Neurotoxins are an FDA approved treatment performed in our Houston, TX, facility. It is used to promote the relaxation of the muscles that cause wrinkles in areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. They block the signal from nerves that move certain facial muscles. Without the movement of the muscles, the skin over them is smooth and the wrinkles are less prominent.
Off-label use of neurotoxin can be used to treat a gummy smile, give the lip a more prominent appearance (lip flip), decrease mild frown lines, treat large jaw muscles (masseter), and create a brow lift. This is why it is imperative to do your research before scheduling an appointment with anyone who is not a certified injector or physician. Dr. Regina Rodman, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, is not only an expert in surgical procedures, but she is also an expert in injectables and fillers.
Neurotoxins can also aid in the reduction of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in areas such as the hands and underarms.
Lastly, neurotoxin can be used to treat facial spasm of unknown reason or as a result of Bell’s Palsy. Bell’s Palsy is a condition caused by a virus that leaves one side of the face weak or paralyzed. Usually, it will improve over time but sometimes the nerves get mixed up during the healing process. These patients often complain that their eyes close when they smile or move their mouth. They may also have tightness on one side of the face or neck that can cause discomfort. Dr. Rodman and her nurse injector can also balance the unaffected side to more closely match the weak side.
We carry three types of neurotoxins that are all the same type of drug (botulinum), just different brands. Your Botox/Dysport will be performed in Dr. Regina Rodman‘s surgery center located in Houston, TX.
Neurotoxins last for approximately 3-6 months, and the procedure takes 30 minutes in the office. There is no downtime and normal activities can be resumed immediately.
The cost of Botox and Dysport vary from patient to patient. Factors we take into consideration are the degree of correction required and the number of units needs to achieve the desired results. We will customize a treatment plan to address your needs and discuss the associate cost during your consultation.
