Neurotoxin Injectables

Look Natural. Feel Radiant

All the neurotoxin injectables at Natural Radiance Med Spa contain botulinum toxin type A, which is a neurotoxin that relaxes facial muscles responsible for laugh, frown, and smile lines. The injections are highly effective for reducing unwelcome signs of aging and offer superior results.  Brand names you may know are Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®.  They all very similar in onset, effect, and how long they last.  

One of the most common places where people develop wrinkles is in between the eyebrows. That is because as normal every day activities are performed your face will squint, concentrate or frown, causing the muscles in between your eyebrows to voluntarily contract. The repetitive movements of these muscles cause the skin above them to form permanent creases. In fact, these wrinkles are so common that they will probably be the first wrinkles that you develop, which means treatment may be necessary at any age from 18-65.

Other excellent indications for neuromodulators around the face include:

  • Forehead lines

  • Crow’s feet

  • Frown lines

  • Smoker’s lines

  • A square or harsh jawline

  • A “gummy” smile

  • Downturned mouth corners

  • Chin dimpling

  • Neck bands

  • Wrinkling of the décolleté

  • “Bunny lines” at the nose

  • Eyebrow asymmetry

The process of receiving neurotoxin injectables is fast and simple, but it dramatically improves your appearance and quality of life.


How do neurotoxins work?

All neuortoxins works by relaxing the small muscles immediately under the skin, making it so that they do not receive the signals from the nerves to contract. If the muscles do not move, the wrinkles above them will go away. The good news is that only the injected muscles are affected, so you will still be able to move the rest of your face freely, allowing you to show any and all emotions that you desire. Once injected, the results will last about three to four months and, if necessary, you can receive a new treatment every 90 days.

There are several brand names on the market, such as Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®.  While they all contain botulinum toxin type A, and their actions in terms of onset, effects, and duration are similar, there are a few subtle differences that Dr. Edwards is happy to share with you to help you determine the best treatment course.  That said, Natural Radiance will always gravitate toward a more natural approach for your face and body.  Xeomin is the most purified, and least artificially preserved neurotoxin on the market today and is a favorite of ours for that reason. 


Which integrated services help to improve my neurotoxin outcomes?

Natural Radiance is dedicated to having you Look Natural and Feel Radiant!  Often combined treatments act synergically to amplify the aesthetic results.  If you are a candidate, Dr. Edwards might suggest supplementing your neurotoxins with dermal fillers or other rejuvenating treatments to exceed your beauty goals.  It is important to remember that neurotoxins are most effective against dynamic wrinkles, meaning those that largely disappear when the face is relaxed.  Sometimes, wrinkles have become so pronounced that they are present even when you are not making any facial expressions.  These may require other treatment strategies, such as mesotherapy, platelet-rich plasma, RF microneedling, micro-filler techniques, PDO threads, and in extreme cases laser resurfacing treatments.  These are just some examples of how an integrated approach will exceed your expectations!
