Neuromodulators and other similar substances work by blocking signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. When injected into a muscle, they help it to relax. Although commonly used in the aesthetic field to reduce facial wrinkles, these substances can also be used for medical and therapeutic purposes. At Sorora, we use them to treat a variety of conditions, including hyperhidrosis (excess sweating), migraines (which may sometimes be covered by MSP or third-party insurance), bruxism (teeth grinding), and TMJ problems. By using these substances for therapeutic purposes, we can help alleviate discomfort and improve our patients’ quality of life.

BEFORE the treatment

  • Try to avoid things that will thin your blood for a couple of days (these lead to increased bruising):

    • Alcohol
    • Anti-inflammatory medications (Tylenol is okay for pain but avoid Ibuprofen, Aleve, Advil, Midol, etc. (these are non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) and will thin your blood and lead to more bruising).
    • Garlic and garlic-based natural supplements.

DURING the treatment

  • Sit back, relax and remember to tell us if there is any way we can make the procedure more comfortable (vibration, ice… and mini breaks if needed).

AFTER the treatment

  • If you have received a neuromodulator injection, it is important to follow certain guidelines to ensure optimal results. For instance, if you have been advised by your doctor to skip a gym day, it is recommended that you wait 24 hours to exercise after your injection. This is because exercise increases blood flow and blood pressure, which could cause irritation to the injection areas and potentially cause the neuromodulator to migrate to an unintended area. Additionally, you should avoid lying down for 4 hours after the injection to prevent product migration. It’s important to note that the onset of action may vary depending on your medical condition. Furthermore, the duration of therapeutic neuromodulator injections is typically longer than that of aesthetic injections, though this may vary depending on the specific neuromodulator used. By following these guidelines and consulting with our doctor, you can ensure the best possible outcome from your neuromodulator treatment.
