How Safe is Neurotoxin?

You’ve always been intrigued by the idea of getting Neurotoxin – and you’re not alone.

Since it was first approved by the FDA in the late 1990s, Neurotoxin has been transforming people around the world by minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines, and even crow’s feet.

Neurotoxin is so popular, in fact, that it remains one of the most popular anti-aging injectable treatments available on the market today.

But there may be one thing holding you back from experiencing the benefits of Neurotoxin for yourself: worry over its safety.

So exactly how safe is Neurotoxin?

How Safe is Neurotoxin?

Neurotoxin has been tested in multiple clinical trials around the world. 

In fact, did you know that the first iteration of Neurotoxin made its appearance in the 1980s? That means it went through over a decade of research and testing before it was approved by the FDA for the treatment of forehead wrinkles and lines.

More research is coming in about the safety and efficacy of Neurotoxin – plus, it’s being studied for other uses as well. For example, Neurotoxin is currently FDA-approved for the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and migraines.

And more Neurotoxin benefits are waiting to be discovered!

With so much clinical research and testing, Neurotoxin is one of the most thoroughly vetted and approved anti-aging treatments.

What is Neurotoxin Made of?

Neurotoxin is made of a safe derivative of botulinum toxin. That “toxin” might make you think that it’s not safe, but the truth is that Neurotoxin uses a naturally occurring compound to block the brain’s signals to treat forehead and eyebrow muscles.

This is how Neurotoxin works: When those brain signals are interrupted, the treated muscles relax, leading to a smoother and softer appearance at the injection site. That’s because Neurotoxin tells the treated muscles to stop responding to subconscious movements, like squinting, furrowing the brow, and more. 

That means your forehead lines and wrinkles look a lot more relaxed, which can take years off of your overall appearance!

What Side Effects Does Neurotoxin Have?

After your Neurotoxin injection, you may feel slight sensitivity and tenderness at the injection site. Some clients do experience minor bleeding, but this side effect tends to go away after a few hours.

Most clients can expect to see their results within one to two weeks after their Neurotoxin treatment. These results can last three to four months. Regular Neurotoxin users may find that their results last a little longer – five to six months, to be exact.
