Neuromodulators in Seattle, WA
North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics is dedicated to providing all of our patients in Seattle, Everett and surrounding areas with neuromodulators to smooth lines and wrinkles. Our medical spa offers neuromodulators in the form of Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®.
Neuromodulators are substances that modify the way nerves communicate with muscles. Neuromodulators work specifically by blocking communication from the nerves to the muscles, so the muscles do not move or contract in response. Previously used for medical reasons, such as eye twitches, cosmetic professionals began wondering how neuromodulators could work in aesthetics.
After exploring the concept, dermatologists found that neuromodulators effectively relax the muscles around the eyes and can weaken the muscles around the face that can cause wrinkles when making facial expressions. Since then, neuromodulators have been used to treat signs of aging.
What Neuromodulators are Available at North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics?
- Botox® is the most common form of neuromodulators used today. It is especially effective at treating deep wrinkles and lines around the eyes.
- Dysport® is a little thinner in consistency than some other neuromodulators. Because of this, it can treat a larger treatment area, like the forehead, very effectively.
- Xeomin® is a great alternative to Botox® and Dysport®, especially for treating the “elevens,” or the lines between your eyebrows.
Our neuromodulator procedures are performed quickly and effectively at our office. During your appointment, our specialist will use a tiny needle to inject the neuromodulator solution just beneath your skin. There is no downtime required with this treatment, and results are immediate but will continue to develop for a couple weeks. Some minor swelling may occur, but usually our clients do not notice any negative side effects.
North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics has six state-of-the-art offices, conveniently located in Mill Creek, Everett, Anacortes, Smokey Point, Monroe, and South Everett. We also serve the Seattle area.
