November Q&A: MicroTox
Posted October 28, 2020
Our nurses spent a day training in our office last month with Leslie Fletcher, Nurse Practitioner, and owner of the InjectAbility Institute in Torrance, California. They worked on new injectable techniques such as advanced contouring of the jawline, MicroTox, and NaselTox.
What is MicroTox?
MicroTox was developed through the Injectability Institute and describes a procedure that “sprinkles” small amounts of muscle relaxers, such as Botox ® or Dysport ®, around the face to offer a more subtle, yet effective result. Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. The MicroTox injection technique will allow the muscles to relax but they will not be completely frozen. Some movement remains along with the ability to create facial expressions which provides a very natural-looking result.
Who is a Candidate?
Anyone looking to have smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin may be a candidate for MicroTox.
What is the Process Involved?
A brief consultation with one of our MicroTox® trained nurse injectors is required prior to the treatment. The size and location of your treatment area will be evaluated with a typical treatment lasting around 30 minutes. Small injections are “sprinkled” around the face to restore a youthful, sculpted look. There is no lengthy recovery time needed. Patients may resume their daily activity or return to work immediately after being treated.
Results Appear Instantly!
The MicroTox® technique involves injecting directly into the superficial dermis layer, with visible results as soon as you leave the office. Your skin will look younger and smoother after the procedure rather than the typical wait time required for Botox results. Results may not last as long as a full dosed Botox® but because of the difference in units used, may be considered a more reasonable option.
