What are Neuromodulators (Botox/Dysport/Xeomin)?
Neuromodulators, commonly referred to as Botox or Dysport, are injectable medications that reduce and relax the movement of targeted muscles causing softening of fine lines and wrinkles. By reducing and reversing wrinkles and minimizing the formation of new lines, patients can experience a more youthful appearance within a matter of days.

Who is a candidate for neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators can be used to both reverse and prevent wrinkles associated with aging. It is a wonderful option for middle-aged patients who would like to look more youthful and radiant and is an ideal treatment to be used in combination with other skin care regimens for a more drastic result. For younger patients in their 20s and 30s, neuromodulators serve as a great preventative treatment to avoid the formation of wrinkles in the first place and stop the hands of time.
How long does it last?
Because neuromodulators are slowly metabolized by the body, they provide a temporary effect lasting 3-4 months for the majority of patients. Over time, when patients follow up on a consistent basis for maintenance treatments, the total amount of product required may potentially be reduced in the long term.
What does Botox and Dysport cost?
The cost of Botox and Dysport varies significantly according to a patient’s individualized treatment goals. Factors that contribute to the overall cost include number of treatment areas, the size of the area and the severity of the symptoms being treated.
