What are Neurotoxins?

Neurotoxin injections are the single most popular injectable cosmetic procedure in the U.S. These treatments are most commonly used to smooth wrinkles around the eyes, frown lines, and forehead creases. However, many patients are surprised to learn that neurotoxins can also be used to slim the face and lift the brow and to address conditions like hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraines, and TMJ.

Neurotoxins are injected into the muscle to relax the area and treat signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines.

Neurotoxins Botox Treatment Options

Koniver Aesthetics Charleston offers the best neurotoxin treatment options. Botox Cosmetic® is the #1 selling treatment of its kind and is the first and only FDA-approved treatment that temporarily reduces moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults.

This neurotoxin targets one of the underlying causes behind expression line formation — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, smiling, squinting, laughing and raising your eyebrows over the years — that can make you look tired or angry even when you are not.

Botox safely works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces underlying muscle activity. The treated muscles are relaxed around the injected area, which reduces the skin creasing of these “dynamic wrinkles” that develop on your face every time you contract muscles to make an expression. The treatment results in a smoother appearance to the skin and can also prevent new creases from occurring.

DAXXIFY® is an innovative neurotoxin that is among the latest in the growing family of neurotoxins, having been FDA Approved in 2022. When injected into the muscles, DAXXIFY® is capable of creating smoothing effects that last from six to nine months, especially when used to treat glabellar lines across the forehead. As an injectable neurotoxin, DAXXIFY® is notable because it is the first neurotoxin to not use human serum albumin or cow’s milk protein, making it suitable for vegans and those who wish to avoid such ingredients. Instead, it consists of a novel peptide along with the neurotoxin ingredient to prevent and eliminate lines and wrinkles. DAXXIFY® works just like other neurotoxins, stopping the repetitive muscle contractions that lead to dynamic wrinkles and folds.
DAXXIFY® offers more time with fewer lines, with its efficacy across patients tested and proven in one of the largest ever studies of a neuromodulator. With DAXXIFY®, achieving and maintaining long-lasting gorgeous results has never been easier!

Depending on your lifestyle, DAXXIFY® could be exactly what your skin needs. Men especially love this toxin because they need fewer appointments due to its long-lasting effects. So, if your schedule is very busy, or you don’t live in Charleston full time, DAXXIFY® can keep your skin line-free without having to make regular visits. Additionally, DAXXIFY® is a wonderful option for patients who exercise frequently. Working out often can cause other neurotoxins to metabolize quicker, which is why our fitness-loving patients prefer DAXXIFY® for its enduring results despite frequent gym trips.

Dysport® Dysport® is an FDA-approved prescription neurotoxin (incobotulinumtoxinA) injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines or ‘the 11’s”) by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions. One injection into each of the five points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines, smoothing the appearance of the skin.

Dysport® gives a natural look as it diminishes and smooths the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the movement or look of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express yourself naturally.

Xeomin® is clinically proven and FDA-approved to reduce the glabellar lines – frown lines between the eyebrows – ‘the 11’s.’ When you squint, frown or smile, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. As your skin ages over time and loses its elasticity, these repeated muscle contractions cause persistent frown lines. Xeomin® is a highly purified neurotoxin (incobotulinumtoxinA) which blocks muscle nerve impulses and causes them to relax. Because of this purification process, Xeomin® lacks the accessory proteins in Botox, which means you are less likely to develop resistant antibodies toward it. The result is diminished wrinkles and a more refreshed, youthful appearance.

Celebrities like Christie Brinkley and Gwyneth Paltrow consider Xeomin® one of their best-kept secrets for looking younger naturally.

What to Expect

For all neurotoxin options, a complete treatment takes approximately five to ten minutes.

Before treatment, your practitioner will review the benefits and possible side effects. Your skin will be cleansed and topical numbing cream may be applied, depending on the procedure.

During your treatment, you will be made comfortable and a syringe containing the product is injected into the skin or underlying muscle. Injections are relatively painless and feel like a minor pinch. No anesthesia is required. Occasionally there may be mild, temporary redness and/or swelling at the injection site, which typically resolves within the hour.

Mild bruising may occur at injection site; however, we are able to drastically reduce the likelihood of bruising by using AccuVein®. This innovative technology allows your provider to see the location of veins and blood vessels beneath the surface of the skin, thus more easily avoiding them.

When the treatment is over, you are ready to go. There is no downtime. However, as a precaution to keep the product from migrating from the injection site, we ask that you do not massage the injected areas, lie flat for at least four hours post-treatment, or exercise for the rest of the day.

Botox Treatment Guidelines

Pre-Treatment Instructions
To reduce the risk of bruising, we advise that you:

  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hrs prior to your appointment.
  • Avoid blood thinning medications and supplements (e.g. ibuprofen, aleve, and fish oil).
  • Take arnica up to 2 days before treatment.
  • If you are prone to cold sores, please treat preventatively prior to treatment.

Post-Treatment Instructions
Avoid exercise and alcohol for 24 hours post-treatment to reduce the risk of additional bruising and to allow time for the injectable product to integrate into your tissue.

Use ice as needed to reduce swelling.

IMPORTANT: Should you notice blanching or discoloration of the skin or are experiencing increasing pain or redness around the injection site, PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE.

Results

Results vary by product. In general, you will begin to see visible smoothing two to four days after injection. The full effects can occur as early as one or two weeks, or up to 30 days, after treatment. These are temporary treatments and the typical duration of the effect is three to four months.

Disclaimer: Every patient is different, and results may vary due to a number of factors. During your consultation, we will discuss with you the results you can expect and create a custom neurotoxins treatment plan that’s right for you at our Koniver Aesthetics Charleston, SC Clinic.

Neurotoxins: FAQs

Do I need to be over 40 to start having injectable treatments?
It’s not age that determines usage. Everyone’s face forms lines differently, influenced by cellular changes over time, reduction of collagen, genetic factors, or damage by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Is there anything I should not do after a neurotoxin treatment?
After treatment, avoid exercise and alcohol for 24 hours. Try to not “rub” the neurotoxin around the treated area. It’s best to avoid putting any excessive pressure on the treated area for the first few days – especially when cleansing or applying makeup.
