Is BOTOX still on top?

Botox Cosmetic wrinkle treatments in Kitchener Waterloo

For years, people have relied on neuromodulators like BOTOX Cosmetic® to keep them youthful, smooth, and to decrease the severity of wrinkles. But are neuromodulators still the powerhouse that they once were?

We’re here to tell you that – yes. Yes, they sure are!

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were over 7 million neuromodulator treatments preformed in 2016, which is the highest yearly number of neuromodulator injections to date​.

So why neuromodulators?

Over time the repeated muscular contractions of our facial muscles, when we frown or squint, begin to form lines in these highly expressive areas. These are known as dynamic wrinkles. While wrinkles can be beautiful and a source of pride for many, they can also become frustrating and erode confidence for others. Our Beauty Nurse injector Majid uses neuromodulators to help relax those very mobile facial muscles, thus lessening the formation of dynamic wrinkles. This gives the face a much more relaxed, well-rested and refreshed appearance – and who doesn’t love that?

The new ways to use neuromodulators.

In the past, there were fears of a frozen face. That look that told people someone had too many neuromodulator treatments, and a face that didn’t move – yikes!

Beauty Nurse Majid is highly specialized to ensure that only the most natural outcomes are achieved, with the minimum amounts of neuromodulators used to achieve the looks that patients are seeking.

While neuromodulators alone can be miracle makers, our Beauty Nurses have begun to combine treatments to create the most comprehensive plans to achieve a patient’s outcome, with everything from neuromodulators, to dermal fillers, to laser therapies, to skin care.

The mix of neuromodulators and other non-invasive procedures has made successful non-surgical facial rejuvenation more possible than ever before. For example, the non-invasive facelift, also known as the Soft Lift™, is a customized treatment that combines the use of JUVÉDERM® facial filler with a wrinkle smoothing injection to instantly refresh your look. Soft Lift™ is a trademark of Allergan Inc. 

Patients are also starting to pay more attention to the quality of their skin and choosing to combine injectables with treatments for their skin. Patients who combine regular neuromodulators treatments with chemical peels enhance the health, vitality and radiance of their skin; this combination can create that youthful glow we all seek – all year long. And don’t forget medical grade skin care! Taking proper care of, and protecting your skin on a daily basis is incredibly important to get the most out of your treatments.
