The Notox RF treatment is a minimally invasive procedure which uses safe, Mircro bipolar radio frequency technology to treat motor nerves which control frowning and lines of negative facial expression. Dr. Newman selects patients for this procedure who desire long lasting relaxation of their frown lines or forehead creases.
By using safe radiofrequency energy, the motor nerves can be deactivated for 6-18 months with just one treatment. It is the number one alternative treatment to Botox and other neuromodulators. Patients with strong muscles and those that have tried Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin and like the results but want greater longevity, this procedure may be right for you. Dr. Newman also notes that patients undergoing blepharoplasty procedures most commonly have unwanted frown lines which can be treated at the same time with the Notox RF procedure.
