What Are Neuromodulators?

Dynamic wrinkles are facial lines that result from repetitive muscle movements, such as smiling, frowning, or squinting. Over time, these repeated contractions cause the skin to crease and fold, leading to the formation of visible lines and wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are particularly prominent in areas of facial expression, such as the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows (frown lines).

Neuromodulators, such as BOTOX, Dysport, and DAXXIFY, are injectables designed to address dynamic wrinkles. By targeting the muscles responsible for these repetitive movements, neuromodulators temporarily relax them, preventing them from contracting and creating wrinkles. This results in a smoother, more youthful appearance, with lines and wrinkles softened or diminished. Neuromodulators offer a non-surgical solution to rejuvenate the face, providing natural-looking results that can last several months.

What Do Neuromodulators Treat?

Neuromodulators effectively target various cosmetic concerns, including forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. They can also treat bunny lines, gummy smiles, and platysmal bands. Beyond cosmetic enhancements, neuromodulators are also used to alleviate medical conditions like excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and even chronic migraines. Neuromodulators offer a comprehensive solution to enhance both appearance and well-being.

Benefits of Neuromodulators:

  • Non-Surgical: Neuromodulators offer a non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures, making them convenient for those seeking cosmetic enhancements without surgery.
  • Quick Treatment: In-office injections are typically quick, often taking less than 30 minutes to complete, allowing you to return to your daily activities promptly.
  • Minimal Discomfort: Discomfort during treatment is minimal, with most patients experiencing only a mild, temporary pinching sensation at the injection site.
  • Natural-Looking Results: Neuromodulators provide subtle yet noticeable improvements, preserving facial expressions while softening wrinkles and lines.
  • Long-Lasting Effects: The results can last for several months, with some patients enjoying the benefits of neuromodulators for up to 6 months before needing touch-ups.
  • Versatile: Beyond cosmetic applications, neuromodulators can also address medical concerns like excessive sweating and chronic migraines.

Patient Testimonials

Natalie was my injector and she was fabulous. Went in for a consult for Botox and was able to get it done same day. 🙂 I will definitely be going back in the future for not just Botox, but to see their esthetician as well!

- Tessa

Natalie, the P.A. at Marietta Plastic Surgery is amazing! I went to her for Botox and fillers, and I’m thrilled with the outcome. I drive all the way from Duluth, and it’s worth it! I also have been to see Tonya for a HydraFacial that was so wonderful and relaxing!! And the office staff couldn’t have been nicer. Really looking forward to my next treatments!

We Offer These Neuromodulators…


BOTOX is one of the most well-known and widely used neuromodulators. It contains botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily relaxes muscles by blocking nerve signals, effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Commonly treated areas include forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Results typically last around 3-4 months before follow-up treatments are needed.


Similar to BOTOX, Dysport also contains botulinum toxin type A and works by relaxing facial muscles to diminish wrinkles. It is particularly effective for larger treatment areas like the forehead because it diffuses better than other neurotoxins. Dysport may have a slightly faster onset of action compared to BOTOX, with results becoming noticeable within a few days. Like BOTOX, the final results typically last 3-4 months.


DAXXIFY is a newer neuromodulator known for its peptide-powered formulation. This unique composition allows for longer-lasting results, typically lasting 6 to 9 months. Ideal for individuals seeking fewer in-office treatments, DAXXIFY offers extended wrinkle-relaxing effects while still providing natural-looking results. It can target forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines, providing patients with a convenient solution for maintaining youthful-looking skin.
