Neuromodulators are treatments for wrinkles that have been caused by repeated muscle movement. The most commonly treated areas include: crow's feet, forehead, frown lines (glabella), the muscles that cause downward turning of the mouth (DAO) and lips.
Yes! Neuromodulators have been available for 20 years and have been used to treat many diseases. It has been proven to be very safe through extensive testing and research.
Neuromodulators work by simply relaxing the muscles underneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance.
Generally speaking, after the consultation the procedure only takes up to 15 minutes. Since there is no down time required, you can have this procedure during your lunch hour and nobody will know that you had it done!
It can take up to 2 weeks for the product to take full effect. Usually we ask patients to wait for the full 14 days to pass in order for them to see the full result!
No, the effects are not permanent. The results will last approximentaly 3-4 months on average but every individual is different. If you follow the directions given to you by your injector and book your first 3 appointments promptly every 3-4 months, you may eventually be able to increase the duration of the results and potentially decrease the amount of units required.
This medication stays local in the muscles that are injected. After the injections, it is simply metabolized and broken down into natural by-products.
Youthful skin is smooth and elastic because it contains large amounts of hyaluronic acid. As we age the amount of HA in the skin gradually diminishes. As a result, the skin becomes dry, thin and aged. The filler products, which are used at Platinum Cosmetics, are a long lasting but not permanent synthetic form of hyaluronic acid. The gel mimics the naturally occurring substance by adding volume to the skin. When fillers are injected under the surface of the skin the gel adds volume and smooths facial lines and folds.
Different fillers are used for specific areas of the face. For instance, the product that will be best suited to improve the cheeks is not quite the same as others that are used for more superficial lines or lips. Treatment with HA fillers typically takes 15-45 minutes following the consultation depending on the area being treated and the number of syringes being used.
A small amount is injected directly into the skin to add volume and restore hydration. HA is naturally integrated into the tissue and allows for the free passage of important nutritive elements like oxygen and hormones. The product is also hydrophilic which means it binds water and adds to the filling effect.
The filler dissolves naturally within time and without touch ups will eventually completely disappear from the body. How long HA fillers last depends on many different factors including: the product used, the structure of the skin, lifestyle, age and metabolism. However, for the majority, 50-80% remains after 6 months.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are a natural material, so they will dissolve with time. In the event that you feel uncertain about the desired result or there is an unexpected complication, there is a medication known as Hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve the filler immediately and is always on hand at Platinum Cosmetics.
No! Individuals with excess facial skin or individuals that desire major resurfacing of the skin cannot be corrected with fillers alone.
