Botox | Dysport

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.

The Treatment

Our physicians will begin by identifying the treatment zones, including areas where persistent wrinkles exist on the forehead, around the eyes (crows feet), between the brows, or at the edges of the mouth.

A small needle is then used to inject Botox/Dysport into specific muscles located within the treatment zones. There is only minor discomfort during the injection, but you may notice small red bumps that will diminish in 20-30 minutes.

The procedure has no associated down time, other than avoiding strenuous exercise and excessive heat until the following day.

The End Result

Depending whether you’ve been treated with Botox or Dysport, you may begin to see results in 2 to 5 days, and it generally takes 7 to 14 days to take full effect. The muscle movement in the areas of treatment will be restricted which is what creates the wrinkle smoothing effect.

Whether you were treated for forehead wrinkles, crows feet, frown lines, or the corners of your mouth, for the next 3-4 months you can relax and bask in your new-found self-confidence and youthful look.

Around 3 months after your treatment, the effects will slowly begin to wear off, and you will be due for re-treatment. Many factors, but most importantly dose of treatment, affect treatment duration, however 3-4 months is average. Creating and staying on a consistent treatment schedule will help to maintain your more rested and youthful appearance.




The procedure is well tolerated. There will be a minor stinging sensation during the injection and a little redness and swelling that goes away fairly quickly.

Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved products that relax the facial muscles in order to help soften the wrinkles between your brows, forehead, and the crow’s feet around the eyes.

Your Botox | Dysport procedure will start with an in-depth consultation to discuss your goals, concerns, and medical history, and assess your facial anatomy. Actual treatment time depends on the number of treatment areas desired, but is typically 10-30 minutes.
