All these products are very similar in nature and effect, with subtle differences between them. A small percentage of people will be resistant to one or more of these toxins. Therefore, when treated, if the utilized agent is either ineffective or less than fully effective, you may respond better to one of the others. Upon your SkinLocal consultation, your skin expert will work with you to determine which product is best for you.
The neurotoxin itself is a medically manufactured drug originating from bacteria that is associated with botulism. We know, we know — that sounds scary! But it’s totally not; these toxins are extensively proven to be safe and effective, and have been utilized in medicine for decades and have many different uses in addition to smoothing wrinkles, including treating migraine headaches and muscle spasticity.
The toxin itself blocks the transmission of information from a local nerve to the associated muscle, and, therefore, with the muscle unable to fully flex, there are fewer lines.
Yes! There’s a reason Botox and its contemporaries are commonly known as “lunch break treatments.” The quick and minimally invasive treatment will have you in and out in 30 minutes or less, with no downtime after the injections. Note that you may have a bit of bruising and/or some small, mosquito-bite-type bumps at the injection site after your treatment, but both are temporary and should subside quickly.
The typical side effects are headache, bruising, swelling, and redness. These are temporary and will resolve. However, please call the office at 786.701.8106 to notify us if you experience any additional side effects.
