Experience the transformative power of Neurotoxin Injectables
What it is
Neurotoxins are injectable treatments used in aesthetic medicine to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We currently offer Botox® and Dysport® treatments.
Botox and Dysport are brand names for Botulinum toxin type A, a purified substance derived from bacteria. Botox is commonly used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye), and frown lines. Dysport, while similar to Botox aesthetics, is often used for treating lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows.
Both Botox and Dysport treatments are relatively quick and require no downtime, making them convenient options for those seeking non-surgical anti-aging solutions.
Whether you’re seeking a subtle reduction in wrinkles or a more comprehensive rejuvenation, Botox treatments in Galveston, Texas, can be your gateway to a renewed sense of confidence and youthful radiance. So, take a deep breath of the salty air, bask in the coastal tranquility, and embark on your journey towards a brighter, more beautiful you.
How it works
Botox and Dysport work by blocking the nerve signals to specific muscles where they are injected, causing a temporary relaxation of those muscles. The mechanism of action of these neurotoxins involves inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for triggering muscle contractions. By preventing the release of acetylcholine, these neurotoxins cause a type of flaccid paralysis in the targeted muscles. This results in a reduction of facial lines and wrinkles that are caused by repeated muscle contractions, such as those occurring during facial expressions.
The effects of Botox and Dysport are temporary and typically last three to four months. As the nerves slowly regenerate, they will eventually reestablish contact with the muscle, causing it to contract again and leading to the reappearance of wrinkles. To maintain the smooth appearance of the skin, regular treatments are required.

Transform with the touch of Dermal Fillers
What it is
Dermal fillers, also known as injectable implants, soft tissue fillers, or wrinkle fillers, are used to help create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face, including nasolabial folds, cheeks, and lips, and to increase the volume of the back of the hand. We currently offer Restylane® filler treatments.
Dermal fillers like Restylane are injectable substances used to add volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane is a popular type of dermal filler that is based on hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our skin that helps keep it plump and hydrated. As we age, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases, leading to loss of volume and the formation of wrinkles.
How it works
Restylane works by mimicking Hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in our skin, to help fill wrinkles and provide volume in areas such as the lips, cheeks, and under the eyes. It can also be used to improve the contour of the face and enhance facial features.
One of the defining characteristics of Restylane is its more granular consistency, which some practitioners prefer for filling deeper lines and wrinkles. The effects of Restylane treatments can last anywhere from six months to a year, depending on the specific product used and the area treated.
Rediscover the magic of collagen with Sculptra®
What it is
Sculptra is a type of injectable dermal filler that is designed to help reduce the appearance of deep facial wrinkles and folds. It contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), an FDA-approved synthetic, biodegradable substance.
When Sculptra is injected into the skin, the PLLA microparticles are gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and help to rebuild lost collagen. This process helps reinforce the skin’s inner structure and increases facial volume loss due to aging.
How it works
Sculptra works somewhat differently than traditional fillers that provide immediate results by filling in wrinkles or adding volume. It acts as a bio-stimulator, triggering your body to produce its own collagen, a protein that keeps our skin firm and elastic. This process leads to a more gradual and natural-looking skin quality and volume improvement.
The treatment is quick, usually lasting several minutes to one hour, depending on the area being treated. The effects of Sculptra can last for up to two years, making it one of the longer-lasting dermal fillers available.

What is Botox treatment?
Botox is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In its cosmetic applications, it acts as a neuromodulator, temporarily relaxing targeted facial muscles.
