Neuromodulators: Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau

Wrinkles have a broad range of causes, but one particular culprit is muscle contraction. Your facial muscles contract whenever you speak, eat or make expressions. While these contractions are a normal part of life, they can lead to lines and wrinkles that can’t be corrected with topical medication or dermal fillers alone.

Neuromodulators Commonly Treat: 

  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows 
  • Horizontal forehead lines 
  • Crow’s feet 
  • Frown lines
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Neck bands
  • Chin depressions
  • An overly gummy smile
  • Bunny lines on the nose
  • Future wrinkles

How Neuromodulators Work

Neuromodulators work blocking the signal from the nerve cell that is instructing the muscles to contract. If the muscle isn’t “told” to contract, it cannot make a full wrinkle.

You will still be able to make expressions, they just won’t be as strong as normal — and your lines and wrinkles will be much less visible. 

Addressing Your Aesthetic Concerns Holistically

Dr. Ramirez Gavidia’s philosophy for aesthetic procedures revolves around holistic service. This means that he artistically combines procedures to achieve a consistent, comprehensive result. For example, he will never simply perform liposuction in one area. Instead, he will address the whole body. He will never only focus on one area of the face when performing facial contouring. Rather, he will create a beautiful balance by addressing multiple areas. in this way, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia and his team at RG Plastic Surgery deliver a more complete and holistic rejuvenation.

FDA-approved for cosmetic use since 2002, Botox is by far the most well-known neuromodulator. It has an excellent track record and is very effective and popular. Botox is ideal for addressing forehead lines, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet. Results are usually visible within 10-14 days following treatment and last 3-6 months.


Dysport is very similar to Botox, but it has different proteins attached to its active molecules. The Dysport formula is thinner than that of Botox, which makes it spread more easily — and therefore achieves results faster. Dysport is also especially effective for horizontal lines in the forehead. Results are visible within 2-3 days and can last 4-6 months.


Jeuveau is still a newer neuromodulator, making its official debut in 2019. Clinically developed only for cosmetic use only, Jeuveau is dedicated exclusively to aesthetics and is made with a state-of-the-art manufacturing process called Hi-Pure™ technology that makes it purer and extremely safe. Peak results with Jeuveau are apparent in 7-10 days, and results can last 5-6 months.

“The Absolute Best. Period. And here’s why. I moved to Nashville five years ago and struggled to find a Botox provider that gave me the same results that I had in Chicago. I tried at least four different places in the Nashville area, and none of them gave me ‘decent’ results. Each place simply injected me with the Botox without really getting to know me, and they all tried to talk me into fillers. I made an appointment at RG Plastic Surgery. Upon arrival, I filled out a detailed questionnaire and was then escorted into a photo room for some pictures. This had never happened to me anywhere before. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia came in and did a presentation of possibilities for my care, complete with the pictures his staff had just taken. He spent about half an hour with me educating me on my skin, my muscle and bone structure, Botox, fillers, and more. NO ONE HAD EVER DONE THIS. I had been getting Botox for YEARS and not once did a provider create a care plan for me. I had always gotten 70 units of Botox, and he recommended much less — 45 units. I was a bit wary, but had just learned about placement from him. WOW...he was right!  The way he took the time to learn MY face and then inject EXACTLY where I needed it was incredible. I wasn’t just some lady looking for Botox. Every time I visit, they make me feel like I am their only client and they take the time to learn what is important to me and my perception of how I look. I’ve been going there for about two years now. They just showed me the picture they took on the first visit and placed it side-by-side to my current picture. I was shocked. Listening to their advice on a skincare regime, taking advantage of their VIP Club, and having a true EXPERT as my provider has changed not only how I look, but how I feel on the inside. RG Plastic Surgery is the ONLY choice.” — Lisa R.
