Neurotoxin Q&A

What are neurotoxins?

Neurotoxins (Botox® and Jeuveau®) at Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta contain substances that relax facial muscles. The injections are safe, simple, and virtually painless. They, along with dermal fillers, can perfect your appearance and turn back the hands of time without invasive procedures. 

What are neurotoxins used for?

Neurotoxins available at Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta offer the following anti-aging benefits:

  • Fewer crow’s feet
  • Diminished forehead lines
  • Reduced lines around the mouth
  • Smoother, tighter skin
  • Younger-looking appearance 
  • Less excessive sweating
  • No surgery or downtime

The process of receiving neurotoxins is simple, often taking just 15 minutes to complete. Neurotoxins offer natural-looking, anti-aging results regardless of how old you are.

Am I a candidate for neurotoxins?

The Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta team examines your skin, discusses your symptoms and medical history, and asks about your desired results. They then tailor a dermatology treatment best suited for you and let you know what to expect. 

You might receive Botox, Jeuveau, dermal fillers, other cosmetic injections, or more than one revitalizing treatment during your appointment. 

What happens during neurotoxin injections?

A dermatology specialist cleans your skin and numbs the area if necessary to make the treatment feel comfortable. While you relax in a comfortable reclining chair, they inject neurotoxic substances beneath certain areas of your skin. Each injection takes just a minute or two, making neurotoxin procedures excellent lunchtime treatments.

After the procedure, the injection sites may be slightly swollen, tender, or red for a short period of time. Avoid touching the treatment area to reduce the chance of spreading neurotoxins to other areas of your body.

How often should I schedule treatment with neurotoxins?

The effects of neurotoxins are often noticeable after several days and last about four months. If you have received dermal fillers, those results usually last 6-24 months. Though, with all neurotoxins, the individual results may vary. After the effects of neurotoxins wear off, you can schedule repeat injections at Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta to maintain long-lasting youthful beauty.
