuromodulators works by blocking the nerve impulses that cause the muscles to contract, resulting in a temporary decrease in muscle activity.
At our Calgary clinic, we use neuromodulators to treat a range of upper facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet, forehead lines, and glabellar lines (also known as the “11’s” between the brows). We also use them to treat smoker’s lines or to give a “lip flip” effect above the lip. Additionally, our highly experienced and trained practitioners can perform other cosmetic treatments with Botox and neuromodulators. When you come for a consultation, we will evaluate your skin and help you select the best treatment options based on your skin type, desired outcomes, and budget.
The dosage of neuromodulators varies depending on the size and strength of the muscle, which is why we offer personalized treatment plans tailored to each client. We determine the appropriate dosage by assessing the area that needs treatment, the depth of the wrinkles, and the strength of the underlying muscles. We often combine Botox and neuromodulators with dermal fillers to achieve optimal results, as fillers can provide additional volume and support to areas of the face that have lost volume or elasticity due to aging or other factors.
Overall, neuromodulators are a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, providing a natural-looking result that can last for several months.

Botox® and Dysport® are just two types of neurotoxins on the market. We choose these two for a variety of reasons but mainly to find the option that our patients like most!
