Neurotoxin Injection

botox face 2A neurotoxin injection relaxes certain targeted muscles such as marionette lines, ‘number 11′ frown lines, crow’s feet, smokers’ lines, platysmal bands in the neck, dimply chin, down turned mouth corners etc. Therapeutic treatments include hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating), migraines, muscle spasticity, TMJ pain, neck and back pain/spasms, eye twitching. It takes 3 to 14 days to start showing an effect and results last 3 to 4 months. Over time with upkeep of treatments muscles start to atrophy (like any muscle that is not working!) and you will likely need fewer products with greater time span.

Facial expression lines are created by contractions of the underlying muscles, pulling the skin together when you smile, laugh or frown. A neurotoxin injection gently relaxes these muscles that cause the overlying skin to fold and crease – wrinkles. A minute quantity of the injectable protein is injected into the wrinkle with a tiny micro-needle. The treatment itself generally requires less than 10 minutes. Within three to five days following the treatment,  frown or laugh lines are reduced. The ongoing progression of the wrinkle will be prevented during the course of the treatment. The injectable used at ReNew is an interesting cosmetic treatment as it is one of the very few cosmetic treatments that originated from the medical treatment of eye spasms and safely used for over twenty years. Due to long term use, there have been many studies which have shown positive benefits with relatively rare, temporary side effects.
