What are Neuromodulator Injections?
A neuromodulator is an injection that relaxes the facial muscles responsible for the formation of wrinkles. Neuromodulator injections are commercially known as the following:
These products are similar as they contain the same ingredient, botulinum toxin type A and they provide temporary results for men and women looking for subtle facial refreshment with no recovery time.
Quick, simple treatments with Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox by Dr. Flaharty and the professionals at Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa can minimize Father Time’s effects and help you feel great about your skin. Our practice serves Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, Naples and surrounding areas.
How Do Botulinum Toxin Injections Work?
A smile, a laugh, a frown, or a wince can all convey so much without a single word. We all have dozens of facial muscles that work together to animate our faces every day. But over time, the repetitive movements of these muscles can cause lines and wrinkles to develop, often aging us before we feel ready. FDA-approved Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin work by selectively weakening these facial muscles, relaxing wrinkles and smoothing the overlying skin. The result is a youthful-looking, refreshed appearance that respects your own unique features.

BOTOX is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the United States. When injected, it paralyzes muscles and is typically used on permanent furrows and deep wrinkles. Botox is not only used for cosmetic purposes but several medical problems. This can include excessive sweating, overactive bladder, neck spasms, crossed eyes, chronic back pain, jaw pain, and migraines.
Dysport is similar to Botox as it is used for lessening and eliminating deep wrinkles, such as frown lines. Both are injected into the muscle and weaken it to the point that it cannot contract. The primary difference between Botox and Dysport is that Dysport has been shown to last longer, spread farther, and take effect more quickly.
Xeomin is a prescription medication commonly used to treat intramuscular conditions. When injected, Xeomin does not stop the muscle from moving entirely but modifies the contractions. It is commonly used to treat conditions such as blepharospasm. The results typically appear after a week and can last up to 12 weeks.

Results of Botulinum Toxin Injections
The results of a Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin treatment typically take about 1 week to develop, and they last between 3 and 4 months. Dr. Flaharty recommends regular treatments for long-term maintenance. Over time, you may be able to use less of the product as your lines begin to soften and smooth.

Voluma was used on this woman in the temple and midface area to help decrease volume. Juvederm was used on the lips, marionette lines and jawline to fill in some deeper wrinkles. Botox was also used on the forehead, inbetween the eyebrows, around the eyes on the crows feet and in the chin to prevent any more wrinkling to occur.

Can I Pair Injections with Other Treatments?
Although Xeomin, Dysport, and Botox can subtly rejuvenate a face on their own, these products also make popular additions to other procedures, such as endoscopic brow lift surgery or a liquid face lift. Dr. Flaharty’s comprehensive approach ensures a beautiful overall result that helps you look as young as you feel.
Additionally, if you’re looking to improve skin tightness in other areas, such as the neck or jawline, you may want to consider INFINI, a treatment that will stimulate your body’s production of collagen in the deeper dermis layers.
