Neurotoxins

See Your Wrinkles Disappear

Freeze Signs of Aging and Take Years Off Your Face

      Neurotoxins, also known as are injectable solutions that temporarily block nerve receptors in the muscle, preventing lines and wrinkles from forming.

They can be used to treat muscle stiffness, muscle spasms,

excessive sweating, and overactive bladder.

Neurotoxins target underlying causes of fine lines on the face, such as, repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting. Your dermatologist will inject the muscles with the neurotoxins to essentially pause muscle activity. The temporary absence of contracting facial muscles will reduce fines lines as the skin naturally renews itself. With a few options, click below to see the difference between the neurotoxin treatments we offer:

Botox

BOTOX

Botox is one of the safest and FDA-approved treatments we offer to take your beauty and confidence to the next level. For many years, Botox has been a popular choice for aesthetic treatments. However, what exactly makes it a potent solution in erasing wrinkles and fine lines?

The protein in Botox is derived from the bacterium C. botulinum, and it can be utilized for cosmetic purposes to immobilize your muscles. Botulinum toxin is produced by certain natural environments occupied by this bacterium, and it can be harmful to humans in large doses, causing botulism. However, medical and cosmetic procedures involve the use of small, regulated doses of Botox (or any other injection containing botulinum toxin) that are safe for use.

If you're looking to minimize the visibility of facial wrinkles, a cosmetic Botox treatment may be a viable option. This treatment works by immobilizing the facial muscles responsible for producing wrinkles, such as frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead creases.

 

By temporarily immobilizing the muscles that generate these creases, a medical professional can inhibit the progression of facial wrinkles and minimize the visual presence of these lines.

Dysport

DYSPORT

The Affordable Option For Reducing The Appearance Of Wrinkles. Dysport is a prescription drug that contains proteins from Clostridium botulinum. Ingesting high doses of C. botulinum bacteria can result in botulinum toxicity, triggering botulism, and posing a potential hazard to people. However, administering finite quantities of botulinum toxins after processing enables safe usage of the medication for temporary muscle paralysis to serve both therapeutic and cosmetic objectives.

Dysport, like Botox, Jeuveau, and Xeomin, utilizes botulinum toxin in its injections. Nevertheless, Dysport differs in its commercial preparation and toxin neutralization. Specifically, Dysport contains abobotulinumtoxin A, which is derived from processed botulinum toxin.

Dysport shares the use of botulinum toxin, similar to Botox, Jeuveau, and Xeomin. Nonetheless, what sets it apart is the method of commercial processing and how toxins are neutralized. Dysport utilizes botulinum toxin that has undergone a specialized manufacturing process resulting in its abobotulinumtoxin A formulation.

Dysport is a type of botulinum toxin injection that can be utilized to freeze facial muscles and prevent them from forming wrinkles by creasing the skin and areas around it. This treatment is effective only for dynamic wrinkles that result from repeated muscle movement, which means it may not be suitable for treating all types of facial wrinkles. For example, frown lines caused by the procerus muscle pulling the skin between the eyebrows down are a dynamic wrinkle that can be treated with Dysport.

 

Injecting Dysport into the procerus muscle can temporarily paralyze the facial muscle, which prevents skin creasing that can cause fine lines to turn into wrinkles and deepen. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles such as frown lines and makes them less noticeable.

XEOMIN

XEOMIN

Xeomin is a prescription drug that was approved by the FDA in 2011. It can be used to treat wrinkles and fine lines, and it has a unique purification method that makes it preferred over other botulinum toxin brands available at our facility.

Xeomin can temporarily freeze your facial muscles. It does this by containing the active ingredient botulinum toxin, which comes from a bacteria naturally found in the body. This prevents skin creasing and wrinkles from developing. Xeomin is similar to other drugs called Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau that also use botulinum

Xeomin (and all of our botulinum toxin products) are carefully processed to minimize the risk of harm. Our experienced team can help you get an injection safely and with minimal risks.

Xeomin is used to treat different medical problems. It can be injected into specific muscles in people to help them:

Rephrase

  • Drooling (sialorrhea) is a common problem.

  • Upper limb spasticity, except for when it's caused by cerebral palsy.

  • Neck pain with cervical dystonia

  • Eye spasms (blepharospasm) due to abnormalities in the

 

Xeomin helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by freezing your facial muscles. When your face moves, it also affects the skin on top of it. This causes folds in the skin which look rough and aged.

Jeaveau

JEAVEAU

Jeuveau, a cosmetic botulinum toxin product, was FDA approved in 2019 and is a new competitor in the market. Popularly known as "Newtox" or new Botox, Jeuveau utilizes botulinum toxin to diminish dynamic wrinkles much like its well-known counterpart, Botox. However, it differs in several aspects, which may make it a better option for you.

Jeuveau is an injectable treatment aimed at temporarily paralyzing muscles and minimizing the look of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines. It comprises a regulated amount of botulinum toxin, a protein that is found in Clostridium botulinum bacteria and can be toxic in large quantities. However, Jeuveau is a safe, FDA-approved injectable that contains only controlled amounts of botulinum toxins. As a result, Jeuveau can efficiently freeze muscle movement and effectively address cosmetic issues. This explanation is neutral in tone, suitable for a knowledgeable audience and aims to inform the reader about the product's safety and effectiveness.

Jeuveau is a neurotoxin injectable that distinguishes itself from other similar products in its preparation process, used for medical and cosmetic purposes. Unlike other brands like Botox which use botulinum toxin, Jeuveau employs a specific type of prepared toxin called prabotulinumtoxin A, which has undergone neutralization to ensure its safety for use.

Although Jeuveau and Botox are both botulinum toxin-based cosmetic treatments, they are distinct brands with several differences. These differences range from FDA approval (Botox received its approval 17 years ahead of Jeuveau, in 2002) to the type of botulinum toxin used, to the range of conditions they can treat (Jeuveau is currently approved to treat glabellar lines, for example). Another noteworthy difference is the timeframe required for results to appear and how long they can last. Additionally, Jeuveau distinguishes itself from other treatments by being made using modern technology that was not available to earlier toxin injection brands. 

A few things you should know

The effects of Botox injections can last from three to six months, depending on a variety of factors. You will need to keep getting treatment every few months in order for the treatments to have an effect. The effects may wear off over time if you don't get treated regularly, so be sure to schedule follow-up appointments.

If you wear makeup to your appointment, we'll need to remove it before your

treatment in order to get a clean canvas.

To reduce post-treatment swelling and bruising take arnica and bromelain before appointment. You can also take Tylenol.

Avoid alcoholic beverages the night before your appointment. It can make skin more susceptible to bruising.

It's best to avoid aspirin and NSAIDs (Advil, Motrin, Aleve) for a week before your treatment to help reduce bruising.

You are not a candidate for these injections if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
