What are botulinum toxins?
Often referred to as “Botox,” the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin is an injectable that temporarily reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Injections are typically done on the forehead, between the eyes, and around the eyes. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve signals to the muscle in your target area. Without these signals, the muscle isn’t able to contract—which softens or prevents wrinkles. At St. Luke’s, Botox and other injectables are administered by trained professionals who will develop a treatment plan to meet your goals.
Common types of botulinum toxin injections include Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin. Though they all temporarily prevent muscle from moving, each product is slightly different. To find the best option for you, schedule a consultation with St. Luke’s Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
