There are two ways you can enhance your beauty without surgery: neuromodulators and facial fillers. What are the differences between these two injectables ?
A neuromodulator is a biological substance that inhibits the nerve from stimulating a particular muscle. By doing so, the muscles relax and are not tense. This in turn, decreases the visibility of wrinkles and diminishes lines that can be etched prominently on target areas. The effect on average, lasts 3 to 4 months, before the muscle regains normal reactivity.
Facial fillers are mainly composed of hyaluronic acid which is a normal part of our skin composition. With age, hyaluronic acid decreases and so affected areas lose support, giving way to lines or creases, or loose skin. When injected, facial fillers can last 8-12 months but does not go away completely.
There are many brands of fillers and neuromodulators in the current market today. At Aura Aesthetics, we choose a filler with a viscosity (consistency) that facilitates natural movement. We use a naked protein neuromodulator, Xeomin, so we do not expose your system repeatedly to other proteins that may affect the neuromodulators function by eventually developing some form of resistance. Results vary per individual as there are some non-responders to treatment with all neuromodulators- Botox, Dysport, Jeauveau, and Xeomin. At Aura Aesthetics, we prepare our neuromodulator as recommended so that we deliver the correct concentration (dose) recommended.
