Neurotoxins are injected into the muscles to cause the muscles to relax. This results in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. A very small needle is used to minimize pain, bleeding and bruising. It typically takes 3-7 days for an effect and the full effect can be appreciated at 2 weeks. There is typically no downtime, but rarely clients may have bruising so it is best to not schedule an appointment 1-3 days prior to an important event. Neurotoxin injection typically lasts for 3 months but can be metabolized faster by some individuals. It is best to re-treat every 3-6 months to maintain smooth skin and prevent the formation of new wrinkles.
