Smile-Chic specializes in multiple areas of medical and cosmetic beauty from the neck up, and one area of expertise we can provide to our patients is neurotoxins. These injections can be used to target areas of fine lines, wrinkles, and muscle contractions, creating softer, more youthful expressions on your face.
What Are Neurotoxin Injections?
Neurotoxins are injectable solutions that block nerve receptors in the muscles. By blocking the nerves from sending signals, they impact the appearance of the outer skin, preventing lines and wrinkles from forming. Often used to treat muscle spasms and stiffness, they’re commonly used to target the underlying causes of fine lines and wrinkles in the face. When injected into the muscle, the neurotoxin bacterium temporarily pauses face muscle activity, reducing the appearance of visible lines and allowing the skin to renew itself back to youth through collagen production naturally.
Each neurotoxin injection works with different cultivation of bacterium, and at Smile-Chic, we work with two brands of neurotoxins to treat wrinkles:
- Botox Injections: Botulinum Toxin A, popularized by the brand name BOTOX, is more commonly used due to its ability to treat forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other sources of wrinkles. BOTOX contains additive proteins to form a protective complex within the botulinum molecules to assist in blocking nerve activity, producing stronger effects. The effects of BOTOX typically last three to four months, depending on the treatment areas.
- Xeomin Injections: Xeomin works with a special botulinum formulation and is used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows. While the injections have limited uses for cosmetic reasons, this injection brand is also approved by the FDA to treat cervical dystonia and blepharospasms. It contains no additive proteins and produces results that last between three to six months.
Neurotoxin injections like BOTOX and Xeomin can be just what you need when you’re looking to spruce up your looks and feel more like yourself. These non-invasive aesthetic procedures can provide the long-term skin care you need that no other skin product can provide. Because of the subtle differences in our line of injections, it is important to schedule an appointment without our team to see which one will work best for you.
