We are experts on the use of neuromodulators(BOTOX®/Xeomin/Dysport). We have been using neuromodulators for 8+ years and have taught many new physicians on the technique of proper injection.

Neuromodulators (BOTOX®/Xeomin/Dysport) are prescription medicines that are injected into muscles and are used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), forehead, around eyes (crow’s feet), and mouth. Injection of these medicines into small muscles temporarily paralyzes those muscles, thereby improving the appearance of wrinkles. This paralysis is temporary, and re-injection is generally necessary within 3 to 4 months to maintain benefit. This treatment is incredibly effective at reducing the prominence of dynamic skin lines.

Instructions after treatment:
Treat any mild discomfort with Tylenol, and expect temporary swelling. Do not massage the treated areas because it may move the BOTOX®/Xeomin/Dysport around and create a different effect. It is generally recommended to remain upright for four hours after injections and avoid aerobic activity for a few hours.
