Neurotoxin Q & A
What is Neurotoxin?
Neurotoxin is a popular injectable that uses neurotoxins to influence your skin. More specifically, the neurotoxin in Neurotoxin temporarily causes your nerve cells to stop communicating with muscles in the region.
As a result, those muscles don’t flex, even subconsciously, while the medication is active. Neurotoxin stays active for 4-6 months.
Unlike other cosmetic injectables, Neurotoxin has both medical and cosmetic purposes. Its most well-known use is for small wrinkles and fine lines on the face, which develop over time due to muscle contractions that cause the skin to crease.
If you’re happy with your results, you can come back to Wellskin Dermatology & Aesthetics for additional Neurotoxin injections. Once you have an idea of how long Neurotoxin lasts, you can book regular injection appointments with the team.
What can Neurotoxin do?
Neurotoxin serves several purposes at Wellskin Dermatology & Aesthetics, and the team can create your treatment plan according to your goals. No matter the purpose, you typically need several Neurotoxin injections at a time. The treatment can:
- Smooth crow’s feet wrinkles
- Smooth forehead lines
- Smooth frown lines
- Smooth a dimpled chin
- Reduce excessive sweating
There may be other available applications for Neurotoxin, too. The team tells you if Neurotoxin fits in your treatment plan and whether you’re a good candidate.
What happens during a Neurotoxin procedure?
Getting Neurotoxin starts with a treatment consultation. The team at Wellskin Dermatology & Aesthetics reviews your goals and discusses your medical history. They map out where to put the injections and let you know what you’ll need to do to prepare.
The team uses an extremely fine needle to inject Neurotoxin, and you might not need anesthesia. Still, numbing cream or ice might be an option. After marking the injection spots, the team injects small amounts of Neurotoxin to build your ideal result. It takes 24-72 hours to see the complete effect.
You can safely go back to your daily activities right away after your Neurotoxin injections. However, avoid rubbing or excessively touching the injection sites since the product can migrate into surrounding areas. If you have any discomfort, an over-the-counter pain reliever or a cold compress can offer relief.
