Our physicians and physician assistants are regional experts in neurotoxin injections. Even those committed to good skincare practices cannot avoid those wrinkles created by the motion of smiling and frowning. Neurotoxins help those who would like to see an improvement of motion-related wrinkles of the forehead around the eyes, and between the brows. BOTOX®, Dysport and Xeomin are extremely safe, FDA approved prescription medications. Cosmetic toxins work by temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles to prevent frown and forehead lines, crow’s feet, neck and other wrinkles and fine lines that tend to accumulate over time.
What are Neurotoxins?
In large doses such a neurotoxin is fatal, but in small doses it provides a therapeutic effect. It has been used to successfully treat uncontrolled muscle contractions of the eyelid, cervical and limb dystonia (a neurological movement disorder), and is also being investigated for myofascial pain.
Because it is a neurotoxin, it is important to understand how the drug works, how effective it is, and any possible side effects you might develop. The providers at Lane Aesthetics are well versed in neurotoxin injections and are ready to help you.
