Neurotoxin

What are Neurotoxins & why do people get them?

Neurotoxins are a class of compounds that target the nervous system, specifically the nerve cells that control muscle movement. They work by blocking the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which is necessary for muscle contraction. This results in temporary paralysis of the targeted muscles, leading to a smoother, more youthful appearance.

At our spa, we offer neurotoxin treatments that are FDA-approved and administered by our highly trained medical professionals. Our treatments are safe and effective, and they can be used to address a variety of concerns, such as wrinkles and fine lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet.

Ideal Candidates for Neurotoxin

Suitable for most healthy adults, these treatments are ideal for those seeking a non-surgical solution to reduce signs of aging. Certain conditions like active skin infections, a history of keloids, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or specific neurological disorders may require alternative treatments.

More Details

People choose to get neurotoxin treatments for a variety of reasons. Some simply want to look more refreshed and youthful, while others may have medical conditions that benefit from this type of treatment, such as chronic migraines or excessive sweating.

At our medical spa, we believe that everyone deserves to look and feel their best. That’s why we offer a wide range of aesthetic treatments, including neurotoxin injections, to help you achieve your desired results. We invite you to schedule a consultation with our experts to learn more about our services and how we can help you look and feel your best.

    Seasonal retreatment (think Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall) or retreat every three to six months can help maintain the desired effects. These retreatments ensure that the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles and lines are consistently relaxed, preventing the formation of deeper creases over time. Also, remember the duration of results may vary from person to person, depending on factors such as the type of neurotoxin used, your body’s metabolism, and the specific areas treated.

    Recovery

    After your neurotoxins injections, you may notice small red dots at the injection site, which typically vanish within a day or so. For the best results:
    1. Avoid lying down for at least four hours post-treatment to allow the neurotoxins to settle.
    2. Refrain from rubbing or massaging the treated area on the first day.
    3. Steer clear of strenuous exercise for the initial 12 hours.
    4. Limit alcohol consumption during the first 24 hours as it can thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising.
    5. Although rare, some individuals may experience flu-like symptoms.
    6. Mild reddening at the injection site can also occur.
    Please follow these guidelines for a smoother recovery and optimal results. If you have any concerns, do not hesitate to contact your Truly You Injector.

    Frequently

    Asked Questions

    What are neurotoxins in aesthetic medicine?

    Neurotoxins are substances, such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, used in aesthetic medicine to temporarily reduce or eliminate wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles. They work by blocking nerve signals in the treated area, preventing muscle contractions that cause wrinkles.

    What areas can be treated with neurotoxins?

    Neurotoxins are commonly used to treat areas of the face prone to dynamic wrinkles, including forehead lines, frown lines (between the eyebrows), and crow’s feet (around the eyes). They can also be used for other applications like reducing jawline tension or treating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

    How long do the effects of neurotoxin treatments last?

    The duration of results can vary from person to person but typically lasts for about 3 to 4 months. With regular treatments, some individuals experience prolonged benefits, and maintenance sessions can be scheduled accordingly.

    Is the treatment painful, and is there downtime?

    Neurotoxin injections are generally well-tolerated and minimally painful. Most patients report only mild discomfort, often described as a quick pinch. There’s usually no downtime, and you can resume your regular activities immediately after the procedure.

    Are neurotoxin treatments safe?

    When administered by a trained and licensed medical professional, neurotoxin treatments are considered safe. However, there can be side effects, such as temporary redness, bruising, or mild swelling at the injection site. These effects are typically short-lived and resolve on their own.
