Neuromodulators, or Toxins, are commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. A combination of factors cause facial lines – cellular change, reduction of collagen, and damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. Another common cause of wrinkles is repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows causing the skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Toxin helps to improve these fine lines and wrinkles by working beneath the surface and temporarily reducing the underlying muscle activity that causes these lines to help them look better.
Toxins are a great option for more people than you may think. Both men and women can suffer from a feeling of aging due to noticeable expression lines. Pronounced lines can make you look angry or stressed—and older than you are. Toxins can easily address this problem.
Younger patients are also jumping on the toxin bandwagon. Even though they do not see deep wrinkles yet, they want to prevent them in the future. Using toxin as an anti-aging measure is just one way to help keep your skin looking young and beautiful. It is true, the best wrinkle is the one you never get.
There are several different types of toxins – Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Daxxify. Each type of toxin has subtle differences and it is best to work with your injector to decide which toxin is best for you and for your goals.
At Jackson Health and Wellness Clinic, we offer Jeuveau, Botox, and Dysport.
