These injections are used to treat wrinkles and facial creases. Botox is a toxin made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, thus making the wrinkles relax and soften. The procedure involves injecting Botox toxins into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. The effects from Botox will last up to six months.
Botox is the most reputable neurotoxin available in the market today. As the oldest neurotoxin, its use and effectiveness have been confirmed by several studies. Botox contains additive proteins, which protect botulinum molecules from external influences. However, it has been suggested that the protective proteins may render the botox injection less effective since some people may create antibodies against these proteins.
The effects of all neurotoxins should last 3-4 months, sometimes longer. As we age, the duration tends to be shorter. There is a period of time that the injection takes to wear off and the body to regain the ability to trigger muscle movement. For this reason, it’s important to establish a neurotoxin regimen to maintain optimal results.
