Neuromodulators: DR.Anita

Rejuvenate your skin and reclaim your youth through minimally invasive injectable treatments

Neuromodulators: Botox, Dysport and Xeomin and Daxxyfy

As we age, we begin to form fine lines and wrinkles. Most patients come to Dr. Anita with wrinkles and fine lines that have appeared on their forehead, eyes neck, and areas around the lips, chin and mouth. These imperfections are due to natural aging and repeated muscle movement. There are multiple ways to treat wrinkles and fine lines, but often this issue is addressed by injecting a prescription medicine of botulin toxin. Brand names such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are part of a class of chemicals called neurotoxin or neuromodulators These injectables work by blocking the nerve receptors that are on muscles so that the nerve no longer communicates to the muscle thereby decreasing movement and relaxing the underlying muscle. This causes a softening of existing lines formed by dynamic movements as well as serving to prevent the formation of lines formed by repetitive actions such as frowning.

Many patients come to Dr. Anita Medical Aesthetics for frown lines and horizontal lines of the forehead but neuromodulators treat many conditions, including pebbled chin, crow’s feet, neck bands, bunny nose, vertical lips lines,TMJ, Widened jawlines, gummy smiles are commonly done as well. Also face slimming for bruxism or teeth grinding can help save your teeth and return the natural triangle of youth shape to the face. (PHOTOS) Underarm sweating or hyperhidrosis, and migraine sufferers are both FDA approved conditions for treatment with neuromodulators.

Why choose Dr. Anita for Neurotoxins

Dr. Anita uses the golden ratio and her artistic eyes to determine facial balance and to make sure that the effects enhance natural beauty not detract from the beauty in each individual.  Dr. Anita has over 20 years of cosmetic experience using neurotoxins and is often asks to solve issues related to this field.  She believes each patient has at least one signature beauty area and she works with you to enhance this area to its max since any problem in this most important area serves to have a more serious impact on appearance.

There are three brands of neuromodulators which are very similar in action, but one may be more effective in some individuals than others. Therefore, we recommend that if one of these agents seems to have lost efficacy, one of the other brands with a slightly different chemical structure be used. There is evidence that up to 10% of persons are resistant to some form of Botulism toxin purified protein and Dr. Anita specializes in helping find solutions if you have had issues with the effectiveness and longevity of any neuromodulators.

Generally Dysport has been shown to last approximately 1 month longer and to look more natural in several studies and in our experience. The ethical use of units is very important as a patient cannot know if they are getting what they pay for. Many times Dr.Anita sees patients that have only 2 months duration which is easily remedied when using the correct units and correct depth of injection

Daxxify is the newest botox type modulator. It is the first and only peptide-powered FDA approved longer lasting neuromodulator( 9 month or more) The cost is higher but for some people this is offset by duration and by what we have found a superior brow lift to other neurotoxins.

Results are generally noticed after 4 to 10 days. Dr. Anita recommends all patients return for a follow up visits at around 2 weeks post injection in order to assess appearance and ensure patients are happy with a natural result.

How Long does it take to work and does it Hurt?

The injection is usually quick with minimal discomfort. However, we know everyone has a different pain threshold and we can provide topical anesthesia 30 minutes prior to treatment if so desired.

In general, neurotoxins last 3 to 6 months with an average of 4 months. Over time, the local effects will subside gradual and retreatment is necessary. Wrinkle prevention is also a common reason for having this procedure.  

Is there downtime?

No generally there is no bruising and any swelling lasts only 5 minutes.

MYTHS TO DEBUNK about Neurotoxins

Botox etc are poisonous.


These substances are derived from a protein found in the bacteria and not bacteria is injected.

Botox etc freezes your face and makes you look unnatural.


If you go to an experienced physician injector who understand how the face ages, no one will know. One story: Several years ago a famous personality in an interview was discussing bad botox and how she would never get it. However,She has been getting it for years with Dr. Anita and we all got a real kick out of the performance.
