Botulinum Toxin is a highly popular cosmetic facial rejuvenation treatment performed on both men and women of various ages. The lines, creases, and wrinkles that form on the skin due to repetitive muscles movements can make us look older than we are and more run down and tired. Botulinum Toxin is performed using a tiny needle which gets injected into the specified areas. Popular areas to be treated by Botulinum Toxin are around the eyes and mouth, the neck, the crow’s feet, and worry lines. Botulinum Toxin works by blocking nerve impulses–temporarily ceasing the muscle movement that is causing the lines.
Botulinum Toxin results start to be seen a few days after the injections with maximal results showing about a week after the injections. Botulinum Toxin only takes about 10 minutes to perform with results that can last from three to four months. Sometimes Botulinum Toxin is performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as dermal fillers.
