Botox / Jeuveau (“Newtox”) / Xeomin

Neurotoxin injections are noted primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. They’re also used to treat conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder and lazy eye. Neurotoxin injections may also help prevent chronic migraines.

People are always asking “How much do I need?”  Neurotoxins are dosed as “units” . How many units necessary really depends on how many treatment areas are desired.  The most commonly requested areas of treatment are the glabella (The 11’s) and the forehead. These areas combined can use approximately  20-30 units. The “crow’s feet” are also a popular treatment area, requiring between 12-18 units.

The effects of neurotoxins can last on average 3-4 months. Factors which can effect longevity of the product are the amount used and the activity level of the recipient.  Neurotoxins remain  the most commonly requested cosmetic procedure due to the effectiveness in producing a refreshed , more youthful appearance.
