Neuromodulators are medicines used in aesthetic medicine to temporarily relax the muscles that cause moderate to severe wrinkling. Most commonly they are used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles in adults. They are also used for a number of other medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), TMJ, migraines, and severe muscle spasms. The injectable contains a purified protein that relaxes the small muscles that cause excessive contraction leading to wrinkles and other conditions.

Cosmetic Injectables are great for eliminating those wrinkles.
Muscle relaxation is gradual, usually starting 24-48 hours after treatment. Most people report results at 3-5 days, however it can take a full 14 days in some cases.
Longevity is determined by metabolism and the dose administered. Neuromodulators last 2-5 months and gradually wear off.
Follow the 4 hour rule: avoid the following for 4 hours…laying down, massaging the area treated (no facials right after!), and avoid blood thinning medications or substances (excessive alcohol). Makeup can be applied right after to conceal any redness or potential bruising, but a light touch is necessary to not displace or move the neuromodulator to nearby muscles.
Once you start having the ability to contract the troublesome muscles again, it’s best to schedule your next session of injections. The second treatment will typically last longer if administered before your wrinkles return to their full original state. It is normal for the treatment to start softening after about 2-3 months. We recommend scheduling your appointments about 3 months apart.
If you are pregnant or nursing, have a neuromuscular disease, allergic to any of the ingredients, or you are taking certain antibiotics you should not have neurotoxin injections.
Side effects most commonly reported by patients include mild puffiness or bruising at the injection site (common), headache (13%), temporary eyelid droop (3%). Bruising risks can be minimized by avoiding aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Ibuprofen, Motrin, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, vitamin E, and high doses of fish oil for one week prior to injections.
“My treatment and overall experience at Cascade was exceptional !!! Amanda’s thorough attention to detail as she performed my injections was so much less painful and stripy than the first treatment I had received from a nice, but also very expensive doctor in Tigard last month !!!”

For a full list of the Dermal Fillers offered at Cascade please contact us to determine what will be best for you. If you have had fillers in the past and are product specific, please reach out to us via phone or our contact page. One of our injectors normally replies within 24 hours.
With a very delicate touch and careful precision, a few tiny injections are made with a small needle in the area you would like treated. Our Practitioners will develop a plan specifically for you that will be based on your preference and treatment goals. The injections are quick and typically not painful. However, for sensitive patients, a topical anesthetic may be used to gently numb the treatment area. The procedure itself takes no more than 15-20 minutes. Our goal is to make you look your best. It’s true.. you can have injections and still have a very natural look without the wrinkles!
