Wrinkle Smoothing Injections

Wrinkle Smoothing Injections at MODA Medical Aesthetics

At MODA, we celebrate getting older, but we understand the desire to look as youthful on the outside as we feel on the inside. We’re all about keeping things natural. Neuromodulators like Botox, are our most popular treatment which quickly and dramatically reduces signs of aging without any downtime. It’s like a fast pass to feeling and looking refreshed!

Understanding Botox: How Does it Work?

So, what exactly is Botox and how does it do its magic? Botox is a super purified protein made by a bacteria called clostridium botulinum. When it’s injected, it kind of puts the brakes on certain muscles by blocking the signals from the nerves that tell those muscles to move. This temporary pause in muscle activity helps smooth out those pesky wrinkles that pop up from all that muscle action over time.

What Can I Expect?

Get ready for real, noticeable results: As early as 24 to 48 hours, you can start seeing changes, especially if you’re targeting those moderate to severe frown lines. Full effect will be at the 2 week mark. Results typically last 3-4 months.

As for the feeling, some folks describe the sensation as a little pinch. But no worries, your injector can use different techniques to minimise any discomfort.

When it comes to the actual injection, it’s a breeze – only about 10 minutes long. Your injector will chat with you about your goals and do a facial analysis to pinpoint the areas that need a little extra attention.

Here’s the beauty of it: You’ll still look like yourself, just with fewer noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet. It is all about enhancing your natural beauty while preserving your unique expressions. That’s why it’s crucial to trust your treatment to a skilled expert who understands facial anatomy inside and out.

And the cherry on top? Minimal downtime. In fact, some folks call it a “lunchtime procedure” because you can get back to your normal routine right after you’re done. So go ahead, schedule your treatment and get ready to face the world with confidence!

Which Areas Can Be Treated with Botox?

At MODA, we use nueromodulators like Botox, Xemomin or Dysport injections to address a variety of concerns, helping clients achieve their desired look. Here are just some of the key areas we target:

Crow’s Feet: Those fine lines that tend to show up at the outer corners of your eyes or smile lines. 

Frown Lines: Also known as glabellar lines or the ’11s’.

Forehead Lines: Those horizontal lines above your eyebrows.

Drooping Brows: Lift and rejuvenate your brow area for a more youthful appearance. 

Bunny Lines: Smooth out those wrinkles caused by scrunching up your nose.

Prominent Platysmal Bands in the Neck (‘turkey neck’): Soften the appearance of ‘tendons’ that stick out from your neck, especially during certain movements.

Corner of the Mouth: Lift and rejuvenate to create a more cheerful expression. 

Jawline Slimming: Achieve a more defined and sculpted jawline.

Gummy Smile Correction: Lower the upper lip to reduce the appearance of a ‘gummy’ smile.

But wait, there’s more! Botox isn’t just for cosmetic purposes. Our injectors also use it to alleviate various medical conditions, including painful muscle spasms, TMJ, excessive sweating, and chronic migraines.

So whether you’re seeking aesthetic enhancements or relief from discomfort, Botox could be the solution you’ve been looking for.

When Should I Start?

At MODA, we recommend considering regular Botox treatments as soon as facial lines become noticeable even at rest. Starting early not only addresses current lines but also plays a proactive role in preventing the formation of deeper wrinkles caused by the repetitive movement of facial muscles. By staying ahead of the game, you can maintain a youthful appearance for longer, embracing the journey of aging with grace and confidence.

How Long Does Botox Last?

Typically, the effects of Botox injections last for around 3-4 months. However, as your facial muscles gradually return to their normal activity, you may notice your lines and wrinkles becoming more pronounced once again.

But fear not! At MODA Medical Aesthetics, we’ve got you covered. We recommend scheduling a follow-up procedure when you begin to notice these changes. In fact, we typically advise our clients to opt for approximately 3 treatments a year to maintain optimal results.

The beauty of repeated Botox injections lies in their ability to continually improve the appearance of forehead lines, frown lines, and other pesky wrinkles, helping you combat the natural aging process with confidence and grace.

What to Expect After Botox Treatment?

No Recovery Time: Following neuromodulator injections like Botox, there’s usually no downtime required. You can go about your day as usual!

Temporary Bumps: It’s common to notice small bumps at the injection sites, which typically disappear within 20-30 minutes after treatment.

Possibility of Bruising: While not always the case, bruising may occur at the injection sites. This is normal and should subside over time.

Avoiding Certain Activities: To optimize your results, it’s best to refrain from lying down, rubbing, or applying pressure to the treated areas for 4-5 hours.

By following these post-treatment guidelines, you can ensure a smooth and successful Botox experience, allowing you to enjoy your refreshed appearance.
