In just one simple session, this neuromodulator can relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and leave you with smoother, younger-looking skin. To learn more about this incredible treatment, offered here at Nurse Jayme Aesthetics in Andover, MN, read on.
Neuromodulators: What Exactly Is Botox?
Neuromodulators are substances that act on the nervous system to change nerve activity. In the case of this treatment, they block signals from nerves to muscles. When botulinum toxin, AKA Botox, is injected under the skin, it stops the nerves in the area from talking to the nearby muscles. Now, no matter how much the nerves tell the muscles to move as the face moves and emotes, they won't. The skin on top, as a result, stays smooth and youthful.
Botox has been one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market since its debut in 1989. It's FDA-approved and can be used repeatedly at the client's discretion. Incredibly, this treatment isn't just used to treat cosmetic concerns. It's also used to treat medical concerns that are caused by nerve-muscle communication, such as platysma muscle pain, hyperhidrosis, and TMJ. Botox treatment for muscle pain and excessive sweating works in the same way, blocking signals between nerves and muscles.

On the day of your session, which will take place right here in our Andover office, you'll be asked to come in with a clean face. We'll offer soothing options to make this process stress free, such as a stress ball. Then we will use very fine needles to inject the product into the muscles. Many patients report they cannot feel these injections. We will carefully follow along with the treatment plan and should be all done after roughly twenty minutes. You won't require any downtime afterward.
Dermaplaning involves using a sterile blade to carefully remove dead skin cells and vellus hair from the face. This treatment can leave the skin feeling softer and smoother, and can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It's a great option for those whose skin is dull and tired-looking. It typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. There is no downtime associated with dermaplaning, and most people can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin by applying a chemical solution to its surface. This causes the dead skin cells to peel off, revealing new skin underneath that is brighter, smoother, and less wrinkled than the old skin. Chemical peels can be done on the neck, face, or even hands. It treats concerns like hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and fine lines. Like dermaplaning, it can be an excellent treatment for those who want to stay away from needles.
