Botulinum Toxin

How does it work?

The botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin. These substances target the nervous system, disrupting the nerve signaling processes that stimulate muscle contraction. This is how the drug causes temporary muscle paralysis.

The botulinum toxin blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle cannot contract. That makes wrinkles relax and soften.

What to expect with treatment?

The Botulinum toxin injections will work on the muscles that are causing the wrinkles. These muscles will relax, thereby giving your face a smoother and younger look.

Some patients receiving the treatment report the injections feel like a little pinch. It generally takes 7 to 14 days to take full effect.
