Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold.
When you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet. Neurotoxins work beneath the skin’s surface and target the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time. Neurotoxins are a prescription medicine that are injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve, reduce or eliminate the look of both moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles, resulting in a refreshed, rested more youthful look.

What Are Neurotoxins?
FDA-approved and safe, neurotoxins are injectable muscle relaxants. When strategically injected into the body, neurotoxins help relax the muscles that cause wrinkles to form. They are temporary, effective and non-invasive proving to be a trusting solution to maintain a more youthful appearance.
How Long Do Neurotoxins Last?
Each neurotoxin is different, but on average it takes about 1-2 weeks to see your maximum results. These optimal results last for 3-4 months depending on the patient.
Is There Downtime After Neurotoxin Injections?
There is no true downtime required, however you should expect a bit of swelling and slight redness in your treated areas. To prevent excess swelling, we recommend avoiding heavy exercise, salty foods, alcohol, and sleeping face down the same night as your appointment. Icing the area will help to reduce swelling and ease any sensitivity
