What is a neurotoxin?

Neurotoxin is a general term used to classify many common name brands of muscle relaxers on the market, including Botox, Jeuveau, Dysport, and Xeomin.

Simply put, these Botox-like products are prescription medicines injected into muscles to force the muscle to relax and temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe unwanted lines on the face and body.

At Personal MD Wellness & Aesthetics, we offer a variety of injectables, including Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) and Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA), to help soften wrinkles and help you look younger and less tired. 

Dr. Simmons is our lead injector and listens to your concerns, evaluates your aesthetic needs, and recommends a custom treatment plan unique to you. He does not believe that one treatment plan or product is suitable for everyone. We encourage you to trust in his 20 years of medical experience, skill, and the constant pursuit of the latest cosmetic advances to achieve your natural beauty.

FAQs about Toxins

Botox-type injections can help an adult patient improve his or her appearance, not only giving a more youthful look, but also alleviating an overly concerned expression, helping you look refreshed and more pleasant. The areas most commonly treated are those where muscle activity influences facial features, such as the following:

  • Glabellar lines (a.k.a. “elevens” or frown lines)
  • Wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet
  • Forehead creases
  • Corners of the mouth
  • A “cobblestoned” appearance to the chin
  • There are many other “off-label” areas where toxin injections can be used. For example, hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating) in the armpits, hands or feet  • Migraines • TMJ • Grinding or Clenching Teeth

These products contain the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, and are designed to address the same types of wrinkles and other cosmetic concerns. So how are they different? The main distinction lies in their formulation, which influences the dosage used, how much the product spreads, and how quickly a patient will see results.  All products are FDA approved and have been used safely and effectively for years. Which of these products is best for you will depend on your unique anatomy, your aesthetic goals, and your injector's recommendations.

Physical downtime from procedure: none.  Social downtime from procedure: I like to say none but it is possible to cause a bruise and on rare occasion, it can be hard to cover with makeup.  It is always best to give yourself a few weeks before you have any important events to give the toxin time to work and let any bruises heal.

There are no restrictions after receiving toxin.

With rare exceptions, most people are a candidate to try a neurotoxin.  Toxins have both medical and cosmetic uses and have been extensively studied.  They have been used in children and adults for various reasons.  Your doctor will review your medical history to ensure you have no apparent reason you should avoid getting treated.

Your cost includes the price of the product and the skill and expertise of your injector.  We recommend choosing an injector that is certified and experienced with toxins.

Dr. Simmons has over fifteen years of injection experience, is certified by Allergan and Galderma, and teaches new injectors techniques he has learned over the years.
