If you’ve never had toxin before and really need the down and dirty, keep reading!! Getting toxin for the first time can be scary! It’s expensive, and let’s be honest it’s YOUR FACE! So let me at least give you some of the facts to help put your mind at ease a little bit!
What are toxins?
This is a neuromodulator that is injected into the muscles of the face to temporarily relax them. Think of this as your *wrinkle relaxer*. Works only on the muscles! Our goal is always expression without wrinkles! Unless you don’t want your face to move, we can do that too!
Toxin Brand Names
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, are the most commonly used toxins. They all work the same but are manufactured differently so choosing the most appropriate one for you should be discussed with your provider!
Where Are Toxins Used?
This is used in areas of expression like your forehead, between your brows, and around your eyes, and some other more uncommon areas like around the lips, underarms, and lower face.
How Long Do Toxins Last? When Do Toxins Kick In?
It takes on average about 1 week to start working, full results seen at 2 weeks and lasts about 3-4 months.
The Sweet Spot
After consistent use, every 3 months, for at least a year-ish, your dose of toxin may slowly decrease because your muscles stay continuously relaxed. THIS is the goal!
How Much Do Toxins Cost?
Will vary based on where you go, but don’t go to the cheapest – you’re also paying for your provider, their experience, and continued education. These are some common area pricing guesstimates. Your dose will depend on the strength of your own muscles, so prices can vary person to person.
