Neurotoxin Injectables Q&A

How do neurotoxin injectables work?

Neurotoxin injectables reduce nerve activity to accomplish various medical goals, including softening certain wrinkles. Also called wrinkle relaxers, neurotoxin injectables work by inhibiting acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter that controls the muscles of your face. 

During your treatment consultation at Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles, the team reviews your goals and can confirm if neurotoxin injectables are the most suitable option. They also go over your medical history to make sure neurotoxin injectables will be safe and effective within your treatment plan. 

What do neurotoxin injectables treat?

When used for cosmetic purposes, neurotoxin injectables treat a class of wrinkles called dynamic wrinkles. These lines form on your face over time as your skin ages. When you make repeated muscle movements or facial expressions, dynamic wrinkles deepen. 

Some features you can treat with neurotoxin injectables are:

Glabellar lines

Glabellar lines appear vertically between your eyebrows. They’re associated with frowning and furrowing your brow. 

Crow’s feet

Crow’s feet are collections of wrinkles that appear near the outer corners of your eyes. They’re associated with grinning and squinting. 

Horizontal forehead lines

Horizontal forehead lines may appear over time when you raise your eyebrows. You might see several horizontal lines run parallel across your forehead. 

Platysma bands

Platysma bands are vertical bands of tissue on your neck that may become more prominent with age.

How long do the results of neurotoxin injectables last?

Neurotoxin injectables cannot erase wrinkles and lines for good, but they can offer months of remarkable results. Most people find that neurotoxin injectable results last for three or four months after the initial round of injections at Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles. 

If you’re happy with how you look after using neurotoxin injectables to treat wrinkles or neck bands, you may come back to Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles for additional injections. You can do so every few months for as long as you’d like, and you can consider other treatments to boost your skin’s health and structure, like microneedling or dermal fillers.
