The Magic of Neurotoxins: More Than Just Wrinkle Treatment

December 11, 2024

What Are Neurotoxins?

Neurotoxins, such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, are injectable treatments derived from botulinum toxin. While they are commonly associated with reducing wrinkles, their uses extend far beyond simple aesthetics.

Neurotoxins for Wrinkle Reduction

Neurotoxins can be injected into the muscles of the face to relax those that cause wrinkles over time. This results in a more youthful, rested appearance. They are particularly effective in softening:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Lines around the mouth, chin, and neck

What is a Nefertiti Lift?

Named after the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, known for her long and thin neck, the Nefertiti lift is a minimally invasive procedure designed to improve the appearance of the lower face, jaw, and neck with botulinum toxin injections. This non-invasive treatment can be an effective alternative to a surgical facelift or neck lift.

Cosmetic Benefits of the Nefertiti Neck Lift:

  • Improves jaw definition
  • Enhances the appearance of prominent neck bands
  • Reduces lines and wrinkles around the mouth
  • Smooths out dimples on the chin
  • Erases or reduces the appearance of drooping skin on the neck
  • Removes lines and wrinkles on the neck

Microdosing Neurotoxins

Microdosing involves injecting numerous smaller, often diluted, doses of neurotoxins just below the surface of the skin. Also known as “microtox,” this technique can help decrease pore size, fine lines, redness, and oil production.

Neurotoxins for Acne, Rosacea, and More

Recent studies have shown that neurotoxins can be effective in treating certain types of acne and rosacea. Patients experienced reduced shine and sebum secretion, smaller pores, and significant smoothing of post-acne scars.

Neurotoxins for Other Cosmetic Reasons

  • Mouth and Smile: Neurotoxins can help improve your smile by reducing the amount of gum shown when you smile. They can also address smile asymmetry.
  • Jawline: Neurotoxins can help reduce harsh lines in the jawline by weakening tension in the masseter or jaw muscles.

Neurotoxins for Pain

Neurotoxins can effectively treat chronic migraines, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), and temporomandibular joint dysfunction (jaw pain). By blocking pain transmission, neurotoxins help prevent migraines before they begin and relieve discomfort associated with sweating and jaw problems.
