Combining Neuromodulators with Aesthetic Treatments

Posted on: October 29th, 2015 by California Skin Institute

Neuromodulators, like Botox and Dysport, can create a dramatic improvement in appearance, when administered properly.* California Skin Institute providers can effectively use these treatments to relax the muscles responsible for wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet.* However, many patients are surprised to learn that neuromodulator injections can be combined with aesthetic treatments for improved outcomes.* In fact, the expert providers at California Skin Institute have helped thousands of patients effectively combine Botox injections with aesthetic treatments like microdermabrasion, glycolic acid peels, face masks, and much more.*

The Value of Combining Neuromodulators with other Treatments

On their own, Botox and other neuromodulators are highly effective treatments for certain types of wrinkles.* However, it’s important to keep in mind that although neuromodulators address the underlying cause of the wrinkle by relaxing certain muscles, they don’t actually improve the texture of the skin.* For example, these injections do not remove old and damaged skin cells on the surface, they don’t address hyperpigmentation or dull skin, and they don’t remove acne scars.*

Therefore, many California Skin Institute patients choose to combine their Botox treatment with aesthetic procedures, for an enhanced effect.* This gives a compounded improvement in appearance, because we’re not just reducing the appearance of the wrinkles, but helping the skin achieve a radiant glow through exfoliation, cleansing and nourishment.*

How Aesthetic Treatments can Help

To help our patients improve skin texture and reduce hyperpigmentation issues, the expert Aestheticians at California Skin Institute can use a variety of techniques.* Of course, the best choice in your situation will be determined by your unique needs and skin care goals.* Here are just some of the popular aesthetic treatments that our patients often combine with Botox injections.*

  • Exfoliation: The skin can be exfoliated with a number of techniques, including microdermabrasion and specialty face masks.* This helps remove dead and damaged cells that give the skin a dull, blotchy appearance.* In addition to in-office procedures, our Aestheticians can also provide you with expert advice for at-home exfoliation, to maintain improvements longer.*
  • Light Chemical Peels: Chemical peels can go a long way in improving skin texture and reducing hyperpigmentation.* For example, a glycolic acid peel helps remove damaged skin cells from the surface, which further reduces the appearance of wrinkles.* Because of its cleansing abilities, a glycolic acid peel can also improve the appearance of acne scars and even minimize future breakouts.*
  • Microdermabrasion: Our expert Aestheticians can use a number of microdermabrasion techniques to remove dead skin cells and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation.* California Skin Institute patients often opt for microdermabrasion with DermaSweep, a device that uses micro-bristles instead of crystals.* This technology can even be used to infuse the skin with specialty serums, for deeper penetration by the active ingredients.*
  • Face Masks: An expertly-applied face mask can be custom-tailored to your unique needs.* Whether your skin needs extra moisture, nourishment with antioxidants and vitamins, or exfoliation; the right mask can make a big difference.* Our expert Aestheticians will take the time to understand your skin care concerns, and will help you select the best face mask treatment to complement the effects of your Botox procedure.*
