Many women and men can experience a flawless complexion without surgery. Achieving your ideal skin is as simple as a short, minimally invasive office procedure. Neuromodulator injections help soften dynamic and static wrinkles. Dr. Snyman has years of experience treating patients with neuromodulators. With her experience you will achieve a soft, natural effect.

What are Neuromodulators?

Neuromodulators, such as BOTOX Cosmetic®, Xeomin® and Dysport®, are purified proteins that work by blocking nerve impulses, resulting in the relaxation of over active muscles. Neuromodulators are quick, safe and highly effective. They are the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in North America.

How do they work?

Neuromodulators soften some of the facial wrinkles (rhytids) that are caused by repetitive muscle motion, such as frowning and squinting. They work by blocking impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that cause these wrinkles, so that these muscles do not contract. Injecting a very small amount of a neuromodulator such as BOTOX Cosmetic®, Xeomin® or Dysport® can gently relax those muscles to smooth away frown lines, crow’s feet, mouth and forehead wrinkles.

What can I expect after treatment?

Depending on the Neuromodulators used, onset can vary between 2  to 10 days. Effects can last between 3 and 4 months and they may last longer after several treatments.


Neuromodulators have been used safely by millions of people for over twenty years. The treatment is considered very low-risk. Side effects are rare, very minimal, and never permanent. Temporary side effects are possible and may include bruising and discomfort at the site of the injection. A very tiny needle is used to help minimize these effects. Eyebrow or eyelid droop has been recorded in less than 1 percent of patients receiving neuromodulators. This typically lasts 2-4 weeks and is very mild.

What are the benefits of treatment with Neuromodulators?

  • Safe
  • No downtime
  • Short appointment
  • Creates a natural effect when done by a skilled injector
  • Lasts 3-4 months; possibly longer with repeated treatments
