What Are Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators are FDA-approved purified derivatives of botulinum toxin, produced naturally by a bacterium. Botox and Dysport are the brands of neuromodulator that we use at Lumera. These substances are referred to as neuromodulators because they interfere with the neurotransmitters at the neuromuscular junction.
Simply put, these drugs temporarily relax the musculature surrounding the injection site by blocking the nerve signal. This has the effect of reducing fine lines and wrinkles, creating a smoother, more youthful look. You do not have to wait until you have wrinkles to start using these products, in fact, starting them before you have wrinkles can stop them from forming as you get older.
Neuromodulators can also be used to treat conditions such as migraines. TMJ disorders, and excessive sweating.
Is the procedure painful?
Generally no, it is relatively painless. There will be a minor stinging sensation during the injection and a little redness and swelling that goes away fairly quickly.

How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?
The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.
Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.
How does incontinence relate to age?
Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.
Why should I care about my bladder control problem?
People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
