Overview of Neurotoxins in Aesthetics

Introduction to Toxins

Neurotoxins play a pivotal role in the field of aesthetics, offering a non-invasive solution to address facial wrinkles, fine lines, and overall anti-aging.  These products work by temporarily relaxing/paralyzing specific muscles, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance. While various neurotoxins exist, the most commonly used products in aesthetic procedures are Botox® (Onabotulinumtoxin Type A), Xeomin® (Incobotulinumtoxin A), Jeuveau® (Prabotulinumtoxin A-xvfs), and Dysport® (Abobotulinumtoxin A).

How do these products work?

These products inhibit the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. By blocking nerve signals to targeted muscles, the toxin temporarily relaxes them, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing further lines from forming.

Why Do we use these products in Aesthetics?

We use these products to treat Dynamic Wrinkles. Neurotoxins are particularly effective for treating dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Additionally, strategic injection of neurotoxins can lift and shape the eyebrows, providing a non-surgical alternative to a brow lift. Other possible benefits include jawline contouring, neck-line reduction, and skin tightening.

What is the Recovery for this treatment?

Neurotoxin injections are minimally invasive and typically performed in an office setting. The injections are quick, with minimal discomfort, and require no downtime. Results are visible within a few days, reaching their full effect within 1-2 weeks and lasting for several months.

Why do we LOVE this treatment?

Neurotoxins have revolutionized the field of aesthetic medicine, offering a safe and effective solution for reducing facial wrinkles and enhancing facial harmony. With little to no downtime, these products are the TOP treatments we service.
