About Neurotoxins

What They Are

Neurotoxins are an FDA approved treatment that have been used medically since the 1970s. They are safe, highly effective and require zero downtime. When carefully injected, Botox and Dysport give skin a smooth and renewed appearance that looks natural.

How it Works

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and other neurotoxins target the underlying causes of wrinkles and frown lines. We inject small doses into the end of a nerve to temporarily block its impulses and allow facial muscles to relax.

What to Expect

Treatment only takes 10-15 minutes, and a few tiny injections. You can be in and out on your lunch break! Noticeable results should appear 3-5 days after treatment, with full results visible 14 days post treatment.


It depends on several factors including: which area(s) you are trying to treat (11s, forehead, crow’s feet, etc), the strength of your facial muscles, and how deep your existing lines are. We recommend a complimentary consultation with our nurse injector to create a plan that is right for you.

Not really - it feels like a pinch! The needle is small, thin, and it goes by quickly to decrease the possibility of pain. No numbing agents are needed.

There’s virtually zero downtime with these treatments. Neurotoxins are often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure,” since most patients return directly to work or normal activity immediately. Some redness and swelling may occur at the injection sites, but it usually subsides within a few hours. Very rarely, patients may experience minor bruising.

Results last around 3-6 months, depending on the location of the treatment, your muscle activity and your body’s individual response.

While Botox and Dysport are both injectables (specifically, botulinum toxin injections) used to treat and prevent wrinkles, their chemical compositions are slightly different which can make one more effective than the other at specific injection sites. We recommend talking to our nurse injector to understand which product is the best fit for you!

Neurotoxin injections are very common, low risk procedures. Headache, minor bruising or swelling at the injection site are the most common but still rare side effects. As with any treatment, there are always risks which your nurse injector will walk you through prior to treatment.

Pease don’t wear any makeup to your appointment. Our injectors need to be able to see your fine lines and wrinkles clearly.

People who are pregnant or nursing are not eligible for neurotoxin treatment.
