There is no preparation needed for neuromodulator injections; however, we do recommend you schedule a free consultation from our Medical Doctors. This is in order to evaluate if neuromodulators or another treatment is the best option to achieve your desired goals.
All treatments begin with a free consultation where our Medical Doctors who are trained in the use of Botox will address your concerns. During this consult a customized treatment plan will be devised. This process involves taking your medical history, along with your satisfaction with any past treatments sought. Next, your concerns are fully explored by our Medical Doctors and any solutions offered by neuromodulators are outlined in detail.
Unlike other providers you may encounter, all of our neuromodulators are administered by Medical Doctors, 100% of the time.
During the treatment itself, our Medical Doctors will carefully inject neuromodulators at specific anatomical points with a very small needle. Most people feel at most a quick pinch from the injection. If requested, the doctor can apply local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. When this option is used the pinch is nearly indistinguishable from the gentle pressure of a light touch. In most cases, neuromodulator treatments can easily be completed in under thirty minutes.
Neuromodulators have very minimal to no downtime. At most, one can expect some localized swelling and/or redness for a few hours following. Otherwise, this procedure requires no recovery time.
Immediately following a neuromodulator treatment, you may return to nearly all normal activities with no issues. You may have some slight redness or swelling at the injection site, but this usually resolves spontaneously within a few hours.
You will begin to see results from neuromodulators within a few days (3-4 on average), with most of the results appearing within a week. It is important to note that the results are a very natural looking expression rather than the common misunderstanding of a “frozen” face. You will notice a change. Most people describe this charge as appearing well rested, refreshed, or softened.
Hyperhidrosis is usually caused by the peripheral nervous system and brain mistakenly sending messages to stimulate the sweat glands in the skin. Normally such signals are sent when one is feeling hot. But such signals can happen for other reasons such as stress or hormones. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to have a genetic predisposition to this condition.
During your consultation, our Medical Doctors explore the potential reasons for your excessive sweating and determine the best treatment plan to address this concern.
Botox uses the same process by which it relaxes muscles to also temporarily disable the link between sweat glands in the skin and the nerves that control them. This decoupling of nerves and the sweat glands prevents nerves from turning on. The result is that undesired sweat is no longer produced while the Botox is working.
The cost of a neuromodulator treatment varies with each person based on the area treated, their current anatomy, and their desired results. These factors determine how many injections and what doses of neuromodulator is necessary or whether other treatments or procedures should be performed as part of the overall treatment plan. During your consultation the cost as well as payment options are thoroughly reviewed. We accept cash, credit cards and debt.
