Myobloc is a skin-smoothing modulator in a class of its own. Unlike BOTOX, which smooths skin with botulinum type A, Myobloc has been developed from botulinum type B. This injectable is an alternative anti-aging treatment for people who are not getting results from BOTOX or the other well-known neuromodulators.

How does Myobloc work?

BOTOX is the #1 cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. It is a purified protein derived from the Botulinum toxin that is used in small amounts to relax facial muscles. The results of the treatment last as long as four months and can last longer with further treatments.

Compared to other cosmetic treatments, BOTOX is relatively inexpensive and works well for forehead lines, crow’s feet and lazy eye. After targeted treatment, muscles no longer contract, and wrinkles soften, as a result of how the protein blocks nerve impulses.

Am I a good candidate for Myobloc?

If you see the signs of aging skin, with fine lines and wrinkles appearing on your brow, between the eyebrows, or crow’s feet, and have a resistance to other neuromodulators, including BOTOX, Dysport, or Xeomin, you may be a candidate for Myobloc. Candidates for injections with Myobloc should be in good general physical health, over 18, and not pregnant or breastfeeding.

How does Myobloc differ from BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin?

BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin are the most recognized brands of anti-aging injectables, all of which were developed from botulinum toxin A. They work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. While Myobloc is derived from the same anaerobic bacteria, clostridium botulinum, Myobloc was formulated from a different strain. While similar in origin and usage, Myobloc is an excellent alternative treatment if you are getting no results from the other neuromodulators on the market. Myobloc has another distinct advantage: It works faster, with results appearing within 24 to 48 hours after treatment.

How does Myobloc differ from Jeuveau?

Jeuveau is a very new treatment on the market, also developed from the clostridium botulinum bacteria, but the same strain as in BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin. It was recently approved for cosmetic use by the FDA. As BOTOX and Jeuveau are very similar, Myobloc may be a superior choice if you have developed a resistance to the type A neuromodulators, whether Jeuveau or another brand.

What can I expect from Myobloc treatment?

During your Myobloc treatment, you can relax in the private, luxurious atmosphere at Northside Plastic Surgery. Our expert injector will use a very fine needle to inject Myobloc in precise quantities to the targeted area. The treatment takes only a few minutes to complete, and within a day or two you can enjoy the effect of Myobloc, with your skin looking smoother and more youthful. After your Myobloc injections, you can go on with your day as usual. The side effects are minor, which may include swelling, redness, or slight bruising at the injection sites, which will quickly fade.

Am I resistant to BOTOX?

If you have used BOTOX, Xeomin, or Dysport and are seeing diminished results, you may have developed antibodies to these neuromodulators. To achieve the skin-smoothing results you love, we offer the alternative of Myobloc injections at Northside Plastic Surgery. The smoothing effect appears more quickly, although you may need more frequent injections than you did with BOTOX or another brand, as Myobloc typically lasts about six to eight weeks before retreatment is required.

Re-Opening May 4th Update:

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken the basic CDC recommendations and have added the following extra measures to protect our patients:

  1. We are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for new and established patients.
  2. We ask all patients to stay in their car and call us upon arrival. Once on-site, your temperature will be taken along with a screening questionnaire, you will be provided hand sanitizer, and then escorted directly to an exam room or empty reception area. We ask all patients to wear a surgical mask or face covering to their appointment. As a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our large size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing.
  3. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the coronavirus.
  4. All staff are screened daily with a temperature check and symptom survey. All staff are required to wear a surgical mask, gloves, and perform frequent hand washing.
  5. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas hourly (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant. All exam rooms and highly touched surfaces are sanitized in between patients.
  6. Because of the increased sanitizing requirements, we have reduced the number of patients that will be seen every hour and spacing out appointments.
  7. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we do not have actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  8. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until June.
  9. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please reschedule your appointments and call your family doctor.
  10. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
