You've heard of Botox. This is the family of injections of which Botox is one type. There are actually other brands on the market including Xeomin, Dysport, and Jeuveau. At Elevated Natural Health, we offer Botox, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.
Neurotoxin injections are cosmetic procedures that use purified toxins to temporarily relax muscles. These injections work by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where they are applied, inhibiting the muscle's ability to contract, and thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The most common areas for neurotoxin injections include the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabella complex or "elevens"), and around the eyes ("crow's feet). The procedure is minimally invasive, providing a non-surgical option for individuals seeking a smoother, more youthful appearance. It's important to consult with a qualified practitioner to ensure safe and effective results tailored to your aesthetic goals.

Do I need Botox or PRP Microneedling? What's the difference?
Botox (neurotoxin) injections and PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) microneedling are distinct cosmetic procedures with different mechanisms and purposes.
Purpose: Primarily used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by temporarily relaxing muscles.
Mechanism: Neurotoxins block the nerve signals in targeted muscles, preventing them from contracting and causing wrinkles temporarily. This does not eliminate the static (deep) wrinkles, but it does help the dynamic (smaller, superficial) wrinkles.
Application: Commonly used in areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows (the "elevens"), and around the eyes ("crows feet").
Purpose: Aims to improve skin texture, tone, and stimulate collagen production for overall skin rejuvenation. This can be really helpful for filling in areas of deficit (loss of collagen) and to help heal the static (deep) wrinkles. There is also benefit for the dynamic wrinkles (the superficial ones) as well. Microneedling is also especially helpful for acne scaring.
Mechanism: Involves using a device with tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin. Platelet-Rich Plasma, derived from the patient's blood, is applied through the procedure to enhance healing and promote collagen formation. PRP is long known for its healing and rejuvenation qualities for all types of issues in the body (cardiac surgeries, facial reconstructive surgeries, etc).
Application: Addresses a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, acne scars, dark spots/melasma, collagen loss, and overall skin quality.
In summary, Botox and other neurotoxins focus on muscle relaxation to diminish wrinkles, while PRP microneedling stimulates collagen and improves skin texture through controlled micro-injuries and the application of platelet-rich plasma. The choice between them depends on your specific aesthetic goals and concerns. Many patients will choose a combination of these therapies to maximize their skin health and overall look. Consulting with a qualified practitioner can help determine the most suitable approach for you.
