NEUROMODULATOR TREATMENTS: BOTOX® AND DYSPORT®

What Are Neuromodulators?

Every face is unique. The human face naturally forms fine lines and wrinkles from the effects of aging, genetics, gravity, the sun, and lifestyle factors – leading individuals to seek treatment to prevent wrinkle formation and progression as well as to smooth existing lines. Dr. Kristy Hamilton is an elite facial-optimization expert renowned for her ability to artfully rejuvenate the face, nose, neck, and body both surgically and non-surgically. Her expertise attracts patients from around the world to exquisitely optimize, fine-tune and rejuvenate their appearance – and a large proportion of her practice is to also correct previous, unnatural-looking facial-optimization work performed elsewhere.

A key element of Dr. Kristy Hamilton’s Signature Non-Surgical Facial Optimization Treatment is using FDA-approved cosmetic neuromodulators (such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, both commonly referred to as ‘Botox’). Renowned for their ability to rejuvenate the human face, nose, neck, and body, both neuromodulators are local muscle relaxants adapted from the botulinum neuromodulator type-A. Dr. Hamilton strategically injects these neuromodulators into specific muscles to target dynamic wrinkles caused by muscular contractions (such as smiling and squinting) and to prevent lines from forming there in the first place – all without downtime. Both neuromodulators are similar in many ways; however, Dysport® is composed of a slightly smaller protein, which allows it to work more quickly. These neuromodulators are a game-changer in temporarily minimizing and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. From severe forehead lines and deep crow’s feet to profound creases between the brows, Dr. Hamilton uses her aesthetic eye to beautifully enhance and revitalize the look of her patients.

Every facial analysis Dr. Hamilton performs is unique. She blends this analysis with finesse and artistry to preserve and restore natural facial beauty and youthfulness with her innovative, customized, facial-optimization techniques. As a highly-trained, board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Hamilton employs her deep knowledge of the human anatomy to precisely and strategically inject neuromodulators into the muscles of the face, nose, neck, and body to relax targeted muscles to soften, smooth, and prevent lines. Moreover, Dr. Hamilton also creatively makes tiny micro-adjustments to facial features for a dramatically refreshed, youthful and natural-looking appearance. For example, she delicately improves eyebrow position non-surgically to make the brows align symmetrically together for harmony and balance. The effects are localized to the treated area, allowing for precise targeting and controlled results. The total overall outcome is stunning, where patients dynamically look and feel like the best, younger version of themselves – while still maintaining their natural facial movement, expression, and identity.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BOTOX® AND DYSPORT®  NEUROMODULATORS?

The placement of neuromodulators is an art form that creates harmony and balance, specifically tailored to the aesthetic goals of the patient. Dr. Hamilton’s Non-surgical Signature Facial Optimization Treatment is a sophisticated, comprehensive, advanced program which targets the face as an integrated whole – treating multiple areas at the same time – to temporarily relax the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles, softening their appearance. The bespoke treatment, which typically activates within 3-7 days with full effects visible in 1-2 weeks, powerfully optimizes and harmonizes the overall face – and produces finesse facial profile balancing that together create a vibrant, beautiful, rejuvenated appearance. (Patients also are provided the option of treating their facial features individually to meet their own particular aesthetic goals.) Neuromodulators usually last 3-4 months, depending upon a person’s individual metabolism.

Over time, and with consistent, periodic injections of neuromodulators, the individual’s fine lines and wrinkles will gradually become smoother as the muscles learn to relax. With innovation and intuition, Dr. Hamilton has developed a specialized set of customized, injectable aesthetic techniques to brighten and optimize the face, nose, neck, and body using BOTOX® and Dysport® for beautiful rejuvenation. The applications for using neuromodulators on the human face and body are varied and remarkable, as evidenced by the following myriad of benefits arising from using neuromodulators:

WHAT IS BABY BOTOX® / MICRO-BOTOX®?

Baby Botox (also called Micro-Botox) is a popular aesthetic technique where multiple, tiny micro-doses of a neuromodulator (such a BOTOX® and Dysport®) are precisely sprinkled across the face – in smaller amounts than used in traditional Botox treatments. Baby Botox prevents fine lines, smooths and softens existing lines, and refines skin quality, for a smoother, fresher, younger-looking complexion, while retaining natural expression and movement. Micro-Botox treatments attract many segments of the population, including younger individuals intent on preventing the future formation or progression of fine lines and wrinkles, people who have already formed lightly-etched lines and now desire anti-wrinkling treatment and preventative maintenance, and individuals of varying ages who desire more subtle results than that offered by traditional Botox. Baby Botox activates in 3-7 days with full effects visible in 1-2 weeks, and it lasts 3-4 months. Patients typically maintain their results with treatments 2-4 times annually, per their aesthetic goals. Baby Botox is a rising star in aesthetics today — an excellent way to create and maintain a smoother, fresher, more polished complexion, while still retaining very natural movement.

WHAT TREATMENTS CAN BE COMBINED WITH BOTOX® OR DYSPORT®?

To further optimize facial features and boost skin quality, injections of neuromodulators such as BOTOX® or Dysport® ⸺ can be combined with the use of Medical-Grade Skincare Products and other Non-surgical Procedures for harmony, proportion, symmetry, and overall profile balancing. For example, neuromodulator injections can be combined with injections of Dermal Fillers to define and sculpt the contour of the lips, nose, chin, jawline, cheeks, tear troughs, temples, nasolabial (smile) lines, mouth-to-chin marionette lines, the vertical lip lines above the upper lip, and the horizontal neck lines known as “Tech Neck”. Adding Surgical Procedures such as a surgical brow lift, upper and lower eyelid lift, facelift, necklift, or a nose-reshaping rhinoplasty — provide the gold standard in optimizing an individual’s facial appearance, vibrantly creating a stunning rejuvenation with beautifully-shaped, youthful-looking facial features and radiant, light-reflecting angles. Combining Botox treatments with other non-surgical procedures, a medical-grade skincare regimen, and surgical treatments subtly yet powerfully transforms the entire face – revealing a beautiful rejuvenation where patients look and feel their best self.

THE MANY WONDERS OF BOTOX® AND DYSPORT® NEUROMODULATORS:

The human face is a treasure trove of emotions and experiences, with every facial expression requiring muscle contractions which pull at the attached skin, creating fine lines and wrinkles. The many wonders of injecting neuromodulators into the human face and body – to effectively erase wrinkles, prevent new lines from forming, and smooth the appearance – can boost an individual’s confidence level and sense of well-being. In fact, multiple studies report showing that Botox injections can positively increase the mood of human beings after treatment. Dr. Hamilton deeply understands the art and science behind performing these transformative treatments to create a powerful solution to facial rejuvenation without the requirement for invasive surgical treatments.
