As of March 20, 2020 we are no longer seeing patients in our office due to COVID-19. We are happy to continue caring for you during these uncertain times. We are now offering remote appointments for new and established patients although we will no longer be able to see you in person. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
Neuromodulators are types of injection treatments best performed by a board-certified dermatologist to minimize and prevent wrinkles and lines around the face. At The Dermatology Institute of Boston, there are three different neuromodulators available: Botox®, Dysport®, and Daxxify®.
Daxxify will be available in early 2023 at our offices. It offers many of the same benefits as Botox or Dysport but is said to last twice as long.
Neuromodulators, like Botox, work by relaxing the muscles that are responsible for creating wrinkles in the first place. This is achieved by temporarily limiting nerve signals to the muscles. After treatment, the muscles become relaxed and thereby permit the overlying skin to smoothen and wrinkle less during facial expressions. Finding the right balance in dosage to allow muscle expression while preventing the skin to wrinkle is one reason why choosing qualified injectors like Dr. Graber and Dr. Meyer is so important.
Fine lines on forehead before Dysport®
20 days after Dysport®
There are several reasons why your skin may start to show signs of premature aging. Overexposure to harmful UV rays, certain medications, harsh cosmetic products, a poor skin care regimen, poor nutrition, and genetics are some of the causes of premature aging.
When fine lines and wrinkles appear, it isn’t too late to do something about it. Neuromodulators can give you healthy-looking young skin.
They are all used to lessen or even eliminate the lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. These wrinkles are also popularly referred to as worry lines, 11 lines, or Crow’s feet. Botox® and Dysport® are different brand neuromodulators that work in similar ways.
Before it was used for cosmetic purposes, Botox® was medically used to treat lazy eye, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, repetitive neck spasm, and to prevent chronic migraines.
Botox® and Dysport® offer astounding results and can make you look several years younger. In addition to adopting a good and healthy lifestyle, taking care of your skin will help you look and feel younger as well. Contact The Dermatology Institute of Boston to schedule an appointment.
Our goal here at The Dermatology of Institute of Boston is protect the health of our patients and staff. To continue caring for our patients during these uncertain times, while strictly adhering to the guidelines set by the CDC, we will be only offering virtual consultations. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
