The Ins and Outs of
Neurotoxin Injections.

Although the word “neurotoxin” may seem a bit disconcerting, these injections are widely used and have been shown to both soften current wrinkles and to prevent future ones from forming. Neurotoxins take advantage of certain types of bacteria, such as Clostridium Botulinum, that paralyze specific muscles in your face. Not to worry, this does not mean you won’t be able to exercise any of your facial muscles; rather, these neurotoxins are injected in a way that targets particular muscle movements that lead to the formation of wrinkles.

At Allora Medical Spa, we offer three types of neurotoxin injections: Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. All three of these neuromodulators have similar effects, though they contain slightly different ingredients. Our professionals can recommend a neurotoxin type and personalize your treatment to address your specific skin concerns, such as wrinkles on your forehead or around your eyes.

Injections

Although the effects of neurotoxin injections are not permanent, the targeted nerves remain blocked for about 3-6 months. Additionally, some wrinkles may not come back at all, as Botox and similar injections give the skin time to rest without being affected by muscle contractions.
