Neurotoxins like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau are non-surgical cosmetic treatments used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. They’re made from a purified form of the botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Though they come from the same neurotoxin, the brands differ in their formulation, potency, and recommended uses. When injected in small amounts into targeted muscles, these neurotoxins can relax the muscles and smooth the overlying skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and creating a more youthful look.
The benefits of using neurotoxins include the reduction of dynamic wrinkles, those lines formed by repetitive facial movements such as frowning, squinting, or smiling. They’re particularly effective on crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Besides aesthetic improvements, they can also be used therapeutically to treat conditions like excessive sweating, chronic migraines, and certain muscle disorders. Neurotoxins offer a non-invasive alternative to surgery with minimal recovery time.
Neurotoxins work by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where they are injected. Without these signals, the muscle is unable to contract, leading to reduced movement and softening of wrinkles. The effect is temporary as the nerve endings will gradually re-establish their signals over time. This is why repeated treatments are often necessary to maintain the results.
After injections with a neurotoxin, you can expect your targeted wrinkles and fine lines to become noticeably softer and smoother, leading to a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. Results typically become visible within 3 to 5 days after treatment, but it can take up to 2 weeks for the full effect to be evident. The effects usually last between 3 and 6 months, after which the muscle action gradually returns and the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear.
To prepare for injections with neurotoxins, you should avoid alcohol, blood thinners, and anti-inflammatory medications for about a week before the procedure to reduce the risk of bruising. You should also stop any topical treatments or skin care products a few days prior. You will have a consultation with Dr. Gr to discuss any allergies or medical conditions that could interfere with the treatment.
During a neurotoxin treatment, the healthcare provider will first clean the treatment areas. Then, using a very fine needle, they will inject the neurotoxin into the specific muscles that are causing lines and wrinkles. The procedure usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes, and you should feel minimal discomfort.
Recovery from a neurotoxin treatment is generally minimal. You might experience some redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, but these side effects should fade quickly. It’s recommended to avoid strenuous activity, exposure to sun or heat, and lying down or bending over for a few hours after treatment to prevent the neurotoxin from spreading to other areas.
The risks associated with neurotoxins are relatively low, especially when the treatment is performed by a trained healthcare professional. However, potential side effects can include pain or bruising at the injection site, drooping eyelids or eyebrows, eye dryness or excessive tearing, and, rarely, an allergic reaction. Dr. G will discuss any risks with you at your consultation prior to your procedure.
The cost of neurotoxin treatment varies depending on the number of injections needed and the type of neurotoxin used. Dr. G will discuss the cost of your personalized neurotoxin treatment with you at your consultation.
