What is BOTOX and Neurotoxins?
Neurotoxins (wrinkle relaxers) and BOTOX® are nonsurgical injectable treatments utilized to treat fine lines and wrinkles that happen as a result of frequent muscle movements. They work to reduce signs of aging, like forehead creases, Crow's feet surrounding the eyes, and "11" lines between the eyebrows. Wrinkle relaxers are formulated with a specialized form of botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily blocks movement in the facial muscles. As time passes, the existence of wrinkles is lessened when the skin is able to heal and rejuvenate naturally. At Beautiful Skin Denver, we provide several kinds of wrinkle relaxers, including BOTOX and Jeuveau® to help meet your unique needs. Our staff is extensively skilled in producing natural-looking results through neurotoxin treatments at our Denver, CO practice.
What Are the Benefits of neurotoxins?
Furrows and wrinkles on your brow and between the eyes might make you appear more aged than you truly are. Neurotoxins are utilized to help minimize the appearance of such concerns by briefly limiting the capacity to change facial movements. A wrinkle relaxer injection at Beautiful Skin Denver comes with further benefits for Denver, CO patients, such as:
- Treating forehead wrinkles, Crow's feet, and frown lines around the eyes
- Providing a newly refreshed appearance
- Temporarily halting the development of lines
- Fast, noninvasive treatment
- No recovery time needed following your procedure
- Outcomes look natural and can last for as long as 3 – 6 months
Are neurotoxins Right for Me?
Neurotoxin treatments are ideal for patients who desire to soften the appearance of wrinkles and creases high up on the face without undergoing a surgical procedure. Sometimes, neurotoxins, such as BOTOX®, are used for younger individuals (including patients in their 20s) who hope to prevent signals of aging in general. Our skilled team will discuss the details of every selection and work with you to figure out the wrinkle relaxer that is best for your needs. If you wish to correct deep-set creases, a dermal filler might be used to supplement your wrinkle relaxer injections.
Neurotoxins We offer at Beautiful Skin Denver
Neurotoxins are commonly used in areas of facial expression – crow’s feet, furrows between our browns and forehead lines. They work by inhibiting the contraction of your muscle in and around those “problem areas.” Great for smoothing and diminishing lines, while also preventing the increased intensity of those lines as we age.

What Is a neurotoxin and BOTOX Treatment Like?
During your detailed exam at our Denver, CO office, our staff will decide which wrinkle relaxer product is ideal for you and your cosmetic desires. We conduct neurotoxin injections as an in-office treatment, which can be carried out the same day as your initial visit. You will be asked to make different facial expressions using the top part of your face. This allows us to deliver the treatment in the right area. First, we cleanse the skin, mark the treatment sites, and insert a thin needle to administer the injections. To minimize tenderness and bruising, we apply a cold compress immediately following the treatment. Based upon the selected formula and number of injections, your treatment may take about 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can resume your typical day.
What Should I Expect After My Treatment?
You might have a bit of mild swelling, bruising, and redness in the treatment areas, but these symptoms typically subside in a few days. Our aesthetic team may recommend that you avoid vigorous exercise and that you do not touch the treated areas of your face for a day or so. After 2 – 3 days, you should begin to experience smoother, firmer skin. Neurotoxin treatments may offer up to 3 – 6 months (depending on the brand) of natural-looking, youthful aesthetic improvements for the majority of people. Our team will determine how often you need treatments as part of a personalized plan to help you meet your cosmetic goals and maintain results.

How many neurotoxin/BOTOX units will I need?
The quantity of wrinkle relaxer units needed will be different depending on your own concerns and the extent of your facial wrinkles and creases. Our team will recommend the appropriate number of injections based upon your desired aesthetic goals and if you want to address Crow's feet, the brow, or the space between the eyes. To rejuvenate your newly restored look, our team might recommend scheduling injections every 3 – 6 months apart at Beautiful Skin Denver.
Are neurotoxin treatments painful?
As is the case with many injection-based treatments, patients will experience a slight poking sensation as the injection is administered. Note that this feeling only persists a few seconds, so the majority of patients find that this minor sensation is very tolerable. Our professionals will help ensure you stay relaxed during the course of your treatment. If you like, we can offer an anesthetic cream to make your procedure more enjoyable.
Is there a difference between dermal fillers and neurotoxins?
Both neurotoxins and dermal fillers work to you look younger, but they both function in their own way. Neurotoxins, such as BOTOX, briefly immobilize the facial muscles to smooth shallow furrows and wrinkles. Dermal fillers, meanwhile, add fullness to hollow facial areas and fill out deep-set lines. Our team can speak more regarding the advantages of dermal fillers and neurotoxins during a consultation at our Denver, CO facility.
How do I prepare for my appointment with neurotoxins?
We recommend washing your face and avoiding the use of any harsh skincare products before your neurotoxin appointment. Beautiful Skin Denver also advises scheduling your session at least two weeks prior to any big social events you have planned, as it may take up to a week for the full results to be visible. Patients with active lesions, rashes, or infections in the treatment should hold off until these issues have been resolved.
How do I care for my skin after neurotoxin treatment?
Denver, CO patients should avoid rubbing or touching their faces for a short period following neurotoxin treatment. We also advise keeping your skin hydrated and applying a cool compress if any areas become tender or swollen. You should also avoid strenuous exercise and direct sunlight, as these activities can increase redness and sensitivity in the skin.
How long does an appointment with neurotoxins last?
Your neurotoxin appointment should take less than an hour, but the length of time depends on the extent of your facial wrinkles and desired results. Be sure to give yourself enough time to consult with our team about your aesthetic goals and expectations. This conversation allows us to create a tailored treatment plan to achieve your ideal look.
