Neurotoxin injections that are offered at DeRoberts Plastic Surgery relax muscles which helps smooth wrinkles. We understand that “neurotoxin” can sound a bit scary, but rest assured, cosmetic neurotoxin products are FDA approved and widely used by plastic surgeons around the world! Studies show that neurotoxins are equally as safe as taking over the counter drugs such as Ibuprofen.
Wrinkles are often caused by the constant repetition of certain facial expressions, such as squinting, raising eyebrows, and frowning. Neurotoxins treat these wrinkles by temporarily reducing the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults. Since neurotoxin treatments work by preventing muscle contraction, they are also an effective way to prevent future wrinkles.
Once you have decided that treatment with Neurotoxins is for you, you can expect a quick and easy office visit. Your visit will begin with an assessment and conversation with one of our experienced providers, where your areas of concern will be addressed. Once you and your provider have agreed upon the injection locations they will be precisely marked. Most patients find the injections very tolerable, as the procedure lasts only minutes from start to finish . Once treatment is complete patients are provided with ice for comfort while post-treatment instructions (see below) are reviewed.
Most patients begin to see some effects three days following Neurotoxin injection, but can expect full results in one to two weeks, typically lasting between three and four months. To increase the longevity of your treatment and minimize the possibility of potential side effects be sure to follow all post-treatment instructions and choose an experienced injector. The injectors at DeRoberts Plastic Surgery are highly knowledgeable and diligent about continuing education, always staying current with new information, techniques, and patient safety.
