Our Westlake clinic offers several treatments that can help you feel more confident in your skin. One of our most popular services is neurotoxin injections.
In our Westlake office, neurotoxin injections are used as muscle relaxants by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that signals muscle contractions. When injected into specific muscles, Neurotoxins temporarily paralyze those muscles, resulting in relaxation and a reduction in muscle activity. This reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines, ultimately smoothing out the skin leading to a more youthful and healthy-looking skin.
Neurotoxin injections are not just for forehead wrinkles or crow's feet. This treatment can help with frown lines, glabella wrinkles (between the eyebrows), bunny lines (on the side of the nose), and marionette lines. In additional to smoothing the skin, our medical team in Westlake may use neurotoxin injections to address other concerns.
Swelling caused by fluid under the skin may initially occur after receiving treatment. However, a patient can expect to see some results within 24 to 48 hours, though it can take up to 14 days for the full effects to show. Most patients who undergo neurotoxin injections in our clinic in Cleveland typically report a reduction in wrinkles for 3 to 4 months. However, results vary, with some patients’ results lasting for 2 months, while others may have success with injections for up to 6 months.
