Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Daxxify™ are a group of neurotoxins, also sometimes referred to as wrinkle relaxers or neuromodulators. They are the perfect solutions to treat and prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and deep facial furrows. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. While traditionally neurotoxins have a reputation for being used only on the upper part of the face in areas like the forehead, glabella (11’s), and crow’s feet, in recent years, some of the very common off-label uses for neurotoxins include:
- Brow lift
- Slimming of the temples
- Slimming of the jawline
- Bunny lines (lines over the bridge of the nose)
- Gummy smile
- Tip of the nose (can create a subtle tip upwards)
- Smoker’s lines/vertical lip lines around the mouth
- Down turning smile
- Dimples in the chin
- Nefertiti neck lift along the jawline
- Horizontal lines along the neck
- Platsymal bands in the neck
- Sweating! – neurotoxins can help to treat sweaty palms and feet. Also known as Hyperhidrosis
When neurotoxins are injected beneath the surface of the skin, the injections temporarily reduce the underlying muscle activity that causes the muscles to contract. This, in turn, makes you look younger!
Most procedures take only 10 – 15 minutes, allowing you to return to your daily activities right away. This is why most people consider these treatments to be a lunchtime procedure!
Our well-trained staff of Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants strategically choose dosing based on your muscle mass and strength in the area of concern. Our consultations are always free.
The original neurotoxin! Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a brand of neurotoxins. You may have also heard it referred to as a wrinkle reducer or neuromodulator. Botox® usually takes effect within 14 days of treatment and results last an average of 3-4 months.
