At ReVive RX Med Spa in Kansas City, MO, we offer wrinkle removal treatments using some of the most popular neuromodulators, including Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin. These injectables use neurotoxins to relax the muscles responsible for lines and wrinkles so that you can achieve smoother skin. Botox can also double as pain-relieving options for patients suffering from teeth grinding, migraine pain, hyperhidrosis, and even TMJ.
Wrinkle Removal Treatments
Our wrinkle removal treatments use the most popular wrinkle relaxers to help patients feel more confident in their appearance. Regardless of the location or severity of your expression lines, we can meet with you during an initial consultation to discuss your areas of concern and then make treatment recommendations that will help you look and feel like a younger you.
How Neuromodulators Work
Neuromodulators combat aging by relaxing muscles responsible for the formation of expression lines. They target the source of expression lines, and repetitive muscular movements, to relax those muscles, resulting in much softer expressions.
The goal of neuromodulators is not to eliminate your ability to express but to soften your expression. The active ingredient is a neurotoxin, and following treatment, that ingredient will begin relaxing your muscles so that you can achieve smoother-looking skin.
What Are Neurotoxins?
Neurotoxins are the active ingredient in our wrinkle relaxers, and they work by relaxing facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, also known as expression lines. These purified proteins, also known as botulinum toxin A, block the communication between the muscles and the nerve signals.
After treatment with neurotoxins, when your brain tells the muscles to contract, instead of responding, they will maintain a relaxed state to help smooth the current lines and wrinkles and help prevent the formation of new ones.
Our Wrinkle Relaxers
Our wrinkle relaxers can correct some of the most common expression lines, including crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. If your anti-aging products aren’t helping you look and feel as young as you would like, it may be time to add one of these injectables to your treatment plan and target aging at its source.
Botox is the original neuromodulator and is a popular wrinkle relaxer among patients who want to target one or multiple areas of their face that have developed expression lines. It treats cosmetic concerns like lines and wrinkles and is also a pain-relieving treatment that can help lessen the symptoms of certain muscle-related disorders.
If you suffer from migraine pain, teeth grinding, or TMJ, we can use this injectable to relax the muscles contributing to that pain so you can experience relief. We can also use Botox to treat hyperhidrosis, which causes excessive sweating, typically from the armpits. If you’re looking to find pain relief from one or more of these conditions, we can develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.
Dysport is a cosmetic injectable designed to smooth frown lines. It’s an effective option for those with fine, moderate, or more severe lines between their eyebrows. Dysport can be combined with other treatments and is a safe and effective option for those with lines between the brows. This treatment is unique because it treats wrinkles without altering your ability to express yourself.
Jeuveau is another injectable specifically designed to smooth frown lines. Jeuveau is a prescription-only injectable that can help make you look younger and more well-rested by relaxing muscles around the eyebrows and in the forehead responsible for your light, medium, or deeper frown lines.
Xeomin is a unique treatment because, unlike other neuromodulators, it contains a highly purified formula without added proteins. Xeomin may be a good option for patients with allergies who need to choose one of the wrinkle relaxers that’s free of added proteins.
What To Expect From the Treatment Process
Regardless of which wrinkle relaxer you choose to address your areas of concern, you can expect similar treatment. The treatment starts with preparing and sanitizing the injection area. Upon request, we can administer a topical numbing solution to the skin if necessary. All of these injectables have thin, fine needles, and injections are quick, precise, and take less than ten minutes to complete.
We can address multiple areas during one visit so that you can reach your goals without having to schedule multiple appointments. You can resume your day and even return to work as soon as it’s over.
When To Expect Results
Botox, Jeuvea, Dysport, and Xeomin all take a few days to relax the muscles. Regardless of which injectable you choose to target your expression lines, you can expect to see improvements in those lines within two to seven days of your appointment.
Our injector will give you details about when to expect results during your treatment. Once you begin noticing improvements in the appearance of your wrinkles, the product will continue to work to relax the muscles, and you’ll notice the best results 30 days post-treatment.
Scheduling Follow-Up Treatments
These neuromodulators all deliver long-lasting results, yet the results are only temporary. To maintain a wrinkle-free expression, you must schedule regular follow-up treatments. How often you schedule your treatments is determined by the product and the rate at which your body metabolizes it. Typically, results last anywhere from three to six months, but more often, follow-up treatments are necessary every three to four months.

Expression lines can become a thing of the past thanks to our effective lineup of wrinkle removal treatments. Post-treatment, you can enjoy all the benefits that come from these injectables and, with regular treatments, can enjoy smooth skin year-round.
