Neurotoxin, better known under brand names such as Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau®. Neurotoxin treatments are the most popular single cosmetic procedure in the U.S. and are primarily used to smooth the appearance of facial wrinkles that form as a result of repetitive facial movements like frowning, squinting, smiling, and other expressions we tend to make daily. This treatment works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles, causing them to relax. As a result, your expressions soften and the dynamic wrinkles are reduced!
Neurotoxins can be used to improve your appearance, reveal a more youthful look, and help you look better refreshed. The most commonly treated areas are those where muscle activity influences facial features, such as the following:
All of these products contain the same active ingredient in them: botulinum toxin type A, and are designed to address the same types of wrinkles and other cosmetic concerns. So how are they different? The main distinction lies in their formulation, which influences the dosage used, how much the product spreads, and how quickly a patient might see the results. All of these products are FDA approved and have been used safely and effectively for several years. Which of these products is best for you will depend on your unique anatomy, your goals, and your injectors recommendations.
Your injector will begin by consulting with you to determine the primary area of concern and best treatment options before starting your procedure. We’ll review your medical history to ensure you are a candidate for neurotoxin treatments. In order to track the progress of the targeted area, we’ll take photos of the area of treatment. Your expert injector will ask you to make various facial expressions to mark the muscles that need treatment. After we clean the treatment area, we will administer the neurotoxin. The procedure takes only a few seconds to complete, and is fairly painless.
