What are Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators are a non-surgical way to help fight wrinkles and smooth skin. These wrinkle relaxing injections contain the botulinum toxin. The injection is placed right under the muscle allowing it to relax and is what gives the skin a smooth and youthful appearance. Revolution Aesthetics and Wellness offers Dysport and Xeomin to patients in The Woodlands, Magnolia and surrounding area. In addition to a healthy glow, neuromodulators are used to help treat TMJ, hyperhidrosis and migraines.
Common Neuromodulator Placement
As we age, fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear on and around the forehead. Neuromodulators are commonly placed between the eyebrows, also known as the “11” lines or glabella, the vertical lines in the forehead and around the eye where crow’s feet form. It is important to speak with your injector about the results you would like to see since they are dependent on placement.

The benefit of neuromodulators is there is no recovery time. However, there are precautions that should be taken to maintain desired results.
- Keep your head up and avoid laying down the first 4-6 hours. It would be best if you were extra cautious the first few hours to prevent unwanted complications and negative side effects.
- Avoid sleeping on your face the first night. You want to make sure the product stays in the desired area.
Do not rub or massage the treated area. We get it, the muscles may feel uncomfortable after your injections. Rubbing can cause increased stress in those areas.
- Avoid alcohol for 24 hours. Alcohol thins the blood and can lead to bruising.
- Avoid strenuous activities for 24-48 hours. This will help prevent your blood pressure from rising and minimize bruising risk.
Xeomin or Dysport
This is a common question here at Revolution Aesthetics & Wellness. Xeomin and Dysport are both phenomenal products and usually it comes down to personal preference. However, there are a few main differences.
Xeomin was created to be “cleaner” than its competitors because it has removed the proteins from the injection. The protein load in other products may be associated with patients not seeing results over long term use.
Dysport hit the market in 2009 and has been approved in 69 countries. Unlike its competitors Dysport affects a larger treatment area. Results tend to show in 2-3 days and seems to work stronger.
