Toxin is the name you would used if you were describing all of these brands, Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Nuceiva. They are all forms of Toxin and they are all a great option for a wrinkle relaxing treatment. Over time, our fine lines and wrinkles give us an older appearance, older than we feel. We inject toxin in small amounts into those muscles to relax them, this will soften the muscle and give us a more youthful appearance. Toxin is most commonly used in the face and neck muscles.
Nuceiva or Xeomin blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles, causing the muscles to relax. Those muscles that have been injected can no longer contract how they did prior to being injected. The results of these injections last about three to four months, as our nerves do regenerate those signals. With ongoing injection, the muscles do become adjusted to that relaxed state and therefore, the fine lines and wrinkles become less severe.
The most common areas injected are the forehead lines, crows feet, the area between the eyes(commonly known as the 11's). With Xeomin and Nuceiva, you will notice the results within five to seven days, however, it will take a full fourteen days for full results.
