Top Benefits of Using a Neurotoxin For Facial Rejuvenation

With regular maintenance, a neurotoxin such as Botox or Dysport can prevent wrinkles caused by muscle movements from forming or deepening. Here’s how these wrinkle relaxers work to give you a natural and more youthful look.

Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that appear when you use your facial muscles beneath the skin to make an expression. After years of laughing, squinting, and worrying, the skin around your eyes and forehead develop deep lines and wrinkles, which can make you look older or more tired than you are. 

The good news? Neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport injections are designed to relax specific muscles in your face and limit their ability to contract. 

Some of the treatment areas these wrinkle relaxers can address include: 

  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet 
  • Brow furrow lines between the eyebrows
  • Strong lines between the mouth and chin
  • Bunny lines around the nasal area

What is a Neurotoxin and How Can It Help with Facial Rejuvenation? 

Neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are injected into the skin in small amounts to temporarily relax facial muscles. While they are primarily used to diminish facial wrinkles and creases, they can also be used for a number of other concerns, including excessive sweating, chronic migraines, or neck/eye spasms. 


Here are some of the important facts you need to know about neurotoxins: 

  • They are injected into the skin and muscles using a fine needle
  • Used to prevent, reduce, and treat facial lines and wrinkles
  • Can take up to 1-2 weeks to show the full effect
  • These products work by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, thereby preventing muscle contraction 
  • Number of injections you need will depend on your muscle strength and the size of the treatment area 

Benefits of Neurotoxins for Facial Rejuvenation 

  • Fast acting 
  • Long-lasting results (up to 4 months) 
  • Effective on all skin types and pigmentations 
  • FDA approved 
  • Can be used in conjunction with other cosmetic injectables 
  • Quick treatment times 
  • Little to no recovery time 

What to Expect from Your Appointment and Beyond 

If your skin care expert determines that a neurotoxin such as Botox or Dysport is a good treatment for you, you’ll only need a brief appointment to fade your wrinkles. The appointments are typically very quick, but the time varies depending on the:

  • Number of treatment sites
  • Size of the treatment site 
  • Severity of your wrinkles
  • Goal outcomes 

There is no downtime after your procedure, but it can take up to 14 days for you to see the full results.

Never Rub Your Injection Site 

It’s important that you never rub your injection site, because doing so can cause the neurotoxin to migrate to other areas of your face, which can lead to muscle weakness and facial drooping. 

In order to look after your skin following a Botox or Dysport treatment, you can: 

  • Use ice to reduce swelling 
  • Limit heat exposure 
  • Avoid touching the treatment sites 
  • Refrain from smoking 
  • Avoid taking hot baths or showers 
  • Refrain from participating in vigorous exercise for at least 48 hours
