When people talk about injectable cosmetic treatments, the first word that comes into their mind is “botox”. It’s important to know that Botox® is just one of the brand names for commercially-prepared neurotoxin called “Botulinum toxin type A”. This neurotoxin blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing contraction and softening wrinkles. Such a mechanism of action is also utilized in treating muscle disorders. In cosmetics, it is used to treat and smooth out wrinkles formed by facial expressions made throughout the years.

Say Goodbye To Frown Lines
Botox injections are used to remove frown lines by paralyzing the muscles that cause them. The effects of the botox usually last for about three to six months, after which the patient will need to have another injection. Botox treatment can be continued or stopped at any time.

Since Botox® molecules tend to spread through a smaller area due to a lower diffusion rate, it is ideal for targeted applications like between the eyebrows (glabellar), the upper forehead, eye wrinkles (crow’s feet), and smile wrinkles.
Only Botox® is approved for the treatment of medical problems, such as chronic migraine, Bell’s palsy, and eyelid spasms.
The answer to this question is difficult to predict as it will depend on a number of factors, including the patient’s age and health history. However, Botox generally lasts for 3-4 months.
