Understanding Neurotoxin Injectables: Types, Treatment Procedures, Results, and Side Effects

Types of Neurotoxin Injectables

Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A):

  • The most well-known neurotoxin injectable.

  •  Commonly used for forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines.


  • Similar to Botox but has a different formulation.

  • Often used for larger treatment areas due to its tendency to spread more.


  • A purified form of botulinum toxin type A without accessory proteins.

  •  Suitable for patients who may be allergic to other injectables.


  •  The newest neurotoxin injectable.

  • Primarily aimed at treating glabellar lines (the lines between the eyebrows).

Treatment Procedure


  • A consultation with a licensed practitioner at Nur Med Spa to discuss your goals, medical history, and any allergies.


  • The practitioner cleans the treatment area and may apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort.


  • Using a fine needle, the neurotoxin is injected into the targeted muscles.

  • The procedure typically takes about 10-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.


  • Patients should avoid strenuous activities, lying down, or massaging the treated area for at least 24 hours.

  • Follow-up appointments may be scheduled to assess the results and make any necessary adjustments.

Expected Results

  • Initial Effects: Results are usually visible within 3-5 days, with the full effect appearing in about two weeks.

  •  Duration: The effects typically last 3-6 months, after which the treatment can be repeated.

  • Appearance: A smoother, more youthful appearance with reduced wrinkles and fine lines.

Potential Side Effects

While neurotoxin injectables are generally safe, some side effects can occur:

Common Side Effects:

  •  Redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site.

  • Temporary headache or flu-like symptoms.

Rare but Serious Side Effects:

  • Muscle weakness.

  • Difficulty swallowing or breathing.
