Neurotoxin, or injectable wrinkle removers, block the impulses from the nerves to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. It relaxes the muscles so they don’t contract. Post-treatment, the overlying skin appears smooth and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles are able to contract in normal fashion, so you can still make your usual facial expressions. In addition to softening facial features, it may be used to shrink enlarged calf muscles, control excessive sweating of the palms and soles, and make the neck appear longer. We only use FDA-approved and experience-tested neurotoxins, for your safety and peace of mind.
