Neurotoxin

Reduce wrinkles and fine lines with neurotoxin injections from Nurse Dacy, Savannah’s leading aesthetic injector.

Neurotoxin injections are a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. They are also used to treat a variety of other medical conditions, such as migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms.

Neurotoxins work by blocking nerve signals to the muscles. This causes the muscles to relax, which smooths out the skin and reduces wrinkles. Neurotoxin injections are typically administered into the forehead, frown lines, crow’s feet, and lips.

The most common neurotoxin used in aesthetic medicine is botulinum toxin type A (Botox®). Other neurotoxins include Dysport® and Xeomin®. All of these neurotoxins are FDA-approved for the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines.

  • Do not bed over or lay flat for a minimum of 4 hours following treatment.
  • Do not rub, massage or apply pressure to the treated region for a minimum of 4 hours after treatment. This includes applying make-up, facial cleansers or creams, or wearing a hat, scarf, headband or any other garment or accessory that may put pressure on the treatment region.
  • Try to sleep propped up on a few pillows to help any swelling that could possibly occur.
  • The following are normal experiences that can occur following treatment:
    • Tenderness or mild bruising at the injection site
    • A mild headache or absence of headache
    • Although rare, there is the potential to experience mild flu-like symptoms
  • Asymmetry is possible: Opposite sides of your face, and different facial regions may react at different times to treatment. This is normal. If asymmetry is not corrected within 7-10 days following your injection, please contact me.
  • The neurotoxin will begin to take effect within 3 to 6 days following treatment, with full benefits by 2 weeks. The neurotoxin will inhibit your ability to make certain expressions and will soften and relax the associated expression lines. However, it may take several treatments to diminish deeper expression lines.
  • Follow-up treatment is recommended approximately every 3-4 months for frown lines and facial expression treatment and every 6 months for treatment for excessive perspiration, or when you notice your conditions are returning to a pre-treatment state. However, you may call our office at any time with your concerns or for needed follow-up.
  • The effect of the neurotoxin on your inability to make certain facial expressions will last 3 or 4 months. Once you notice movement is returning to the treated facial regions, it is important to repeat your treatment. If treatment is not repeated, your expression lines and the resulting facial creases will return.
  • The effects of neurotoxins are compounding. With each subsequent treatment deeper lines and creases will continue to improve.
