BOTOX® is made of up highly purified botulinum toxin and helps smooth facial lines and wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles. Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium and temporarily blocks chemical signals from the nerves to the muscles, which causes the muscles to relax and keeps them from contracting. Repeated muscle contraction can cause the formation of fine lines and dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX® targets these wrinkles by reducing muscle activity.
BOTOX® is injected into specific facial muscles to temporarily limit their ability to contract, causing a visible smoothing of fine lines. Injection sessions typically take between 10 to 20 minutes, and patients can easily schedule treatments during their lunch break as there is no downtime associated with BOTOX®. Results from BOTOX® injections can be visible within 24 to 48 hours of an injection session, and final results of the treatment will be visible one month following the injection session. Results typically last up to four months but can vary from patient to patient. Multiple injection sessions may be required in order to achieve the patient’s aesthetic goals.
