Although neuromodulators and fillers are often used interchangeably when discussing injectable treatment options, they are actually quite different. Dermal fillers contain active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, while neuromodulators feature trace amounts of the botulinum toxin. As the name suggests, fillers fill in areas, adding support and smoothing out wrinkles from the inside out. Neuromodulators target muscles, reducing the appearance of lines by relaxing the muscles that form them.
Both neuromodulators and dermal fillers are effective when used as stand-alone treatments, but they can offer even more dramatic results when they are combined. Since the two products work on different areas of the face, you can undergo a Botox treatment on the forehead and a dermal filler in the nasolabial folds together to address both aging symptoms at the same time. Dr. Brunner will carefully assess your specific concerns to create a treatment plan customized to your precise needs and desired outcome.
Injectable treatments are appropriate for both men and women, and are considered safe on nearly any skin type and tone. For more information about our Princeton medical spa’s non-surgical enhancement procedures
