Neuromodulators/Botox-type Injections in Raleigh, NC
Botulinum toxin type A is commonly known as Botox Cosmetic ®, Dysport ®, and Xeomin ®. Neuromodulator use is the number one popular and well known cosmetic procedure in the world. Treatments are used to smooth dynamic wrinkles or those that form as a result of facial movements. The most commonly treated areas are the forehead, the area between the eyes (glabella), and around the eyes (crow’s feet) as these muscle are used in every day expression. The neuromodulator works by blocking the impulse for the muscle contraction, thus weakening the muscle contraction and providing a softer look. Onset of action is usually 3-10 days, and typical duration of treatment effect is around 3 months. Therefore, it is a procedure that is considered a “maintenance” one and must be repeated with Dr. Amber L. Allen for best optimal results.
