Neurotoxins are among the world’s most popular and time-tested injectables for reversing age-related fine lines, wrinkles, creases, furrows and folds that mar the appearance and sabotage one’s self-esteem. These safe, non-invasive compounds work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are responsible for our most frequent facial contractions, such as smiling, squinting, frowning or yawning. The result is beautiful, smooth skin that glows with youthful radiance.

How do our treatments work?
Although Neurotoxins are forms of botulinum toxin type A, the molecular structure and a slightly different formula are the key differences. Some contain smaller molecules than the other, providing visible results faster. Because of the smaller molecules, some also spread over a larger area, which is beneficial in for some facial skin conditions – and not others. Spreading allows them to be used for larger treatment areas, but also means that it cannot be applied precisely to small areas or to facial areas with a thicker muscle. Others are more beneficial in smaller areas or thick muscles as its structure keeps it confined to a smaller area, providing a more precise treatment.
Others are more concentrated than some, meaning that the two compounds are measured differently. For example, fifty units of some will be a different dosage than fifty units of others. If you have had others in the past, you will need to increase the number of units with some. However, dilution does not impact the effectiveness of either injectable. You will simply need more some to achieve similar results. Some costs less per unit than others, but as you need more of the product to get results, the total cost is very similar in the two treatments.
How do our treatments work?
Both neurotoxins rely on carefully formulated strains of botulinum toxin, which works as a nerve block, reducing activity in the tiny muscles that allow us to laugh, frown or make other faces. Once injected, these miniscule muscles remain at rest, reducing wrinkles and softening the entire complexion. Friends and family members may comment that you look well rested after Neurotoxin treatment, and that you look your best in years.
