Conveniently located to serve Hawaii
If you want to look more refreshed and youthful, come to Healy Plastic Surgery for neuromodulators in Hawaii. Neuromodulators are injected to relax overcontracted facial muscles, allowing the skin to become wrinkle-free again.
What Are Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators like Botox are injectable products used to smooth away age lines on the face. They are commonly used to treat crow’s feet around the eyes, glabellar lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead wrinkles, and chin wrinkles. They can also be used to address bunny lines on the nose, lipstick lines around the lips, and vertical neck bands.
Neuromodulators serve as a muscle relaxer once injected into the target areas in small doses. Because of this, they cannot address facial lines caused by factors other than repeated muscle movement. This means they cannot resolve wrinkles due to excessive sagging skin or exposure to the sun.
The best time to start considering neuromodulators is before dynamic wrinkles and lines set in and become static wrinkles. Early intervention helps maintain smooth and wrinkle-free skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Neuromodulators?
If you have fine lines on your face, especially around the eyes or forehead area, you will likely be considered a good candidate for neuromodulators. This is an excellent option for patients who want to avoid surgical facial rejuvenation.
However, you may not be recommended for the treatment if you have pronounced facial asymmetry, an inflamed target site, or deep facial scars. You might be disqualified if you have droopy eyelids, extremely weak muscles in the target area, thick and oily skin, or wrinkles that do not become smooth by spreading the skin apart.
Dr. Healy is amazing at what he does… that is all I can say. My results are better than expected!

Your Neuromodulator Consultation
When you consult with Dr. Jeff Healy regarding neuromodulator injections, he will ask you about your expectations and goals. He will also perform a skin evaluation.
Dr. Healy will evaluate your medical history. This will include checking if you are taking any blood-thinning medications or herbal supplements. He will ask if you have previously tried neuromodulators, muscle relaxants, injectable antibiotics, cold medicine, or sleep medicine. Be prepared to discuss your allergies.
Next, Dr. Healy will tell you about the potential risks and results of the procedure. He will also give you post-treatment care directions.
The neuromodulator session only lasts around 10 minutes. A topical or local anesthetic may be administered before treatment to numb the area. During the treatment, a neuromodulator like Botox will be injected into the muscles, allowing them to relax.
The treatment is not surgical, so no downtime or recovery time is required. You can return to work or do regular activities right after the treatment.
You should avoid rubbing the treated areas to prevent the neuromodulators from migrating to another part of the face. Minor bruising, redness, or swelling may be present for a short time.
The time it takes for results to show depends on the number of units used, the location of the injection sites, and your unique aging process. Generally, results appear quickly.
Neuromodulators gradually wear off over time. Because of this, you will need to come in for maintenance treatments to preserve your results.
How Much Do Neuromodulators Cost?
The cost of neuromodulators varies based on the extent of the treatment your skin needs. The price of your treatment will depend on factors like the amount of product injected, along with the number of wrinkles being treated.
