Botox & Neurotoxinsin Rochester, MI
At Front Door MedSpa™, our Rochester, MI aesthetic specialists are proud to offer injectable neurotoxin treatments to boost your self-confidence and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Neurotoxins, such as Botox/Xeomin/Jeuveau/Dysport, are injectables that temporarily block nerve receptors in the muscle preventing lines and wrinkles from forming. Neurotoxins can smooth lines in the forehead, between the brows, and many other places. Neurotoxins can be used to slim the jawline, and help with excessive sweating and clenching and grinding of the teeth. It can drop a lip for a gummy smile and help frown lines.

As well as Micro tox which is used to reduce flushing or reduce crepe skin.
The effects of neurotoxins will vary from person to person, but most will see the best preventative results when they receive treatment once every three months at our Rochester med spa.

Safety and Efficiency of Botox and Neurotoxins
What Is Botox?
Botox is a popular cosmetic injectable treatment that helps temporarily reduce the appearance of all kinds of wrinkles. Common reasons for Botox include:
- Crow’s feet
- Fine lines
- Neck bands
- Gummy smiles
- Frown lines
- Lip wrinkles
- Forehead wrinkles
- Mad face
- Wide jaw
- Excessive sweating of the underarms, palms, and soles of feet
Botox works by targeting and blocking the nerves that signal muscles to contract. Without the muscles’ ability to tighten, your face will take on a smoother, more youthful appearance.
