Neurotoxins refer to a group of medications that block the transmission of nerve signals to the brain to get the desired results. Though neurotoxins have many uses, most people are familiar with wrinkle-relaxing neurotoxins.
These injections temporarily reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles by stopping the repetitive muscle contractions that cause them.
Botox® is the trademark name for a specific neurotoxin formulation. It’s the most popular neurotoxin requested at DMA Health & Wellness. But the team uses many brands of neurotoxins so they can meet any beauty need.
Types of neurotoxins include:
Botox was the first wrinkle-relaxer and is FDA-approved to temporarily minimize the appearance of moderate to severe crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.
Xeomin is a purified neurotoxin. It has the same effects as Botox but only contains the therapeutic protein that stops the nerve signals. Xeomin is FDA-approved to treat frown lines.
Dysport is a neurotoxin injection that minimizes the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. This injection smooths out your frown lines without changing movement in your face, creating very natural results.
Jeuveau is the newest neurotoxin injection and works in the same manner as the other injections. It’s FDA-approved to treat frown lines and with continued use, Jeuveau may reduce or prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles.
The team at DMA Health & Wellness specializes in reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles to create a more youthful look. They use neurotoxins to treat a wide range of beauty concerns, including:
They also use neurotoxins to perform a nonsurgical eyebrow lift. The injections work by relaxing the muscles that pull the eyebrows down.
How long neurotoxins last varies from person to person, but typically 3-4 months. The team at DMA Health & Wellness highly recommends using medical-grade skin care products to prolong the effects of the neurotoxin.
