Neurotoxins are injectable solutions that prevent lines and wrinkles from forming by blocking muscle nerve receptors. Neurotoxins reduce fine lines and wrinkles by targeting underlying causes such as repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting. Your injector will inject the neurotoxins into the muscles to pause muscle activity.

Neurotoxin injections are safe and quick, require little recovery time, and have few side effects. Results typically become visible in about 72 hours, with full results appearing in 1-2 weeks. The effects of muscle relaxation last for approximately 3-4 months after injection.

Neurotoxin is for you if…

You want to address fine lines and wrinkles

Neurotoxin (a.k.a. Botox) is most known for smoothing texture, fine lines, and wrinkles. It is also used to prevent deep-set wrinkles from developing.

You want to look rested & refreshed

We can use neurotoxin to give you a subtle lift to make you appear more youthful, rested, and rejuvenated.

You want to enhance your smile

We use neurotoxin to correct a gummy smile by relaxing your upper lip from curling under, giving the effect of showing less gum when you smile.

You’re looking for non-cosmetic neurotoxin treatments

This includes but is not limited to TMJ pain, chronic migraines, plantar fasciitis, etc.

How to prepare for neurotoxin treatment And what to expect

  • Avoid alcohol and blood thinners 2-3 days before if possible.
  • Optional to take oral arnica 5 days prior to help prevent bruising.
  • How should I prepare for my Neurotoxin treatment:
    • –For 7-10 days before your procedure, do not take aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Advil, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Fish oil, Nuprin®, Aleve®, Ginkgo Biloba, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of vitamin E. These may increase any bleeding and bruising risks.
      –Alcohol should be avoided 24 hours before the procedure to prevent bleeding and bruising at the treated site(s).
      –Do not wax, bleach, tweeze, or use hair removal cream on the treated area(s).
      –You can take Tylenol® (if not contraindicated) 1 hour before your appointment to ease any discomfort you may feel.
      –Sunburned skin is difficult to treat so you should avoid any exposure to the sun.
      –Be sure to tell your provider about all medications you are taking, including supplements and your medical history.
  • At the Skin Clinic, we offer topical numbing for all neurotoxin patients.
  • If you’re a first-timer, feeling a little nervous is completely normal.
  • Our first time neurotoxin patients always say the injections are nowhere near as bad as they envisioned in their heads.
  • We use a distractor tool and several techniques that make your visit virtually pain free.
  • What should I expect during treatment:
    After cleaning the treatment areas, the neurotoxin is gently injected in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. It is possible for the injection sites to be tender and swollen.
  • Bruising is always a possibility, but we use several advanced techniques and products to avoid bruising.
  • What To Avoid 24 Hours After Treatment:
    – Exercise
    – Flights
    – Tight-fitting hats or headbands
    – Dentist appointments
    – Massages or facials
    Understand that your results take two full weeks to kick in, and your muscles have to adjust. We will see you 2-3 weeks post-treatment to assess your results and make tweaks if needed. Trust the process!”


Neurotoxin is a prescription medication and should be treated as such. Proper dosing, knowledge of anatomy, patient education, and a personalized and customized approach for each patient is what sets the professionals at the SavvyDerm Skin Clinic above the rest. We don’t do “cookie cutter” neurotoxin treatments at the SavvyDerm Skin Clinic. Every treatment is individualized to that patient’s unique anatomy and goals, and the results speak for themselves with our 5-start reviews, breathtaking before and after photos, and patient retention.
Everyone is different! Certain muscle groups kick in at different times slowly, and it is settled in 2-3 weeks. I see first time neurotoxin patients 2-3 weeks after their treatment to assess their result and do a touch up if needed. Trust the process and your injector!
All neurotoxin works by temporarily (for up to 3-4 months) blocking chemical signals from allowing your muscles to animate as strongly as before. This relaxes the muscles, which results in a softening of fine lines and wrinkles.
Generally speaking, the effects last between three and four months, with each patient’s body reacting differently. The results last for some a little longer, for others a little shorter. Gradually, muscle activity and deeper furrows and wrinkles will be restored in the treatment area. Repeat treatments with neuromodulators are safe, allowing patients to maintain their desired look over time.
Every patient is different, but the anticipation of what you think it will be is always the worst part. For extra peace of mind, we offer topical numbing to provide a pain-free experience.
Our approach is very natural when it comes to neurotoxin or any treatment at the SavvyDerm Skin Clinic. The goal is never to make someone look “frozen.” We use neurotoxin to enhance your natural features to create beautiful results that still look like you.
Your neurotoxin wears off very slowly. Your face will not “droop” or “fall down” once it wears off, you will simply return to your baseline of what you looked like before treatment.
