Say Goodbye to Frown Lines and Crow's Feet With Neuromodulators

Anti-aging treatments are growing in popularity in the United States, as more and more women and men look for simple, safe ways to look as young as they feel. 

Last year alone, more than 8 million “anti-wrinkle” injections were performed in the US, using neuromodulators like Botox®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau®, making these treatments the most popular anti-aging treatments by far.

Rostami OPC is a leader in neuromodulator injections in Reston, Virginia, offering customized treatment plans aimed at helping each patient look and feel their best. If you’d like to reduce the appearance of your forehead lines and crow’s feet, here’s what you should know about these popular injections.

How neuromodulators work

Neuromodulators are injectables that target the signaling pathways between specific facial muscles and your brain. 

Normally when we make an expression, like a frown or a smile, our facial muscles respond in distinct ways, contracting or relaxing to make those expressions. Those muscle movements tug and pull on our skin, creating folds and lines called “dynamic” wrinkles. 

Over time, years of expressions cause those dynamic wrinkles to become etched deeply into our skin, creating the pesky lines we see as we get older.

When a neuromodulator is injected in precise locations, it blocks the nerve signals, preventing them from reaching the targeted muscles. As a result, the muscles don’t contract and tug on the overlying skin, and lines and wrinkles won’t form. The result: Skin that looks smoother, younger, and less ”worn out.” 

Neuromodulators are designed to treat dynamic wrinkles like:

For years, Botox was the only treatment available for dynamic wrinkles, but today, there are other options, too. At Rostami PC, we offer three different neuromodulators — Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau — to combat dynamic wrinkles. 

Each agent works in a similar way, but the solutions they use vary slightly, making some more effective for specific issues, like very deep frown lines or diffuse forehead wrinkles. That means our team can customize and “fine-tune” your treatment, based on your specific needs and goals. 

Neuromodulators vs. fillers

Cosmetic fillers, like Restylane®, Juvederm®, Belotero®, and Radiesse®, also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but instead of working on dynamic wrinkles, these injectables are designed to combat static lines and folds — wrinkles that form as a result of sagging, sun damage, and other factors not related to facial movement. 

Fillers can also plump up areas where you’ve lost natural volume, like your cheeks and your lips.

Even though these products work differently and treat different types of lines and wrinkles, one of the best things about fillers and neuromodulators is that they can be used together in different areas of your face to combat multiple signs of aging. 

With the right combination of injectables, you have a “liquid facelift,” diminishing the appearance of lines throughout your face while also restoring lost volume. Our team is experienced in combining injectable treatments to help each patient achieve their unique goals for optimal satisfaction.

Look younger without surgery

Neuromodulators can help you reduce the signs of aging without the cost, risks, or recovery time associated with cosmetic surgery. If they’re administered in your 20s and early 30s, they may even help prevent those lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place. 

Plus, injections can be repeated as needed to prolong your results, and the amount and frequency can be adjusted so you never need to worry about looking “fake” or “stiff.” 

Looking younger isn’t about being vain; it’s about feeling confident in the way you look — not just to others, but to yourself, too. 

With neuromodulators at Rostami OPC, you can do something to make yourself feel good, without harming your budget and without planning for a long period of recovery.
