How It Works
Botulinum toxin works as an injection that blocks nerve signals to muscles. Since the muscle is prevented from contracting, wrinkles and facial lines then relax and are reduced in their appearance. The injection procedure targets certain muscles and takes just a few minutes to complete. No anesthesia is required, and patients generally experience just minor discomfort.
Some patients may experience bruising that is temporary as a side effect of these procedures. It’s important for patients to follow all instructions provided by their doctor for after-care, including avoiding lying down directly after the procedure and avoiding rubbing the treated area for a specified amount of time. This will prevent the botulinum toxin from moving.
Typically, it takes between three and seven days for patients to see the full effect of botulinum toxin procedures. In addition, the effects of relaxing and reducing lines and wrinkles in the face last about three to four months, on average. As the nerve signals gradually return to the muscles and they once again begin contracting, the patient will notice the return of facial lines and wrinkles as well. However, the procedure can be repeated once the effects have worn off. In many cases, lines and wrinkles appear less pronounced with each treatment.
