What Are Neurotoxin Injections?
Neurotoxins like BOTOX are a safe, fast, and effective way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions on the forehead and around the eyes and lips. BOTOX, Jeuveau, Dysport, and Xeomin are all FDA-approved, highly purified protein injections produced by the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. This bacterium paralyzes the muscles in the face, reducing muscle movement and skin wrinkling. At Modern Dose, our providers utilize perfected injection techniques when administering these treatments, offering youthful results without making people look like they’ve had work done.

Platysma (Neck bands)
The platysma muscles are the vertical cords that run down your neck. This procedure also known as the “Nefertiti Neck Lift,” will improve the appearance and dull the neck bands. By relaxing the muscle, it smooths out the affected areas, while restoring a more sculpted and attractive appearance to your neck and jaw area!

A neurotoxin can be used to slim and contour your face. By involuntarily grinding your teeth at night (TMJ or Bruxism), the masseter muscles that span the mid to lower face eventually get bigger; giving the face a square shape. By treating this area, it can have a dramatic effect on facial contour and /or treat TMJ.
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Do you suffer from excessive underarm sweating? This effective treatment works by blocking a chemical in the body that activates the sweat glands. Results last from 6-12 months!

These neurotoxin injections are widely recognized and trusted standards in the aesthetic industry.

What Do Neurotoxin Injections Treat?
Our neurotoxin injections reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by blocking muscle contractions. The compound included in these treatments is commonly used for treating frown and forehead lines caused by excessive muscle movement. Additionally, each injection is specialized for specific regions of the face. BOTOX, for example, can also be used for treating crow’s feet and glabella lines (for frown lines). Additionally, it can serve as a non-surgical brow lift, brow asymmetry, drooping mouth corner, smoker line, and neck bands treatment. BOTOX can even alleviate severe underarm sweating.
What to Expect During Treatment
Neurotoxin injections are quick, easy, and painless. During your treatment, small amounts of Clostridium Botulinum will be injected into the targeted muscles in your face. A precise amount of the product will be carefully injected into each site for maximum, long-lasting results. The procedure will take roughly 10-15 minutes to complete. A topical anesthetic may be applied to your skin to minimize discomfort before injection begins. This short procedure results in small areas of swelling that last 20-30 minutes.
Results of Neurotoxin Injections
Generally, injection results can be seen within 2-7 days after treatment and tend to last anywhere between 3-4 months.* In some cases, certain injectables such as BOTOX can last up to six months.* This treatment is minimally invasive and results in a significant reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.* Your skin will look tighter, smoother, and much more youthful.*
