Neuromodulator Therapies work by minimizing or stopping facial muscles from contracting

As we age, dynamic wrinkles form in our faces. Dynamic wrinkles include those lines across the forehead (horizontal rhytids), around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows (glabella). A neuromodulator is a medically derived subunit of botulinum toxin-A.  Once injected it weakens muscles in the face. This decreases the tension that muscles place on the skin, allowing the wrinkles to flatten out.

Neuromodulators are also known as Botulinum-A. The benefits of Botulinum-A include:

  • They are FDA-approved to temporarily smooth out or eliminate moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and wrinkles in adults. The FDA approved Botulinum-A as an anti-aging agent to be injected every 3 to 4 months.
  • They are extremely safe and consist of a quick 10-minute treatment with no downtime. Results will be noticed within a few days for moderate to severe lines and wrinkles.
  • They deliver either a subtle or more intense results to address your needs. You may choose to minimize wrinkles, but still have some movement (natural look) or eliminate wrinkles and movement (for a super smooth or frozen look).

The first FDA neuromodulator approved for the treatment of wrinkles was Botox® since then the FDA recommends Botox® every 3 to 4 months as an anti-aging agent. It works in the body by relaxing facial muscles. The end result is an overall refreshed face appearance.


Livia will help you decide what neuromodulator is right for your desired outcome. NP Livia often suggests Dysport®. It is a potent neuromodulator that treats moderate to severe lines and wrinkles by reducing specific muscle activity with Livia’s excellent injection technique. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which means they can even develop in younger adults. With Dysport®, you can achieve your super smooth or frozen look. Dysport acts faster and may last longer than other neurotoxin-A products.


Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting lines and wrinkles. Neurotoxins, such as XEOMIN®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that diminishes muscle contraction causing wrinkles to become softer. Xeomin® can be injected to minimize wrinkles leaving your face moving naturally. In other words, no frozen look, just natural-looking results.

Chemical Brow Lift

Livia Manner utilizes a neuromodulator to perform a chemical brow lift such as Botox®, Xeomin®, or Dysport® to elevate the eyebrow. The end result is a refresh youthful look. The ideal candidate has low eyebrows or droopy eyelids.

Guess what? Livia also uses Botox® to treat Hyperhidrosis, a medical condition that causes excessive sweating (perspiration).
