What are Neurotoxins?
Neurotoxins are injectable treatments that temporarily disable nerve signals from being transmitted in the body. Neurotoxin injections are primarily used to address wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. These areas develop wrinkles due to repeated muscle movements in the face. When neurotoxins are used in these areas, the muscles relax as the nerves cannot trigger muscle contractions. This diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, leading to a more youthful look. At Bednar Cosmetic Surgery, we may recommend one of the following neurotoxin products:
What are the Benefits of Neurotoxins?

How Much Do Neurotoxins Cost in Charlotte, NC?
The cost of neurotoxins can vary depending on the product used and the number of injections needed to satisfy a patient’s cosmetic goals. At Bednar Cosmetic Surgery, we encourage patients to come in for a cosmetic consultation so that we can discuss their goals and develop a personalized treatment plan. Then, we are able to provide the exact costs associated with neurotoxin injectables. In most cases, we recommend Jeuveau® because it costs, on average, about 25% less than Botox® and other neurotoxin injectables.
What is the Neurotoxin Injection Treatment Like?
The neurotoxin treatment takes only a few minutes to perform. Prior to treatment, we can apply a topical anesthetic to the skin to numb the treatment area and minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. To perform treatment, the neurotoxin formula will be injected into and around the areas where wrinkles exist. Thanks to the topical anesthetic, most patients feel only a small pinch upon injection. Once the injections have been performed, the treatment is complete.
Do Neurotoxin Injections Have Side Effects?
Neurotoxin injectables typically cause minor swelling, bruising and redness in the treatment area. Fortunately, these side effects are quick to subdue, usually lasting just a few days. This means that patients are able to return to work and other activities immediately after treatment, although some may choose to limit social activities while the skin returns to normal.
What Do Neurotoxin Injection Results Look Like?
The results from neurotoxin injections can take a few days to become noticeable. It can take up to one week for the neurotoxin to fully take effect in the body, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t notice immediate results. As the results become visible, patients will notice a smoother, more relaxed appearance in the face. Results typically last for 3-4 months, after which time patients can receive additional treatments to maintain their results.
