In youth, this wrinkling is only present when the muscles are active. But over time, the wrinkling can become more pronounced and permanent. The more we smile or express ourselves, the deeper the lines become. But there is a way to combat the formation of these lines. Using Neurotoxin Cosmetic injections, you can restore a more youthful smoothness to your features. Modern medicine allows us to keep our appearance more youthful, to match how we feel inside. By maintaining a lively appearance, we can continue to be self-confident in how we look. Visit us for the best facial cosmetic surgery Denver has to offer.

Neurotoxin Cosmetic Injections

Neurotoxin Cosmetic is an FDA-approved protein administered into over-active facial muscles. It can help smooth lines and creases in the brow area by temporarily inhibiting the muscles that cause wrinkling. When done by an expert, it delivers a refreshed and younger-looking appearance.

Neurotoxin Cosmetic injection is the most common physician-administered cosmetic procedure nationwide. In fact, more than 13 million Neurotoxin Cosmetic injections have been performed since 2002.

What is Neurotoxin Cosmetic?

Neurotoxin Cosmetic is a protein isolated from bacteria. When injected, it has the unique ability to soften the action of target muscles. Specifically, it decreases the actions of muscles that cause facial wrinkles. As you use these muscles less, you prevent them from causing facial wrinkles in the first place.

You can also use Neurotoxin to soften existing wrinkles. As the muscles work less, your body will naturally restore your skin to a smoother state.

Is Neurotoxin Cosmetic safe?

Yes, Neurotoxin Cosmetic is safe.  It has been FDA approved for cosmetic use since 2002. Before that time, it was used by ophthalmologists for medical indications under FDA approval since 1989.

Still, you should only receive injections from an experienced doctor. A board-certified surgeon like Dr. McCracken will be able to deliver safe, stunning results. An inexperienced practitioner could leave you unhappy with results, or even unsafe.

How long does Neurotoxin Cosmetic last?

The duration of action of Neurotoxin Cosmetic varies from patient to patient. Usually, the effect lasts 3-4 months. Factors that determine how long it lasts include:

  • How active you are
  • Location of injection
  • Number of injections
  • Severity of wrinkles

What happens when the Neurotoxin Cosmetic wears off?

When the effects of the Neurotoxin Cosmetic wear off, your face will return to what it was like before the treatment. This means that your muscle activity and wrinkles will return.

Will I become “addicted” to Neurotoxin Cosmetic?

Patients do not become addicted to Neurotoxin Cosmetic. But most patients like the effect so much that they will want regular treatments. However, Dr. McCracken is careful to ensure every injection is at a safe level.

What are the side effects of Neurotoxin?

The most common side effect is a bruise at the injection site. However, this is only seen in a minority of patients. Even if it does appear, it soon fades within days. Other possible side effects of Neurotoxin Cosmetic include:

  • Asymmetry
  • Headache
  • Mild flu-like symptoms
  • Dry eye
  • Double vision
  • Droopy eyelids

These are all rare and temporary. To minimize the risk of side effects, we advise seeing an experienced expert. Dr. McCracken has years of practice in delivering safe and transformative cosmetic treatments. With his knowledge and skill, any risks are kept to a minimum.
