The most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment in the U.S. are neurotoxin injections which are made from purified proteins produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When small concentrations are injected, signals from the nerve cells are briefly prevented from reaching the muscles. These medications have been researched and studied for decades and are considered safe for most adult men and women when small amounts are administered by an experienced, licensed professional.

These nearly painless injections are administered with very fine needles by our Medical Director, Dr. Arbuckle. The procedure is quick, usually requiring only 10 minutes to complete. Expect to resume your normal daily activities right after the procedure. Results from neurotoxin injections are usually noticeable within 3-10 days and generally last about 3-4 months. The most common side effects include localized swelling and bruising which usually resides within 24 to 48 hours.
