Botox, Dysport and Xeomin Neuromodulators - Haven Beauty Lab - Gig Harbor, WA

About Neuromodulators

SMOOTH LINES & WRINKLES

Botox, Dyspory and Xeomin are neuromodulators that work beneath the skin to temporarily reduce the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.

A combination of factors can cause facial lines and wrinkles. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, the reduction of collagen or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines at rest.

We carry all FDA approved types of botulinum toxins (Botox®, Dysport ®, Xeomin®).  All three products are contain the same active ingredient, although each is processed and formulated slightly differently. All work to help your skin to look visibly smoother and give your face a youthful and rested appearance.

Botulinum toxin generally lasts 3 months, although this is not the case for all. Many factors will play into the duration of your botox. Most importantly “dose equals duration.”  The duration of botulinum toxin is in a bell curve and peaks around 8 weeks then gradually wears off.

TREATMENTS

Face:
Smooth out forehead wrinkles, the “elevens” between your brows, crows feet, under eyes, smile line and more.

Neck:
We can perform neck lifts and reduce the appearance of “tech neck” lines and laxity with strategic injections into the neck muscles that cause this.

Medical Conditions:
TMJ –
In addition to cosmetic uses, we also use botulinum toxin to reduce pain from TMJ disorders and also can thin the face by injecting the masseter muscles as well.
Migraines – for qualifying candidates
Hyperhidrosis – for qualifying candidates

Though we do not take insurance payment at this time, we do accept HRA/HAS and care credit for qualifying treatments.
