What Are Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators are injectable treatments derived from a purified form of botulinum toxin A. They temporarily block nerve signals to the muscles that enable habitual facial expressions, which allows the overlying skin to relax. Neuromodulators are FDA-approved to temporarily reduce moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the eyes, eyebrows, and forehead.
Dr. Bellamy offers the following neuromodulators:

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin
Neuromodulators smooth fine lines by preventing repetitive muscular movements. The results are a naturally refreshed, youthful-looking appearance. In 10 days to two weeks after your Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® treatment, you’ll notice the wrinkles beginning to soften; improvements continue for up to a month. With no downtime and minimal discomfort, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections only take a few minutes.
The latest FDA-approved neuromodulator, Daxxify™, temporarily reduces muscle activity in the treated areas. Daxxify™ is the first and only FDA-approved, peptide-powered injectable neuromodulator for treating moderate to severe frown lines.
When choosing a neuromodulator, result longevity is a critical factor. Typically, Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® remain in effect for three to five months; however, Daxxify™ lasts for six to nine months. With longer-lasting results, you will need fewer annual Daxxify™ appointments to maintain your refreshed, youthful appearance!
Botox Lip Flip
The non-surgical Botox® Lip Flip is a lip enhancement that produces plump, more defined lips. To achieve a flipped appearance, Dr. Bellamy injects a precise quantity of Botox® above the upper lip and the corners of the mouth. This innovative procedure doesn’t add volume. Instead, it relaxes the lip muscles and curls them outward, creating a fuller appearance.

Preparing for Your Neuromodulator Procedure

For at least 48 hours before and after your neuromodulator procedure, you shouldn’t smoke, vape, or use any tobacco products. Nicotine constricts blood vessels, slows healing, and increases the risk of complications like infection.
Typically, neuromodulator injections are brief and painless. Most patients report only minimal discomfort, like a slight pinch. Depending on the number of treatment areas, your entire appointment should only take 15 to 30 minutes.
Afterward, you are free to leave our office and immediately return to your typical daily activities, including going back to work. You may experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site; these effects typically resolve in a few hours to a few days.
After your neuromodulator treatment, it is crucial to thoroughly follow Dr. Bellamy’s instructions to ensure optimal results, including what not to do. Post-neuromodulator don’ts include:
