Neuromodulators in Vancouver
Our Approach to Neuromodulators
At Pacific Plastic Surgery Group we approach Neuromodulator treatments with the understanding that every patient has their own aesthetic journey and your concerns, suggestions, and goals are important. Your lifestyle and beauty preferences are reflected in the unique treatment plan we develop with you.
We treat patients with an underpinning of science, prudence, and trusted safe injection practices. All of our providers are regularly trained on up-to-date injection techniques and best practices. We take great pride in being able to provide products authorized for sale by Health Canada for neuromodulator injections in Vancouver and the lower Mainland.
Pacific Plastic Surgery Group is ideal for patients seeking customized, advanced and tasteful aesthetic treatments to look and feel their best!
All of our injectable treatments, including Neuromodulators, are administered by trained, certified and registered medical professionals with years of experience in the medical aesthetics field.
Botox can help an adult patient of any age improve his or her appearance, not only giving a more youthful look, but also alleviating an overly concerned look, helping you look better refreshed or even more friendly. The most commonly treated areas are those where muscle activity influences facial features (i.e. laugh and frown lines), such as the following:
- Glabellar lines (a.k.a. “elevens” or frown lines)
- Wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet
- Forehead creases
- Corners of the mouth
- Lip lines
- A “cobblestoned” appearance to the chin
- Bunny lines – creases on the nose when smiling
It’s not uncommon for patients to receive other treatments along with Neuromodulators. Most commonly patients opt for an injectable dermal filler, which can add volume and structure.
Unfortunately, there is not a universal answer to this question. The amount of product needed varies greatly from one person to another, depending on many factors.
- How large the muscle in question is
- How strong the muscle is
- The placement or position of the muscle
- Which part of the face is receiving treatment
- Whether you are a man or woman since the muscles present differently
- What your goals are
Neuromodulator injections are non-surgical and completed during an office visit. Your initial treatment will begin with a consultation, during which you will meet with your Injector to discuss your concerns and goals.
During your consultation, your Injector will evaluate your area of concern and go over your medical history. Even though there is little risk of major complications, it is still imperative that you share your medical history fully and openly with your Injector before treatment, as certain allergies, skin and neurological conditions, or medications can make treatment unsuitable for a patient. For instance, you need to tell your Injector if you have been taking NSAIDs (e.g., aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen) or blood thinners.
Your Neuromodulator treatment
Your Injector will inject the Neuromodulator solution into the muscle at strategic points. Most patients describe a pinching feeling during the injection, though not much pain as the needles used to inject Neuromodulators are very thin and the injections are not very deep
You will be able to go back to your normal activities right after treatment, but your Injector may ask you to take the day off from exercise or other strenuous activity, and to keep your head upright for the rest of the day. Mild redness, swelling at the injection site, and bruising are the most common side effects.
Following treatment, you will not see results immediately. This is expected, so do not worry that treatment hasn’t worked. Final results are typically reached 3 to 7 days after initial treatments. If this is your first Neuromodulator treatment, your Injector may initially inject a more conservative amount and touch up the results during a follow up treatment. This helps to ensure natural, optimal results without the risk of over-treating an area.
This will vary depending on the patient, the area treated, and the product used, but results will typically last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. To maintain your results, your Injector will simply repeat the treatment, adjusting dosage as necessary to ensure optimal results.
Individuals may consider Neuromodulator for cosmetic reasons as they begin developing lines and wrinkles on their face due to common facial movements. Lines can appear on the face as early as your twenties depending on genetics. Individuals who are prone to lines may choose to use Neuromodulators as a preventative measure before deep-formed wrinkles occur. Overall, it is important to seek a consultation with an experienced Injector to ensure that this treatment is right for you.
Unlike dermal fillers, which can often be reversed with an enzyme called hyaluronidase, Neuromodulators cannot be reversed. Patients must wait until the Neuromodulators wears off, which is usually between 3-6 months.
