Aging with assistance can mean many things. For this week’s vitality journal, I would like to focus on the integral part neurotoxins play in your skincare routine as your skin matures with age.

As we age our skin changes. You could have the most impeccable skincare routine and still find that your skin is showing signs of wrinkles and fine lines. As we age, the repeated contractions of facial muscles from expressions such as squinting, frowning, and smiling can lead to the formation of dynamic wrinkles, particularly in areas like the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), and around the eyes (crow's feet). Neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, Xeomin and Daxxify can provide noticeable improvements in the appearance of wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed look.

Neurotoxins are a valuable tool to add to your anti-aging arsenal, helping individuals achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin. However, it's essential to approach aesthetic injections with realistic expectations and to work closely with our team to discuss your options and what specific neurotoxin is best for you. Every client is unique in what their desired outcomes are. If you are new to aesthetic injections a consult with the Top Body Med Spa team is a great place to start.

Here's how neurotoxin aesthetic injections work:

Muscle Relaxation: Botulinum toxin type A works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that signals muscles to contract. By temporarily paralyzing or weakening targeted facial muscles, neurotoxin injections can smooth out wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements, such as frowning or squinting.

Wrinkle Reduction: Neurotoxin injections are commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles that form when facial muscles contract, such as forehead lines, frown lines (glabellar lines), and crow's feet. By relaxing these muscles, the appearance of wrinkles is diminished, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

Treatment Areas: In addition to treating facial wrinkles, neurotoxin injections can also be used for other aesthetic purposes, such as lifting the eyebrows, reducing the appearance of neck bands, and softening the jawline.

Procedure: During the procedure, the healthcare provider will carefully inject small amounts of botulinum toxin into specific muscles using a fine needle. The injections are typically well-tolerated and require no anesthesia. Patients may experience minimal discomfort, and there is usually little to no downtime associated with the procedure.

Results: The effects of neurotoxin injections typically become noticeable within a few days to a week after treatment, with optimal results appearing within two weeks. The results typically last for three to six months, after which the muscles gradually regain their ability to contract, and wrinkles may begin to reappear. Consistent maintenance treatments are usually required to sustain the desired results over time.

However, it's essential to understand that neurotoxins are not a permanent solution to aging. The effects typically last for three to six months, after which the muscles gradually regain their ability to contract, and wrinkles may reappear. Your aesthetic dream team at Top Body Med Spa is here to help guide you on the best treatment path.
