Neurotoxins are medical injections that temporarily stop the transmission of nerve signals to the brain to get the desired results. Botox and Xeomin are types of neurotoxins offered at Central Utah Dermatology.
Neurotoxins are best known for minimizing the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. These types of wrinkles are the result of repeated facial expressions.
When you squint or frown, the facial muscles create grooves that fold the skin. As you get older, your skin loses its natural strength and elasticity due to a decrease in collagen production.
The regular folding of your skin combined with collagen loss leads to the more permanent etched-in lines. Neurotoxins temporarily stop the muscle movement that causes the folding, giving your skin time to relax and smooth out.
In addition to wrinkles, neurotoxins treat hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), chronic migraines, and neck spasms.
The team at Central Utah Dermatology customizes your neurotoxin treatment to match your specific needs and goals.
You may need several injections to get the desired results. However, the team uses tiny needles when administering the neurotoxin so you feel very little pain.
After cleaning your skin, your provider at Central Utah Dermatology carefully and expertly injects the neurotoxin into your skin. Injections usually take 30 minutes or less.
You can resume your usual routine following cosmetic injections. However, the team requests you hold off on strenuous physical activity for a few hours to reduce risk of bruising.
You may not see results right away with neurotoxins. For wrinkles, you may notice some improvements within a day or two, but it may take up to 30 days to see the full effects. For medical dermatology conditions like hyperhidrosis, you may start seeing improvements within five days*.
Results from neurotoxins are temporary and may last 3-6 months*. The team at Central Utah Dermatology recommends regular injections to maintain results.
