There are three main applications for neuromodulator injections:
- Wrinkle Treatment:
Neuromodulator injections can lessen the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which are those wrinkles or fine lines that are noticeable when the patient smiles, frowns or raises the brows. It can also be used to decrease the smile lines at the lateral corners of the eyes (Crow's Feet), the furrows between the brows (Glabellar wrinkles) which make people look serious, or the horizontal furrows on the foreheads. The results are smoother skin with less fine lines, and a younger and more relaxed look.
- Facial Contouring (Facial Slimming):
Neuromodulator injections can be used to soften the jawline, reduce the 'chin-dimples' and reduce certain types of lower eye bags.
- Hyperhidrosis (Underarm Sweating):
Neuromodulator injections can reduce underarm sweating.
