Neuromodulators in Calgary

Cosmetic & Therapeutic Neuromodulator Injections

Neuromodulators are Health Canada approved drugs made with a special neurotoxin called botulinum A- used to intercept messages from the brain before they reach the targeted muscles. Commonly known by the brand names BOTOX (marketed by Allergan) and Dysport (marketed by Galderma), neuromodulators are prescribed to address a number of conditions, both cosmetic and therapeutic.

Cosmetic Neuromodulators

Cosmetic neuromodulators help reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, and can serve as a preventative treatment to delay the formation of new lines.

Wrinkles develop when the muscles under your skin cause the skin to crease in the same place repeatedly. Cosmetic neuromodulator treatments temporarily block the transmission of signals from nerve cells to muscles. As a result, the muscles stop moving, which keeps the skin from developing or deepening these dynamic creases. Treatments take about 10-15 minutes, are easily tolerated (injections feel like a pinch) and last four to six months.

Commonly treated areas include:

  • Forehead Creases
  • Glabella or Frown Lines
  • Eyebrow Lift
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Under Eye
  • Top of the Nose (Bunny Lines)
  • Upper Lip Lines
  • Gummy Smile
  • Chin Dimples

Therapeutic Neuromodulators

In addition to its cosmetic uses, neuromodulators can also be used to treat several chronic conditions. You may benefit from therapeutic neuromodulators if you have:

  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ/ TMD)

Insurance companies and benefits plans often provide coverage for these treatments.

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes chronic excessive sweating. Unlike the average person, someone with hyperhidrosis sweats even without exercising or feeling unusually warm.

Just as neuromodulators interrupt signals to the muscles, it can also interrupt signals to the sweat glands. We inject neuromodulators directly into the areas that produce the most sweat. Once the toxin is in full effect, you should experience reduced sweating for 6 to 12 months.

Temporomandibular joint disorder (also known as TMJ) is a condition causing tension and pain in the joint that hinges your jaw to your skull.

Neuromodulators help alleviate this symptom by relaxing the jaw muscles. By injecting the toxin into the muscle, we can reduce unnecessary and unintentional jaw movements or tension.

When it comes to resurfacing treatments, not all are created equal. Some provide a quick refresh, while others require more downtime. Some are meant to alleviate minor texture issues, and some go deeper into the dermis to tackle significant damage. Some target beautiful, youthful skin, and others target equally beautiful aging skin. Whatever option it may be, resurfacing treatment work to remove dead skin cells and layers of damage, leaving the skin sensitive to harmful UV rays, which makes the months before summer heat the best time to have resurfacing treatment done. Our team of specialists have years of experience that allow them to help patients understand what treatment their skin needs as well as the best way to take care of it post-treatment.
