What are Neurotoxins?

While we all may wish we could look young forever, our bodies will all inevitably begin to show signs of aging. Neurotoxins are a modern way to combat this issue and make your skin look as tight and soft as ever. They utilize botulinum toxin type A in order to temporarily paralyze the muscles in the targeted area for cosmetic effect. Typically, these injections can reduce the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines found on the face. At Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX, we’re committed to providing the results of your dreams. Schedule a consultation today to discuss your options regarding neurotoxins.

ARE NEUROTOXINS RIGHT FOR ME?

Neurotoxin injections are great for men and women who hope to nonsurgically diminish and soften the look of any wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their upper face. They can be used as an anti-aging treatment, preventing wrinkles that have not yet formed. Neurotoxins are a great nonsurgical treatment if you have obvious forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the brows. It could also be a solution for Crow’s feet around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a combination of a neurotoxin and filler may be more suitable. Keep in mind, if you are older with severe wrinkles, you may be a candidate for a facelift, which offers a more impactful result and longer-lasting results.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF NEUROTOXINS?

There are countless types of neurotoxins. However, at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we focus on two: BOTOX® and Jeuveau®.

BOTOX is the original neurotoxin to be approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. It has continued to be the most popular treatment option due to its effectiveness, low molecular weight, and safety.

Jeuveau is a relatively new addition to the world of neurotoxins, becoming FDA approved in February 2019. Despite its age, it has quickly become a popular option for numerous patients around the world.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER NEUROTOXINS?

Following your injection of BOTOX or Jeuveau, you should be able to get back to your daily activities, although strenuous activities, like exercise, should be postponed for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep upright for at least one night and to not touch your face, as this can accidentally spread the neurotoxin to other areas of your face. The injected sections of the face may be slightly red, swollen, or bruised for a few days, but you should not have any serious or lasting side effects. In most cases, it takes around 5 – 7 days before the full effects of the injection are visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. Speak with Dr. Hanz to decide when you should make a follow-up appointment to refresh your results.

How many neurotoxin treatments will I likely need?

The number of injections given will vary based on individual goals and the extent of your facial wrinkles and lines. Dr. Hanz can recommend the appropriate number of BOTOX units based on your aesthetic desires and whether you wish to treat the Crow’s feet, brow area, or forehead. To prolong your aesthetic outcomes, our practitioners could recommend scheduling BOTOX every 3 – 4 months at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Can I combine neurotoxins with additional aesthetic procedures?

Neurotoxins pair well with other solutions at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery for patients who prefer to minimize aging concerns. If you experience more extensive and pronounced facial lines, we may recommend administering a filler to help you achieve smoother outcomes. To further improve a youthful, radiant appearance, Dr. Hanz could perform additional complementary treatments, like PRP with microneedling or facials.

What is Lipo AI?

LipoAI's  involves identifying fat without immediate extraction, allowing Dr. Hanz to precisely target and dissolve fat cells while preserving surrounding tissues. This targeted approach not only minimizes bodily trauma and reduces the risk of vascular or nerve damage but also promotes skin tightening for smoother, more natural-looking results. By liquefying fat prior to removal, the procedure ensures a gentler extraction process, contributing to enhanced patient comfort and expedited post-operative recovery.

What is Renuvion®?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if Lipo ai is right for me?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure. Renuvion is an amazing non-surgical solution for reducing wrinkles and rhytides, but it’s not for everybody. This procedure requires recovery time and is not recommended for patients with darker skin tones but is limited to patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I, II, or III. Dr. Kevin Hanz will talk to you about your goals, your lifestyle, and whether Renuvion is the right option for you.

What can Lipo ai Treat?

LipoAI can treat various areas of the body where excess fat accumulates, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, back, buttocks, and submental region (under the chin). It's effective for both large and small areas, providing precise contouring and skin tightening.

    How does Lipo ai work?

    Lipo AI skin tightening treatment works by using laser energy to target the deeper layers of the skin. The laser heats the collagen fibers in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting tighter, smoother skin over time.

    Why is this treatment good for my skin?

    This treatment is beneficial for the skin because it stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve skin elasticity and firmness. It also promotes cell renewal, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance.

    Will I be asleep during the Lipo AI treatment?

    Lipo AI does not require a patient to be asleep or undergo general anesthesia. The procedure may be completed with a patient awake. Patients are given a light sedative to feel more relaxed and insure a pleasant, comfortable experience. Many of our patients prefer to avoid general anesthesia and really appreciate the awake approach. Having said that, we do offer the possibility of full anesthesia for those patients that may prefer to be more asleep during the procedure.

    What should I expect during the recovery time?

    During the recovery period, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. The recovery typically involves significantly less down time than other forms of Liposuction. Symptoms are usually mild and most patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. Patients may appreciate initial results in as little as 2-3 days, though maximum benefits may take several weeks to months to become fully apparent as the body heals and remodels.
