A guide to products that make expression lines disappear!

At The Nest Day Spa & Aesthetic Center in Russell, Kentucky, we have a powerful category of treatments to help you “rest and find joy” by restoring your natural, beautiful best: neurotoxins. Also known as neuromodulators, these procedures are designed to treat lines created by years of cumulative expression-making, such as frowning. These expression lines could not be made without muscle contractions. 

Over time, facial muscles may not relax as they did in your youth. Young, smooth skin makes way for furrows between and around the eyes in aging skin. These surface changes are also brought on by changes you can’t see. Your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, elastin, collagen, and other beneficial substances. As you age, these substances so vital to skin moisture, flexibility, and plumpness are in shorter supply. 

Neuromodulators are formulated with special substances injected into the specific muscles responsible for the contractions and expression lines mentioned above. These substances or proteins disrupt the messages sent from the nerves to the muscles, telling them to contract. A muscle that does not contract also does not pull or stretch the skin. So, your skin doesn’t have a chance to “create a wrinkle.” 

At The Nest Day Spa & Aesthetic Center, we have a variety of such neurotoxin treatments to choose from and note that they are all safe (despite having the word “toxin” in them). In fact, they have been clinically proven to effectively and safely soften lines and wrinkles in the upper portion of the face following years of research and development. Here, we highlight our four wrinkle-smoothing powerhouses:

  • Botox® Cosmetic – The first treatment of its kind, Botox® has been used to treat frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet since the early 2000s. When injected by one of our qualified professionals, you can have confidence that your results will look natural. You look like you, only more “rested.” Your face will not look “frozen” due to our precise injection techniques. It takes dozens of muscles to make a single expression. So you can still express yourself with your face naturally and confidently.
  • Dysport® –– A single injection may be made into each of five specific points between and above the eyebrows to soften frown lines. Dysport® is preventative, helping to train the muscles to relax; it can be completed in just minutes, lasts up to six months, and gets immediate results. 
  • Xeomin® — One of the newer neuromodulators on the block, Xeomin® is made with a unique process that creates a highly purified protein or active ingredient to block muscle activity. There are no additives introduced when engineering this product. So, it may be appropriate for individuals concerned about potential sensitivities or adverse reactions. 
  • Jeuveau® — The newest neuromodulator, Jeuveau® differs from the other options listed here because it is manufactured in a plant that only makes this particular product. It also goes through a long purification process to ensure the highest-quality and safest treatment possible.
